No other city does patio season quite like Toronto. Known for our harsh winters that can linger until April; Torontonians are always ready and willing to get out the stored patio furniture at a moments notice.
Our love of eating, relaxing, and entertaining outdoors reaches from our own personal space at home, to consciously seeking out cafe’s and restaurants that have patios! Perhaps an interesting Canadian-ism, but there is no denying backyards, rooftops, and patios are part of our DNA. Whether it is your own backyard, Muskoka cottage or favorite Toronto haunt, spending a little time outdoors with a glass of lemonade or Rose in the sun is a luxurious equation.
Since it’s that time of year lets look at some design ideas for inspiration
GO Luxe with Vincent Sheppard
We had the pleasure of outfitting the Miami Edition Hotel with inviting yet luxurious outdoor furniture. The classic design of the Lloyd loom Dovile dining chair by Vincent Sheppard can turn any outdoor space into an oasis of style and comfort. And for lounging we love the style of their new Wicked lounge chair and sofa.
Go Classic with Casagrande Rattan
If you are from Toronto or Southern Ontario you will know Balzac’s coffee. Their patios with traditional TON furniture are synonymous with Parisian terraces, and perfect for that outdoor coffee when you can steel some time with a girlfriend or work mate.
Go Timeless with TOLIX
If you love the famous Tolix A chair why not try a pop of colour and put it in the garden? The raw steel and painted seating adds a classic French aesthetic to any outdoor space.
Go French with Fermob
The Fermob balcony table is an ideal solution for tight quarters. Available in 24 colours this chic design gives you your very own table for two, suitable for the height of balconies and elegantly suspends from any railing.
