Summer brings with it the desire to walk outdoors, to have aperitifs and dinners with friends under the stars. Anyone who has a place with outdoor spaces knows it well: the summer outdoor area is the business card that allows you to present your bar, pub or restaurant to passers-by, encouraging them to stop. How to best set it up to intrigue new customers and win over regular ones? There are some practical tricks to start from, such as flooring and shading, and then move on to define the style to create a space that is functional and represents a real added value for the business.

Being an open space by nature, setting up a summer outdoor area requires you to take into account the integration with the surrounding environment. In urban contexts, it is good to delimit spaces with discreet fences to enhance the continuity with the city, while if there is a panoramic view, this can become a winning card thanks to panoramic windows from which to enjoy the show. To shelter from the sun – but also from some rain showers typical of the summer season – the most popular choices at the moment are parasols with side arms and bar pergolas.

The outdoor space is an extension of the internal one, and this means that the outdoor furniture must be chosen in harmony and continuity with what is found in the internal rooms. Continuity of style and atmosphere, while adapting to the functional needs of an outdoor space, will therefore be the coordinates to follow. Among the contract proposals in the Bontempi Casa catalog, there are several seats available in the double version for indoors and outdoors. An example is the Ines chair in lacquered steel, to which it is possible to add a padded cushion covered in outdoor fabric available in different colors. Its essential lines express a modern elegance that is never out of place, while the enveloping shapes of the backrest and armrests invite you to relax in conviviality. Then the pillow is the touch of comfort to be conquered by.

Summer outdoor area
Aria chairs with polycarbonate structure also suitable for outdoor use.

The principle of functionality will be the one to be inspired by in the choice of shapes and materials for tables and chairs with which to compose the furniture of the outdoor area. In addition to lacquered steel, the most suitable materials are plastic ones such as polypropylene, anti-scratch and anti-stain, which combines solidity and lightness. The result is chairs with a modern and versatile design such as Aria, resistant to sun and rain as well as easy to move and store inside when needed. It is available in two versions: transparent for a casual elegance, but also to combine it nonchalantly with unusual tablecloths or colorful flower vases, or white for a creative touch.

From seats to tables, among the new proposals in the Bontempi Casa catalog there is one that is perfect for outdoor furnishing of bars and restaurants. The Moon table, square or rectangular, has a modern and essential design that fits perfectly with the atmosphere of these settings. The lacquered steel structure can be declined in various colors, while the top can be chosen in a range of materials that includes material melamine, glossy or matt anti-scratch glass, SuperCeramic and SuperMarble. The ideal combination? The one with seats that share a linear, agile and modern design.

Which are the rules for choosing pieces of furniture for outdoor and making the most out of them? Your garden can be considered an extension of your home and furnishing it can be a fun challenge. With the right furnishings, in fact, we will have a real outdoor lounge where you can spend a nice time during summer.

Garden furniture: choose materials designed to last

Sun, rain, wind… Garden tables and chairs must resist all of them as well as any food stains or signs caused by daily use. Bontempi Casa outdoor tables have metal structures for outdoor use. Otherwise they are made of lacquered metal that ensures long life and resistance to external aggressions. The top, on the other hand, is made in layered laminate, Fenix, crystal, SuperCeramic or other materials chosen to combine durability and elegance.

Garden furniture: eye on style

We will never repeat it enough, the outside of your home represents a real extension of the house, therefore it should reflect its style.

Freak stackable chairs

For a traditional and classic style, the ideal choice are garden tables and chairs with elegant and refined lines coloured in neutral tones. When the in-house furniture is inspired by a more modern style, however, you can dare with a pop touch of bright tints, perhaps combining a few chairs in different shades, that should be chosen according to your mood and current trends.

Garden small table and chairs are purchased especially in the months that anticipate the summer, just in view of the greater use of external domestic spaces. Wood is one of the most used materials for creating outdoor seating: it is often used only for the structure, that is then covered with waterproof fabrics, in particular textilene. This new generation fabric is not damaged by contact with sunlight, rain, ice, snow, salt and chlorine. Then there are the bamboo chairs for outdoor environments, 100% natural and with an exotic allure, very resistant material. But the most popular products are undoubtedly the colorful garden chairs, such as Galaxy, the brand new Bontempi Casa proposal.

The game “Witch says color” is another classic of the children fun games: hide in the park some Galaxy chairs of different colors, and let the children play to find those of the color required by the “witch”. Do you have a swimming pool? Why not take advantage of it then!
