Outdoor furniture


While a swimming pool is undoubtedly a plus for any home, the real added value is the environment surrounding the pool. That is, the poolside space, which lends itself to truly exclusive moments of sharing, to be enjoyed with your family, friends or special guests. With this in mind, the choice of furniture is vital: chairs, tables, accessories, all elements that contribute to the creation of a wonderful poolside décor.

How to choose chairs for the garden with a swimming pool

When choosing poolside furniture, chairs play a ruling role: they must be comfortable but also give character and style to an open, cool, summery environment. First of all, the choice of chairs must start with their material: wood, metal, resin, plastic, the possibilities are many. Then the available space has to be taken into account and this impacts on the quantity of pieces to be purchased. Comfort is of course paramount for a chair, as is maintenance: considering that outdoor furniture is always exposed to weather phenomena, it is worth opting for durable solutions. A perfect example of the balance between aesthetics and practicality are the chairs and stools from the Moodcollection.

How to choose tables for the garden with a swimming pool

The table is one of the most important design items in any home. And so is the poolside décor, as it will have to accommodate moments of sharing with family or friends. It is therefore a good idea to opt for a versatile model that is not too bulky: use it as a countertop for a cool drink, a coffee or a drink. But also able to host a lunch or dinner, not too long, nor formal.

It is important to choose a model in line with the style of the remaining furniture in order to create a even layout visual-wise. For those who have enough space, it is interesting to consider setting up a gazebo: in that case, the table – protected from the sun – increases in centrality and importance, and lends itself to even longer lunches and dinners. Among the many models of poolside tables, one that stands out for its elegance and versatility is undoubtedly the Moontable.

Poolside decoration: how to create a relaxing atmosphere

When furnishing a space with a swimming pool, whether in-ground or above-ground, it is important to set up a comfortable environment: chairs, tables, parasols, furnishing accessories, must convey harmony and relaxation. In this sense, it is desirable not to occupy too much space: the poolside furniture must allow everyone to move around freely, without creating obstacles in accessing the pool.

Pool furniture: if it is not functional it’s not beautiful

When choosing poolside furniture, one must bear in mind that this is an area that is easily exposed to water splashes. This, together with weather factors and sunlight, can lead to wear and tear of the furniture over time. Therefore, it is better to favour chairs, tables, and furnishings created for the outdoors: with specific materials and workmanship, able to withstand the climatic elements. If you want to go for wood, you can opt for teak or rattan. Alternatively, one can opt for metal or steel furniture, which have the advantage of requiring little maintenance. Wicker solutions have a timeless charm, but are often more fragile in terms of weather resistance.
