Parties don’t always have to be fancy events with hors d’oeuvres and champagne. Sometimes what you want is to just relax with friends and family – and that’s great! Your home’s outdoor spaces are a perfect place to unwind with a cool drink and the company of loved ones. And just like every home has a different backdrop, be it a sprawling backyard, a chic apartment balcony or a stone terrace – at Williams-Sonoma we’re prepared with distinctive outdoor pieces to match. If maximizing your leisure time is high up on your to-do list, you might want to check out our Somerset Collection. Here’s why.
Being outside helps tension melt away. A soft breeze is refreshing and gets your mind off of work. If you’re surrounded by people who love you, the effect is even better. And that’s the essence of Somerset furniture. It’s designed to stay as natural as possible, blending in with the trees and plants all around you. Its solid teak wood provides durability and beauty.
The cool, gray, unfinished appearance of the wood makes it exceptionally warm and inviting. With a few string lights overhead, it seems like you’re reclining somewhere in Tuscany. That family ambience helps you feel at home instantly. Plus our Somerset pieces are really, really comfy. A colorful striped rug underneath adds a chic vibe.
Create a poolside haven of sun and fun. Kids can go crazy with a pool, and even adults can’t help but smile at the opportunity to go for a swim or float around with some ice-cold lemonade. It’s even refreshing just to lie down next to the water and let an arm dangle below the surface. Put it all together and you’ve got a great spot for families to make great memories together. When you’re done swimming, you can still keep an eye on your kids from the comfort of an all-weather Somerset wicker armchair. Don’t worry about changing clothes; dripping water doesn’t damage it. Our thick Sunbrella cushions dry quickly too, so they’re ready for other activities in no time.
Bring small-town life to the big city. If your apartment or house has a balcony, you have a great opportunity to infuse your day with a touch of fresh air. You can take advantage of the outdoors any time you want, but one awesome moment is breakfast. If you live alone, enjoying a bagel while looking out over the city helps you reflect and plan for the rest of the day. Or share a cup of coffee with a special someone for a couple of minutes before you have to take off. Those little moments conversing are worth their weight in gold, and remind you why you do what you do. A woven armchair with its ample seating area is ideal for relaxing in any of these occasions.
Invite friends over for an elegant meal on your terrace. Whether it features rough stone or smooth wood, a terrace has a special ambience thanks to its enclosed feel. All you need now is a table and chairs to dine underneath the stars. A rectangular Somerset teak table makes a striking centerpiece, but doesn’t command all the attention either. It elevates everything around it, from decor to lighting.
Put some food on the barbecue. A fire pit or patio is another great spot to have fun with loved ones. For one thing, you’re closer to the grill, so all those delicious smells spread your fame as an amazing chef. A warm fire makes everyone feel comfortable and also keeps guests toasty. Sing, play games, make s’mores – it’s up to you. Either way, there’s no reason for the party to end early. To make sure everyone has a place to sit, customize your patio with a large sectional. You decide how much seating you need and the layout you want. You can even create a U-shaped design so it’s easy to talk all night long.
