As the summer continues to heat up, Room by Room with FormFire Glassworks heads outdoors with a great example of iconic modern patio-worthy furniture, the Bertoia Diamond Chair.
Harry Bertoia created this line of bent wire chairs in 1952 for Knoll. Although the grid has a light look, it is a sturdy and comfortable chair available with a basic seat cushion or fully covered. With chrome wires or powder-coated steel and a vinyl cushion, this is a great option for outdoor seating and indoor conversation areas alike. The airy mesh keeps your seating area from looking too heavy, and fits perfectly into the greenery of an intimate patio.
Continuing the outdoor theme, a minimalist glass birdfeeder hangs from a tree or patio cover. A set of adjustable candle sconces grace the garden wall, which also houses a powder-coated sculptural piece of art. A set of three planters sets atop your table with succulents of small herbs. Lets not forget your furry family members who can enjoy a drink of water from a simple modern raised bowl.
Next week I will choose a new iconic piece and give you my picks for accessorizing your modern home.
