A bit like the Legos or TinkerToys of our childhood, Barcelona designer, Dani Miras, has created a modular garden chaise/table/chair thingamajig that offers infinite possibilities for configuring to fit your particular urban garden space.
Try it as a chaise with two adjoining side tables, one for your drinks, the other for your Kindle and laptop. Or assemble it as a low table for a backyard buffet.
Place low cushions by each of the personal tables and you have an outdoor office for 4. Gosh, I’m feeling creative.
Here you have a variation on the Victorian courting or conversation chair. You can arrange it so you and your partner are facing each other, albeit at a bit of a distance, which was of course what Queen Victoria had in mind. Setting the backs at one end creates a bench for two.
At the end of the day or season, just stack ’em all up neatly for storage.
