Cozy Outdoor Living

Hampstons style outdoor space

When we built our home, we set out to create comfy, cozy areas for spending time outside: A covered patio complete with daybeds, an entertaining deck with a full table and chairs, and a backyard space complete with a wood-burning fireplace.

The final (and trickiest) space to furnish was our backyard space around the wood-burning fireplace. It’s the perfect spot to unwind after a long day while our kids run around the backyard – especially since it gets shady in the afternoon! During the winter months, we love huddling around the fire to roast marshmallows for a snack.

I really wanted to find something with black metal that was different from what I usually see. Fortunately, while browsing CB2, I found it! The Breton sofa and chairs were exactly what I wanted. I love their look. They fit in perfectly, complementing the black accents from the hardware and playhouse well.

We opted for a cement table and picked out three matching wicker lounge chairs. I threw a simple Euro-sized pillow on them. They have a black and white weave and they’re quick and easy to rinse off, making them great for kids!

These pieces would look great anywhere, no matter your design aesthetic. I think they’d work for a modern or rustic space. Plus, they come in a variety of sizes so you can find one to fit your space.

And my favourite finishing touch for this space? This oversized pouf adds warmth and texture, and I think it’ll be perfect for the moments when we want to sit close to the fire and roast marshmallows.

As the summer season comes to an end, I can’t wait to see the next collection of product in-store. If you live in Vancouver, you have to check out CB2. I love that it’s at the end of Robson Street. You can stroll down to the end of the street and see the entire collection in person – they’ve got everything from glassware to furniture. It’s huge! And so much fun to explore… You’ll definitely want to check it out!
