Also SpottedAs an outdoor tableThe trestle table is a classic outdoor dining table. It comes in large enough sizes to fit a group, and the independent and foldable legs mean it can be easily moved as needed or stored away.
Zone: Outdoor diningMood: Vintage chicWhy it works: An exterior wall clad in recycled brick required a decorative touch to personalise this outdoor dining zone. Aussie design team Timothy & Rebekah Cichero of One Small Room sourced this vintage sign, giving a retro feel to the cosy space. For vintage items like this, check out salvage companies and antique furniture stores; or for a similar look, mount a cinematic light box on a wall. So popular, these light box ranges are now available from the likes of hip Page Thirty Three or style-savvy Kmart.
Go outdoorsAs relaxing as it can be to chill out inside the house, summer offers you with a nice alternative. Embrace nature and get some furniture outside. A few chairs and a small table is all you need to have a beautiful and functional outdoor living area that you can enjoy for months to come.
And don’t forget to look out for old shop signs. Search secondhand stores and online. Ones that light up are extra-special.
