Nine to Know | Outdoor Sofas

We’ve handpicked nine of our favourite outdoor sofas to maximise comfort and time spent outside in the warmer months.

Outdoor sofas create a place to convene and relax in an alfresco space. We’ve curated a list of outdoor sofas designed for the Australian climate with longevity and functionality front of mind.

Designed by Elia Nedkov, the Paola Lenti Kaba sofa features vibrant upholstery and a thin steel profile, part of the Kaba series for Paola Lenti, which includes an armchair and a pouf.

An evolution of the iconic chair of the same name, the Driade Roly Poly sofa by Faye Toogood, sees a sculptural cupping seat supported by cylindrical legs.

Francesc Rifé designed the Beam collection for Oiside, including the  Beam 2 Seater sofa, available at Robert Plumb. It takes “a geometric, almost architectural approach” to the traditional outdoor material of teak.

The Tribu Elio sofa takes its name from the Greek sun God Helios, inspired by the motion of light. Designed by Canadian firm Yabu Pushelberg, the handwoven seat creates a cocoon effect.

Luca Nichetto designed the Fanuli Ethimo Esedra Highback sofa with classical architecture in mind. The synthetic high-back seat mimics a woven technique to create a contemporary outdoor setting.
