In honor of outdoor month here at Apartment Therapy, we've sought out the most unique outdoor furniture. While some of these designs are not necessarily what we would choose for our patio, they are intriguing nonetheless.• 1
The Spaghetti Wall
bench by Pablo Reinoso at the Carpenter's Workshop Gallery
is an amazing sculptural feat as well as a functional outdoor bench. Fittingly, it is a unique edition, so if you are so inspired, you'll have to pony up a lot of cash, or make one yourself!
• 2 Grow your own furniture a la Chia pet with the Peddy furniture line from Mindscape. This innovative design studio out of Tokyo was featured on Treehugger, a favorite blog of ours.
• 3 This Moebius Chair comes to us via Seating Zone, a blog about--you guessed it--chairs.
• 4 Hospitality Design Source offers this resin weave Cheshire Chair, which gives a bright, whimsical flair to the outdoor chaise.
• 5 Reestore, a contemporary eco design studio, retrofits old cast iron tubs into colorful benches for the yard. We're not sure about an old tub as a planter, but we love it as seating.
• 6 This very organic looking chair makes us think of the way our wisteria vines crawled through the latticework in our backyard. This limited edition RD4 Chair LE is featured on Casa Sugar, and is made of woven recycled plastic waste material.
• 7 Ready Made magazine gives an instructional on growing your own couch, dubbing it "lawn furniture for literalists."
• 8 Crazed Junkyard brought this beautiful teak bench by Diamond Teak which touts "sustainable, plantation grown materials and environmentally friendly methods."
