The Art of Outdoor Living

News & Insights
As summer approaches, the allure of outdoor living is enriched by the furniture we choose. Beyond just functionality, outdoor pieces now mirror the sophistication of indoor designs. Interior Architecture and Design Studio, AKI Design presents a curated collection of timeless, innovative and durable pieces set to transform your alfresco spaces this season.

Modular and Multifunctional

One of the defining trends this season is multi-functionality, emphasising the use of objects in multiple ways. By leveraging modular elements, homeowners can tailor spaces to meet changing needs, blending innovation with practicality.

A Mediterranean Touch

This year, a prominent source of inspiration stems from the modern Mediterranean style, bringing new outdoor collections evoking a summery vacation mood. Glazed ceramics and terracotta add earthy textures, infusing outdoor spaces with rustic charm.

Sculptural Elegance

Integrating sculptures into your outdoor environment is an interesting way to elevate the aesthetics of your space. Beyond mere decorative elements, they transform gardens, patios, and terraces into artistic sanctuaries.

Organic Allure

Echoing the trend from Milan in 2023, woven textures are gaining prominence. Luxurious cord designs offer a refined alternative to traditional wicker, harmoniously complementing the natural surroundings.

Summer welcomes the pinnacle season for outdoor aficionados. AKI’s handpicked selections will elevate your exteriors, merging contemporary design with the beauty of the outdoors.
