06th Nov 2023 - Every year, the arrival of Autumn reminds us of the importance of lighting in outdoor spaces, particularly when the weather is relatively mild and pleasant enough for many people to want to continue enjoying the great outdoors, despite the dark nights closing in. Having the correct lighting design and specification in an outdoor space will deliver a whole host of benefits which combine to boost its appeal and – potentially – value.
Designer Margaret McCurry started with steel side frames that recall platform swings. Her inspiration for the seating was a picket fence around a Victorian era cottage and reflections of forms in the outdoor environments. In the Lakeside Seat, as in her architecture, the linkage is artfully transformed so, as she puts it, "the history and memory are there, but they're jogged a bit."
