A New Spin on Outdoor Furniture

If you’re looking to put a new twist on a space, consider going inside out (or vice versa). As evidenced by these two ideas, some designs work just as well in the kitchen as they do on the patio.

Above: Who knew a picnic table could be so stylish indoors? Originally seen on Design Sponge, Nikole Herriott created a cozy eating nook by filling this narrow space with a rustic outdoor table and bench.

Above: With a sleek design and durable cedar body, this Cross Legged Picnic Table makes for a perfect option on the yard; prices start at $479 for the table and $159 for matching bench at All Picnic Tables.

Above: Created in the Mexican city it was named after, The Acapulco Chair incorporates skilled weaving and a comfortable round structure. Originally designed in the 1950s, the chair has been reinterpreted in the United States by numerous manufacturers. Today it is available in an array of sizes, colors and material coverings. As seen in the Hotel San Josť (above left) and a Spanish loft (above right), it lends a retro vibe to an interior.

Above: The iconic piece seems just as natural outdoors as well.† At the El Cosmico in Marfa, Texas, a rustic model provides a seat in the sun.

We’d love to know: Do you mix indoor and outdoor furniture in your home?
