Streets and cityscapes might be on the verge of a whole new look if quirky Russian designer, Tembolat Gugkaev gets his way! His latest design, the Softa Outdoor Bench, is a hybrid of a soft sofa and a street bench. The look of the bench is a sweet juxtaposition of a chesterfield sofa slash bus stop seat and can be made in a plethora of colors. Softa is constructed of fiberglass and carbon, and it is water, heat, cold, and bump resistant! “I know that someday the world will be ruled by beauty and harmony,” Gugkaev states, which is just the attitude that inspires his cleverly designed furniture, lighting, and accessories collections. Why not add an artistic element to our street benches? Quite possibly, a more inviting seating option, such as the Softa, might make us want to sit, and stay awhile.

Dedon is successful for continually releasing quality outdoor furniture with a nice indoor feel. The company’s latest edition is the Nestrest! We are hyped on the idea that you can hang one of these in your back yard and have a nice cozy spot to read a book and relax. Dedon is a reliable company known for the strength and durability in every piece of furniture, they describe the Nestrest as:
“An over-sized bird’s nest offering you a secluded, suspended sanctuary and unusual meeting place: it’s the perfect place for relaxation, meditation and open-air conversations. NESTREST is made of an especially strong DEDON fiber (4 cm wide, instead of 2 cm), guaranteeing a sturdy and solid weave with excellent properties: it shelters those within, allowing them to look out while preventing outsiders from seeing in – a perfect feeling of security!”
The retail at around $2,000 dollars, but for a one of a kind item like this, it’s worth the splurge!
