!Buenos Dias! ICFF Outside

Hola mis amigos! Hello my dear friends. We just returned from our vacation in Mexico where we enjoyed some quality R&R on Akumal Beach - land of the turtle! It was so beautiful and great to take a little time off. Maybe I'll put together a few photos that highlight our trip. But in the meantime I wanted to share some outdoor furniture from the ICFF!

It is at events & fairs like the ICFF that I realize just how vast the design world is... it's totally crazy, mind melting, and inspiring all at once. It's hard to figure out how to organize these posts... I originally thought "furniture" would be just one category (silly me!).  Then I started sorting through everything so now I decided to add another sub-category: outdoor furniture. It's fun and funky- perfect for a summer post in August!

Well I'm torn between the Dutchtub Original and the Dutchtub Wood... I mean you can carry the Original by bike and it come in so many colors....

Dutchtub Original - just look how romantic

Original by Bike... bring the party with you.

But the Dutchtub Wood shows how convenient it could be to stir-fry while soaking in the hot tub.

It's totally crazy and totally awesome at the same time. I want one. We could fit it somewhere in the yard I'm sure. All sarcasm aside though, I do think it's rather simple and smart. No motors to break down just a simple wood fire for relaxing. I wonder if you could use it as a pool during the summer, sans fire?

Cement look + lightweight is what they claim. I wish I saw these in person, guess I missed them. The brochure shows a cute little boy lifting up one of these bad boys. Pretty good fake actually - a lot of these designs would look great in a garden setting.

These are interesting, their booth and brochure from the fair shows these at a campsite setting, which is pretty cool I guess. But I'm more interested in how they use them at hotels, and in the pool...
