Refined and relaxing: sofas and benches for outdoor areas

From rooftop terraces of high-end offices to seating lounges in a resort hotel restaurant, these elegant outdoor sofas from the Clippings online catalogue ensure your design concept looks outside as elevated as inside.

Hardwearing, synthetic fibre is twisted into cords and hand-woven around a curved aluminium frame to create the Cricket two-seater by Italian outdoor furniture brand Varaschin. The metal is powder-coated to a simple monochrome finish, while the rope is available in brown, white and sandy beige. Either let the vertical weave detail take the centre of attention or top with a back cushion for added comfort.

The Lagarto series by Spanish outdoor furniture manufacturer Isimar brings a subtle playfulness to the terrace and garden. Its slim metal frame with a zig-zag line, available in 27 colours, feels delightfully whimsical, with the generous seat cushions generating a contrast in proportions. The collection also includes side tables and chairs, so you can style a consistent look.

Cross 2 Seater Sofa by EMU

A re-edition of the series designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Italian brand EMU, Cross is an outdoor sofa combining soft lines, formal rigour and a sophisticated combination of materials. The legs, characterised by an X-joint, are made of die-cast aluminium, are attached to the seat by a four-way joint. The chair and back have a tubular steel structure, while the seat and backrest are characterised by a polyester webbing, a tribute to the craft tradition of the Lake Trasimeno basket-weavers.

The Paon Bench unites the playfulness of traditional French metal furniture with a Scandinavian touch, expressed through the refined silhouette and the use of wood. It's produced by Houe, using powder-coated metal for the frame and bamboo slats.

Space Sofa by Cane Line

Space is a modular sofa collection by outdoor furniture expert Cane-Line. Danish studio Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen designed the series to create generous lounge landscapes that won't overpower a space due to the pared-pack aesthetic. With its rounded corners, low back rest and low frame, Space feels clearly defined and casual at once. You also have the option to specify the moduls with integrated side tables.
