3. EXTREMIS Hopper Picnic Table
“Create nothing unless it is both necessary and functional. And if this is the case, do not hesitate to make it beautiful.” This principle always adhered to by the Shaker communities perfectly sums up what Extremis does. Extremis does not aspire to simply put beautiful outdoor furniture on the market. Extremis makes “tools” that make life better. More pleasant. These tools must always be functional. And above all always better than the products already available. In Extremis’ designs, every single aspect is the fruit of careful consideration. And each design is always a feast for the eye. The Hopper picnic table clearly bears resembles to the traditional picnic tables everybody knows, but as is typical of Extremis it offers extra comfort. The four pass through zones make it easy to get in and out of Hopper without having to lift your leg over the bench or disturbing your table-companions. Its slanted legs and tabletop edges are a clear reference to the hop poles that are so characteristic of the Westhoek region. If you turn around, you can use the tabletop as a comfortable backrest.

1.ROYAL BOTANIA Mozaix Daybed
It was the early 90’s when the Royal Botania brand was created. In those days, luxury and refinement was limited to the indoor spaces and rarely found outdoor. Their goal was to change that. Royal Botania has now earned an acclaimed worldwide reputation for creating a refined and diverse choice of outdoor furnishings. With offerings ranging in teak, ceramic, stainless steel and powder coated aluminum, each collection is engineered to offer a perfect blend of precision and functionality. Mozaix like its name suggests will let you create a mosaic luxury landscape to custom fit your outdoor space. The wooden grid—the heart of all seating and table options—is crafted from durable, reddish-brown mahogany that will aesthetically darken with time. Assembly offers boundless possibilities with four different base elements ranging from 50" to 89" in length, four different sized, comfortable seat cushions and low or high variant back cushions to play with. The latter ones hide an aluminum structure to keep the back cushions in place. All cushions feature a quick-dry core for optimum outdoor performance. Mahogany legs haven been indented to achieve a floating effect. Once you set up your basic seating, start decorating it with the Mosaix lava stone tiles available in eight modern colors, the round rotatable side table and the small table lamp or large pendulum lamp—each of these accessories will perfectly fit into one of the wooden grids. Should you be lacking some green in your outdoor space, affix a Mosaix planter or several of them. They are offered in two different depths to accommodate variants in root size. Planters, tables and lamps are made from lightweight powder-coated aluminum. To avoid tangled wires, the matching lamps are equipped with solar technology.
