Designer Challenge: Which Outdoor Seating? {Reader Edition}

If you remember about a month ago, with the suggestion of one of my readers, I opened up the Designer Challenge to Satori Readers. Fortunately, Olioboard wanted to join in and offered to award our top three picks a 6-month upgrade to their Pro version. How fun!

Readers were given three outdoor seating options, including the Catalina Lounge Chair, Geometric Pouf and Nantucket Chair. They were asked to create a mood board using one of them.

To help select the top three mood board entries, I enlisted the help of two past Designer Challenge participants, Nancy from Marcus Design and Jackie from Teal and Lime. I just love these outdoor spaces sent in by Sheila, Shantelle and Tiffany!

Is there one of these outdoor spaces you can envision spending time in? Which seating option most appeals to you?

Special thanks to Olioboard for sponsoring the prizes for this challenge!

    I like really like them all, but can see myself spending the most time relaxing in Tiffany’s Moroccan Lounge. Maybe it’s the wine glasses ;-) The seating option that appeals to me most, though, is Shantelle’s. Loooove that chair!
