Designer Challenge: Which Outdoor Seating? {Reader Edition}

Satori Design for Living readers put together 3 outdoor room designs using 3 different outdoor seating options. Check out these lovely outdoor spaces!

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!

Outdoor Seating Options

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.

Outdoor Seating Options for the Designer Challenge

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!

  1. 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!

  2. I am really digging Tiffany’s Moroccan Lounge!  I would totally sip a cocktail and hang out in that space!

  3. Hi Shauna, I would love to participate in this challenge.  How fun!!  Since I just discovered your blog, I hadn’t discovered these neat challenges.  I look forward to your next one.
