An outdoor oasis by Douglas Burton and Raed Alawadhi of Apartment Zero.

Bazaar- Fun in the Sun

A host of new, innovative products makes outdoor living a breeze

Bazaar- Fun in the Sun MAY/JUNE 2010

1. An Outdoor Oasis
Out of the terraced decking of a 1970s contemporary in McLean, Virginia, Douglas Burton and Raed Alawadhi of Apartment Zero created a modern, sophisticated al fresco living space. Three connected levels allow for separate outdoor rooms, including a seating area (pictured here) with sofas by Modern Outdoor, a sculptural rocking chair by Ron Arad for Magis and a fire pit by Extremis. Planters by Serralunga are filled with wild grasses. "People are replicating indoor spaces outside,” says Burton.“There are tons of options.” The following pages present some of the hottest outdoor accoutrements on the market today.

2. Form and Function
A sculptural quality lends JACLO’s Aqua Adagio outdoor shower a whole new dimension as functional art.  The minimalist shower column features a round waterfall spray as well as a foot wash. Made of durable, weather-resistant stainless steel in a polished or matte finish, it can be fitted with a valve for draining. Available through Ferguson. www.jaclo.com.

3. A Moveable Feast
Wolf’s gas grill is now portable, with all the same bells and whistles—and wheels to boot. The 30-inch, 36-inch and 40-inch grill carts offer two-position rotisseries, four-position warming racks, smoker boxes, LED lights above the knobs, halogen lights inside and more. Available through the Fretz Corporation. www.fretz.com.

4.  On a Curve
Designer John Caldwell’s Parkway Curvilinear sofa for Brown Jordan boasts a gracefully arced silhouette. The sofa’s five units—including an ottoman—can be reconfigured; the frame is aluminum in an assortment of finishes and the cushion fabrics are from Suncloth. Available through Sheffield Furniture & Interiors in Rockville, MD, and Sterling, VA; prices are per unit and start at $1,835 including cushions. www.brownjordan.com.

5. A Soft Glow
Stone Forest’s new Wabi Stone Oil Lamps are made of solid granite, hand-carved from small boulders with a hammer and chisel. They feature removable tops and hollow interiors with a brass insert for oil; a wick is included. $59; www.stoneforest.com.

6. A Bold Statement
Sunbrella’s new Horizons Collection offers lively indoor and outdoor fabric designs with a contemporary flair. It encompasses 17 new patterns, including jacquards, twills, damasks, florals and more. Through Calico Corners. www.sunbrella.com.

7. Poolside Perch
The Great Lakes Collection by designer Terry Hunziker for Sutherland is both elegant and eco-friendly. The Armless Chaise (below) is made from powder-coated aluminum and EcoPlex—a composite of recycled plastics that requires no waterproofing or staining. It’s pictured with cushions covered in Perennials Fabric. Through Hines & Co., Washington, DC. www.sutherlandfurniture.com

8. Holiday on Ice
McKinnon and Harris takes the party outside with the Wicklow Wine Cooler, which can chill beverages—and the occasional watermelon. Handcrafted from high-performance aluminum and powder-coated with an architectural-grade finish, it has an insulated ring that lifts out of the base so you can easily dump out leftover ice. It’s available in a palette of colors and runs on gliders. $9,800. www.mckinnonharris.com.

9. Party Lights
Illuminate your next outdoor event with the INVISILED Tape Light System by WAC Lighting, a flexible, easy-to-install LED system that accents fountains, pools, home façades and landscapes. The energy-efficient tapes are available in one-, five-, and 10-foot sections and come in amber, blue, green, red and white. Available through Dominion Electric, Arlington, VA. www.waclighting.com.
