Designing Outdoor Spaces

Paradise Valley, Arizona is a much-desired community east of Phoenix tucked in between Mummy Mountain and Camelback Mountain. Its beauty is so legendary that many celebrities and sports stars like Muhammad Ali, Shaquille O’Neal, Stevie Nicks, and Dan Quayle call it home. For one Paradise Valley couple though, they just wanted to create their very own slice of paradise.

We first met the couple when they came into our Scottsdale showroom to get some ideas for outdoor furniture for their backyard. There they consulted with one of our design specialist, Robin Rodriguez. They expressed that they have an expansive backyard with several gathering areas that they wanted to place furniture in. Some of the areas on the property that they wanted to highlight were a long covered patio, a very large pool, a built in fire pit and a large Koi pond.

The Large Swimming Pool

While they have a large covered patio and a very large pool, they didn't want to over crowd the spaces with lots of furniture. Instead they wanted to create pockets where people could gather.

The fire pit area is reserved for the chilly nights. They wanted swivel club chairs to ensure the ability to enjoy the view of the mountains that surround the home.

Around the property you'll find many strategically placed chaise lounges and side tables. They love to read and they like to have options depending on the light that day. The chaise lounges were a bit old and showing wear so instead of buying new pieces Robin just redid the cushions.

Putting The Pieces Together

Their home’s interior rooms feature different furniture that is exclusive to that room. They wanted the same for their outdoor areas. The challenge for Robin was to find different collections to fit in each area to compliment and coordinate with the adjacent interior rooms. After several conversations and trips to the home they began a project that would take two years to complete.

As you can tell this home has a tremendous amount of space. Our designer Robin wanted to make sure that every gathering area had its own creativity and had a collection that would capitalize on how the owners wanted to entertain in that area.

The Denpasar collection from Century features rich textures. The scrolling arms and back of the chairs accent the vibe of the luxury and elegance.

Robin said she very much enjoyed this project and working with the owners. She searched for items that she has only used at this house truly making this home's outdoor areas one of a kind.
