Now more than ever is the time to bring the outdoors into your living space. At Home Resource, we have found the perfect designs that will transport you to a feeling of being on that vacation you have longed for these past 12 months. Experience the beauty and elegance of these six designer collections.

Gandia Blasco

Nothing speaks more to resort romance than a private dining space for you and your loved ones to eat, drink, laugh, and dream about the future. Gandia Blasco is a world leader in luxury outdoor furniture; in a reformist way, they understand how architecture unfolds and expands in an open environment.

The Mercendero is a pergola made with durable anodized aluminum and three plastic-fabric canvas shades that you can move lower or higher depending on the position of the sun or your need for privacy. The frame and the shades come in a multitude of color choices. This beautiful piece is a natural extension of the modern home, with its timeless good looks and the ability to create a little oasis by the pool, the garden, or the rooftop.


We cannot sell you the villa on the ocean, but we can furnish your beach “resort” and provide the pavilion to go with it. Outdoor furniture brand Kettal is synonymous with exclusive, customizable outdoor furniture, focused on great creativity and the essentials of high-quality craftsmanship. Since 1964, Kettal has produced outdoor furniture to the same standards as high-end and high-quality indoor furniture.

Cala is a high-backed armchair with majestic presence and transparent, light surfaces. The open weave of the rope provides a latticed window for visual privacy while maintaining a connection to the natural elements. The Boma sofa has minimalist lines and offers extreme comfort, constructed with an aluminum frame and proprietary fabrics.

Kettal’s pavilions are customized to your luxury lifestyle to create form, structure, functionality, and privacy. What better way to create your exclusive space at poolside, in the garden, or on your rooftop?


One of the most popular lines of daybeds at a beach resort are the Orbit and the Orbit XXL by Dedon. Dedon is the global leader in high-quality outdoor furniture, with its original designs and its propriety long-lasting fiber. All pieces are handwoven at their own factory, and Dedon oversees all aspects of their product creation, ensuring that every piece of woven furniture represents the perfect blend of Old World craftsmanship and modern technology.

The idea for the Orbit came to designer Richard Frinier while he was sitting in his garden in Southern California after watching Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. “I was amazed,” the designer recalls, “by the scene where the transport is on approach to the rotating space station, orbiting around Earth to the music of Johann Strauss.”

Perfect for sunbathing, stargazing, or the occasional change of scenery, Orbit rotates on easy-glide casters with just a gentle push. Block the sun, ban the rain, or just get some privacy with the elegant cloth canopy—it is no wonder that people want to jump right in. Fortunately, Orbit has plenty of room for people, pets, and plush cushions.


OK, so the beach resort pictured in your mind has a desert feel, but you still need a daybed that provides privacy, shade, great design, and a splash of color. This bed, Trampoline by Cassina, is perfect for you to lounge on during the day with a good book, a bottle of wine, and your significant other.

The world-renowned designer, Patricia Urquiola, was inspired by the little trampolines found in the gardens of homes in Greenland. The striking and elegant daybed has a stainless-steel structure that supports an “island” of comfort with foam base cushion, a set of three backrest cushions, and two types of additional cushions, all of which are covered with waterproof fabric. The handwoven nylon rope, which wraps the base and backrest, provides a distinctive decoration.

Knoll – Richard Schultz

Richard Schultz’s adjustable chaise longues have been punctuating resort pools and modern homes around the world for over 50 years. This refined look brings the clean lines and balanced proportions of indoor modern furniture to outdoor living.

In 1966, when Florence Knoll was seeking furniture that could stand up to the salty environment of her Palm Beach home, she contacted Richard Schultz to design her outdoor furniture. His expansive collection of furniture became iconic, known as the 1966 Collection. Made of sturdy aluminum with weather-resistant finish, the chaise longues have four adjustable angles to recline and large wheels to make them easy to move.

Janus et Cie

One of the pleasures of any beach resort is to enjoy dining with fresh local ingredients and a setting overlooking the sea. It could be slightly challenging to create a mountaintop vista like this in Sarasota, but the table and chairs from Janus et Cie could certainly enhance any pool or beach setting. For more than 40 years, Janus et Cie has been an industry leader in design-driven furnishings for the outdoors. The luxury furniture brand is known for their dedicated focus on outstanding quality, superior craftsmanship, and innovation.

The Amari dining chairs create an artful modern design paired with innovative architectural shapes. Their elegance elevates the dining environment, and enhanced comfort comes from a handwoven process using Old World techniques. The Fibonacci dining table combines geometric forms found in nature and a couture pattern-making process to create extraordinary beauty.‎
