Inventively cutting the classic picnic table in half, designerJair Straschnow creates his multifunctional Tablebench, with a top surface that doubles as a comfortable backrest when facing away—so it accommodates working, eating and relaxing. Ideal for smaller spaces such as a balcony or a city garden, it’s fashioned in quick-growing and thus quite sustainable bamboo, with an electro powder-coated steel frame for carefree outdoor use.

The bold and bulbous wood-burning Dutchtub hot tub grabbed our attention in 2013, and with a wider range of equally unorthodox, high-quality, yet essential outdoor furniture and lighting newly on offer from this Holland house of design, it was high time A+R roll it out stateside as the brand's first North American dealer. Perfect poolside at home or in hotels, or take the to-go Beach Rocker or Guidelight seaside or camping.
Quality of life is what drives the Weltevree family, and that includes their approach to design: from FSC-approved and -certified timber, much of it harvested from Dutch forests; to premium steel and finishes. To them, it’s about “indulging experiences that promote well-being. We totally believe life is about what you experience; not what you own.” We can totally get behind that.
