‘Tis the season for sunny days and impromptu picnics in the park. This summer, pack the Pinot and dine en plein air with these designer-approved picnic sets. Keep it casual, but modern when you kick back for an afternoon of friends, food, and fresh air. Leave the ratty blanket at home and tote your gourmet goodies without sacrificing style.
Portable picnic set Springtime was created by Dutch designer Jeriel Bobbe. Lamenting the lack of comfortable benches in his local park, the artist was inspired to build his own — including two seats, a folding table, and roomy basket space. Lightweight birch makes the set easy to transport by bike, and colorful accents help the design live up to its cheerful name.
