It may be a little crisp out there, but that’s no reason to stay indoors until the spring thaw. There are plenty of ways to enjoy your outdoor spaces in the colder months, especially if you’ve decorated with durable, beautifully designed furniture and accents like those from JANUS et Cie. A few friends and some fondue wouldn’t hurt either.
Browse some top picks below and get inspired to style your outdoor space for year-round entertaining.

Dress Up Your Deck
The days are shorter now, but as long as your yard is outfitted with chic, resort-level pieces, you’ll be motivated to get out there to absorb some Vitamin D before an early sunset. Look for clean-lined, sculptural furniture like the Azimuth Cross lounge chair, side table, and chaise longues from JANUS et Cie. Add some artful lighting, like the Waitsfield lanterns, to keep it all illuminated when darkness rolls around.

Create a Luxe Lounging Spot
Any backyard corner can be a lovely place to chill when you style it with high-design pieces with handwoven details, like the Knot side table, three-seat sofa, and cocktail table.

Set a Stylish Table
Dining alfresco isn’t just a warm-weather treat. With the right food, friends, and furnishings—for example, a sleek, teak Gina dining table with airy Knot armchairs and Anatra armchairs—it can be a year-round pleasure. Top off the look with elegant indoor-outdoor accents like the Ambrosia pomegranate sculpture and Veneer tray.

Spark Some Magic
The best backyard gathering spots have a few memorable pieces for kicking back. Uniquely shaped picks, like the Anatra high-back lounge chairs, make a striking statement. Pair them with aluminum Anatra side tables for a little edge.

Add an Indulgent Element
The secret to a dreamy deck? Bring in one eye-catching, impossibly comfortable piece. With its beautifully sloped shape and innovative construction (handwoven JANUSfiber over a powder coated steel frame), the Fibonacci Vantana double chaise is the ultimate spot to sit back and soak it all in.
