Outdoor bliss

This is the time of year when we start to get a taste of the summer days ahead and remember how blissful the feeling of warm sun is.

Having the right outdoor furniture to help you to get the most out of the warmer months makes all the difference. Outdoor settings are a place for family and friends to gather, a place for entertaining and for relaxation, and the Design Depot in Mount Maunganui has your Kiwi summer in mind with their brand new outdoor collections.

The exclusive Cove and Coast ranges are both designed in New Zealand and are crafted with only the finest materials, specially selected to withstand our unique and often extreme elements.

“We know the importance of quality when it comes to outdoor furniture,” says Kylie from The Design Depot. “The New Zealand sun is amongst the harshest in the world.”

The Cove outdoor furniture range is produced in Indonesia, alongside some of the most premium outdoor brands in the world.  

With a design process that draws inspiration from the New Zealand lifestyle, architecture and indigenous traditions, Cove pieces will elevate your outdoor area and make your vision a reality.

Cove have a number of standout pieces - The Flex Sofa from their Flex Collection came out of their first collaboration with Auckland designer Ben Glass.

Crafted using teak to create a shape that gives a surprising lightness of form, this piece is sure to impress.

The Helena collection features CKD-MemoryRope, made from polyolefin threads woven to look like a rope. It is one of the latest trends in outdoor furniture materials, and with a soft elastic you’ll feel instantly relaxed.

The Kora sofa also features CKD-MemoryRope, providing a gorgeous look and strength. The inspiration behind this rope design was the handmade netting woven around bamboo or wooden frames that has long been used in New Zealand for crayfishing.

For a modern twist on the classic teak version, there’s the Hamilton Alu Compact outdoor couch - a perfect fit for contemporary surroundings. Featuring a powder coated aluminium frame and quick drying foam, this piece will be your new favourite, and is available in charcoal.

Coast pairs luxury with durability. With the majority of their products being hand-made right here in New Zealand to the highest possible standards, you can be assured you’re getting the very best. As the name suggests, Coast bring a distinctive style that is inspired by seaside living to create timeless pieces.

The award-winning luxury outdoor beanbags are quintessential to the Coast range. All beanbags are designed and made in New Zealand from marine grade Sunbrella brand fabric, and are guaranteed against fading and deterioration.

This pursuit of quality has seen them develop a worldwide reputation for excellence and luxury.

The Marine Bean Chair is an outdoor piece that is perfect for relaxing, whether it’s on the lawn, around the pool or down at the beach.

The Cove and Coast collections were created to bring you enjoyment summer after summer, and the uncompromising quality of these collections is unmatched. The Design Depot stand by these ranges and both come with a five-year warranty.

“We’re very lucky to live here in the Bay - one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand – and we’ve got just the outdoor furniture to complement that,” says Kylie.

“We love getting to know our customers and helping them to find the look they’re after.”
