Screen Porch Finish!

We finished the screen porch on Saturday!

The last step was stapling up the screen, and then placing the trim pieces on top of the screen.
When the screen gets damaged (likely!) we just remove the top trim piece and replace that panel.

Here's the finished product, minus the door.
Door is coming from the west coast and takes 8 weeks – of course :)

I came home from Happy Hour Sunday night and Mike had the lights on, reading his iPad
and having a glass of wine... Love it – that's why we wanted this!

Here are our table and benches from West Elm, paired with the Verner Panton chairs.
Hi + low!
This is the Bubble Club Lounger we ordered from Kartell a few months ago. We saw a photo of
this sofa with cushions online at DWR, but after calling them, and calling Kartell, the cushions
seemed to be discontinued. So we took the picture to someone local, and had them made.

Ours turned out really well – we upholstered the cushions in navy Sunbrella fabric.
Easy to keep clean, and protected from fading.

Ok, so what's next out here?
Here's the rest of the plan for furniture, which will finish out the lounge space:

These are Primary Poufs from Quinze + Milan. They come in a ton of colors...
I'm considering the dark purple to go with the cool palette of lime/navy we have so far out there.
The plan is to put 2 of these in front of the sofa, as a kind of coffee-table-that-also-doubles-as-seating.
And then the cherry on top - the Bertoia chair!! I've wanted one of these forever, and it hasn't ever worked out inside. We recently found out it's also sold as an outdoor chair, too.  I showed Mike a bunch of similar (less expensive) kind of things last night and the comment was "just go for the Bertoia" - yay. Probably going to go with the white, and not sure what color seat cushion yet. Thinking just one will round out that seating area on the porch.

Also working on a rug for the screen porch. Will post pics once we're all done!
