The W Hotel and Fatboy furniture

If you live Los Angeles or are going to be in the proximity of the W Hotel's Westwood location between May 27th through September 3rd,  you can join them for the Summer Cinema Series. Every Friday evening at dusk in the W's Wet pool

The area will be outfitted with Plasma screen TV's along with projection screens for your viewing pleasure.  The proceeds from the Summer Cinema Series are going to the Make A Wish foundation!

Kudos to the W Hotel!

Snacks are provided by the W's newly appointed chef extraordinaire  Dakota WeissEnjoy freshly popped popcorn, a variety of classic candies, artisan cheese plate and wine and gourmet potato chips.  Chill and watch the films under the stars with the ever cool Fatboy furniture company!

...is a funky take me anywhere blanket ! 

Just like a puzzle, each piece fits together in a unique way!

If you are looking for something a little more intimate, then cozy up under a blanket in one of the pool side Cabanas decorated by one of my favorite designers Thom Filicia.  (Yes, the designer from Queer Eye For The Straight Guy)

His style is genius!

No reservation is required and admission is free.  Donations to the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles are accepted.  For every $5 donation, guests will receive a ticket to be entered into a drawing for a one-night stay at W Los Angeles.  Doors open at 7:00PM and guests are advised to arrive early as space is limited and in high demand.  Dinner and cabana reservations are available by calling 310.443.8218 

For anyone who loves this idea but lives too far from LA,  tomorrow we are going to take a look at how to do this by your own pool or backyard !!

I love the look of stainless steel and the cool vibe it gives off.  It's clearly not for everyone but for those who can pull it off, it looks amazing. Things to think about with stainless furniture:

  1. It can discolour , causing those pesky marks that need to be cleaned, depending on where you live it can be pretty frequent.  A really important detail if you live close to the ocean, because the salt is the main cause of the discolouration .
  2. Little fingers love to touch things.  What could be more inviting than a nice shiny surface to touch and yep, if they are anything like my children, lick? If you are determined to have stainless then think flat not shiny.   

The most important thing to think about when making the choice to go stainless is to consider the manufacturer.  Make sure they have used the correct application of stainless for the furniture. It's my opinion that the better quality companies are extremely careful about cross contamination and ensuring that the stainless you are going to purchase is going to be as easy to care for as any other material you might purchase. (i.e. aluminum, teak, woven).  Last but not least, there are some companies that make an anti corrosion wax, just for that little extra protection.

Okay, that was the negative stuff about stainless steel.  Now, lets take a look at some of the coolest designs available!

Hello... Riluc is not just furniture but a total visual feast!  The Sticks dining table has choices for table support frames from bright to natural.

Fuera Dentro does stainless steel with a mixture of other materials. it looks amazing!

There has been much talk about the line between outdoor and indoor furniture blurring.  I truly see the lines becoming less defined with both these companies!

Simple yet spectacular furniture!
