A modern dining table and bright stools add character to a backyard.
This Toronto backyard, home to fashion designers Joe and Kimberley Mimran, was influenced by the structure and tonalities of Belgian gardens. It is mostly green, with tailored yew hedges and pops of white peonies. To introduce some colour into the yard, interior designer Diego Burdi set up this dining area with brightly coloured stools from Design Within Reach. The contemporary set juxtaposes nicely against the tarnished barbecue, which transforms into a stacked chimenea for cooler months.
