Glamorous Backyard Design

Chic plastic furniture is weather and dog-proof.

Interior designer Christine Ralphs loves to lounge on her back patio with her wire fox terrier Bitsy. Decorated in her trademark black-and-white colour palette, this outdoor sitting area — outfitted with Philippe Starck's polypropylene Bubble Club Sofa — requires little upkeep.
