Lighting can modify the visual perception of a space. It can be used to create different environments and to illuminate spaces devoted to different activities. It is, therefore, a key element both inside and outside our home.
For outdoor illumination that will allow us to enjoy long evenings in the open air, the best method is to combine good general lighting with spot lighting and other types of decorative lighting, to provide each space with the light it needs for its different uses.
The reading and dining areas of the terrace or garden should be well illuminated with warm light. If you want to give a more intimate touch to the table at which the diners sit, you can add candles. If, on the contrary, you are looking for a more festive atmosphere, it might be a good idea to use fairy lights: you can roll them around a pillar or hang them over the table. Continue Reading

From POINT we offer you different keys to create a stylish outdoors dining room which can be adapted for any occasion.
Firstly, it is advisable to place the dining room near the door, this will make the access indoors more accessible. It is very important to provide this space with some shade, so it can be used at daytime or at night, since the heat can be an annoying guest. For this, it should be on a covered porch, under a pergola or an umbrella. OMBRA and ROMA are the collections which POINT offers to protect yourself from the sunniest hours. Continue Reading
