HGTV Urban Oasis 2012: Bali-Inspired Terrace

White wicker outdoor furniture keeps the feel crisp and contemporary on this balcony terrace from the 2012 HGTV Urban Oasis home in Miami. Glass walls enclose the space without hindering the city and water views. The 8-foot terrace is generous enough to accommodate a small party of guests. Bali-inspired furnishings comprise a cozy seating area. The poly resin "vine"-wrapped, ebonized lounge chairs and side table were chosen for their style and durability. An oversized chaise, upholstered in all-weather fabric, provides the ideal sunbather's perch. A silkscreened pillow pays a subtle nod to sea life and serves up the needed dose of color. Live palms and greenery, planted in aluminum urns, soften the design of the seating area and provide an organic focal point.
