Rooftop Retreat

The Hargett Place Designer Showcase spotlighted trends in home furnishings through the eyes of different designers across the Triangle. The rooftop patio, designed by Homebridge Design, created a memorable outdoor space. “It’s an urban setting with a skyline, and we wanted to show a few different areas,” says company president Darren Brewer. The designers created three separate spaces: an outdoor dining room, a conversation area, and lounging space demarcated by a small rooftop garden.
In the dining area, the designers chose teak for its resilient outdoor application. The Summer Classics Croquet Collection offers a weathered finish that matched the color scheme of the dark gray siding.
The team used Sunbrella fabrics for all of the upholstery. The fabric company offers a huge collection of design options and the textiles are UV protected to prevent fading and degradation from sunlight.
“We tried to choose pieces that offered clean lines for the urban setting,” says Brewer. For the conversation area they chose Summer Classics Rustic Arm Chairs in the light gray, Oyster shade. Although the chairs have the appearance of wicker, the resin product is very resilient for the outdoors and lasts.
The wrought iron coffee and side tables appear to have stone tops but instead they feature a 5-layer composite product called Superstone that doesn’t require a sealant.
The designers wanted to stick with a minimalist, neutral color palette. The custom made throw pillows in shades of green add pops of color.
