10 Easy Pieces: Sage Green Outdoor Chairs for the Parisian Garden

June 14, 2019

I’m known for being color-averse, particularly when it comes to things in and around my home. It’s all white linens and black steel lights and concrete patio furniture. Then I traveled through France and Italy for five months and started a love affair with the color sage green. It all started with the iconic Fermob chairs scattered around the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. Then there it was on Parisian balconies, on the pull-down shades in the shop windows of Avignon, painted doors in Milan, and as garden furniture in Rome. I’m now convinced there should be no other color in the garden, furniture- and decor-wise, than that perfect shade of muddy sage green. Here are 10 outdoor chairs, á la Luxembourg.
