Design for gardens, terraces & balconies
The summer is almost here and this year we are even more anxious than ever before to go out and live it to the full. After having spent so much time at home over the last few months, the lucky ones with a terrace or even a balcony will understand the sense of release that the outdoors provides. Even if it’s just a ‘Juliet balconies’ the difference that opening a window makes is notable, especially during confinement. The following pieces are all inspired by Barcelona outdoor culture and sensibility, whether it be play, lighting, sitting or just enjoying the open air.
We've made a local selection of products and brands, everything is either made or conceived in Barcelona.

Sustainability and respect for the environment are the hall marks of Let’s Pause. All the furniture and accessories are inspired by natural materials that are easily recycled and replaced by nature. The products are versatile with a marked organic sensibility, many can be used indoors as well as outdoors, like these benches and stools Ponza, Amalfi and Patara. Add cushions for seating on a terrace, or without cushions perfect for extra storage. No two pieces are exactly the same. Just like no two terraces are exactly the same.
Ponza 3 seater, all products are made by hand with hand-cut wood and therefore have slight irregularities, such as different thicknesses on the legs of a table or a stool. Poplar is a light wood and we let the original wood knots be part of the design.
