Vintage furniture suits the outdoors, especially when refinished with a more modern sensibility, as in the old hotel chairs designers Eric Ossart and Arnaud Maurières found for the terrace of the Taroudant, Morocco, boutique hotel Dar al Hossoun.
"They're plastic chairs from the '70s that were originally a shocking blue," says Maurières. "We repainted them gray-green," a color that picks up on the surrounding 100-acre olive grove.
Guests use the terrace primarily for cocktails at the end of the day, when the scent of the jasmine growing through the fence provides natural aromatherapy.
