Creating the Perfect Easy Pool Deck for Entertaining

When we set out to design an outdoor space for Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, our goal was to create a setting that was not only ideal for their vibrant entertaining needs but also a serene retreat that aligned with Ariana's aesthetic preferences. Their project exemplifies how an easy pool deck can serve as the perfect stage for both lively gatherings and peaceful, relaxing moments.

Design Philosophy: Balancing Entertainment with Tranquility

Tom and Ariana's project showcases the importance of understanding your (or a client's, if you’re a designer) lifestyle and personal style. By incorporating features that reflect both their need for a dynamic entertaining space and a desire for a calming atmosphere, we achieved a balance that is often sought but rarely mastered in many outdoor designs.

5 Easy Pool Deck Furnishings for Outdoor Entertaining

With the backdrop of Tom and Ariana's project, let's explore five easy pool deck furnishings that can transform any outdoor space into a versatile entertaining area:

  1. In-Pool Tanning Ledge loungers

These stylish loungers are perfect for those who enjoy relaxing in the pool while engaging in conversations or simply soaking up the sun. Their sleek design not only complements the modern aesthetics of any easy pool deck but also offers practical comfort without compromising on style. Available in multiple depths and styles with full color customization and chic accessories, these are some of our top-selling products for good reason.

2. Outdoor Sectionals

Large, comfortable sectionals are essential for hosting guests and creating an inviting atmosphere. For Tom and Ariana, the choice of a spacious outdoor sectional around equally expansive fire table meant their pool deck could accommodate large groups, making it an ideal spot for social gatherings.

3. Concrete Fire Pits

Adding a concrete fire pit to your pool deck not only provides warmth on cooler evenings but also serves as a stunning visual element. In Tom and Ariana's space, the fire pit acts as a central gathering spot, encouraging cozy fireside chats that extend well into the night.

4. Pool Deck Bar

For those who love to entertain, a pool deck bar is a must. It allows hosts to mingle with guests while serving drinks. In the case of Tom and Ariana, both skilled bartenders, the bar was not just functional but also a statement feature that reflects their personalities. To execute a pool deck bar, stock a bar cart and add in-pool bar stools.

5. In-Pool Ice Bucket Side Table

This innovative furnishing doubles as a side table and an ice bucket, ensuring that refreshments are always at hand. It's a practical addition that enhances the usability of the pool area, keeping guests refreshed and relaxed without them having to leave the water.

Integrating Personal Style into Functionality

The furnishings chosen for Tom and Ariana's easy pool deck were selected not only for their functionality but also for their ability to harmonize with the overall design aesthetic. Each piece contributes to a cohesive look that is both inviting and reflective of their personal styles, proving that with thoughtful planning, an outdoor space can truly become an extension of the home.

This approach to outdoor decorating ensures that your pool deck is not only equipped for any gathering but also beautifully tailored to meet aesthetic and functional needs, just as we successfully achieved with Tom and Ariana’s outdoor space.
