3When envisioning this project, Principle Designer Nar Bustamante introduced the design of an elevated diagonal ridge beam. The rest of his team, including Lead Designer Ashlee Richardson and Interior Designer Alia Richards, knew they had to overcome major challenges when dealing with the abstract angles and custom steel connections that the design would entail. Nar explains that his inspiration came from his client’s personalities and unique tastes, and therefore it was important “to not do the normal or what is expected in this space.” He says further, “I knew I could play with these concepts and the clients would be receptive.” Motivated by their young clients, Nar and his team embraced their love of Dekton surfaces and successfully delivered the Dekton Sail Lounge, which is full of vibrant outdoor characteristics that create an elegant and warm home setting.

The Dekton Sail Lounge highlights the beauty of the outdoor living movement that is smart for homeowners who wish to take advantage of California weather and expand their living space. Nar and his team, wanting to stray away from traditional outdoor patio settings, took nature into deep consideration when designing this space. The team explains, “When we create a place where living takes place, we have to look at the natural elements of the landscape–sun, wind, fire, rain, hot and cold. The beauty of raw materials and

The beauty of raw materials and Dekton surfaces allows us to join nature in its eclectic delivery of the seasons.” Keeping in mind the weather and natural elements, Nar and his team used materials that have the ability to be hosed off and still go perfectly with the space and natural setting. Lighting was also a major factor in the simple, natural elegance that this setting encompasses. The design and nature are once again brought together with the warm and natural Kelvin temperature lighting. All of the

The design and nature are once again brought together with the warm and natural Kelvin temperature lighting. All of the lighting can be dimmed so the mood can be controlled, and there are two lights placed in the structure with the purpose of highlighting the Aura fireplace, the focal point of the structure. With the combination of the teak furniture, industrial metals and concrete, and the raw materials of wood, steel, and Dekton, the structure is both natural and visually rich. “Every component is custom fabricated for this project,” Nar explains.

“Every component is custom fabricated for this project,” Nar explains.  With a setting like the Dekton Sail Lounge, family and friends can enjoy each other’s company comfortably in the relaxing outdoors.   Another challenge Nar and his team were faced with was making this outdoor setting as comfortable as if it was indoors. While the lighting, rustic materials, and open frame helped this space blend with the outdoors, other elements give the structure the comfort of being inside.

Nar explains that the huge four posts and support beams were purposefully that size to give a feeling of a safe environment. The fireplace and placement of cozy furniture were also chosen to replicate the setting of an indoor room. The Dekton fireplace, custom designed Dekton coffee table, lounge sating, and Dekton Trilium dining table were all important pieces in crafting this stunning and unique outdoor living room.

“Dealing with natural elements is a challenge,” says Nar, who was able overcome the challenge by “making it look clean without using standard commercial outlets.” Giving the structure a “clean” look was vital in bringing the indoor warmth to the great outdoors.]

After receiving overwhelming local and international praise on their magnificent project, Nar and his team are very proud of what they accomplished together. “The whole part creates emotion. I am most proud of our ability of putting all these concepts together in one space and it working,” says Nar proudly, “that it’s resonating with people is special.”
