Calma Lounge Chair by Stua, from Stylecraft

Long sunny days, lush gardens and poolside idyls can be elevated with furniture pieces defined by modern design and a refined aesthetic from Stylecraft.

With the promise of a warm spring followed by glorious summer nights on the horizon, outdoor time is – finally – back on the table for many in the southern hemisphere. But before too long, the peak of summer will be upon us, and these outdoor furniture offerings from four iconic designer brands at Stylecraft will inspire the perfect outdoor setting for your home.

Celebrating 70 years in 2023, the Stylecraft journey has been steered by a commitment to modern design principles, excellence in craftsmanship and exceptional customer service. Stylecraft has unwaveringly upheld the principles of contemporary design to provide products of outstanding quality, which can be experienced in person at one of its seven showrooms around Australia and Singapore.

Here’s our pick of the pieces we’re coveting for an outstanding outdoor space.


Established in 1983, Stua remains a family-owned furniture design and manufacturing enterprise hailing from the heart of Spain.

Stua’s reputation for excellence is rooted in its steadfast dedication to crafting forms that stand the test of time and a timeless design ethos. Stua’s visionary designers Jesus Gasca and Jon Gasca have woven together a tapestry of aesthetics and engineering throughout their careful work, and this selection of pieces exemplifies that.

The Calma Lounge Chair elegantly combines the gentle relaxation of a sun-drenched hammock with the comfort of an upholstered lounge chair, suitable for both indoor and outdoor settings.

Comfort and durability were paramount to the design, which features a suspended sling with a cushion supported by a stainless steel frame. A headrest cushion and compact laminate armrests ensure maximum cosiness.

Available in a range of outdoor-ready fabrics with a black or white powder-coated stainless steel frame, the Calma Lounge Chair can also be stacked for convenient storage.
