OUTDOOR LIVIN’ AND LOVIN’ IT!

 

It’s no surprise that outdoor living has taken on a whole new meaning in the last few years.  No longer just “pool furniture” or a dining table with an umbrella, people are looking for full on living spaces replete with the comfiest of comfy furniture and the look and feel of a cozy indoor setting.  All with the added benefit of the ambient outdoors – a “vibe” that just can’t be duplicated indoors.

Because you can take the indoor vibe out of the house, but you can’t really bring the outdoor vibe in…

At least not with the same result you get in the true outdoors.  And, face it, most of us would rather be outside than inside when dining, entertaining, etc…

So when considering your outdoor living space think along the same terms you would if it were an indoor living space.  Comfy, stylish furniture just like you’d have indoors.  You wouldn’t want your guests sitting around on stiff uncomfortable furniture indoors would you?   So don’t settle for  boring, uncomfortable “patio-esque” furniture outdoors.

And you wouldn’t want an unattractive, boring style indoors either would you?   Don’t settle for that outdoors either.  Look for stylish pieces that are in balance and scale with the area it’s going to be placed.
