Creating a room without walls is a dream made easy with innovative materials and concepts. The lines are blurred between indoor and outdoor furnishings now, a welcome and indulgent new approach. Look for generously proportioned pieces. Deep cushions, graceful curves, and expanses of glass capture this season's trend. Most noteworthy are materials that have the look and feel of fine furniture...all designed to elevate your outdoor space.
Capturing the charm of natural wicker, hand-woven resin combined with sold cast aluminum frames delivers exceptional resiliency and all-weather durability. These new "delicate" designs stand up to sun, water and fluctuating temperatures with virtually no cracking or fading. Pair a settee or softly sculpted arm chair with pillows bursting with fresh color and put your feet up. Finish the look with unexpected accessories, normally kept tucked indoors, like your favorite collection of vintage vases, and the timeless whisper of gracious southern summers is yours.
European style drives another trend in elegantly brushed black scaled metals with a decidedly contemporary sensibility. Bistro comes poolside in sleek yet substantial architecturally conceived tables partnered with café chairs softened with lime tufted cushions. Hang a candle lit chandler overhead and settle into the late night breeze.
Ecologically sound, Plantation grown teak is a sustainable timber crop that is a natural choice for long-lived beauty and durability. Smooth to the touch, outdoor teak furniture ages from a young honey blonde to a soft sliver gray...all without warping or splintering through the years. The newest designs feature deep square seats, generous scale, and richness once found only in indoor rooms. Look for top-quality mortise and tenon joinery for a lifetime of style.
A patio living room can be used for outdoor entertainment all year long, not just for summer.

This outdoor room can be a comfortable addition right outside your backdoor or you can install a pathway of bricks, stones, or pavers leading to an area in the middle of your garden. You can hire it out but you get a feeling of satisfaction when you do it yourself. Pavers can be purchased in the sizes, shapes and colors that match the exterior of your house and complement your landscape. This outdoor patio room should be on a level surface such as a patio or deck and the pathways leading to it should be wide enough for two people to walk safely side by side.
This outdoor room needs to be covered with some type of protection from the heat and rays of the sun. Some suggestions are to build a roof or pergola, purchase some umbrellas, or install an awning.

Patio umbrellas are another option as they come in various sizes, shapes and color. These umbrellas and awnings come in many different fabric designs and colors to coordinate with the colors and designs on your outdoor furnishings.
