We've just sold our teak dining set and loungers
and replaced them with some cast aluminum and marble pieces.
I kept reminding D. they would never blow over
as he and three other guys huffed and puffed them home :)
I'd show you pics but they are still boxed and living in the garage
as we are planning a deck overhaul this year...
show you once it's done!
Teak used to be what you bought if your wanted decent quality outdoor furniture,
but I'm not a fan of the weathered grey look and oiling them twice a year was becoming tedious...
The new stuff was an incredible deal at Costco, zero maintenance and ultra comfortable.
But if money was no object I may have done a little more shopping around.
I'm blown away by what can live outdoors these days...
West Elm does such a great job of merchandising -
these pics leave me longing....
What I am seeing more and more is a trend towards full scale sofas outdoors....
this almost looks like something you would find in a living room..
This year's clever Catalina series from Carte and Barrel is slipcovered!
Fantastic idea, no?
Never one to be outdone, Restoration Hardware has created a slipcovered, outdoor version
of their current signature style seating to the outdoors, as well.
I know that between the gangs of popsicle toting scoundrels and muddy pups that roam our yard
I'd be cleaning these covers a little too often here,
but a girl can dream :)
What are you lounging on this summer?
