There are so many great outdoor seating options on the market right now that it was difficult to select just a few for this roundup of the best. That's why this year's annual guide features twelve outdoor dining chairs (versus last year's eight), half of which are under $100.
When I think of Spring I think of blue skies and warm breezes. Unfortunately, right now there are actually more grey skies and cold gusts. For now, I'll gaze upon this collection of blue outdoor chairs and live in the Springtime of my dreams.
So you want to create a little outdoor oasis but you're a little strapped for cash. Don't worry — it doesn't always take a lot of money to look like a million bucks. Here are seven sources for budget outdoor furniture to help you get started.
Whether you have an entire back yard or just a small balcony, an outdoor storage chest is great for both storage and extra seating. Use the chest to store gardening tools, seat cushions or pool toys and then, when the party's hopping, invite guests to plop down on top of it.
Patios are so ugly first thing in spring. Wet winter leaves are still caked in the corners, and everything is totally devoid of color until the plants turn green. So it feels really good to finally get your deck or patio to where it's usable and enjoyable.
I long for the days when we can eat outside on a deck, a patio or simply just in the yard. Sadly, apartment living (no balcony) limits my dream. Nothing tastes better than a glass of crisp white wine on a sunny day outside. Some day! In the meantime, I'll just add to my dream with perfect outdoor seating in all natural wood — perfect for sun bathing. Check out a few of my favorites, below.
Last week I rounded up a selection of porch swings perfect for lazy summer days. Porch swings aren't always practical - you need a very secure spot to suspend one. That's where outdoor gliders come in!
Earlier this week I looked at online sources for gardening supplies which, if you don't have a car or you're pressed for time, are great for getting your garden gear. But if your idea of a relaxing Spring Sunday is strolling through a garden center, breathing in the scent of wet soil and planning your own little outdoor space, this list is for you.
