Survey: Sofa on the Porch?

The Mid-Atlantic is a nice mixing zone between the North and the South, and this is often reflected in home décor choices. One mark of the Southern influence is the number of sofas and outdoor furniture on porches and balconies. We think we could round up a nice hot debate on whether or not you would put one in your outdoor living space...

What do you think? Would a sofa be a way to invite warm, friendly conversations with your local neighbors? Or have you seen some that just look too tacky? What do you think works best?
