Take It Outdoors! Everything You Need for an Alfresco Living Room
Create a space so warm and inviting your friends will never want to leave.
Whether you live in a region that offers a balmy climate year-round or a locale where summer really is the only time to relax in the open air (hello, New Jersey!), this is true: when the weather is beautiful, we all want to be outside. But if your patio resembles that of a frat house—comprised of mismatched, rickety chairs, a peeling table and a broken umbrella—well, no one’s going to want to join you out there. (Unless, of course, you have a son in a fraternity, in which case he’ll feel right at home!)
Enter: the outdoor living room. Here, the idea is that your indoor and outdoor living spaces are seamless in the comfort they give off—overstuffed couches? Check. Ample seating? Check. Plenty of counter and tabletop space for entertaining? Check!
If you’re working with a patio, deck or backyard, you want the space to be relaxing and inviting. Below we’ve curated the 15 items that will get you there. From a space-saving dining set and a bar cart on wheels to a folding end table and pretty-as-can-be bench (with storage!), these are the items that will make your next barbecue go off without a hitch.
