When the sun is shining and you have outdoor space, there are few things better than spending long, lazy days outside, soaking up the heat and dining in the open air.
If you have the right outdoor furniture, that is. Because lounging outside can be as inviting as kicking back in a well-appointed living room — or as awkward as trying to get comfortable on a worn-out sleeper sofa.
For advice, we talked to interior designers, landscape designers and furniture-industry representatives about exactly what you should consider before furnishing your outdoor space.
If you're lucky enough to have some kind of outdoor space in your home, now's the time to decorate and furnish it. Even the smallest space outside can do wonders for your mental health, and if you have some that you've yet to furnish, now would be the time to do it. Now that spring is here, it's time to take full advantage of the gift that is outdoor space. Some furniture is practical, but we went looking for supreme comfort.
