So our next step starts with the fun part of the plan, selecting the furniture.  There are many things to keep in mind when selecting your furniture.  The climate, the exposure to the sun, materials – steel, aluminum, all-weather wicker  and teak for example.  You also want to consider the maintenance of the pieces.  This is generally where I lose people.  Maintenance for outdoor furniture, won’t it last forever? Nope.  It is durable, but if you sat 365 days a year outside in the elements, I doubt you would be looking so fresh in a few years.  So, invest in covers for the furniture and make the investment last longer.  Also, consider the manufacturers warranty – sometimes the difference in pricing isn’t just quality, but it also maybe the warranty behind the product.

So along our journey with this project, we have an inspiration and a fabric scheme (click the links to check them out), so here are two options that would work for the project.  Do you have a favorite?

Lloyd Flanders – Mandalay Collection, Restoration Hardware – La Jolla Collection, Dedon – Marrakesh Collection

Luxury For The Home believes that true luxury is not about ostentation or expense.  It is about simplicity. Sanctuary. Comfort.  It’s the beauty that happens when everything, including you, has its own ideal space.
