Design Dilemma: Stylish and/or Eco-Friendly Outdoor Furniture

It’s the time of year when the party moves outdoors. As the weather heats up and the days grow longer, it’s natural to want to spend as much time outside as possible — relaxing, playing, entertaining. And that means, it’s time to head out to the patio, veranda, balcony or porch. But what should we put in those outdoor spaces?

Here are a few ideas:
