    There is some great modern outdoor out there, some of which are multi-function pieces which can keep your costs down–you buy one piece that you can use in the place of two. See my blog for more:

    Thanks for sharing the information. Love all of your wonderful photos. I practically live outdoors, so here are a few thoughts you need to think about. Wood deteriorates and falls apart with time. You'll want to treat it yearly, which is no fun. And you must treat every nook and cranny on each piece, because moisture will find a way in. Resin will stain and have to be bleached to clean, but it is [reasonable. It can be kind of uncomfortable. The right patio furniture is wrought iron. And if you get a quality set. It's worth the investment. I'm a long time reader and first time commenter!
