Patio / June 26, 2018 /
Substantial, sturdy outdoor furniture sets the scene for front porch dining. Transitional styling, simple lines and natural teak, make this lovely dining set at home anywhere, including the primitive exterior of this cottage. It complements the tree trunk columns without exactly matching the woods of the cottages exterior. This adds additional visual interest and intensifies the rustic theme of the setting. With a porch long and wide enough for different furniture moments, here we have one side of the porch ideal for a breakfast, lunch, or dinner for six, and a casual seating area on the other side of the porch, perfect for mid-day lounging or after-dinner drinks.
This porch is filled with comfy wicker furniture in traditional green, recognizable by its deep forest, almost black, color. Durable, all weather materials, such as wicker type resin for the frames and outdoor fabric for the cushions keep the space low maintenance and perfect for all seasons. A few luxuries add comfort; plush, pretty pillows and throws can be quickly pulled inside when the weather turns bad. Iron base tables with honed marble tops are the perfect sidekicks because they combine simple lines with elegant materials. It is an ideal place to lounge and wait for a soft breeze.
