Functional seating for your deck or patio

Here are a few questions to get you started. Keep the big picture of your ideal spot in nature while you consider these details :

  • Do you want seating for quiet reflection?
  • Think of how many people you usually entertain and what type of entertaining you enjoy doing.
  • What are your storage needs and where will you store your furniture if you need to get it out of the elements?

Take into account your current lifestyle as well as the activities you dream of doing in your yard. Jot down your functional needs in a notebook and keep this handy while you’re shopping.
