This tropical outdoor seating area features a built-in bench, a rough hewn coffee table and cozy armchairs with matching footrests. The covered patio creates the perfect spot for casual conversation with family and friends.
If your outdoor space has integrated bench seating, maximize its use with a collection of bistro tables and mismatched seating surrounding it. The same versatile elements used throughout the area were incorporated here to tie the spaces together visually.
The ocean serves as the backdrop for this outdoor seating area, setting the tone for peace and serenity. A large stone fireplace provides not only a charming focal point but also a source of warmth on cool nights.
Tree stumps serve as woodsy and rustic side tables, the perfect size for cocktails. Draw inspiration from this outdoor seating area by Chicago interior designer Tom Stringer, who injects a classic, multi-layered modern approach into his work.
Adding one large plant can really warm up your patio or deck and help anchor an otherwise empty corner. Taller plants just have a way of helping delineate a space and make it feel more like an outdoor living room.
