NEWS YOU CAN USE

Sun Sentinel via BusinessMirror

And patio furniture no longer looks like patio furniture. So-called outdoor rooms are befitting from design that more closely mimics indoor looks, blurring the line between the two with deep-seating sectionals, full-on kitchens, larger dining sets and fire pits.
