We recently sold our old patio furniture (white all weather wicker). We'd had it for many years and were simply looking for a change. We also wanted pieces that would be a bit more functional.
We picked up our dining table, chairs and bench at Ikea. They are part of the Falster Series. We purchased ours while it was an Ikea Family and Friends special, and got a great deal.
We hunted high and low for a sofa/loveseat/chair set. Patio furniture is so expensive! I refused to pay more for my outdoor sofa than my indoor one. I adore my hometown girl Amanda, Dixie Delights, and if you have not seen her back porch I encourage you to click on over!! She was kind enough to point me to Target to look for a sofa and chairs. SCORE! We found the perfect loveseat (fit the space better) and matching club chairs. And we were able to get them for a great price during their Memorial Day sale. They are part of the Belvedere Collection.
My hubby had his eye on a Mosaic Tile Topped table at West Elm (a bit pricey), but when we actually saw it and the quality of piece in person, we passed on it. We opted for a $49 table from Ikea, the VITTSJO coffee table.
The bones are in place, and now on to the fun part...ACCESSORIZING. We also have plans to build a console table/bar. Hubby really wants to make it out of teak with a zinc top...we shall see.
