Ray Allegrezza -- Casual Living, July 15, 2005
Accent pieces that are weather-friendly have made a mark in the casual industry over the past couple of years. Lately, storage pieces are the buzz as manufacturers fill in the gaps to what is missing in outdoor living. These pieces are constructed of a variety of materials and feature vintage style to contemporary design, but all can withstand outdoor elements while providing a complementary piece of furniture to complete the outdoor living area.
