Dishing out complements
June 15, 2006,
As the outdoor living category continues to grow and envelope traditionally "indoor" pieces — such as deep seating, coffee tables, lamps, rugs and wall decor — designers are quick to add pieces to complete a fully furnished outdoor living room. It's not so strange these days to find etageres, tea carts, more lighting options, privacy screens, coffee tables and more in the back yard to complement high-design furnishings.
