The Patio is a' Changin! The continued evolution of the Outdoor Space in today's market means that home owners and designers are no longer content with the traditional outdoor furniture of yore. You know, flimsy plastic numbers that fade and crack. Instead, they're turning to décor details more often found inside the house, turning to designers who are, at once, producing highly functional pieces of furniture that make use of those style details found indoors - Cabriole legs, carved detailing, wing-backs, and even Mid-Century Eames-esque components - constructing them from materials designed to withstand the elements of the Great Outdoors.
Being that it's Spring and all, Corinne Gail Interior Design has scoured the interwebs in search of our favorite Inside-Outdoor examples, perfect for adding to your lanai, patio, or verandah.
