It’s that time of year, my friends. The breezes are warmer, the sun is setting later, and all you want to do is be outdoors. The best thing about living in the country is all of the great outdoor space! My kids spend their entire summer vacation roaming around our homestead, having the time of their lives. When I considered the amount of time we spend outside, I decided it was time to invest in some fantastic outdoor furniture for that space.
I wanted to create some different zones around the patio. I think a dining space is a must-have. We love cookouts and “picnics” in the yard. My daughter loves to bring her crayons and paper outside, too, so a table would be perfect. I also wanted to create a large lounge area where I can sit and drink my coffee, read a book, and keep an eye on the children. This is especially nice when we have guests because there is a seat for everyone. Last, for a bit more fun, I looked into a fire pit with seating so we could enjoy our evenings outdoors just as much as our daytimes.

CORSICA DINING SET
Corsica Outdoor 5-Piece Dining Set
dining set is just perfect for our home. The large tabletop is great for family cookouts, dinner parties, and of course, the all-important art sessions. The chairs are finished with all-weather woven wicker which is not only stylish but durable — just what one needs in the great outdoors. I especially love the gorgeous pedestal base on the table! Have you ever seen an outdoor table so elegant? It makes the piece look grounded and grand, giving my outdoor dining space the style lift it deserves. I love all of the

MILANO LIVING SET
Milano 5-Piece Outdoor Sectional Set
A sectional for the outdoors? I never would have thought of it. Thankfully,
had my back.
is great for gathering with family and friends. There is so much seating! Usually, I feel cramped on outdoor furniture but not with this. The woven rattan is durable, made to last for years, and I love the weather-resistant fabric on the cushions because then it’s OK if a spring rain pops up unexpectedly. I have room to stretch out, put my feet up, and relax. I like that I can sit comfortably for hours while my kids run and play. We even pulled the pieces together into a makeshift bed one night and watched movies as a family. Family memories like these make me love this furniture even more.

MONTEREY CHAT SET
Monterey 2-Piece Wood Burning Fire Pit
Compared to the other two sets I picked out,
may seem small, but I’m telling you, it truly makes the space. Who doesn’t enjoy roasting marshmallows over a fire? Wouldn’t you just love to do that in your very own backyard? The best thing about this wood-burning fire pit is that it comes with a beautifully detailed, flat iron lid so the fire pit can be used as a coffee table when we aren’t using it for smores. I just think that is the most genius thing I’ve ever heard! This set also features the all-weather cushions I love and a durable cast-aluminum frame. I love evenings under the stars with my friends gathered around a warm fire.
