RISMEDIA, June 3, 2010—The continuing trend of fusing indoor and outdoor spaces reflects the consumer’s holistic approach to home. Here are a few ideas from Lowe’s to help your customers create a great al fresco experience:
Setting the Scene
Create a space that welcomes guests—day and night—with these four key elements:
1. Gazebo: This sleek structure (#69396) provides a contemporary aesthetic, while the rust-free aluminum frame and water-repellent canopy make it durable enough for year-round use. Here, the gazebo is set over a deck surrounded by pavers and pea gravel.
2. Dining Set: The clean lines of the dining table (allen + roth, Colby, table, #195350; chairs, #194648) continue the modern feel of the space. The set features a rust-free aluminum frame with a natural, wood-grain look and durable cushion fabrics.
3. Patio Set: A small table and a pair of comfortable chairs are all you need for sipping a summer drink and catching up with an old friend. This wicker bistro set (allen + roth, Highcroft, #12438) features natural-colored cushions and tropical-patterned pillows.
4. Chandelier in the Gazebo: Cast a soft, intimate glow on the dining table with a candlelit chandelier (#63854).
