Outdoor dining furniture 101

Dining al fresco is an activity often associated with vacation in a foreign city. However, an international plane ticket shouldn’t be a prerequisite for relishing the simple yet luxurious pleasure of eating outdoors. With the right dining table and chairs, your suburban backyard or apartment balcony can easily fit the bill as an al fresco dining spot. In fact, when furnished with well-designed pieces, your outdoor space will be (almost) as transportive as a faraway locale – but thankfully one you can enjoy daily.
