Outdoor living

I was browsing through the latest edition of Traditional Home magazine and came across an advertisement that caught my attention. The title of the ad was 'Let it Rain'.......a little bragging on behalf of Lane Venture. This gorgeous sofa is built to withstand the outdoor elements.

Is this not a beautiful sofa for a garden or lanai..................

So I popped on to their web site and discovered the extensive {clearly an understatement} outdoor furniture collections. This particular sofa, which is now added to my outdoor living space dream list...... is from the WM Outdoor Upholstery Collection. The 'WM' I discovered stands for WeatherMaster. I lost count on how many fabric choices there are, but it was over 150 teasers in solids and patterns to make you feel like a kid in a candy store.

Great place to snooze and read a book. WM outdoor lounger would look fabulous in any one of the solid shades or print patterns.

A traditional style chair & ottoman would compliment the WM sofa above.

I like the unique style and detail on this love seat.

And then I discovered that these beauties are sold at Hauser in Ontario, only a 15 minute drive from our house. Check the website for locations in the United States and Canada - www.laneventure.com

The stylish Spinnaker Sofa - a variety of chairs styles to match are also available.

What a great conversation area to have for outdoor entertaining.

This chair is a great addition to any one of the soft WM Upholstered sofa's.

Add solar lamps to the patio and you have created a complete outdoor living space.

Although all of these pieces can stand up to the weather test, I say
'bring on the sunshine'.
