In our area, the outside is just as important as the inside of a home. With the ever-increasing popularity of outdoor living spaces, more and more designers are creating luxurious outdoor furnishings for the most exclusive homes. The top designs can cost as much as any fine interior furniture. But luxury homeowners don’t mind the price tag because these “Out Couture” furnishings are not only beautiful, they are also designed to last. These high-style pieces are also sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of many holiday guests. This year’s outdoor furnishings are made from the latest materials, like U.V., mildew and stretch resistant fabrics, all-weather wicker, powder finished aluminum and oven-tempered teak. There is a wide range of architectural styles available in stores, but you may have to work directly with a designer to find the most unique pieces.
