Outdoor furniture once meant woven plastic folding chairs with hollow aluminum frames. Or wooden picnic tables. Or white stackable resin chairs.
These days, the trend is to extend a home’s living space outside with furniture fit for Cleopatra – or Hollywood’s elite. It’s the resort-spa-luxury look on the deck, patio or pool.
Richard Frinier talks about it in a column posted on the High Point International Home Furnishings Market Web site, www.highpoint market.org. He writes of what he calls “Resort-at-Home” trends, “bringing the essence of world travel to our own backyards.”
Whether it’s a double chaise with canopy from Restoration Hardware’s Antibes collection or a Plantation Siesta and Canopy sofa from Gloster, the new furniture is designed to make you forget about folding furniture and plastic Adirondack chairs stacked high at supermarkets. Read more »

Before you decide to run to the store and buy new patio furniture, check your budget – and your design style.
Manufacturers are strutting out bold pieces that can do double duty indoor or out. Sectional sofas are taking center stage in collections. Overstuffed cushions, custom fabrics, tassels and trims are now becoming the norm alongside chairs that look like they belong in the family room and tables carved from glamorous granite slabs and manufactured synthetic stones.
The new “outdoor room” has taken on a new meaning with homeowners – it’s an extension of their home. Read more »

Forget formal living rooms. Outdoor living rooms are what’s hot.
Decks are being replaced by large roof-covered patios partially walled by fireplaces or columns and sometimes accented with roof-to-floor curtains, creating living spaces with indoor privacy and outdoor openness.
These spaces are usually furnished with sofas, chairs and tables that are virtually indistinguishable from indoor decor. Yesterday’s plastic-webbing lounge chairs are long gone, replaced by overstuffed cushions, fringed throw pillows and ottomans that seat four or more.
“Customers are coming in who haven’t bought outdoor furniture in 10 years, and they can’t believe what we have now,” says Keely Anderson, co-owner of Inside-Out Home Furnishings in Brentwood, where “estate-sized” outdoor furnishings are in demand. “The fabric today looks fabulous, feels fabulous and is completely weather-resistant. We even have a group covered with an outdoor leather. . . There are just so many different choices for everybody.” Read more »

Furniture shoppers can score big-time if the Chicago Cubs or Boston Red Sox win the World Series.
A home goods retailer in each of those markets is offering to refund the price of season-opening purchases if the hometown team takes the 2007 championship.
Libertyville, Ill.-based Park Avenue Home Furnishings says it’ll give a full refund for all goods bought March 30 through April 29 if the Cubs go all the way.
If the Sox cinch it, Jordan’s Furniture, which has stores in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, will refund the price of any mattress, dining table, sofa or bed bought March 7 through April 16.
“I can see a man actually saying, ‘Hey, honey, let’s go furniture shopping,’ ” says Park Avenue owner â€” and lifelong Cubs fan â€” Gary O’Reilly. Read more »
