In the Midwest, we are forced into hibernation during our long and very cold winters, so when the ice starts melting, we are obsessed with spending as much time outdoors as we can. You will find people packed into small sidewalk patios and rooftop decks, everyone competing for the coveted outdoor seating.
There have been many occasions during the summer where we take our team meetings to the patio at one of our houses, we’ve found that sitting in the sunshine really does improve everyone’s mood and gets the creativity flowing (or maybe it’s the John Daly cocktails?…which deserves a blog post of its own at another time…)
The outdoor space should be treated as an extension of our indoor space, creating a cozy and relaxing environment. We did our research (and each member of our team had fun pinning hundreds of ideas!) so that we could share our favorites in one Outdoor Dining Roundup. From woven natural styles, to soft fabrics, to metallics, there is something for everyone on our list. We also included a range for budgets and some items that are on sale (so you can have extra $$ for your outdoor accessories, coming soon!)
