FROM THE EXPERT
I OFTEN TALK ABOUT how to place a sofa and a couple of armchairs to ensure that the living room is not just about the TV, but also about creating a space that you can easily engage with your family and guests and actually talk to each other. Well, the rules are exactly the same when it comes to our outside entertaining spaces. A well-placed outdoor sofa and some comfy armchairs make the perfect space to relax or entertain.
It’s about creating a ‘destination’ that will draw you outside and make you feel like spending time there.
