Patio furniture is my favorite type of furniture because it is meant for relaxing with friends and enjoying life. In the past few years a growing trend of luxury furniture made for outdoors has emerged and companies like Gandia Blasco, B&B Italia, and Dedon have made quite a splash out by the pool. Here are some of the most impressive patio furniture designs from around the world in a variety of styles from super sleek to woven wicker all with one thing in common, they look extremely inviting. Have a great summer and enjoy your patio furniture!!
