{the prettiest patio furniture}

As the days quickly pass and June swiftly approaches, I find myself day dreaming about spending more time outdoors. Unfortunately it's nothing but rain here in Vancouver, but I've got a good feeling June with bring with it the lovely long summer evenings I am craving.



How fabulous would it be to pull up a lovely white tufted & skirted ottoman like the one below to that charming outdoor stone fireplace? 


If your reading this carefully, by now you are thinking ... Did she just say white. tufted. skirted. outside??? Is she crazy?

No, you read correctly! This is the PERFECT piece of outdoor furniture: a cast stone tufted ottoman that was designed to be outside, and the tufting and skirting details are amazingly life-like! {Coleen & Company, $575}.





Quite literally the most fantastic piece of outdoor furniture I've ever seen ... I want one! Doesn't it get you dreaming of summer?

I am tired of rain! I excitedly pulled out my patio furniture last week, but the rain came back! The weather is so uninspiring!

Those stools are genius! I'm meeting with my landscape designer for the first time next week and getting so excited about all the possibilities.

what a neat way to have tufted ottomans outside! let me know when homesense gets their (affordable) version....;)

p.s. love the charming wrought iron gate, it's great to have pieces outside that will stand the test of time...and our Vancouver weather!

Incredible! Upon first glance, the ottoman(s) had 'me' fooled. :) -Brenda mrsben-

I would never have guessed those were stone! I guess you wouldn't even need patio furniture covers for those either. Wow, thanks for sharing!
