Choosing chairs for your garden, a couple of things to include. A chair back tall enough to lean the head back to rest or fall asleep. And, arms.
Lovely chairs, below, but after-dinner-conversation will flow longer, enrich & be funnier, sitting in the chairs, above. Wine will taste better too.
Table/chairs, top pic, large enough, perhaps conversation splits into 2 groups, and a pair of chairs are pulled away and closer to each other.
When clients have a party I always have the same request, Please take pics of your furniture afterward. I learn most, and adore learning daily, from gardens living/leveraging lives.
Cote de Texas recently wrote about John Saladino, here, and his various homes thru the years. A rich article. Almost a design course. And, where both pictures were found.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
