Even though this article is 8 years old, the trend has proven true. More and more, there is an effort to seamlessly blend the transition from indoor to outdoor living. Modern interior design considers the flow of the architecture, natural environment and functional aspects of inside rooms, patios, decks and in between rooms. High end furniture that has the durability to survive the elements, without sacrificing style, provides great flexibility for home or commercial property owners. A number of luxury brands, such as Sifas, Brown Jordan, Mamagreen and Gloster are great examples of patio furniture that can weather the elements and create an elegant entertainment setting.

Love the idea of outdoor spaces and would definitely love if it's complete with an outdoor tv or any kind of entertainment to watch movies or play games with.
