Outdoor furniture comes in a wide range of styles, sizes and materials. From formal outdoor furniture made of metal or wrought iron, to wicker tables and chairs to hammocks that sway to and fro, there is no shortage to the options available. When you are considering entertaining outdoors, think about how your furniture is arranged on the patio. By grouping certain pieces together you can create a few different zones that will encourage conversations and fun.
Large Conversation Zone
One of the most important zones or areas on the patio is the large group conversation area. It usually consists of two or more multi-seat pieces of furniture. On a patio, that could mean a pair of two-person gliders or love seats facing one another. A comfortable chair at either end of the love seats would also be a great addition. Include a small, narrow table in the center, or a footrest that doubles as extra seating. The goal is to create a space where multiple people can gather, share conversation and enjoy the company of a large group. Depending on your entertaining style, this might be the largest zone on your patio.
