One of the big trends to come out of Maison & Objet in Paris this winter was the extension of living space to include the outdoors. Based on a recent study, “the garden is now the second most important room in the house, after the living room and before the kitchen.”
We have to agree given that we spend most of our weekends from Memorial Day to Labor Day (and most often into the fall) tending to our flower beds and entertaining on our terrace. And after a day’s work planting, pruning and weeding, there is nothing so relaxing as a glass of chilled white wine sitting under the old linden tree on our garden bench. May you enjoy the fruits of your labor sitting pretty on one of these!
