Outdoor Furniture - Impulse Buy

I was pursuing a futile search for outdoor furniture (too expensive, too bulky, wrong colors, etc) until I gave up and headed over to Decorno for a visit. Outdoor furniture was on her mind too and she mentioned Amazon - I had never thought of checking out their selection. Well I did - and I bought 2 of these.
Falkner 3 seat outdoor sofa - Amazon.com
The price was great - $299 marked down from $470. The design will go well with our current patio table chairs that have an X with a circle motif and I can add in color with blue pillows. The reviews were mostly good - with a few disappointments here and there. I identified with the reviewer who "decided that I would take a chance on this set and I couldn't be happier." I'll let you know how it turns out.

In keeping with the blue theme I"m going for, each year I've been slowly replacing all our pool side towels with these Land's End rugby stripe towels

MyPatioPlace.com has good prices and even better pricing if you buy in "sets" and believe it or not... the cushions actually come with the sets.

I love the one you bought. I hadn't noticed it when i was browsing Amazon, so I am very happy for your find and for letting me know about it. I am very tempted to get the same one...

I do love those outdoor couches. It's makes me hungry for summer. I've got a beautiful cottage rented this summer in Wellsfleet, Cape Cod. July can't arrive fast enough!

Michele- I know you posted this so long ago but I have to laugh because I totally (unknowingly!) copied you with the set I just found at Lucketts. ...a circle-x but so similar. and the sconces.. what next?
