When it comes to outdoor seating, there are two schools of thought. Those who believe that the furniture should be set up for dining, and those who lean toward establishing a seating area like an outdoor living room.
If you fall into that second group, here’s an interesting idea from Shanty 2 Chic – modular furniture which can be set up into many different seating arrangements based on your preference and available space.
As for your wood choices – the frame can be made out of regular pressure treated lumber and the slats can be any weather-resistant wood. Cypress, cedar, teak, white oak, pallet wood. Top it with a few comfortable cushions, prop your feet up and enjoy some outdoor time!
