Furniture should be an integral part of a whole design or at least part of the planning process. While designing any site we ask lots of lifestyle questions. What kinds of activities would you like to do outside: read, rest, write? Do you have kids or pets that require open areas? What are your dining and entertainment habits? Close family, small gatherings and large crowds all require different types of furniture for a successful event. Patios, nooks, open fields all have improved use when there is seating available. Places of discovery where a guest might like a brief pause require only a bench in contrast to a reading area which may require a lounge chair. Style, color, comfort and ease of mobility should all be considered when making decisions about site furniture.
