Weather-Friendly Furnishings

No matter where you live, your outdoor space is going to succumb to harsh weather conditions year round, whether it's rain, direct sunlight or even snow. For HGTV Dream Home 2012's outdoor living room, designer Linda Woodrum furnished the space with a trio of sturdy, solid aluminum loveseats with cushions made of stain-, mold- and mildew-resistant fabric. To break up the neutral palette, Linda used blue-and-white quilted pillows, the same fabric selection from inside the home's great room. They add a touch of color and designer appeal but can easily be brought inside if the weather takes a turn.
