Designer Peter Danko utilizes subtle contours to maximize comfortable lounging. Made with non-toxic water based adhesives.”

Round Leather Ottoman

Silver isn’t your most common choice for a footrest, or for any other upholstered piece of furniture for that matter, and maybe that’s why it’s so appealing. If you’re not into the silver, it’s also available in chocolate.

“Sleek, chic leather is upholstered over a dense foam cylinder. Indispensable as a side table, footrest, nightstand or extra seat.”

24″diam x 13″h.

Terrazzo Square Table and Stools

I know it’s not exactly outdoor weather for most people, but who says you can’t get ready early? This set would look equally good inside as well…

“This black terrazzo table is a classic addition to any patio or deck. Measuring 32″ square, you can easily match it to Napa’s square terrazzo stools (sold separately) or with your choice of teak or metal outdoor chair. Constructed from concrete with terrazzo accents, these innovative items may be left outside in Virginia winters (unlike terracotta, which is guaranteed to crack). Whether you prefer the look outdoors or in, this table is an undeniable classic.”

Table (32w x 32d x 30h), $559.00

Stool (12.5w x 12.5d x 18h), $125.00

I’ve always loved shelter arm sofas, they are so comforting and comfortable, and at this price, I don’t think you could go wrong.
