Some areas are lucky to have limited seasons and some are unlucky to experience extreme ones. In tropical climate areas, indoor and outdoor lifestyle is much more versatile, hence much more affordable.
In terms of decorations and style, using indoor and outdoor furniture doesn't need to be different as the weather permits the home owners to do this. But those living in extreme areas do not enjoy this... until now.
According to Southernliving.com, the trend before for outdoor furniture was all about plastic.
“Not long ago, Army green plastic chairs were about all that was available to furnish your patio or screened porch. Luckily, times have changed, and the fabric industry has made remarkable improvements. These days, your outdoor sofa can be covered in a material that’s just as soft and stunning as the fabric on your dining room windows or your living room chairs. The choice of colors, patterns, and textures has never been better.” the article states.
The trend before was not only ugly, but it was also a hazard! Luckily, those home owners of today can experience a bloom of the outdoor furniture inside and out. The technology developed nowadays have allowed the indoor furniture to be used outdoors that can withstand any weather, pets and even unruly children.
