An outdoor seating area at Muriel Brandolini's family retreat in the Hamptons

Lovely poolside scene w/ RH seating...

This covered porch has a huge table that seats 14. On the other end is a seating area and fireplace

We have benches built into two sides of our deck, but a sofa would be sooooo much better. I'm thinking along one side and the house wall with a table in the bend. Yep. Dreaming here. - lbw
