Making Stone or Concrete Patio Cozy. Against a backdrop of beautiful stone, but rough, it comes into its own patio furniture. An idea by Paola Lenti, the furniture is soft and welcoming, instantly transforming the cold, hard environment into an oasis of relaxation. Contrast serves to emphasize the convenience of patio furniture daybeds, a large wicker chair, and even full-size sofa all scattered with plump cushions for you to sink into. The color selected here has very different effects.
