Summertime is upon us, a time when we plan time with family and friends. In this we consider preparing our homes for our guests. Of course we want our homes to show who we are and what we love, this can start with placing an artistic piece of furniture in just the right spot. In this pursuit I find the most unique patio furniture in Rogers Gardens Gallery. The creative director Eric Cortina travels the world for inspiration. The furnishings bring unique design elements for our homes, as well as one of a kind pieces. Some of the wonderful pieces I found were  part of the “Global Import Collection”

 There are a variety of beautiful, colorful wood painted pieces that can be used in so many ways. They can be used as a focal point in a room, or as a cabinet in dining area, as well as a TV stand and component storage. These pieces are a fun addition to any room, as well as useful as a desk, nightstands and coffee tables.


If you want a little modern touch, this round table that is traditional in style yet covered with reflective mirrors brings a fresh combination to a room


Being summertime the rustic beach cottage feel is a fun theme. You can accomplish that feel in a room by adding this antique rustic looking little cabinet as a focal point and your favorite beach items inside.


Everybody can always use a new chair that provides a comfy place for the guests to relax in comfort and catch up on life. These chairs call at you to do just that. They are made with slip covers for easy maintenance, and have a classy look and colors that would blend in any home. Pillow may be added of any theme, again creating your own style.


This chair has a timeless element to it. Fresh light color and traditional patten allows itto be used in any décor style. It is elegant and yet comfortable with the natural weave on the seating, and again you can add any color theme.


An iron bench can be a fun addition in any area.. It invites you to curl up on it with a book and take a break whether in a main room, dining, or garden room, continuing that light and airy feel for summer.


 Our rooms can always use a touch of stone, metals, irons, and woods as an accent piece or as an end table.  It gives dimension as well as interest when they are unique. Here are four options, one is traditional yet clean with stone and iron, one is modern with wood, shiny metal legs, and one simple silver tree trunk, as well as this one of a kind teak wood table for a fun.


Again, as you consider your family and friends coming this summer, you may still need additional seating for a small area, these garden stools are fun as well as bringing a pop of color in your entertainment areas.


 By exploring all these possibilities, you will find what brings you joy as well as expressing your own decor style for your family and friends.
