The funny thing about living in the south is that swimming pools are never drained, it rarely snows and suddenly you're faced with the realization that there just won't be what one would consider "winter" weather.
It's March and I'm keenly aware that we desperately need patio furniture. Dining furniture. The catch? As much as I love bronze cast aluminum like this gorgeous Antibes collection from Restoration Hardware it has one glaring flaw: that metal will be unbearably hot to touch come summer. When it hits 114 outside and the Texas sun shows up to cast its glow upon my house... you might as well have a branding iron in your had. Hot. Like. Fire.
And yet... I love this set. I want it. I adore it. It looks remarkably like the collection from Century that I adore... but the price point on this set is much sweeter (always the selling point for the Mr. in my life).
Fellow southerners... ar you rocking teak or wicker rather than cast aluminum?
