Interestingly – we have three very American examples for the outdoor room, and three extremely European examples for simply outdoors. Let’s find out what you like best.

As for me, here’s one side of my porch. While the white rocking chairs say “outdoors” like my European friends, the throw pillows in China Seas’ Java Java along with the garden stool say “outdoor room”. Clearly I can’t commit.
