I live in an apartment in NYC. I do not have a patio. But I know many folks that do, including my mom and dad and friends (yes, even here in NYC, some apartments have outdoor space). Grilling out, letting the kids run around outside while sipping some java...all cool. What can make that patio even cooler? These accessories will bump that patio's status from cool to awesome.
No Muss, No Fuss Lighting -- These little tea lights add some chic mood lighting for those after hour chats. The great thing about them: they are "smart" candles. All flicker, no wax, no hazards. Safe for everyone, including the kids.
The Only Outdoor Chair You Need -- Check this one out. Yes, you need a tree, so it doesn't technically go on the patio, but still, it is fabulous. Like a chair cocoon for you to curl up in and read and hopefully doze in the afternoon sun.
Think Beyond Wind Chimes -- I have given this as a gift and they loved it. These brass temple bells not only create an amazing, chill sound when blown by the wind, they are a good focal point and add weight to the area.
Eat Without Unwanted Guests -- How many times has that fly had more of your hamburger than you in the summertime? No more! This netting goes over the top of your table umbrella and provides an unassuming, see-through shield as you dine or sit outside (yes, it has a slit through which you get in and out).
What is the best thing you got for your patio? What do you want to get?
