My summer patio transformation was set out to create a personal oasis by bringing the indoors, outside. The first item I purchased from Article was the Sora Sofa because it set the tone for the remainder of my furniture selection. I always recommend choosing your largest pieces of furniture first and to go a little bit bigger than you think, this is because you often underestimate how big a space is. As opposed to contrasting my patio set-up, I decided to opt for a tonal look and feel. What this means is that I played off the dark grey on my walls by adding a light grey couch. The end result of this tonal vibe gave the patio a very calm, relaxing and soothing feel.
