Upgrade Your Patio With Help From These Coral Gables Stores

Part of what makes Coral Gables such a lovely place to live is the weather. We’re accustomed to a schedule that’s quite the opposite from the rest of the country, where the patio and outdoor furniture sales wean in the late summer and early fall months when it’s time to go inside and hibernate for the winter. For those of us who are spoiled year-round by sunny South Florida we know that outdoor living is best enjoyed between the fall and winter months.

As we look forward to the cooler months, it’s the perfect time for those of us around here to think about sprucing up our spaces – the best outdoor living and entertaining months are yet to come!
