prepping the balcony for summer 2011

I am going to ignore the fact that there was snow on the ground yesterday morning. La la la la la. It didn’t happen.

It’s time to start planning for summer 2011!  Our condo balcony has space for exactly two medium size chairs and one side table -small but just enough room to sit out on a warm summer night to watch the sunset and have a glass of wine.  I’ve been scouring the internet for an affordable but stylish set available in Canada (sigh, the selection is so much better in the US), but I came up empty-handed because all ‘sets’ are very traditional and usually pretty ugly.  So instead, I did some picking and choosing from a few different sources and came up with three options.

There is a fairly big price difference between these sets but before you look at the prices, what do you think?

Option 1: $647.00 CAD

(1) Outdoor rug by Martha Stewart available at Home Depot, $119 CAD, (2) Garden stool available at Target, $169.99 USD (this will require a trip over to Buffalo), (3) Mojito rocker by CB2, $179 CAD (we don’t have a store yet but CB2 now ships to Canada!)

Option 2: $349.95 CAD

(1) Outdoor casbah rug by CB2, $ 99.95 CAD, (2) Nordano armchair by IKEA, $85.00 CAD, (3) Stool/table by Tikki Offi available at Modern Karibou, $79.99 CAD

Option 3: $758.00 CAD

(1) Linear outdoor rug available at Costco, $79.99 CAD, (2) Sawyer chair by CB2, $299.99 CAD, (3) Stool/table by Tikki Offi available at Modern Karibou, $79.99 CAD

Which would you choose?
