Deck with a View

If you have a great view from your deck, you have an automatic focal point. Great! Enjoy your view with a stylish bar set instead of ordinary table and chairs. Most bars and bar chairs are at least 36 inches high which will allow you to dine and enjoy your picturesque viewwith ease without straining your neck.
