Outdoor accessories need to be durable but also stylish, and these options, in metal and concrete, are just that. Multipurpose items – such as the lamp stand which can also serve as a table or plant stand and the concrete side table which can also sub in as extra seating – make your space even more flexible. Serve up cocktails by the pitcher or the glass and increase your cocktail cred by using local ingredients such as bitters, tonics and more made right here in Calgary.
