AT-HOME HAVEN (CONTINUED) COMFORT & LUXURY In Southern California, there’s simply no better place to socialize than outside in your very own backyard haven. “Whether it’s alfresco dining, lounging around a fire table, or having that long-awaited get-together with friends and family, the right furniture pieces can make all the difference,” says Bryan Gold, marketing manager at Aldik Home, which is proud to only carry Summer Classics outdoor furniture. “It is impeccably made, durable and most importantly, as comfortable—or even more comfortable—than indoor furniture,” Gold emphasizes. “Summer Classics is the only luxury patio furniture that hits all the right notes.” Aldik Home is unlike any retail store you have ever visited, he says. “Filled to the brim with the most lifelike silk flowers and plants, Aldik Home

honey-golden color or in a pre-weathered finish called Oyster teak, a favorite amongst interior designers. “This Oyster teak is a maintenance-free, set-it-and-forget-it teak that gives you peace of mind and stunning sophistication,” Gold says. When creating your backyard paradise, keep comfort at the top of your mind, he further recommends. “If you purchase furniture that looks nice, but isn’t very comfortable to sit in, then you won’t be spending as much time outdoors as you had hoped,” Gold warns. “If, on the other hand, you choose furniture that is luxuriously comfortable, you will find any excuse to sit outside or invite friends and family over.” Comfort is key, which is another reason Summer Classics stands out. “All of Summer Classics’ collections, be they Teak, Aluminum or Resin Wicker, are amazingly comfortable,” Gold adds. “Aldik Home showcases more than 20 different collections of Summer Classics
