The comfort inside interior room in home design is very different with comfort on outdoor decoration, as well as the shape and material that will be selected for a furniture. The furniture shape and type on outdoor tends to focus on the material, environmental condition and home design also becomes consideration in choosing furniture that will be used.
We can not put a sofa or furniture with fabric material or something that is easy to absorb the water alongside a pool. Plastic material and waterproof material are suitable for furniture concept that placed alongside the pool.
To put a sofa that made of material that easy to absorb water like fabric on the furniture alongside the pool, you can give a touch on the furniture or sofa with a material that can protect from the damage. Certainly the furniture concept with material that easier to absorb water requires energy and ineffective cost. My advice is use a sofa or furniture that are durable on outdoor condition. You can choose the unique and minimalist shape, type, or complex, but the design can be last longer, than we choose a good furniture but not durable on outside the home.
