This one is from Canadian Tire and most represents what I envisioned when I started thinking about this. But, it is at the higher end of my budget. However, unlike the Ikea versions, it is actually made for outdoor use...
Lastly, this option is what I would choose if I had a bit more money. It's pretty sharp looking! Another Canadian Tire piece, the grey is lovely, but I dunno if it would work with the browns outside. Also, probably too fancy anyhow!
For cushions, I have yet to see one that screams out "I'm the one!" to me, but these are all pretty:
From Pier 1, the perfect simple, blue cushion!
For something a little softer, there's this lovely green and white paisley floral option:
Canadian Tire also has this preppy stripe that reverses to a kicky floral! Might be a bit much, but hey, I'm looking to add some life to the step, so I'll definitely be taking a peek!
Wish me luck this weekend!
