If you are a bird lover like me and want to attract your feathered friends to your backyard in style, then you need to read about this slik looking Eva Solo Bird Table after the jump.
Time to go outside since it is summertime. Outdoor furniture has been gaining importance over the years. The garden becomes an extension of the house. Design plays an important role in this evolution. Design is a true vocation for Alias
, the brand of the chair we will talk about today.
With only a few more months to go it is time to start thinking about being outside until late at night. Mood plays an important role in that. Fire seems perfect for that, hence the trend of those outdoor fireplaces.
Even when it is still Winter outside it doesn't hurt to look a little bit ahead to what Summer could offer us. Summertime means spending a lot of time outdoors. Hopefully in the nicest possible way. One item that I wouldn't mind having in my garden right after the jump.

Today I'll take a look at the architecture and interior of the Belgian pavilion at Expo 2010 Shanghai that runs from 1 May through 31 October 2010. The event in Shanghai will host over 200 countries that participate with their own building.
