I like the half booth, half chairs kitchen table they have here. It saves some space and allows for storage beneath the booth bench. Would be an excellent sewing area. Stow the machines under the bench. Add electrical socket under bench.
I have always wanted a porch swing. It's a comfortable place to curl up with a book, or a place to relax while still being outdoors. I can imagine myself on a cool summer night, watching the sun go down, just sitting on there on the swing.
