Our patio/balcony is sized for Ewoks. To be fair, they're the Endor national basketball team, so they're pretty big, as Ewoks go. But you get my drift; it's a tiny space. In turn, American patio furniture is sized for Wookies, and their massive suburban backyards. Ok, perhaps I've carried this metaphor as far as it can go.
The short version: nothing fit, so we had to build it! Bigger pictures and more explanation in design.
