Given the unusual and unique location of the balcony with a 180 degree view of the Southern California coastline from the foothills to the ocean , my wife and I are searching for furnishings for the newly rebuilt balcony that will enhance our experience and capture the breathless view. I have included photographs and a rough sketch with the dimensions.
We intend to use the balcony mostly to watch evening sunsets when we may have a glass of wine as we as the changing landscape develops. From time to time we would like to invite friends and relatives (no more than 2 or 4 at a time) to share the experience.
We intend to use the balcony to sunbathe during the summer months but require a small area of shade..
After dark, I would also like to use the balcony as a place to set up my telescope to view the night skies.
The Project then is to design a furniture arrangement that accommodates all three activities without a crowded and cluttered look. We do have an electric outlet on the wall of the house facing the balcony.
