Wanting to create an outdoor space that reflected the livability and style of the interiors, designer Joe Minton covered a
collection of sofas, wing chairs, and benches with outdoor fabrics. The portières allow for summery poolside views when open
and help keep out winter’s chill when drawn, extending the seasonal use of the space. “Texas weather allows for lots of outdoor
living in the colder months,” says Minton, a Fort Worth native.
