Welcome Home: Reviving the Front Porch, From the Wraparound to the Stoop

Appreciation for the front porch, the home's connection to the community, is back. Whether your home has a small stoop or a Victorian wraparound, here's how to make it warm and welcoming.

Adirondack chairs are incredibly versatile and good for a compact arrangement; their flat arms provide space for an open book and a beverage. Look for cedar chairs, which weather naturally and last many years, even when exposed to the elements. Or check out ECORondack chairs and ottomans, made of 100 percent recycled ­plastic and available from ECOlogic, www.ecoloft.com, (800) 899-8004.
