is outdoor furniture necessary?

The weather has been pretty bad lately. It's hot and humid and it's causing many people to fall sick. I always find it hard to figure out why do people want to spend so much on outdoor furniture here since the weather is terribly humid all year round. How comfortable can one in the porch when the sun is scorching? The interesting thing is, I have noticed many home with unused expensive outdoor furniture at the porch. Maybe it's just part of outdoor decorations, making the house 'more complete' visually to their neighbours and friends. Most of them end up as 'white elephants' in the long run and will eventually end up looking worn, washed and old.

I have often wondered about that myself. Several of my friends in Malaysia have metal furniture in their garden and they are too hot to sit even if we try to during the dayime. But they are great during the evenings provided you have a mosquito repellent on.

Outdoor furniture at our house is a way to expand our square footage. It makes us feel like our living space is much larger. We spend a majority of our time on our porch during the summer. But we don't have the humidity here it Utah.
