Italian inspired, Old-world style outdoor accessories invoke the past - and that can make your more recently-built house seem more like home. Lanterns, bistro sets, wall art, iron benches, statues, candles, potted plants, decorative trees - even faux floral arrangements - will all add style and class to your patio or garden. Candlelit lanterns are a perfect way to create a romantic ambience that is easy on the electric bill and generous with flickering casts of light. Turn your backyard into a serene getaway in minutes. Put your worries to rest regarding lit candles, kids and pets by using battery-charged lights instead. available at Bella Venezia 254-2246

Classic Comfort, Rain or Shine
Santa Clarita's most popular deep-seating outdoor furniture set is made by Hanamint, a company known for its innovative craftsmanship. Customize your set with a wide array of cushions; there's a design available for every taste. The common element, however, is an important one. Each are made with Sunbrella acrylic fabric, which means that they can be left out - uncovered - in the blazing sun, freezing rain, or anything in between. Plus, the cast aluminum base won't rust. Pair your perfect set with coordinating firepits and chaise lounges - and enjoy your backyard! available at Oasis Garden & Patio 255-9909

Grill Masters, Start your Engines
The X-Series is the first outdoor kitchen designed by Porsche Design Studio and engineered by Porsche Engineering Group GmbH. This smooth ride features four Crossray laterally-mounted infrared burners, an integrated concealed rotisserie with rechargeable battery pack, a techno-savvy LCD display and counter-balanced hood. Just like its four-wheeled counterpart, the X-Series looks as good as it performs. It's available as a matte black grill (pictured above) or stainless steel island. Accessorize yours with a couple of fine-quality filets and a great bottle of wine (Get rid of the "Kiss the Cook" apron.). available at Barbeques Galore 284-6880
