Think Patio.com and pool and youre envisioning loungers and laps, right? Well, youre partially correct, but Patio.com has branched out and now not only is one of the largest outdoor-furniture retailers in the country, but is also one of the leading authorized Brunswick Billiards dealers, too. While the company does bang-up online business and even has a dot-com name, Patio.coms origins predate the Internet era. (The company, now owned by three brothers raised in Westport, Connecticut, was founded by David Ross 26 years ago.) In addition to its online market, the company has 13 bricks-and-mortar stores, where shoppers find patio favorites including tables, chairs, and benches from top manufacturers.
