Help us furnish our indoor-outdoor space!

My partner and I are considering an apartment that has a private patio that's as large as a room. We'll be furnishing the new place mostly from scratch and would love to get living room furniture and dining set that work equally well on the patio or indoors so we can switch things up a lot. Can you help us find the perfect stuff?

We already have and will be keeping leaning ladder-type black shelves a small black leather couch. We had been hoping to get a sofa large enough for a guest to sleep on but I've never seen an outdoor sofa that you would be able to sleep on.
For dining, there are 2 of us but ideally would have table and chairs for 4.
We're in our early 30s and want grown up furniture, probably not ikea. We've been casually browsing West Elm, Crate and Barrel, CB2, overstock.com.
To give you a sense of our taste, her furniture is black-painted wood and black leather. She's got great style and can be particular in ways I can't always predict. My taste leans towards natural wood, mid-century inspired design, and white, cream and various neutrals upholstery or leather. I enjoy apartmenttherapy.com. We know the will be a lot of compromising and we're excited to set up house together!
