Are you feeling a little cooped up? Once spring has sprung, we all think about spending more time getting fresh air. Today’s world of digital devices and constant work also finds us yearning for a natural landscape. However, this doesn’t mean that furniture is out the window. Here’s how you can enjoy your garden more often with the best outdoor furniture.
The Chaise Longue
A lot of people get to work in their gardens – mowing, fertilizing, weeding. Still, relaxation is the ultimate for many, whether you’ve knocked off for the day, or frankly, had intentions of doing nothing.
All you need to make this Saturday a mini vacation is some sun, a good book, and a chaise longue. Ideal for midday naps, the chaise is taken up a level when you add cushions in durable fibers, as well as a drink holder.
One of the most enchanting aspects of warmer weather is that everything is suddenly in bloom. Year after year, it seems impossible that everything could be so fresh and lovely. If you spend a lot of time tending the flower beds, add a bench, so you remember to stop and smell the roses.
Benches are among the most versatile pieces we can put outdoors, and most are incredibly durable. A molded concrete or rustic stone bench won’t look out of place in your garden, while a classic carved wood bench can be sealed against the weather and enjoyed for generations to come.
One thing you’ll notice about the outdoor furniture sets available today is that they look good enough to be indoors. With more than just metal and plastic, and wicker styles that definitely stand up better than those popular decades ago, the outdoor sofa is ideal for family time.
Adorn yours with stain-resistant cushions and enjoy days by the pool, evening cocktails, and more in complete comfort.
The Dining Table
Why not dine al fresco all spring and summer long? It’s possible with a dining set built to withstand the elements. Begin planning your garden party now, and snag the set that seats as many people as you like.
With so many styles available, you get to choose whether you want your patio service to complement the finer things in life, or to be a casual foundation for family barbecues.
Too much fun in the sun? Stay cool with an umbrella that built to block UV rays. Working outside on a hot day doesn’t mean you can only find respite inside; just bring your iced tea into the shade.
Choose the pattern you like, and never get burned again. Fight the major signs of aging, prevent skin cancer, and take a break at the same time.
Maybe it’s been years since you’ve thought about updating your outdoor furniture. If you’re dreaming of bright days and balmy nights in more agreeable weather, the time to upgrade is now. With comfort, durability, and style in focus, you’ll never want to go inside.
