Oriflamme Gas Fire Pit Table Blue Pearl Granite

Whenever we launch a new product, there is always excitement in the air but when it’s a new granite fire pit from Oriflamme…well then we are very excited! These beautiful tables are one of our biggest sellers and it’s easy to see why. Not only are they beautiful, but they are extremely functionable. It’s the marriage of form and function in a package that makes an eye-catching statement in any space.

The Blue Pearl Granite gas fire pit table features a blue hued granite that represents a major departure from the browns/grays of our standard granite fire tables. With the Blue Pearl being one of the newest in the family of fire tables from Oriflamme, demand is expected to be high over the course of the next year. With Oriflamme’s reputation of delivering a high-quality fire table, great customer service, and in most cases quick shipping; 2015 is shaping up to be a great year for All Backyard Fun and our relationship with Designing Fire.

Christmas Ideas for Your Patio

Christmas Patio Gift Ideas Pt. 1

As we enter into the holidays and people are doing their Christmas shopping, we get phone calls and e-mails asking if there are gift ideas for the patio this Christmas. We love getting these calls, as our talented customer service and sales team knows our products very well and can recommend a number of products for a patio or deck. I asked them what are some of the more common ideas and what is one or two unique gift ideas. If you have suggestions, please add them in the comments. By no means is this an exhaustive list either, but rather a few suggestions from everyone here at All Backyard Fun.

1. Alfesca Fornetto Wood Fired Oven and Smoker

ALFRESCO-WOOD-OVEN-RED-cropped

What’s better than smoked meats? How about the ability to also bake pizzas? This Alfresca Fornetto Wood Fired Oven and Smokers is designed to warm quickly, so this outdoor oven reaches optimal baking temperature in minutes. Adjustable ventilation controls allow precision cooking. Ample shelving and a detachable smoker chip box expand the oven’s versatility, letting you smoke, roast, or bake everything from cookies to pizza, meats to pies.

2. Soundcast Outcast Jr. Wireless Outdoor Speaker

Soundcast Outcast Jr.

 

We’ve all been there, you’re outside and the sun is shining and you decide to have a party. Finding a speaker or system with great sound quality and rugged enough to be outside is hard, so the good folks at Soundcast engineered the Outcast Jr. speaker for all your outdoor music needs. This system is shipped without transmitter so that if you wish to use the UAT or later add a second OutCast Jr. for left and right channel configurations which the system is capable, of you can do so. There is an alternative system that includes the iCast transmitter.

3. Terraflame Georgian Lanterns 

Terraflame Georgian Lantern from All Backyard Fun

These beautiful lanterns by Terraflame are a popular outdoor accessory for any patio or deck. Accent the outdoor patio or even an indoor table or mantel area. The fluid lines topped by an architectural metal lid completes this amazing indoor outdoor lantern. These lanterns need Sunjel canisters for fuel, which is sold separately.

4. Hampton Marine Grade Polymer High Back Chair

windward-high-back-chair

 

The Hampton Marine Grade Polymer High Back Chair is made using prime HDPE, a durable material that will not rot, swell, blister, fade or chemically break down when exposed to humidity, water or sunlight. The material is 100% recyclable as well as environmentally friendly. MGP is easy to clean and is proudly made in the USA. Not to mention, this chair is very comfortable! There is a padded sling option, and I would definitely recommend that option as the padded fabric is much more comfortable than the standard sling fabric.

5. Polywood South Beach Adirondack Lounge Chair

AD

The South Beach Adirondack chair is the perfect recycled plastic Adirondack chair because not only is it stylish, it’s also designed to last for years of comfort! With 13 difference colors to choose from, you can relax in it knowing that you’ve matched it to complement your patio decor. A curved seat-back allows for a more ergonomic feel and additional comfort compared to other Adirondack chairs with straight seat-backs.

Venetian-Fire-Table

Oriflamme Venetian Marble Gas Fire Pit Table

As we enter the shoulder season of the patio furniture market, we are building programs and systems for next year so we can improve our customers’ experience and satisfaction. One area that we are always improving on is our selection of Oriflamme fire tables and the imagery associated with these beautiful tables, including the Oriflamme Venetian Marble Gas Fire Pit Table

It’s not very often we get to photograph a 42″ round Venetian Marble fire table because whenever we do get them in stock, they are usually sold very quickly!  So I jumped at the chance to photograph this table because I had never seen one in person, let alone photograph one! I love this beautiful tiled table that mimics the look of Venetian marble, and will provide all the warmth you could want for your backyard.

Here are some photos of the Oriflamme Venetian Marble Gas Fire Pit Table from a recent photo shoot. If you want to pre-order one of these beautiful tables, please visit the link below. You can also give us a call at: 800-451-2550  –  http://www.allbackyardfun.com/fire-pit-tables/oriflamme-fire-tables/oriflamme-gas-fire-pit-venetian/

Giallo-Santo

Oriflamme Optima Granite Fire Table

The weather is finally cooling down a little bit and we are getting into the fringes of the holiday season! This means we are also getting inventory delivered in anticipation and get a chance to shoot some product photos of products that are difficult to keep in stock during the busy months. One of those products is the Oriflamme Optima Granite Fire Table by Designing Fire; a beautiful Giallo Santo granite fire table that features a lighter color granite and speckled black and rose in the granite veins.

We finally got a product photo shoot with this gorgeous table and everything that comes with the fire table. The standard powder coat with the Optima Granite Fire Table is a black powder coat (although Copper Vein is available upon request) and we didn’t have these product photos in our library either. To give an idea about how popular this table is, after this photo shoot we delivered this table to a local customer who had just purchased that table! Right now is a great time to buy this table as well, with lead times getting down to about 2 weeks if you order now you’ll have it long before Thanksgiving!

sunbrella

How to Care for Your Sunbrella Fabric

Have you ever had patio furniture and constantly cleaning up ketchup from burger night? How about that time you were out of town and your cushions were outside during that big thunderstorm? Or even if you avoid the ketchup and the rain, but the sun’s UV rays fade those once vibrant cushions?

As a patio furniture retailer, we have heard of every complaint under the sun it seems and we get asked all the time, “what can I do to better care for my cushions?”. Most times this means putting the cushion covers through the wash and risk having them shrink or fade, and even still they may not look the same afterwards. It’s also unreasonable to keep the furniture covered all the time, because you bought the furniture to enjoy your patio, not just look at furniture covers. One solution that we recommend is making sure you have high-quality Sunbrella fabrics on your patio furniture.

Here are some helpful hints for maintaining your Sunbrella fabric:

  • Protect the area around your Sunbrella fabric when using a bleach solution – bleach may discolor non-Sunbrella fabrics. Always rinse Sunbrella thoroughly to completely remove bleach.
  • Please be aware of the environment when cleaning with bleach. Bleach can have harmful effects on the natural environment around you. We do not advise using bleach if you are surrounded by a body of water or other environment that could be affected.
  • Sunbrella fabric air-dries very quickly.
  • Machine drying is not necessary.
  • If fabric has some wrinkling, use an iron, if necessary, but only on the synthetic setting. As some irons exceed the recommended temperature on the synthetic setting, test a small inconspicuous area before ironing entire piece.

Sunbrella fabrics are very easy to care for and to maintain and to illustrate this, here is a video show you how easy it is.

Our Terrace Collection line of outdoor patio furniture comes with Sunbrella fabrics, as well as most of our furniture that we sell. We want to give you the best patio experience and that means we choose Sunbrella fabrics!
