“We’re providing a totally different experience”, says Heikke Nielsen. “Our staff takes a very consultative approach.” Their goal is to create “the perfect outdoor area for the customer” and to achieve what he calls “a boutique-like buying experience” his sales staff engages with customers, determining what their goals for their outdoor area are.

Up next is the selection process, including fabric, materials, sizing, overall color scheme and the possible inclusion of a propane or natural gas fire table.  “Right now is the perfect time to buy”, Nielsen says, explaining that it’s still early enough to “enjoy your furniture for a whole season”.

This traditional style offers a higher seat plate making it easier to get in and out of.  In addition, the Palm adirondack provides a curved back for amazing comfort that other straight back adirondacks can not provide. This outdoor chair is made of a recycled plastic that is both very durable and UV protected to maintain the beautiful color.

Uptown Collection Wicker Swivel Rocker Chair only available through All Backyard Fun

Introducing the Uptown Chair Collection

One of the most challenging aspects of the retail patio furniture business is evaluating product from vendors to match the needs of your customers. We know our customers very well and as we grow into new ventures, we have been designing and manufacturing our own lines of furniture. In 2014, we launched the Terrace Collection line of premium patio furniture at an affordable price and this year we continue that with the launch of the Uptown Chair Collection.

The Uptown Chair Collection is aimed toward customers who have patio or deck areas that are more limited in space and want a chair that has a lower profile, but still maintains superior comfort. We have achieved that in the Uptown Chair Collection, each chair provides the comfort and support you’d find in a larger chair but with a much lower profile. Each chair is constructed with a durable aluminum frame then a high-quality polyresin wicker is wrapped and weaved around the frame to create the chair. The Uptown Chair Collection also features a Sunbrella cushion that will provide great comfort as well as the all-weather protection that Sunbrella has been known for!

With the premium materials and superior comfort, you’d expect to pay upwards of $500. We have this chair for the introductory price of $199 per chair! This chair also ships by UPS as well!

These chairs are available through our website, which can be found here. Click the link to go to our store and order your Uptown Chair Collection chairs today!

The Wickers Get an Ice Bucket

March 18th, 2015

Now that the Wickers knew that they had a gas fire table that was portable, they wanted to learn more about some of the accessories that came with the Oriflamme Fire Table. Sara from All Backyard Fun began to list of some of the accessories that were included, and some that were extra.

With every Oriflamme Fire Table you receive a propane tank, protective lid, and fire glass. There are a few accessories that I recommend that are not included, but are awesome features to the table. The all-weather cover comes in either brown, or black, fits to size and drapes down to the ground. This is a nice feature to have as a storage cover when you want to store it for the winter or off-season. The cost on this is $99.

The other accessory that is more fun than practical is the interchangeable ice bucket insert. So on the days that it is hot and you need to use the functional aspect of your table, you put the ice bucket into the table and fill up the bucket with you cold beverages! That option is also $99.

Katie and Thomas talked about the two accessories and agreed that they definitely would need both. We both love to entertain, and we also live in a climate where it matters to protect our outdoor furniture.

Tune in next week to hear more about the Wickers’ All Backyard Fun adventure and their quest to have the perfect patio.

The Wickers and their Oriflamme Fire Table

March 11th, 2015

As Sara addressed Thomas and Katie’s questions about the assembly and weight of the Oriflamme Fire Table, Katie was becoming very excited about her new purchase. She then wondered how portable it was. So she soon asked the question to Sara from All Backyard Fun, “How portable is the Oriflamme Fire Table”?

Great question, responded Sara. Sara explained to Katie that because of the table’s weight, and the fact the all the components are interchangeable, it was very easy to move around and it can easily be put in the back of a SUV or truck to bring camping, tailgating, or move to a new home.

Outstanding Katie exclaimed. We have an RV that we take camping in the summer time and this Oriflamme Fire Table would be a perfect addition to those late nights out by the water.

Sara agreed and she also mentioned that many of her customers move it across their deck or patio, and even bring the Oriflamme Fire Table to the front during Halloween and pass out candy. Tune in next week to hear more about the Wickers’ All Backyard Fun adventure and their quest to have the perfect patio.

The Wickers Voice Their Concerns

After Katie picked the burner and fire glass to go with her brand new Oriflamme Fire Table from All Backyard Fun, Thomas jumped on the phone to ask a few questions of All Backyard Fun Sales rep Sarah.

“Is this safe to put on a wood deck?” Absolutely Sarah remarked, it is designed just like a gas grill with all the heat going above the unit.

We are thinking about putting in a pergola, is it ok to put this table underneath a pergola? Sure is, you need about 60” of clearance from the table top to the surface of the material above, so about 5 feet high, you will be just fine with that new pergola.

That sounds great Thomas said, so we will be able to put this Oriflamme Fire Table on the new deck with the pergola, outstanding!

Thomas also had some very important questions about assembly of the table and how heavy it weighed. Sara explained to Thomas then there is no assembly required as all of the units are manufactured right her in the USA, with American workers! Thomas was thrilled to hear that, not many products are made in the USA anymore exclaimed Thomas.

What about the weight asked Thomas? Sarah told Thomas that the total weight was about 150lbs, and the heaviest piece being the granite, two people would need to move that into place.

The Wicker’s Customize Their Fire Pit

February 25th, 2015

 “Keeping up with the Wickers”, an All Backyard Fun Adventure

Katie was thrilled that the Oriflamme Fire Table she chose was the most popular model that All Backyard Fun sells, the Tropical Elegance in the 42” Round. Sarah from All Backyard Fun explained to Katie the custom process of choosing her new fire table was not over, and she needed to choose her burner and fire glass for her table.

Sarah went through the list of burners available, which are the Sun, Flower, Martini Glass, Yin Yang, Star, Maple Leaf, and Fleur di Lis, and the most popular, the Elegance burner. Katie asked about the Elegance burner, “what sort of flame pattern is that”? asked Katie. Sarah told Katie that this was a pattern that would give you a rustic fire pattern look, flames all over the burner and in a random pattern.

Katie said she would go with that model. Although she loved the idea of having that Martini Glass at her next party on her new outdoor patio, she thought the practical choice would be the Elegance burner. After Katie decided on the Elegance burner, it was time to pick the fire glass colors. Sarah showed Katie 24 different colors to choose from, black gold, copper, red, and blue and so on. There were even fire glass with reflective and non-reflective features.

Katie was floored that she could match colors of her patio, house and more. She wanted to really make this table pop with the other colors she already had going on in these areas. Katie had her mind set on the Copper, Gold Reflective, Black Reflective, and little bit of Azuria Reflective, all of which would match the colors of her house and patio perfectly. Great choices exclaimed Sarah, they will really go well with the Tropical Elegance.

The Wickers and the Oriflamme Fire Table

February 11th , 2015

 “Keeping up with the Wickers”, an All Backyard Fun Adventure

 Last week when we left the Wicker house, Katie and Thomas were in the process of hearing the key features of the Oriflamme Fire Table from the sales representative Sara from All Backyard Fun. After hearing the key features, Katie asked about roasting marshmallows, something her son Johnny was so excited to do. Absolutely exclaimed Sara, we encourage this! Katie then asked, how do I clean the pretty fire glass that is in the center of the burner? Sara explained that the glass is very easy to clean in either a colander or 5 gallon pail, it washes off easily.

As Katie and Thomas continued to learn more about the Oriflamme Fire Table, Thomas grabbed the phone to ask a specific question that he wanted to know, is my beer going to get warm when it sits on the table? Sara, from All Backyard Fun, explained to Thomas not to worry as there is no transfer of heat to the table, so the beer will remain cool and the table safe for any pets and kids. Thomas was relieved.

By this point all the kids were huddled around Thomas and Katie listening intently to their conversation with Sara from All Backyard Fun, getting very excited about what their parents might buy for their patio. McKenzie (6), and Tommy (10) all had visions of how fun it would be to sit around a fire at night on their patio.

Katie jerked the phone back from Thomas and asked Sara to describe more about the custom options that the Oriflamme Fire Table has. Sara outlined to Katie that she can personalize her table with the size and material of the table top, fire glass, powder coating, as well as additional accessories. Katie was most interested in the granite table and wanted to learn more about that.

BLUE PEARL

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.
