What Type of Furniture is Best For Your Climate

What Type of Outdoor Patio Furniture is Best for Your Climate?

As we enter the fall season, a common concern for homeowners is outdoor patio furniture that can sustains in various year round climates.

In Front Range Colorado, high winds coming off the mountains is common for local homeowners. But in the U.S. and overseas, All Backyard Fun often has customers asking questions like, “I live in a pretty windy area, is this chair going to blow away?” or “I live on the east coast and the summers are brutally humid, how will this material hold up in such a climate?” It’s true, different types of outdoor furniture will hold up in certain climates better than others. Here’s the best type of furniture to buy based on your climate.

HOT AND HUMID?

If you live in a hot and humid area, a great option to go with is cast aluminum patio furniture. This type of material is rust proof which won’t let the humidity take a toll, leaving you with years and years of use. In addition, cast aluminum furniture is best known for its elaborate and intricate styles, so you can have a quite an eloquent design. One of our favorite cast aluminum products is the Sonata High Back Dining Chair from Windward. The Sonata features a sophisticated rolled arm design, and has extra padding for extreme comfort!

WHERE THE WIND BLOWS?

If you live in a windy area, and you’re worried about your patio furniture blowing away, fear not! A good option for windy city dwellers is wrought iron furniture. This material is the heaviest type of patio furniture, so your wrought iron club chair will still be on your patio after the harsh spring summer, and winter storms. Wrought Iron makes for a very heavy and sturdy type of furniture, creating a durable and strong piece of furniture. The only caveat when choosing wrought iron furniture is you may need two people to move around the furniture. It’s heavy, which is why it won’t blow away in a serious storm. If you’re looking for a club chair to stand up against a storm while maintain a classy look take a look at the Venetia Club Chair by Paragon Casual. Its durable, has a beautiful design, and the deep seating allows for great relaxation!

CHILLING BY THE POOL?

Don’t think we forgot about you pool lovers! If you like to relax pool side, a great furniture option is sling aluminum. With sling aluminum, you get all the comfort and cushion of a normal fabric, but the sling aluminum dry’s much faster. When you get out of the pool and sit on a sling aluminum piece of furniture, you won’t have to worry about waiting hours for it to dry. It’s rust proof too! One of our popular items in this category is the Marine Grade Polymer High Back Swivel Rocker. It is padded for some serious comfort after swimming laps in the pool.

CLASSIC WICKER

If none of these options fit your needs, there is always the choice to go with a wood or wicker furniture set. Wicker and wood are appealing for its warm and timeless styles. What’s great about wood or wicker, is it will hold up nicely in any and all climates.  Wicker is always a classic choice that offers a beautiful modern look when it comes to outdoor furniture.

Though, if you’re in very dry areas like Arizona, wood furniture will require a bit more maintenance. Wood is very well known for its’ longevity and durability – just look at your grandma’s picnic table she’s probably had around since you were a baby! One of our favorite wicker collections is the Terrace Curved Sectional. It’s a fun, affordable design that differs from your basic L-sectional set.

The Wicker’s Customize Their Fire Pit

 “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.

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

It was a crisp spring evening in the Midwest when Thomas and Katie Wicker put the kids to bed early for a Friday evening of relaxation and conversation when they walked out onto their patio. They quickly realized it was too cold for them to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful night. Both became frustrated and upset that they could not enjoy the evening together outside on their patio.

Without a heat source on their patio to keep them warm, their evening soon turned stale. Katie mentioned to Thomas that she had found an outdoor patio furniture website called All Backyard Fun, and a solution to extending their seasons and enjoying their patio year round with an outdoor gas fire table.

Katie explained to Thomas that the Oriflamme Fire Table, as it was called, ran on a self-contained 20 lb. propane tank and sat at standard coffee table height which intrigued Thomas. Thomas was excited to hear the 19” height of the table was going to provide them with more heat than anything else he had previously seen, because this was lower to the ground. Katie also mentioned that the Oriflamme Fire Table can put off 65,000 BTU’s of heat and last for 10-16 hours on one propane tank. This delighted Thomas, as he loves to spend hours outside with Katie and bringing his family and friends together.

After about an hour of discussion, Thomas and Katie agreed that this was going to be their next purchase for their outdoor space, and it was to be the Oriflamme Fire Table from All Backyard Fun.

Simply remove the cushions, remove the aluminum frame, and stuff the bench cushion into place within the frame of the couch. This space saving option is one of our favorite features, not only for protection of the cushions but also storage during the winter.

All Backyard Fun at the Boulder Creek Festival

What a busy month May was! In a matter of weeks, we hosted a launch party with the Boulder Chamber of Commerce and we displayed a booth at the Boulder Creek Festival which sees more than 35,000 people visit over the course of three days! Whew!

Each year on Memorial Day weekend the city of Boulder hosts one of the best and most well known 10K races in the United States, the BolderBoulder as well as hosts a festival along the banks of the Boulder Creek. The aptly named Boulder Creek Festival runs Saturday-Monday and is an important event for the community of Boulder and its downtown neighborhood. The event features live music, a craft-beer garden, food courts, many many booths featuring everything from artisan woodworking, and clothing to crossfit and outdoor furniture.

This was our first year having a booth at the Boulder Creek Festival and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce ourselves to the greater Boulder community with such a fun event. We saw heavy foot traffic all three days of the festival and got to chat with numerous people about Oriflamme fire tables and our lines of patio furniture. The weather was beautiful but stormy which worked in our favor as people were taking refuge from the rain and wind inside our tent. We even had one of the fire tables running for people to warm up next to!

We had so much fun introducing ourselves to Boulder and chatting with curious festival goers about our products, why we moved the business from Minnesota to Colorado, where we are located in Boulder, and the always popular “can I touch the glass?”.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year at the Boulder Creek Festival!

More Than Just Your Average Space; Designing Tips and Tricks

 

Simply incorporating seating and a table with a covering or accessory can create a basic outdoor space. If you are looking for more than just a standard, basic, simple space you should make a list to make sure that you are getting all of the touches to the space that you want. The first area to think of is the ground cover and material used. If your outdoor space has a basic concrete area, think of creative ways to make the space feel more like an indoor space. One way is to incorporate an outdoor rug into the setting to give it a warmer, cozier feel. Another way to add color into the space is by staining the concrete. Choosing a pattern, such as a large diamond pattern, will give the space color as well as adding a motif and room like quality to your outdoor space. Next, think of the ceiling or covering that is going to be above the outdoor area. Shop for outdoor, rustic pieces that give the space some flair. Chandeliers and other fancier lighting give a formal feel to what was a boring, basic space. After addressing the space above, think about creating faux walls by hanging outdoor curtains that can easily open and close, giving flexibility to the space. Hang outdoor fixtures and wall pieces to the side of your home or outdoor walls to create a memorable scene. Last, but not least, choose comfortable furniture that is easy to clean and made from durable fabrics. Nowadays, furniture for an outdoor space can look almost exactly like your favorite couch that’s inside your living room. Make sure to shop around for the best prices and always find something that works for both you and your guests. In the end, you will have an amazing outdoor space that you can enjoy for years to come.
