The sun is shining, birds are chirping and you know what you want to do next. Patio season stretches ahead like a beautiful summer evening. But before you can relax with a book, a friend or a cocktail, you’ll need a place to sit.
“When outdoor furniture suits the size of your space, your personal aesthetic and your lifestyle needs, it does more than just furnish the space. It expands your living area, and inspires you to live differently,” says Love Dodd from Dodd’s Furniture and Mattress.
Are you an entertainer? An introvert? A parent with young children? Start setting the scene for the summer you want by fixing up your patio with the right furniture for the job.
Pick your summer pleasure, then find the patio furniture to go with it
- Books, breakfast in the sun, and bevvies with a friend: When decorated strategically, even small spaces like an apartment balcony or garden suite patio can transform into an exciting escape. Start your morning with a croissant and cappuccino at your bistro set, spend a sunny afternoon curled up in a resin wicker armchair reading a book, then cap off the day with a quiet conversation with a close friend.
- Family meals alfresco: With young kids, restaurant dining can be stressful. So why not grab take-out and eat it around your backyard dining table? You’ll feel like you’re experiencing something new, and the kids can always grab snacks from the kitchen if they don’t like what’s on the menu. “Not all outdoor dining tables are the same, and some need more protection from the elements than others. If you know you won’t have time to fuss with a table cover, look for materials designed to withstand rain, UV rays, rust and other conditions,” Dodd says.
- Bustling backyard oasis: It wasn’t that long ago that we spent the summer in quarantine, only allowed to socialize with people in our bubble. If you’re eager to be the life of the party, ready to host last-minute gatherings with a long guest list, you’ll need a durable, upscale outdoor sofa set to fit all your friends. Summer, here you come.
