It's the first official weekend of summer, so it's time to get our patios, decks, pools, etc. ready for weekend relaxing. I've tossing out old, tired items and making a list of what needs to be replaced or repainted for our beach house porches. So here is what I need to furnish...
This deck is huge! I think we can have a table and chairs, seating area, possibly a second table and chairs beyond the seating area on this side alone.
This is the other side of the house. This is a smaller area which could have a couple of chairs and a table or a love seat or a couple of chaise lounges. It gets so hot on this deck during the day. The only way you could survive would be under an umbrella but later in the evening when the sun goes down, it's a great place to hang out.
The interior of our beach house isn't large so expanding the seating and dining to our deck will make an enormous difference for entertaining. I'm excited about the possibilities. Up until now the only furniture we have had out there has been Adirondack chairs and side tables. I'm ready to get serious about making these decks functional. Our kids have gotten to the age they want somewhere to hang out with friends, this could be the perfect solution to our space issue.
At High Point Market in April, I discovered Woodard Furniture. This industry veteran has been making quality outdoor furniture for over 140 years. Woodard offers a large variety of quality wrought iron, aluminum, and outdoor wicker furniture in traditional and contemporary style. Woodard's quality construction is unparalleled in the industry. Finding the right outdoor furniture for coastal properties can be difficult because it needs to be attractive, comfortable and be made to withstand the salt air.
It's easy find outdoor furniture that looks good, but the difference comes in the construction. Who wants to replace furniture every year? It's important to find furniture that will withstand the elements and last for awhile? Shipping is expensive so if you are paying to replace furniture each year your investment becomes paying for shipping, not owning quality furniture. I was so excited to find a line that offers both great styles and quality construction, now comes the hard part. What do I choose? Here are some of my favorite collections from Woodard Furniture.
I would love to have one of Woodard's Gelati Whimsical bistro tables and chairs in orange. How cute is this?
I also love the Parisienne Bistro table and chairs. This set reminds me of an old fashion ice cream shop. The romantic heart details are sure to win you over.
Sculptura offers iconic mid-century design in woven wire available in a multitude of colors. This collection is built to last.
I fell in love with the Spright Kid's set and asked them to "pretty please" make it in adult sizes. I have it from a good source that we can expect the adult version of Spright to appear at a future market.
The Baja Strap chair might be my favorite of all for the beach. These low-maintenance chairs deliver high style in a stacking chair which offers the option for convenient storage. This uber chic chair is equally as useful as a sand chair or on the deck or by the pool.
I love the chaise lounge in this collection too. It is also stackable and in stock.
If I had a couple of these umbrellas, I could create the perfect oasis on my deck. It is one of my favorite colors.
I sometimes prefer a chaise with arms, the Dominica is an excellent option if you do as well.
Woodard offers so many options such as table and chairs for dining. I love the details on the back of these chairs from the
Wouldn't this collection look fab at a mountain house?
Another classic dining option is the Ramsgate, which offers numerous finishes and fabrics with a broad range of pieces that can be customized for your home.
Woodard also offers stylish and comfortable seating collections.
Their collections consist of loveseats, sofas, swivels, chaise lounge chairs, and ottomans.
Dining collections include tables, chairs, bar stools, and umbrella tables in many styles and finish options.
I love this 36" x 36" square table for its versatile use. It's great to get a couple of these for your patio. If you have, a large group over you can push them together to create a larger table to gather around.
I think I'm leaning towards the Baja strap collection with aqua umbrellas? Now to figure out which dining and seating collection to add to my wish list. What's your favorite?
