How would you like to relax on your sofa…in your garden?
Outdoor furniture doesn’t have to mean sitting on heavy, uncomfortable wrought-iron chairs. When buying outdoor furniture, people usually opt for harder, more ‘solid’ varieties. In the process, they sacrifice comfort for ‘durability’. After all, no one wants a moldy couch out on the deck, right?
However, it is possible to get comfort and durability. Blue Bay’s Patio Collection is a perfect example of how the two can be combined. The trick lies in the use of outdoor fabric. Blue Bay’s outdoor furniture is made with the highest quality fabric. It’s so durable that they even guarantee its longevity. It’s woven from solution-dyed acrylic fibres, so you know it’s tough, and that it’ll last for ages. Concerned about colour-fade? Not an issue, as the fabric’s colours are designed to stay bright – despite the elements.
Blue Bay’s outdoor fabric is treated with a coating, which not only repels water, but damaging UV rays too. It also prevents dreaded mildew formation. Messy entertaining isn’t a problem either, as the fabric is stain-resistant. If only the same could be said for your indoor sofa, which has to endure a multitude of sins! The outdoor furniture is easy to clean, and very low-maintenance. Just like it should be.
When thinking about what colour fabric to choose, bear in mind that it will be outside – so you can lose all inhibition. You can even have bright pink armchairs if you want. The rules of interior design are much less rigid when you’re in the garden. Being outdoors is all about relaxing and having fun. It’s also a good idea to select different kinds of material for your outdoor furniture, for example: wicker, cane, and even a bit of ceramic here and there. Don’t forget about cushions – nice, big comfy ones. Combining interesting prints with bright solid colours is key.
Blue Bay is based in Ballito, Kwa-Zulu Natal. They pride themselves on their high quality outdoor furniture – and the fact that all their products are manufactured locally. They ensure that the highest standards are met, both in their materials, and customer care.
There’s no need to get clunky, dead weight chairs for your patio. Throw in a brightly coloured couch or two, and enjoy reading, having a glass of wine, or just lounging outside. You may never want to come inside again!
