One of the biggest perks of living in Florida is that our subtropical climate allows us to enjoy the outdoors during January and February. Creating a cozy outdoor setting, well equipped with comfortable furniture and some amenities is one of the best ways to enjoy the perks of our warm weather.
When it comes to outdoor furniture select full scale, comfortable pieces. These will serve you well whether you’re working with a tiny space, or a larger backyard/patio setup. Look for cushions with inner and outer material that is waterproof and weather resistant.
Polyethylene is a great material for outdoor furniture; it’s strong, weather resistant and easy to clean. Kartell carries several options that stylistically work for both indoors and outdoors, but carry the benefit of being durable enough to withstand the elements. One of our favorites is the Bubble Club Chair. It’s built in a classic shape, but its variety of color options make it a piece that’s playful and original.
If you’re trying to decide what items you’d like to incorporate into your backyard, consider what elements you enjoy having indoors, and bring them outside with you. If you love piling your friends into the living room onto a big cozy sectional, you can recreate this outside with the Connexion Outdoor Collection.
When we talk about backyard amenities, one of the first items that comes to mind is the Equinox Fireplace. Its fire will keep you outside longer on chillier nights, and it’s ample tabletop space means it also doubles as a coffee table. Made from cement, stone and metal, it has a natural and sleek look that pairs nicely with many types of backyard furniture.
