With summer just around the corner, spending time outdoors is going to be high on many people’s lists. And if you have a designated outdoor area, with the right outdoor furniture, your time spent outdoors will be a lot more enjoyable. 

Today, outdoor furniture has become just as popular as indoor furniture, given the rise of the outdoor room. The desire for homeowners to turn their outdoor spaces into ‘rooms’ and in turn, furnish them accordingly, has turned the spotlight on outdoor furniture and manufacturers are going all out to get your attention. 

Although outdoor furniture is very similar to the furniture we use to decorate the inside of our homes, outdoor furniture must be durable and sturdy enough to withstand the Australian climate. If it isn’t, it will fade in colour, lose its appeal and not perform as it should. 

With such prerequisites, you might be thinking you’ll have to compromise on style, but you’d be mistaken. Today, there is an array of outdoor furniture that is practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing – too good to be true? Well, it is true and we have a whole list of companies that specialise in outdoor furniture, both for residential settings as well as commercial projects. 

Whether you need deck chairs to go by the pool, or an outdoor setting for your entertainment area, or maybe you’re after a cosy lounge or recliner where you can sit back and enjoy the Aussie summer, there is an outdoor furniture piece to suit your requirements. 

And if you want to continue the theme of your home outside – be it contemporary, traditional or a bit quirky, that’s not a problem either. Outdoor furniture today comes in every single style, design, colour and texture so all needs are catered for. 

With such a diverse offering, why wouldn’t you create a designated outdoor area where you and your family and friends can get together and enjoy the great Aussie summer? 

Know of an interesting outdoor furniture manufacturer that is thinking outside the square? We’d love to hear about it.
