It’s time to start searching the 2023 trends and things you should consider when choosing your outdoor Patio Furniture, Fire Tables, Umbrellas and Décor.
One of the first thing you will notice in 2023 is the increased number of Rope Collections thanks to their durability and universally appealing designs. The rope design was first introduced because of its nautical design and charm, but over the past few years it has transformed into a stylish and comfortable option crafted to keep you relaxing or entertaining for hours on end.
The type of rope used in constructing these pieces is made from Polyolefin and Polypropylene properties, why does that matter? Those properties produce a product that is extremely strong and can withstand all types of extreme weather conditions, it is abrasion, and stain resistant for astounding longevity, offers close to zero moisture regain so perfect for any outdoor application, and has good wicking characteristic for a comfortable feel, so whether you live on the coast or the prairies, there is nothing more appealing than a worry-free outdoor living space that will last for decades. Yes, that is double digit longevity think of it as beauty and the beast!

Chapter One -all materials are not equal, and this could not be truer in outdoor furniture, and we all have been there and bought the t-shirt!
Woven Furniture has transitioned from the traditional Flatweave, to Chic Thickweave, Sophisticated Round weave, and now trending is the intricate Braided weave but don’t be fooled by its beauty, it is essential to look for a woven material that is made from Resin (fiberglass) because resins will expand and contract in increment weather so you will never see the fading, peeling,
The second biggest disappointment we want to forget is soggy, mildew, un-washable cushions, so look for cushions made from reticulate foam (made from the same material as a pool noodle) this material is extremely water repellant and will keep its shape longer than a standard foam cushion, next cover it up with an acrylic fabric like Sunbrella or Outdura and you will not only be sitting pretty, you will have fade and water-resistant protection for years!
