Outdoor Living

The warm season is upon us.  Being outside yesterday watching my boys entertain themselves with a bucket of water, I was left to think about all the changes I want to make in my yard... and there are many. So I decided to write a list of what needs to be changed.  I thought about two important elements that are missing in our outdoor living space... outdoor furniture and an outdoor rug to define the space. 

I’ve been hoping to introduce another sitting space outdoors and ideally incorporate some comfortable lounge furniture (like above).  Our favorite upholstery line, LEE Industries, introduced their fully upholstered outdoor furniture line last spring.  They thought of everything when designing this collection… UV, stain, fade, water and mildew resistant, sloping seat decks for draining, breather cushions, waterproof ticking, open seat webbing, the list goes on and on.  If you haven’t seen this yet take 5 minutes and watch this video on how well LEE Uncovered handles itself completely emerged in a lake. 

We’ve carried LEE pieces for years.  A family owned company that prides itself on constructing well-made furniture and taking care of the environment, has been in business since 1969.  In fact, our clients who had purchased LEE products 20 years ago are still happy with their LEE pieces today.


Another family owned company that we’ve been selling for years and years is Capel Rugs.

Remember these...

These rugs were our staple for years.

Now Capel has gone Outdoor...

Virtually maintenance-free, Capel outdoor rugs offer soft comfort and weather resistance for porches or patios or high-traffic durability for kitchens and entryways.  Loomed by hand, not by machine, our flat woven and hand loomed rug collections are crafted with low pile for maximum comfort and durability.  Available in an array of solid colors and casual designs and environmentally-friendly they are constructed from 100% olefin or seagrass.  And even more... these rugs feature weather-resistant fabric.  They can also be bordered in your own custom fabric.

A 3 step process makes decision making easy (which is what I depend on).  So now I can start on making my backyard comfortable for me and my kids... just need to dig up a few pipes first.
