What’s Trending in Patio Furniture? Comfort!

May 5, 2023

Creating an outdoor space that you’ll actually want to use comes down to one major factor. Comfort! Outdoor spaces have been evolving into extensions of our interiors and we want comfortable furniture to help us enjoy every minute outdoors. Outdoor kitchens and living rooms have gained popularity in the last 10 years and outdoor furniture manufacturers have stepped up to provide long lasting, comfortable and relaxing furniture that also withstands the outdoor elements.

Cushioned outdoor furniture, or "deep seating" as manufacturers refer, are a top requested item. Many of our USA made cushioned patio furniture pieces are made with high density foam with a top layer of soft polyester to provide an extremely soft sit that also keeps its shape over many years of sitting. The cushions are then wrapped in a waterproof, fitted fabric case to prevent water from penetrating the cushion. The outter covering is made from your choice of outdoor fabric made of solution dyed acrylic, which is the best in the biz for cleaning, durability, and fading. Brands such as Sunbrella or Outdura make top of the line Solution Dyed Acrylic Outdoor fabric.

Deep seating is not always "deep". With a wide variety of seat depths and designs there will always be something that fits your perfect comfort level and style.
