Tuesday Tips

Beautiful Coastal outdoor space decorated with bright colors creating a tropical styleDo you have a beautiful outdoor space that you’re not fully taking advantage of/borderline abusing?

Do you have the space to create an outdoor space and still haven’t?

If you answered yes to either of these questions, shame on you! Thankfully, we know exactly how to fix that problem! But really, why not create the perfect coastal outdoor space?

If you’re struggling to create a dreamy outdoor space listen up. It’s as easy as this: create a space that is so comfortable you never want to leave. Seriously. We’re not joking. If you design an outdoor space to be as utterly and ridiculously comfortable as an outdoor space can possibly be, you will never want to leave. You will yearn for sunny days and drift into a state of longing for your comfortable spot outside. There’s really not much more to it, it’s quite simple. Employ outdoor furniture such as a day bed to help with this task or a large, cozy chair that demands relaxation and you will no longer spend days indoors.

:: Chairs 101: Marais A Chairs ::

Tuesday Tips

Nautical dining space and kitchen with hanging flags and marais chairsWe’ve all seen them, in fact, we’re certain a few of you even have these chairs in your home. Yes, we’re talking about the Marais A Chair or the Model A Chair or the Tolix Cafe Chair. This chair dates back to 1934 when metalworker Xavier Pauchard, the man responsible for bringing the process of steel galvanizing to France, created the first Model A Chair. Xavier originally created the chairs to be used in industrial settings such as factories or even on ships, but it was quickly adopted by French cafés. These chairs are made of metal and are known for their sturdy, reliable feel. This also allows them to hold up against the toughest outdoor weather or the wear and tear from constant indoor use. They’re perfect for a coastal home too! Match them with a rustic farm table or a sleek modern table and see how the Marais A Chair seamlessly blends with the decor. Get the perfect nautical feel by bringing these chairs into the dining space or take ’em to the backyard for long lasting seating space outside. Check out the pictures we’ve put in this post and see how designers have used them in each space. We’ve gathered a few different styles so you can get a feel for the chairs versatility.

Tuesday Tips

Modern coastal outdoor furniture When the sun is out there is a good chance you want to be outside. One very important part of enjoying being outside is having a comfortable place to sit and enjoy it. Cue the outdoor seating and furniture.

When looking for outdoor furniture you need to look at what kind of material it’s made out of. This furniture is going to spend the entirety of it’s life outside. It needs to be able to take on the elements. That means we’re talking metals, cedars and teak. Other woods work as well such as oaks and eucalyptus, but they aren’t as durable. We’re looking to get the most out of our outdoor furniture. We don’t want it to rot or fall apart after a couple seasons. That means shop for quality pieces. If it’s inexpensive and cheap there’s probably a reason for that. Save and invest in quality furniture for you and your family to enjoy when the sun is shining!
