Bing Crosby may have been dreaming about a white Christmas, but here in Australia you can’t go past casual summer Christmas celebrations in the sunshine. Whether you are celebrating with family or friends, being outdoors during this special time is one of the perks of living in the Southern Hemisphere.
If you are hosting an outdoor Christmas celebration this summer – whether it is the big day itself, or a casual pre-Christmas or Boxing Day gathering – you need to make sure your outdoor area is ready for plenty of guests.
No doubt you already have a great outdoor setting – perhaps it is a comfortable lounge-type setting or even a more traditional dining setting. But will you have enough seating for all the guests who will come knocking on your door?
When customers come to us looking for more outdoor seating, there are a couple of options they can choose from. If your primary concern is with numbers – you may want to look for a stackable chair that you can store easily in the winter months or when they are not needed. These should fit into a garage or a garden shed. Come in and ask the staff on the floor which chairs in stock are easiest to pack and store away. Favourites with customers have been the Newport Poly-Timber Outdoor Chairs as well as the Bondi Armless Chair.
If you are on the market for a new setting, keep in mind which styles have stackable chairs that you can purchase in addition to those that come with the setting. Then you know they will match!
Bench seating is also great for extra guests because benches can easily seat three to four people comfortably. Benches can also be handy as extra tables if needed. Unlike chairs, benches can be used all around the house and garden, whether you create a comfortable shady nook on your back yard, or even leave a bench on the front porch. This really is a very versatile piece of furniture.
Whatever extra pieces of furniture you may choose, you can rest assured that anything you buy from Outdoor Furniture SuperStore is of the highest quality and designed to withstand the harsh Australian Summer sun as well as those typical Melbourne days where it rains as well!
The easiest material to look after in terms of outdoor furniture is always aluminium – all of our aluminium outdoor furniture is rust-resistant and light-weight when you need to move it around. Wicker and poly-wicker furniture has many of the same benefits, if this is a look you prefer. It is certainly more popular for lounge-type chairs.
Timber is always a stylish choice, but poly-timber outdoor furniture is rapidly gaining popularity as it offers the look and style of timber, but at an affordable price. Made from recycled materials, you wont be disappointed with the finish nor the durability of these products.
