Spring Forward

St. Tropez Collection from South Sea Rattan

For most of the country, Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday (March 11). While we lose an hour of sleep, we gain more sun time to spend in our backyards and patios. With spring at the doorstep, now is the perfect time to add a new look that will be enjoyed throughout the rest of the spring and summer. Outdoor furniture manufacturers have introduced exciting new designs that are guaranteed to be strong sellers this season. Here are just a couple.

The St. Tropez Collection is one of South Sea Rattan’s largest collections and consists of every item to complete the ideal outdoor room. The collection features Powder-coated aluminum frames with their new Extra Wide Polyethylene synthetic wicker in an Espresso finish. It consists of a sofa, loveseat, hair, swivel glider, ottoman, curved loveseats, sectional, occasional tables, and two different sizes of outdoor dining tables.

URComfort™ System from Tropitone

The adjustable URComfort System from Tropitone allows you to find the most comfortable position without getting out of the seat. There is an adjustable tension knob on each side of the seat that allows you to restrict or encourage movement. Whether you want less movement sitting at a table or more movement with your feet on an ottoman, the URComfort System can be easily adjusted to your satisfaction. URComfort designs include cushions, traditional single-layer slings, double-layer Duplex slings, and elegant new padded slings.

Social Seating

Patio furniture doesn’t have to consist of just standard seating and dining collections. For those homeowners who want to create a fun, playful, or elegant mood in their backyards, bar stools are the perfect addition. If you incorporate an outdoor island or bar (and patio heater and lights), you can keep the party going all night long.
