Soak Up Summer with our Favourites

To get the most out of your deck, you need to give it a comfortable and inviting layout. Here are our favourite items for transforming your patio into a blissful oasis.

 

FURNITURE: THE KEY TO COMFORT

Since your furniture is the centrepiece of your outdoor space, it is important to choose pieces that are comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and weather-resistant (good quality products do not need to be protected from the rain). Naturally, it needs to harmonize with the decor inside your home and meet your space and relaxation needs.

As a general rule, a deck should have a dining area and a lounging nook with complementary styles for a pleasing visual effect.

Our seven-piece patio set (072-5978) and our four-piece sectional set are sure to make your evenings more enjoyable. Their polywood and aluminum structure offers sturdiness and durability. The sectional’s cushions are made of Olefin, a stain-resistant synthetic fibre, and equipped with a zipper for easy cleaning when needed.

If your space is limited, opt for a bistro set like our treated acacia model. Its chairs are foldable for easy storage when desired.

Instead of an armchair or sectional, choose a three-seat swing like the one we offer, which converts into two lounge chairs or a daybed. You won’t find better!

To protect yourself from the sun, consider a tilting patio umbrella. This way, you can enjoy your patio without the risk of heat stoke.

There you have it! You’re ready to soak up summer.

SCANDINAVIAN STYLE

Scandinavian decor is, once again, all the rage this year, loved for its generous use of wood, light or pastel colours, black, white, and anthracite, and for its designer pieces, often inspired by the ’50s.

For a deck with a Scandinavian flair, you’ll need chic furniture, such as our retro Nice patio set (072-4818), which includes a round aluminum table with built-in polywood benches. To complement your outdoor dining table, our three-position acacia loveseat is an absolute must (072-4359). It can be converted into a daybed for positively serene siestas.

Add a few strings of suspended lighting and a treated acacia Adirondack chair (072-4386) to your retro ensemble to create a chalet-chic ambiance.

As for accessories, stay true to the Scandinavian style with blue, black, or white cushions and dishes.

To add a touch of sophistication, shade sails hung over the lounging nook are a must.

FIRE’S BURNING, FIRE’S BURNING; DRAW NEARER, DRAW NEARER…

Who doesn’t love sitting next to a campfire, contemplating the dancing flames and toasting golden-brown marshmallows? However, to enjoy your fire responsibly and avoid the risk of uncontrolled fires caused by stray flames, it is best to get a fire pit equipped with a mesh cover, such as our models 066-5074 and 037-6790. If wood fires are prohibited in your municipality for environmental reasons, you can still enjoy a fire using one of our gas-powered models, which will give ambiance and warmth to any patio. Note that these models use 20 lb propane tanks, which are not included.

THE MODERN, URBAN LOOK

Hungry for comfort and style but only have limited space? We have just what you need: a great little patio set with benches. Its brushed-steel structure and treated-elm tabletop and benches make it an attractive and eye-catching piece on which to enjoy a meal.

Throw in a five-position loveseat with matching footrest (which slides under the loveseat to easily free up some space) to create a small, unique area to unwind.

A few potted plants, a gas fireplace, a few outdoor lamps, an outdoor rug, and voilà! You have an undeniably trendy deck.
