With three seasons of patio living here in Parksville, it pays to invest in furnishings that are built to last, and that suit both your style and how you’ll use the space.

Your perfect summer staycation starts here (Hint: It’s all about outdoor living)

Summer is made for the outdoors, and since we’ll likely be spending more of it close to home, why not make that space as inviting as possible?

We’re especially fortunate here in central Vancouver Island to enjoy outdoor living from spring right through fall. Of course, that’s also why it pays to invest in furnishings that salute both form and function – pieces that are built to last, and that suit both your personal style and how you’ll use the space, explains Parry Gallagher, owner of Coombs Junction Furniture.

It’s with that in mind that the local store has welcomed BC’s Ratana Canada outdoor furniture and accessories, pieces designed to maximize enjoyment of your space this summer. Since 1980, Ratana has committed to excellence in offering the finest home furnishings and accessories you’ll embrace for years to come.

“Today, it’s more important than ever to have a comfortable and private outdoor space – a place to relax, recharge or visit with close friends and family. Even a small balcony can become a refuge,” Parry notes.

Recognizing that home and personal styles vary greatly, “we’ve also been sourcing various textures like wicker and iron. New innovative technologies have also expanded options for outdoor living materials, bringing some entirely new and exciting design possibilities.”

Here’s a look at some essential pieces to create your ideal escape:

A dining set is a great way to enjoy family meals in the fresh air. Look for durable, easy-to-care-for materials in timeless designs. Many transitional pieces, for example, are easy to adapt to your own sense of style with accessories, whether you prefer a more traditional look or something more contemporary. Remember, something as simple as adding a pop of colour in unexpected places can revamp your personal outdoor space!

A cosy sitting area is a must outdoors – think your morning coffee, an afternoon visit with a friend or a Sunday read. From a comfy chaise to a sofa or sectional, Ratana is an environmentally conscious brand that seamlessly blends beauty and comfort. Go bright with brilliantly hued fabrics or cushions, or keep things neutral and let the garden do the talking. Either way, you’ll have an outdoor space you’ll love coming home to.
