What is the Urban Patio

December 08, 2017

From sprawling Queenslander decks to open alfresco entertaining areas the outdoor lifestyle is a different fabric for every customer. Here at The Furniture Shack we love hearing about these new and emerging trends and designing the perfect suite for that space. 

Our early experiences in outdoor was always bigger is better! The outdoor space was a new entertaining concept and the brief was a plastic table and chairs or a solid timber set if times were good (off to mitre 10 for the teak oil!). The development of the outdoor space over our 17 years in business has been nothing short of phenomenal. We have seen the introduction of some amazing materials, styles and designs and R & D to bring these amazing products to a retail price that was affordable for everyone.

A new emerging trend which has really started to get some traction is the urban patio. A new challenge for designers - but something that we are really excited to work with.  Our network of stylists and designers have asked us to create a range made for units, townhouses and apartments. The brief was to make the most of a tight entertaining area, keep it affordable and make it easily accessible to clients all over the country. 

We get alot of demand for our occasional suites from Sydney and Melbourne outdoor furniture shoppers, who want to maximise usability of their outdoor entertaining area. They are looking for quality outdoor furniture that doesn't just fill a space - but "makes" a space. Multi use tables that can be used for coffee or dining and comfortable chairs that don't take up to much space. Locally, our Brisbane outdoor furniture shoppers are looking for ideas to fill the second patio, the space off the bedroom or more commonly now the front patio of their brand new unit.

Our Sorrento suite is the first hand selected for this range. Stunning design, comfortable and as a multi function it stacks away when not in use! We love it.

The Capri 3 Seater is a larger piece that can be run as a couch along a patio wall - but doubles as the most comfortable reading/relaxing space, with its amazing raised base feature!
