It would be obvious to assume that the sudden boom in Patio Furniture sales was due to the hot new trend of building "Outdoor Rooms" that originated on popular Home and Garden TV shows and in Outdoor Decor Magazines. But there's another less obvious explanation as well. Patio Furniture peices like the Garden Bench, Porch Rocker, Athena Adirondack Chair, Classic Adirondack Chair, Adirondack Loveseat, and Picnic Table are more and more being adapted for use indoors, particularly in Cottages and Cabins.
Perhaps the most versatile indoor/outdoor peice is the Garden Bench. The Garden Bench has long ago been adapted for use in cottage entranceways near the hat and coat rack. And more recently, there is a trend towards dressing up Garden Benches for use in Cottage sitting rooms using painting and stenciling techniques and adding designer pillows.
Similarly, Porch Rockers are being used inside Cabins and Cottages. Though many people choose to stain or paint their Rockers, many designers are recommending that you leave them unfinished for an indoor rustic look as the Cedar wood ages naturally.
Perhaps the most surprising recent development is the use of Athena Adirondack Chairs, classic Adirondack Chairs, and Adirondack Loveseats indoors. Many designers are creating sitting rooms in cottages and cabins using these Cedar Patio Furniture peices by adding pillows and sometimes upholstering the chairs with cushions and exotic fabrics.
Finally, the latest Outdoor Furniture peice to go indoors is the Cedar Picnic Table. Whether it's the Oval Picnic Table option or the Round Picnic Table set, people are now using them indoors in country kitchens and cottage breakfast nooks.
With slight adjustments (and sometimes none at all), Patio Furniture can be used indoors in ways that you perhaps never considered. One thing's for sure, wherever you decide to use your Cedar Patio Furniture - indoors or out - you are limited only by your imagination.
