Stage Managers for theater companies have a saying for getting everything they have for their productions: buy, borrow, or build. When you go to see a production, everything you see on the stage was either bought for the theater, borrowed from another theater company, or built by their own carpenters. While your home may not be a formal stage, the same principals apply for finding the perfect outdoor furniture for your lifestyle.
● BUY: Quite possibly the easiest way to find the best outdoor furniture for your lifestyle, shopping around can help you decide on a theme and variation for your home. Many current furniture designs can work around what you want to create, and compliment other fixtures that you may have or are thinking about getting. If you have a little time before deciding on what you want, shopping around to find the right items is the best way for you to go. But never settle for the first thing you see – always look at more than one place, to find exactly what you want, or to piece together some of your favorite items.
● BORROW: While I can not condone you asking your friends, family, or neighbors to borrow their outdoor furniture, you can certainly borrow ideas from them. Take a look at what they have done with their backyards, in order to gather plans for your own. And if you see a piece that you like, ask them where they got it. Everyone has pride in their furnishings – if you ask, you’ll probably get a lot more than you ever thought you’d receive, and some great ideas for what to do with your home. The result comes in the perfect outdoor environment for you and your family.
● BUILD: If you have tried looking everywhere for that perfect chair, or have exhausted all your friends with finding the right end table, you can always build your dream outdoor furniture. A simple search online will help you find designs for all kinds of different items, in infinite themes. And with a little handy work, you can truly make it your own, by adding your own flare and accessories. But be careful out there – if your craftsmanship isn’t perfect, you could be paying more in the long run: repairs, refinishing, and lost time could make this option less feasible. Make sure you do your homework before you drive your first nail.
In many ways, art reflects life – we create based on the things that are around us, and that we love so dearly. But in the case of outdoor furniture, art and life intertwine. Our backyards are not only where we entertain; our backyards are where we find inspiration, and be surrounded by a scene only nature could create. Taking the same approach of life reflecting art will help you compliment your outdoor space with the best outdoor furniture, creating a welcoming environment to relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
