Outdoor wooden furniture is durable, affordable, and can transform an outdoor space into a fun gathering spot for many different activities with family and friends, or a place to relax when when you need some “me-time.”

From the porch to the yard, to your pool deck and patio, we’re taking a look at ways to enjoy your outdoor wooden furniture on nice, long, sunny days.

On the Porch

The porch provides a gathering place for family members, neighbors, and friends.  It’s a spot used for relaxing and socializing.  Our solid wood swings and rockers supply just the right function and design for either playful or peaceful porch activities.

Host a Read-A-Thon

If you like to read in bed, you’ll love to read in bed on your porch. Grab your favorite novel, a refreshing drink, and cozy up for an afternoon of soothing swinging and satisfying stories on our Amish Cedar Wood Royal English Swing Bed.

Hold a Coffee Klatsch

Where better to enjoy the aroma and flavor of your favorite coffee than on the porch with a few friends?  Add a set of Amish Pine Porch Rockers and the stage is set for your daily “coffee chat.”

In the Yard

Enjoy some carefree time away from chores and commitments by escaping to your yard. A solid wood picnic table and the right set of chairs are outdoor staples for a lively yard.

Have a Picnic

Grab your picnic basket and head outside!  Enjoy conversation and laughter with friends and family at the Amish Cedar Wood Table with Attached Benches. There’s plenty of room at this picnic table for a sparkling pitcher of lemonade, platters of tasty sandwiches, salad bowls, watermelon slices, and those delectable brownies.

On the Pool Deck

The weekend is in full swing and you’ve already hosted a pool party, swam fifty laps, and successfully staffed the grill that served dinner for eight.  What else can you do on your pool deck?  Some lounge time just for you sounds about right.

Take a Noontime Nap

Grab a glass of iced tea and your current read and stretch out poolside on an Amish Pine Wood Chaise Lounge with Adjustable Back. Enjoy your beverage. Peruse some pages. And if your eyelids get heavy enough to take a nap on your comfy wood chaise lounge: Enjoy.

On the Patio

Your relaxing patio takes you outdoors for some time away from the responsibilities of the household.  A seat you can lounge and rest on is a patio essential.

Share an Ice-cream Cone

Take dessert outside on a clear night and enjoy the moon and stars. Catch up on the events of the day with conversation and your favorite flavor in a big crunchy cone as you nestle comfortably on the Amish Cedar Wood Marlboro Glider with a loved one.
