Style & Shape
Of course Resin Wicker is still ruling the industry with so many variations, thick, thin, wide, flat, round or textured. There are literally hundreds of options, but it really comes down to your personal style and preference. A thick racetrack weave is slowly losing its appeal. Round and flat medium weaves are still more commonly admired in the design of the patio furniture.
Sectionals still seem to be on everyone’s top wish list, but the practicality of them is not always ideal. You often lose the use of the corner space. Some companies have designed a corner custom fit end table as an option to make the sectional a truly usable seating area. Also, look for high top coffee tables. This is one of the latest trends in sectional design, and its moving to sofa sets as well. Look for sectionals with dining height coffee tables. This ensures you are comfortable AND can dine all in the same place.
Truthfully, the most versatile for most backyards is still a sofa or loveseat with a lounge or club chair. So many of our customers come in shopping for sectional, but a good percentage see the flexibility of having one or two sofas and loveseats with separate single chairs.
Sectionals are the perfect way to accommodate a corner or curved space, but don’t forget to work practically for your space and get the most seating for your budget!
