7 Ideas for Patio Furniture Use in Winter

A lawn or garden decorated with stylish outdoor furniture adds extra splendor to a patio seating space, transforming your yard into a beautiful place to relax. We all love to spend time outside on patios throughout the year, but with the advent of winter, most of us either abandon our outdoor furnishings or pack up our patio furniture until summer is back. But winter doesn’t need to be a deterrent and in no way an indication to abandon the use of outdoor furniture.

Outdoor Patio fire-pit with furniture

It is true that the biting wind of a cold winter may prevent you from relaxing outdoors, but with proper arrangements, your outdoor patio space can be transformed into a cozy place despite the cold weather.

Using a Patio Heater:

      Make your winter evenings warm and comfortable by using a patio heater to protect yourself from the cold waves of winter. Patio heaters are easy to install and convenient to use. They can raise the outdoor temperature by up to 25 degrees, transforming your outdoor space into a cozy spot to enjoy the winter with family and friends. Please note, this is not the most ecological solution and frequent use of patio heaters can be a strain on your wallet.

Installing a Patio Fireplace:

      The larger size of an outdoor fireplace requires it to be installed in a particular location. Arranging patio furniture around an outdoor fireplaces is nice no matter what climate or season. The added ambiance to your patio makes outdoor lounging a real treat. Add a blanket, a cup of tea, and a book and you are good to go!

Placing a Fire Pit Table on your Patio:

      Fire-pit patio tables are quite en vogue these days. Adding a fire-pit patio table is a great way to warm you up and most of them look fairly stylish too. Fire pits are ideal for winter parties and get-togethers, however, the heat coming off of them is limited. Once again, add blankets for your guests and you’ll be fine.

Installing Wind Barriers:

              Winter winds can reduce the temperature on your patio by 10 degrees or even more, spoiling the cozy outdoor ambiance of your winter patio. Getting wind barriers made of bamboo or other light weight wood enables you to shield yourself from the biting winter wind.


Incorporating Good Lighting Features:

Installing patio lighting is a great way to illuminate your patio area in winter when the days are shorter and light becomes scarce. Soft and subtle lighting not only enhances the visual appeal of your patio but also allows you to spend more time on your deck and in your garden.

Choosing the right patio accessories:

The final and most important factor is to choose the right kind of patio accessories and furniture to enjoy the perfect winter outdoors.

When choosing these accessories, make sure that the cushions and blankets are made from water resistant fabric. And remember, fall and winter are both great seasons to find a fantastic patio furniture sale.

Michael Bublé on Beliani Leather Sofa

leather chesterfield sofa with Michael BubleIs Michael Bublé sitting on a Beliani Chesterfield sofa?

I found the photo in the House & Home magazine and can’t get the thought out of my head that this might be a Beliani couch. The photo shows Michael Bublé in his Los Angeles home, nothing short of a mansion, btw. The man has made oodles of money in the past years, selling his music albums all over the world. He is currently featuring a Christmas album, which I have not yet heard, but the marketing looks excessively cheesy, unfortunately. But that’s not the point here. He is a fantastic singer, so definitely deserves all the success, and oh, yes of course, he is Canadian, what else!

In the photo, he is smiling at us from a leather couch that could be mistaken for a Beliani Chesterfield sofa. I know, the man can afford the top of the line brands. But why not save close to two grand and buy a leather sofa with Beliani, that is almost identical to the original designer piece. Who can’t use that money for some other nice things, especially when the holidays are right around the corner?!?


Outdoor Wicker Furniture Production

We get often asked, how wicker furniture is produced. Here is a little video that I found online that shows exactly that.

The production process is practically identical, whether we talk traditional wicker or all-weather resin wicker. The starting point is the construction of a frame, which then serves as the base for the wicker weave.

In the case of Beliani Outdoor Furniture, the frame is made from lightweight aluminum. The main advantage of this material is its resistance against corrosion. It is 100% rust free. The wicker fibers used are made from polyethylene. In an artful manner they are woven around the frame by hand. Skillful workers ensure that the weave is tight and does not shift over time.

Leather Sofa for Toronto

This is just one of the Italian design leather sofas that Beliani is bringing to Canada. There are many products out there to choose from and certainly no lack of retailers for sofas and other furniture. But here is the thing: If you go to the Brick, Leon’s and the like, you are not going to spend a lot of money, but you also know, you will get furniture at the lower end of the scale. If you want a nice modern design, and don’t want to spend $5000 or more on a nice sectional, you’re most likely out of luck.

Beliani overcomes all the obstacles involved with furniture such as modern design sofas. Purchasing directly from manufacturers and selling online, cuts down on the cost significantly, and guess what, the consumer benefits by paying much less than with a conventional retailer.

Now there are drawbacks too: Beliani cannot offer a huge variety of products. The collection is limited to a few different models in only a few colours. And there are no beautifully decorated retail stores in the middle of downtown. But Beliani can offer a great customer service over the phone and online, and a 14-day full money back guarantee.

Beliani does a great job in making these designer sofas available to the public at super-low prices.
