Beliani Furniture Outlet on Gordon Ramsay TV Show

outdoor wicker dining set patio furniture

Beliani Furniture will get it’s first TV appearance in the dramatic show “Hotel Hell” with celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.  FOX network has finished filming its episode at Meson De Mesilla, a troubled New Mexico, Rio Grande Valley Hotel. The show is planned to air this fall.

Online furniture outlet Beliani had been approached to provide some of their modern design patio furniture, which would be used to re-vamp the hotel. The photo above shows the outdoor wicker dining set. The US management was thrilled, “what a great opportunity to show our fine products to the North American public!”

With “Hotel Hell” Fox uses a similar plot as with “Kitchen Nightmares.” Gordon Ramsay will face a struggling hotel and try to turn it around while all drama is let loose between the owners, management and staff. Ramsay will live up to his reputation of being brutally honest, explicit and loud while dealing with everyone around him.

Built in the 1980s the Meson De Mesilla was once an affluent jazz hangout. The place has been run down and Ramsey shall be the hero picking up the pieces and getting it back on track. Below is a video that shows the hotel before the show. It gives insights into the management and an interview with the oblivious owner.

“I am getting nervous,” said Ceara Angel, 33, Meson de Mesilla’s lead chef (before filming). “I respect him as a chef. Sometimes people need to hear the hard truth.”

It remains to be seen, what kind of verbal and physical abuse the chef as well as the furniture will have to take from Ramsey….

What 2013 Will Bring for Outdoor Furniture

The patio season is over, snow may have hit in some places and mostly patio furniture is stowed away. Christmas has past and 2013 has just started, be it a good one! But what will it bring in terms of outdoor furniture? Which are the ultimate new designs?

Here is a quick outlook into what 2013 may bring. While design is always the main focus, we look through the lens of materials, that patio furniture is made with. Woods, plastics, metals, everything goes.

Durability and functionality are always important factors in patio furniture. These pieces by James De Wulf are modern and comfy. Made with high density foam and memory foam, the structures come with removable covers that are machine-washable, UV-resistant and quick drying.

Wicker has been a trend for a few years now and will continue to conquer North American hearts. While mostly modern designs in all-weather wicker are en vogue, traditional style garden furniture plays an important role. In the video is a durable resin wicker dining set offered by Beliani. Cushions are made with high density foam again, removable covers with outdoor fabric.

Metals are on the rise. While everyone knows wrought iron furniture, stainless steel and aluminum frames will have a stronger influence in 2013. Designers around the globe have developed gorgeous modern dining sets and outdoor sofa sets made with these materials.

What Materials Should I be Looking for in Outdoor Furniture?

Let’s face it; the days when you threw a bunch of fold-up chairs on your lawn and called it a backyard retreat are over. Not only have your guests stopped smoking that stuff that made them feel like they were sitting on poofy little clouds, but also, your options with regard to outdoor furniture have dramatically changed. Patio furniture can be quite an investment nowadays. And who wants to be left in the rain, when the sun can shine so bright on your exquisite outdoor living space?!

Or, as my old friend Naveen would phrase it: “Patio furniture form a significant part to fashion your patio space, such as backyard, lawn, terrace, porch, etc., wherein you prefer having outdoor fun.”

To experience that fun, you should know about the different materials available in outdoor furniture. They range from plastic to wrought iron, stainless steel or aluminum, from teak and other woods to fiberglass. The main issue remains: How to make the furniture durable, comfortable and low maintenance at the same time?

outdoor furniture chair iron materialWhen choosing the material for patio furniture, climate plays a considerable role with regard to durability. For example, if you are residing in a rainy or humid climate, like Vancouver, Seattle or San Francisco, plastic would be more suitable than wooden or iron based outdoor furniture. Steel tends to rust and wood requires lots of maintenance in the form of oil, varnish or paint in order to keep it looking sharp.

Patio furniture made of wrought iron is known for its durability and strength. Often, this kind only comes in traditional designs. Look out for brands that protect the iron with a solid coat of plastic. Check for seams and welded areas that might be un-covered. Those will definitely rust, when exposed to the elements.

Teak is a more natural choice and can be a good alternative. It contains resinous lubricant to protect itself from the wrath of sun and rain. Moreover, high content of silica present in teak makes it resistant to mould and fungus. Teak needs to be oiled regularly for it to maintain its natural shine and qualities. It is one of the best materials for outdoor furniture, although it can be pricey.

Patio furniture made of fiberglass is also known for its durability as it never rusts or shrinks. Being water-proof, it easily resists mould and mildew.  However, one of the major drawbacks of fiberglass is that it can start “peeling” off over the years. You will constantly have the particles on your hands and arms.

stainless steel and aluminum patio furnitureA big trend with homeowners as well as bistros, bars and restaurants is steel or aluminum for outdoor furniture. Available in a wide array of styles, shades and shapes to fit your needs stainless steel and aluminum both have the characteristics needed for a durable piece of garden furniture. Watch out for the weight difference; aluminum frame furniture is usually light weight, while a stainless steel table can mean a significant load.

More recent materials include garden furniture made from polywood, basically a wood imitation made from virgin or recycled plastic, as well as cement furniture.

These are some of the best materials for outdoor furniture. They often are combined, e.g. you will see a stainless steel frame dining table with a teak top or an aluminum frame lounge set that is covered with plastic wicker to give it the natural look. Durability is key when exposing your new patio chair to the rain and sun. So make sure you choose the material accordingly.

Beliani carefully selects the materials in its outdoor furniture to ensure a durable and comfortable customer experience. To peek at the latest collection click here.

6 Ideas for Designing the Outdoor Patio Space

Patios are wonderful places to entertain guests, dine alfresco and relax outdoors after a long day at work. Whether you have a tiny apartment balcony or an enormous backyard deck, creating an outdoor patio area allows you to extend your living space without costing you a dime in construction costs.

Here are a few ideas you can adapt to design your own outdoors patio space:

1. Draw your patio space

Measure your available outdoor patio space and trace it to scale on graph paper. You need to know the exact amount of space you have available before you start buying furniture and amenities.

Assess your patio to determine what the typical traffic patterns should be. Plan to keep the high-traffic areas clear of built-in amenities and furniture.

Consider the layout of your landscape and evaluate any walkways, shrubs or trees that might affect outdoor patio plans. For example, you and your guests might not enjoy dining beneath a draping tree, but the tree might make a lovely decorating element.

2. List elements you would like to include on your outdoor patio

If you enjoy feeding your friends and family, plan to create an outdoor cooking area with a food prep counter, a grill, a dining table and plenty of chairs. Cocktail party throwers might prefer a patio that includes a built-in bar, a water fountain and a fireplace. patio with outdoor furniture and bbq

Other ideas include creating a cozy conversation area with comfy sofas or chairs arranged around a built-in fire pit. Reading nooks require walls or landscaping elements that add a little privacy.

Get out your outdoor patio plans and draw in any elements to scale. When drawing, make sure you keep any grills, fireplaces or fire pits well away from your house and large landscaping plants.

3. Consider the style of your home

A patio with aged-looking furniture and classic brick flooring will blend better with a traditional house, while outdoor furniture with simple, clean lines and sleek stone floors would probably blend better with a contemporary styled home.

A cottage-style home would look absolutely charming with artificial grass flooring, weathered furniture and a little, white picket fence enclosing the patio. Some small balconies can only hold a bistro table with two small chairs.

4. Find comfortable patio furniture

You want your family members and friends to feel just as comfortable outside your home as they do inside. Choose chairs with comfy seats or plush loveseats or sofas. Always include a lot of pillows and cushions so your guests can sink into them and relax. outdoor furniture on patio with fireplace

Entertainers should find a dining table that accommodates a large party so guests will want to linger over their outdoor meals. Make sure you leave plenty of clearance around the table so your guests can move around easily.

5. Have fun with colors

If your patio is right up against your house, define your outdoor space with a bold color. Use vibrant colored rugs to add gorgeous texture and introduce colorful, fun patterns in seat cushions or outdoor curtains. Be sure to use only fabrics designed for outdoor use, however.

6. Light your outdoor space

Hanging lanterns or lights brighten up any outdoor space and add an additional decorative element. String twinkling lights to make a large space seem more cozy or romantic. Place outdoor lights on railings to make a small patio feel larger.

Use the above tips to design a comfortable outdoor patio that functions as both an entertaining space and a private retreat. Whatever style you choose, search around online to find the best prices. Online stores such as http://www.artificialgrasssuppliersuk.com often offer less expensive flooring options than you can find in brick-and-mortar stores.

How to Shop for Patio Furniture – A few Essential Tips

So you got the new house with this beautiful backyard or large deck. But it all looks pretty bleak without furniture. You want something fast, because all your friends are coming over for the house warming and they certainly will want to sit down, at least after they tasted your latest martini creation, right?

Problem is, there’s so much choice that it’s hard to know where to begin. And your headache is getting a bit more thinking about all the factors impacting a comfortable as well as attractive outdoor space wherein you can relax and entertain family and friends. If you are buying patio furniture for the first time and have no clue as to what to look for in outdoor furniture, the following guidelines will help you shop for the best patio furniture.

First, it is essential to take the weather conditions into consideration while looking for patio furniture. For example, dry and hot weather conditions can make some wooden products crack. Similarly, traditional wicker furniture fails to withstand moisture and has to be constantly maintained. All-weather wicker will be a better choice and aluminum for instance does not rust. If you are looking for something that doesn’t need much maintenance those two materials are a good choice.  Wrought iron furniture can last for a long time withstanding heat,  moisture and dry climates, but it stands the risk of getting rusty.

Also, you should take into consideration the space needed for outdoor furniture. For example, if you have a small outdoor area, you may opt for a bar table set or bistro set rather than having a huge dining set or sectional sofa. Best is to measure the area that you have available before you head out shopping. The size of outdoor spaces tends to be much harder to guess than indoor rooms.

Depending on space available and functionality required, choose your most important piece of outdoor furniture. For example, if you will be mainly dining outside, choose the dining set first, or choose a bar set, that can be used for drinks and dining.   If you have enough space, you may want to add chaises, recliners, hammocks or day beds for relaxing outdoors. For a wonderful outdoor experience, pair everything with matching accessories such as pillows, umbrellas, fire pits, planters etc.

Following these easy guidelines will prevent you from just buying patio furniture blindly without knowing what patio furniture is best for outdoors. There are a couple of very prominent and reputable vendors in Canada. Dedon, Jardin Le Ville, Hauser, Andrew Richard Design are some of the brand names for outdoor furniture. Shopping with these brands is a save bet.  The only pitfall is that they tend to be pricey and hence, not affordable for all of us.
