Beliani continues to conquer North America. The refreshing sleek design of our outdoor furniture collection is convincing and so is the quality. Customers in the USA and Canada love the lifestyle the furniture brings with it. Beliani’s patio furniture puts an emphasis on relaxing and enjoying. With our sectional lounges and outdoor sofa sets, we bring the living outside. Comfort and modern style are no longer contradictions, they are brought together and build the basis of a new home-feel experience.
In an effort to attract an interesting clientele, bars, restaurants and clubs are constantly looking for ways to stand out. The Montreal club called “New City Gas” has done an incredible job at accomplishing exactly that. The industrial brick buildings offer a great landscape. Nestled in between the buildings is the clubs patio. With the modern design it presents a contrast to the rough industrial background. The choice to use wicker modern patio furniture by Beliani is not a coincidence. The sleek design paired with a subtly striking white and grey palette provide a perfectly clean look and invite guests to sit down and relax with a refreshing drink.
Find more great photos on the New City Gas website as well as a schedule of events. If you are ever in Montreal, stop by. Amazing music and more awaits; a truly unique place.
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….
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.
This simple bench is made with cedar sides and an aluminum seat. Cedar combines well with metals and weathers into a grey tone. You can also treat it in order to maintain its fresh look.
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?
When 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.
A 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.
