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.

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.

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.
Beliani has been providing its customers with durable patio furnitureof great quality at unbeatable prices. They carry a variety of modern design furniture including, outdoor dining sets, sectional sofa sets, loungers and more.
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.
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 illuminateyour patio areain 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. Selecting comfortable patio cushions and patio blankets is essential to shield your family and guests from wind chills. 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.
