With daylight savings in full swing, more and more people are looking forward to spending time on their patios or decks. And for those people looking to make more of a splash with their outdoor décor, driftwood furniture offers an eye-catching alternative to the traditional red picnic table or plastic stackable patio chairs.
Driftwood patio furniture is constructed from wood taken from weather-beaten areas, islands, river beaches, etc. The true beauty of driftwood, besides the natural, back-to-mother-earth appeal, is that no two pieces are alike. So you can create your own unique look for your patio.
“Driftwood enables homeowners to get a little creative. You can purchase a distinctive driftwood table base, secure a piece of glass on top of it and, voila, you have a stylish outdoor or indoor coffee or accent table,” said Sara Shragal, of DirectBuy.
Bamboo is another wood that provides a stylish and durable option for your outdoor furniture. While it’s fairly well known that bamboo is one of the strongest materials in the world to make furniture, it’s become even more popular because the process of making bamboo furniture is environmentally friendly.
Another selling point to bamboo is its versatility. All types of patio furniture and accessories are constructed with bamboo—tables, rocking chairs, chairs, shades, umbrellas, stools, side tables, coffee tables, photo frames and even rugs. So you can literally create your own “bamboo room” outside.
“Bamboo furniture gives a patio a cozy and personal atmosphere. Even though it’s polished, it retains the natural grains and color of bamboo and this adds to its rustic charm,” said Shragal. “When you throw in the great look of bamboo with its durability, you end up with a real winner for your back deck, a sun room or patio.”
