Weekly Spotlight: Web Exclusive Outdoor Furniture

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

That’s right – we’ve added more decor to our selection of Web Exclusives. And more specifically, to our selection of exclusive outdoor furniture. Take a look below.

Eucalyptus Serving Cart With Tray

Slatted Benches | Outdoor Serving Cart

These pieces are all crafted from eco-friendly, sustainably harvested Eucalyptus Grandis wood and finished with a natural oil finish. This makes them durable for use during the spring, summer and fall, and beautiful enough to enhance the natural, decorative value of your outdoor spaces.

The multi-purpose Serving Cart can be stationed on a patio or porch to hold drinks for a garden party or snacks and condiments during a barbecue. It’s also perfect for wheeling around your garden as you landscape or do some additional planting throughout the seasons.

Each bench offers an outdoor seating option; all you have to do is choose between the straight design or curved design. You can see more ways to orient the curved bench here.

Get The Look: A Cozy, Covered Country Porch

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

We love the look of a casual, comfortable covered porch. This one (from Houzz) effectively and functionally combines some of our favorite types of furniture to create a space that is perfect for chatting, having afternoon cocktails, or enjoying some peace and quiet. Below we show you how you can get a similar look on your covered porch by using furniture and decor from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

Cottage Rocker | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopCan you call it a country porch if there isn’t at least one rocking chair on it? We prefer at least two, and the ones on the covered porch above are just perfect. Our Cottage Rocker features a similar design and is available in seven colors (black shown to the left) so you can really personalize, coordinate, and/or contrast your porch. Although porch rockers command their space, they are also quite complementary to other porch furniture, like a couch or a bench. Wood benches are best, and you can make them more cozy by adding cushions and pillows. A Windsor Bench looks great with our Cottage Rocker, but you can also incorporate a smaller Pine Bench or other similar seating to fit your exact space.

Seeded Glass Hanging Lantern | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopTo ground the furniture pieces, and make your covered porch look more like an outdoor family room, use an outdoor rug and coffee table. Because it will be outside, make sure the rug is easy-care and durable – our Portico Cablelock Braided Rug Collection is made just for this purpose. The coffee table is a little more stylish than functional in this situation, but it still makes a great surface to set down drinks, snacks and a vase of flowers.

Finally, the perfect lighting fixture can turn any covered porch into a dreamy area as the sun sets and goes down. We love the hanging lantern in the Houzz picture, but you could also use a Seeded Glass Lantern or another light that is vintage or made to look that way.
