While most people think that indoor furniture is important, outdoor furniture is essential. As an African girl, I grew up thinking that outdoor furniture is for the ‘rich’ only. Embarrassing right? I later realized as I grew older that outdoor furniture is not luxury but a must-have for every home. It can be a chair, bench, set, or any other outdoor furniture you have, it will help you sometime in your life.
Let’s take a look at 3 reasons why you need outdoor furniture.
Durable Outdoor Furniture
While most bloggers/furniture shops list outdoor furniture as cheap I have never found cheap outdoor furniture in South Africa. I have found outdoor furniture prices reasonable.
I will explain.
The type of materials used for outdoor furniture is different from the type of materials used for indoor furniture. Wooden outdoor furniture, for example, is handcrafted using hard, durable wood like teak and ipe. These woods can last decades and decades with minimal maintenance. They have the ability to survive different types of weather.
For example, cypress, redwood, and cedar are three softwoods that have moisture-wicking properties, making them ideal for outdoor furniture.
Outdoor spaces connect us to nature.

Let your brain unwind everything that you went through on your day.
