It’s time for another sunny South African summer, and boy things are getting hot here in Durban! With the (much) warmer months rolling around at a rate of knots, we thought it a good idea to have a look at some super summer patio style ideas you can implement before you begin hosting visitors in your home’s outdoor areas this festive season…

Highs and Lows

Here we’re looking at the seating arrangements you make use of on your patio. While having a full set of padded outdoor seating, like the Ciri Cube Set, is great for hosting cool margaritas while watching the sun descend below the horizon – what about those late afternoon braais that turn into outdoor evening jols around the fire?

Coming in at around 1.2 metres above the ground, the Beth Bar Table is at the perfect height for socialising around, and features enough table top space for both snack platters and drinks. Need a few high chairs for around your new bar table? See our Alifurn Bar Stools here!

Suspend Your Shade

You get regular outdoor fabric umbrellas – and then you get the Alifurn Madiba Umbrella! This patio umbrella features no central pole, rather operating on a system of aluminium support and suspension poles that provide for convenient movability around your outdoor living space.

Get Some Side Action

What would an outdoor living area be – complete with sun loungers and outdoor umbrellas – without matching side tables? The good news is that our Alifurn Side Tables range is sure to have the side table that will complete your outdoor furniture set like a dream! Whether you like them round, square, short or tall – you’ll find your perfect outdoor side table at Alifurn.

Out of Sight, Out of Sun

This one’s more of an outdoor furniture tip than a style idea, but becomes more pertinent the warmer the weather becomes! Unfortunately, that big yellow ball of brightness bronzing us during the summer months is rather damaging to the material used on our outdoor sofas and chairs.

Here’s the tip. Invest in an Alifurn Sam Storage Chest for your outdoor living area. Why? The Sam storage unit is perfect for storing your outdoor furniture’s cushions – preventing the inevitable damage that comes from exposure to the elements.
