Creating the Perfect Outdoor Lounge Space

Outdoor Lounging is typically a designated area of your outside space (a patio, covered porch area, or somewhere paved out) and comprises of lounging furniture. This could be anything from outdoor sectionals and big lounge chairs to hammocks! Above all, the outdoor lounging space is casual, and personal to you and how you use your outdoor space (entertaining or personal use).

Backyard Fun Facts:

Did you know that the backyard dates way back to AD 43?! Back then the furniture was very basic, usually only consisting of an uncomfortable stone or wooden bench during the Roman and Greek eras. According to many sources, the oldest surviving examples of outdoor furniture were found in the ancient gardens of Pompeii in Italy. Even then though, having an outdoor space, let alone furniture for them, was considered a place of luxury to relax.

It was only during the 17th Century that new furniture ideas began to take shape for the outdoor spaces. The idea that furniture shouldn’t be confined to the inside started to spark more comfortable outdoor furniture solutions. Public parks and gardens emerged during the 19th Century which increased the demand for outdoor furniture even more.

Nowadays, outdoor spaces are an integral part of our lives! Influencing house prices, and are a standard when looking for a hotel with outdoor facilities. Creating an outdoor lounging area for your home is a key part of enjoying the outdoors, which we all know does wonders for our health.
