We’ve sold patio furniture for over 40 years and have tried almost every brand out there. We soon learned that durability was most important in dealing with the salty air and the hot sun of the Central Coast. While comfort or design may be the top priority for most customers, we feel they will be most satisfied if their purchase lasts for years or decades, so we focus on durability.
Deep-seated cushions are hard to beat, especially when a little motion is added to the experience. For sitting around a fire pit or just soaking up the sun, swivel rocking chairs are the best. We have them in wrought iron, cast aluminum, poly lumber, wood and resin wicker. Because the skirt of the resin wicker usually is close to the ground, it hides the mechanism.
Cushion construction will vary from one company to another even within a manufacturer’s line. The fill and stitching make the difference in cushion comfort, and since comfort is such a personal thing, we encourage you to sit for a spell and see what cushion style suits you best. All our cushions are Sunbrella or other brands of solution-dyed acrylic and can hold up to sun and rain for a decade or more.
A big element of outdoor comfort is warmth. When the sun's not out, stay warm with a fire pit or patio heater. We stock over 70 styles of gas fire pits in 4 heights from the very low to bar height. While most imported fire pits are propane only, all domestically made pits can be propane or natural gas. If available, natural gas is the best option for cost and convenience.
Lava rock, faux wood ceramic logs, fire glass and ceramic faux stones are popular media for the flames to dance through. The table surface and size of fire pits can vary greatly, and for the widest selection of all aspects, look to O.W. Lee. They also offer the widest range of locally made options in the industry.
We've sold patio heaters since the '80s, and while the mass merchant heaters are designed to be disposable, we feature brands that can be repaired and maintained. Our basic philosophy of durable construction helps long-term satisfaction applies here.
