Despite the sweeping advent of new materials such as steel, aluminum, crystal, chrome, etc., wood still keeps its stature as the master of all. The secret of this everlasting stardom of wood is not only its old age that has to be appreciated, but its unparalleled quality and effect that make it the pursuit of all. Wood may be used, along with other new, brilliant, smooth materials, for indoor furniture while for outdoor furniture, wood will be the strong candidate. Now, let’s examine the high quality and dramatic effect of outdoor wooden furniture.
Concerning quality, the most outstanding merit of wood furniture is its solidity and immunity against all kinds of attack, whether natural or artificial. For example, teak can withstand moisture, so it is usually used in yachts manufacturing. However, cedar is ranked at the top of the range of woods for outdoor furniture. First, it can adapt to weather with its versatile conditions, keeping its rich grain and fortifying itself against decay. Second, due to its anti-bacterial properties, cedar is resistant to insects.
Third, as for the bustle and brisk activities of everyday life, cedar furniture can endure all the shocks. Fourth but above all, cedar is the best because of its low combustibility and high safety; if it is exposed to fire, you will have enough time to extinguish it. Fifth, besides this high functionality, cedar retains its shape; it does not shrink or warp. Also, beauty is added to white cedar when it is left untreated to turn into beautiful silver gray or to any kind of cedar when it is stained to give a whole matching look.
As quality is so high, so cedar furniture can make the dramatic effect of a relaxing outdoor retreat for the whole family after the hustle and bustle of a crazy day. For seating, you have multiple choices: wood couches, armchairs, rocking chairs, lounges, etc.
The natural construction of such seating can release your stress and tension, especially when provided with some cushions for comfort. Then for beverage, get a wooden table whether a centre, end, bistro, or dining table. For cold seasons, get a wood burning fireplace supplied with wood fuel as cinnamon or vanilla for their fragrant scents. All in all, the natural essence of wood gives warmth and coziness that help you repose, relax, and meditate.
