Enjoying Your Patio this Autumn

Wait! This isn’t a holiday blog. Yes, it’s too soon for that and here at Pacific Patio we don’t believe in forcing holiday decorations, season’s greetings or blogs on you months in advance. So let’s celebrate Autumn. The forgotten Season in Southern California. As a Southern California transplant, from the Mid-West and the South, I long for Autumn days of driving down a road covered in different colored leaves from the trees above, that practically make you feel as though you’re in a nature made tunnel. These last few days of September have almost provided us with that feeling, minus the aesthetics of course, but the crisp feeling in the air was much welcomed after those triple digit weeks we were having.

So this year instead of jumping right into the Holidays, I think we should focus on the months and season we are in. Let’s see if that helps prolong 2020 feeling as though its coming faster than a Monday hits you after a weekend where you just happened to blink.

Getting back on point, Enjoying Your Patio this Autumn, I think this is the first proper step we, as Southern Californians, need to start taking. Is your patio a space that you can right now go outside and enjoy the rest of today? Or have a meal with family and friends? When I close my eyes and imagine myself on my patio right now, I imagine being in a super plush chair with motion, a Fire Pit (on low heat), warm beverage, with my kid and dogs all entertaining themselves in the background. Does it get any better? 

My favorite plush motion chair we have is the O.W. Lee Monterra Spring Chair. The back of the chair curves just enough to where it feels like a gentle hug. The side cushions under the arms provide that extra feeling of plush-ness that so many chairs don’t have. And the spring base that gives the motion, just has to be experienced in person.

The fabric selection O.W. Lee offers is just as amazing as the chair itself. Bold patterns, subtle patterns, stipes, solids and more. The options are plentiful. The fabrics are easily paired with O.W. Lee’s one of a kind finishes. Also with them being located here in Southern California, the lead time is pretty awesome. Who doesn’t love supporting another Southern California business?

Check out some of my other close contenders below. Now I’m on the taller side, so these chairs are chairs that fit me the best. I highly encourage you to come in and check out some of our other pieces. Also we’re in the beginning of our Fire Pit Sale (all in stock Fire Pits are 15% off).
