Spring is here...
Spruce up your lanai.

Patio Now outdoor furnishings is a welcome addition to any lanai. They carry Suncoast furniture in such a wide variety and it is made right here in the USA! That's hard to find these days, just look at the labels on anything you purchase, it will more than likely say made in China!
There is cast aluminum with optional cushions available in any color you want. Many fabrics to choose from and they are especially made for outdoors living. They are mold and mildew resistant.
There are also several handsome wicker groups with a variety of sofas, chairs, ottomans and several styles of tables. Even wicker lamps to complete the look. The cushions are constructed with thermal bonded polyester fiber to provide maxium comfort, firmness and resilience. I loved the Madrid cushion aluminum extrusion group that was on display. It makes your outdoor space into a second living area.
Then there are the sling cast combinations, you can choose the color of the frame finishes. Many styles are approved for commercial use so you know they will last a long time. There is a 15 year warranty on frames, a 5 year on vinyl straps and 3 on frame finishes. This is so important with furniture that is left out in the elements. I have had my pub table and six chairs from another store for two years and it needs replacing as the chairs are falling apart! Also popular are the strap aluminum extrusion furniture.
You can even custom order the accent pillows to go on your furniture with your choice of fabric, cording or fringe!
There are umbrellas and umbrella accessories in any color to coordinate with your furniture. A wide variety of tables from drop in tile table top with a cast aluminum base to patterned aluminum tables or faux stone tops, faux mosaic or faux marble tops in many designs. Available in round or oval. The huge selection, also available in glass or welded fiberglass.
You will find some unusual pieces al well, the show stopper party bar, a handy service cart, bakers rack, sofa tables and a great fire pit that includes a 48" round cast top design with a copper bowl, grate and lid.
To complete the look is outdoor art. It is nylon UV treated canvases that is waterproof and never fades. A 30 x 40 piece is only $199. The mounting kit for the art holds a painting up to 50 mph winds. There are some great scenes to choose from.
Patio Now carries everything you will ever want for your outdoor room from furniture, rugs to lamps. The floor lamps are heavily weighted with wide bases and won't blow over in a storm, they just rock back and forth, if a globe is dropped it bounces! Amazing! All shaded lamps have covers that come off and can be washed. I loved the clip on solar lights at $24.95. They clip right on the pool cage and are made in Cape Coral. One customer bought two to see how they worked and came back for eight more!
They also carry outdoor placemats in every color for $1.99, acrylic glasses and dinner ware.
Manager, Brian Neylon was so kind to point out all the wonderful features and stressed the fact that they have excellent customer service. The factory is only 5 minutes away, you can mix and match anything and have your custom order within 30 days. They have been in this location for one year, it is a great store, go check it out.
Patio Now is located at 16205 S. Tamiami Trail, Suite 5 in Ft. Myers.
