When you are searching for porch rockers, you want to be sure that you take time to find ones that are comfortable to sit in. Adding cushions is a nice, comfortable touch and also allows you to show off your decorating style even more. Try to get cushions that are made of fabric that is intended for outdoors. That way they will not fade as much in the sun and tend to dry more quickly after a rain. Always take into consideration the weather of where you live also. Since the chairs will be outdoors on your front porch you have to be sure that they will withstand the elements like hot sun, wind, hot and cold temperatures and humid or dry air. Otherwise, your investment will be short-lived.
A lot of furniture can be found in a typical business set up but one of the most important fixtures is the chairs employees use. There are several things that you should consider when getting chairs or office furniture, one is its capacity to keep you awake all throughout the day.
I wrote a piece recently on cool chairs. It got me to thinking how easy it would be to set up a little business creating really funky chairs out of materials found for free or nearly free just about anywhere. It is a lot easier to find used industrial parts than people realize. Often these parts can be cleaned up, polished, stained or painted and with a little creativity, turned into beautiful pieces of furniture that double as terrific conversation items.
Porch rocking chairs will not only add comfort to your front porch, but they also give a "come and stay a while" feel for anyone that comes over. Rocking chairs have been around for years on front porches because they make the perfect place for sitting and enjoying conversation.
These chairs take quite a bit of use and abuse, so you will want to make them from strong durable fabrics. It would be a good idea to make up many different types of chairs and sizes in a great variety of different fabrics. The more that you can show your customers the better it will be for your sales. Take pictures of all the different types of chairs that you can offer.
I owned a bar once upon a time and we really bootstrapped it. We were short on start up money and needed a bunch of tables. These tables also had to be quite durable as our clientele tended to drink and carry on quite a bit. I'll admit that it wasn't me but my partner Scott that came up with the idea. Industrial spools. We found a place in Montreal that sold and re-sold huge industrial spools, the kind that can carry a few miles of telephone wire, anywhere from two to ten feet in diameter. We rented a van and went down there. The place was totally fine with us helping ourselves to six spools, each about four feet high and four feet in diameter. We simply sanded them down and applied generous amounts of shellac. They turned out beautifully.
