Outdoor Oasis

The best weather of the year is just around the corner – so is your patio ready?! Outdoor recreation has never been more popular as our patios become an extension of our homes for us to relax in or entertain. If your space isn’t quite up to par, our Michael Alan design team can help!

With our quality brands designed to endure the intense Arizona sun, you can furnish outdoors fearlessly. With everything from umbrellas to rugs, we can turn your patio into a comfortable and attractive outdoor oasis.

So let’s hear from our designers! What makes a patio great?

“The perfect outdoor room includes a cozy fire,” says Jill Trenholm. “We have a fabulous variety of fire pit coffee tables to counter height dining tables. There is something about gathering around fire light in the evening that brings a sense of comfort.”

“For me, it’s all about extending the indoors to the outdoor space by repeating colors and themes,” Tammy Gettess says. “And just like indoors, you can add texture with pillows, throws, lamps/lighting, art and plants. I want my outdoor space to be as cozy and comfortable as my indoor space.”

It’s not unheard of to use some indoor pieces outside too – especially if they are already worn out and no longer working for you inside.

Some of our designers prefer certain brands, like Deb Harris. “My go to is Ratana. I love the fabric choices and customizable color options for wicker/rattan furniture. And you can create several settings using the same collection.”

We also carry brands Mallin, Castelle, and more which allow you to completely customize your outdoor furniture.

Whatever your design preferences and unique outdoor needs are, Michael Alan is there to help every step of the way. Comment with your questions or ideas – we’d love to hear from you!
