Have you exhausted your eagerness for another picnic in the park? Are you missing the ease of entertaining your nearest and dearest from the comfort of home? Well, with almost everything now back on the COVID safe menu, now’s the perfect time to refresh and revamp your outdoor entertainment area.
Australian’s love a backyard get-together. From celebrating special occasions with family and friends, to just catching up over a coffee or cup of tea, there’s nothing better than a casual invite over or even a pop-in after work or on the weekends.
They’re particularly popular this time of the year, during the Spring and Summer months, when the weather is warmer and you can make the most of Daylight Savings.
You might currently be focused on getting food and drinks, but no long awaited catch up is complete without cool and comfortable outdoor furniture first. You need items that can accommodate your whole family one moment, and just you the next, and will easily blend in with your décor and however much space you have.
Here at agos-co, we’ve got a wide range of outdoor entertainment essentials in stock and ready for any occasion at your place...
For Your Family
Be it birthdays, weddings and anniversaries, or long weekends and holidays, we don’t need much of an excuse to host a family dinner or BBQ lunch. From Australia Day, Labour Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, to Easter, Christmas, Queens Birthday, and sporting Grand Final Days, “did you want to do something?” is a conversation often had between relatives in the weeks and days leading up to a calendar event.
Depending on the size of your extended family and who you invite, you need to be ready to accommodate a lot of laughs, big appetites and bums on seats. This is where having the right dining table is important.
Outdoor dining sets are often the hub of the home if you’re partial to entertaining, so having one that is good quality, durable and versatile is the key. Our 8-seater dining tables and 6-seater dining tables and chairs are part of our stylish yet sensible Kyra Collection.
Timeless in design and available in two colour combinations (white and grey or charcoal and dark grey), it will compliment and suit almost any backyard and back patio set-up. Made from powder coated aluminium with olefin seats, they are sturdy and simple to assemble – plus they come with a 2-year warranty. Bon appétit!
For Your Friends
Obviously, we want to support our local bars, clubs and restaurants after such long stints locked down. However, for many special occasions, such as graduations, new jobs, housewarmings and New Year’s Eve, nothing beats at-home drinks with friends either.
You need an inviting outdoor entertainment area that makes you the host with the most! For that, you need a bar cart. Lightweight on wheels and weather resistant, it’s a super sleek and functional way to bring the bar to the backyard.
For times when all your mates come around, one of the above dining tables is the most appropriate whilst an outdoor modular set is good for a more intimate affair. Able to comfortably seat 7 people, it comes with a clean and modern coffee table too. No hot drink or night-cap under the stars with friends is any good without one – and it’s the perfect place to plonk your phone, bags and late-night snacks too.
For one-on-one occasions, however, you can’t go past a plush pair of white and grey 1-seater sofas to complete your alfresco arrangement. Ideal for long Deep & Meaningful sessions, you’ll never want to get up after settling in.
For Your Kids
Most people view a good backyard for their kids as having lots of space to run around and explore, or put trampolines and cubby houses. That’s all well and good, but as they get older and outgrow activities and interests as fast as their clothes, you’ll be wishing you opted for versatility over vivacity.
When school holiday and after-school playdates come over, a 3-seater outdoor sofa set becomes parental guidance HQ. Catch up with other mums and dads whilst your kids run amuck, and when they leave, it doubles as a spot for siblings to read together or watch movies and games on their phones in the evening.
If you’re playing host to your kid’s birthday party and have finished cutting the cake, this is when sensible sourced outdoor seating can really come into its own. Intrigued by a game of musical chairs that care? Our environmentally friendly Dura Green Ocean Chairs are made from 100% recycled plastics (clean and repurposed fishing nets for that matter!) and are durable and beautifully designed.
Our Nassau Coral Sand Chairs are made from Duresin - a unique formulation of polypropylene and polypropylene with fibre glass - and contain no harmful chemicals, making them suitable seats for all ages. They are hard-wearing, recyclable and maintenance-free, no don’t stress when the weather turns or if the kids make a mess.
Don’t forget to make your outdoor entertainment area work for just one person too – you. In the quieter months or the cooler seasons, you’ll be craving an outdoor sanctuary space, with furniture that evokes relaxation and tranquillity. Just you, the dog and the birds in the sky.
So, looking forward to a Summer siesta? A hanging egg chair is just the ticket. Made out of a beautiful beige wicker, on a robust iron frame, and with comfy and waterproof blue olefin cushions, our outdoor hanging egg chair will have you chilled out and swinging to the sound of silence in no time.
Fancy doing a bit of work, reading or study outside in the fresh air? You’ll need to get yourself a sturdy yet stylish little side table to spice up your space. Made of lightweight Duresin and easy to lift and manoeuvre with Eucalyptus and Teak Wood legs and a top handle, they’re available in a fusion of summery pastel colours, including shades of Peony, Honey and Sage Green.
If you can’t wait to snuggle up with your significant other, you can’t go past our cosy 2-seater sofa set. And don’t forget to upgrade your blankets and throws with some super warm, fringed varieties of luxurious green, cream and black Alpaca blends.
