WARREN, Mich., April 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- This summer is all about bringing the comfort and warmth of the indoors...outdoors!
Art Van Furniture, which has been furnishing the insides of Michigan homes for more than fifty years, is proud to debut Art's Backyard for everything you need for outdoor living, and the time has never been better!
Outdoor furniture has come a long way. Thanks to new technology, today's outdoor furniture is made of more durable materials. Wicker is not wicker, rattan is not rattan, cotton is not cotton and wood is not wood. All of these materials have been replaced by engineered synthetics that look identical but withstand the elements of Michigan weather and make the outdoor living room a reality. "That means outdoor furniture will look as good in 20 years as it does today with no or low maintenance," said Art Van Elslander, Art Van Furniture founder and chairman, "plus, there has never been a wider selection of sectional sofas with deep seats, oversized chairs, ottomans with extra storage, coffee tables and end tables, plus accessories to match the fabric on the cushions of on the furniture."
Art's Backyard has the looks and quality of the expensive high end catalogs at Art Van prices and features the largest in-stock outdoor furniture in the state, with more than a 1000 items including collections from Michigan made Lloyd/Flanders and Woodard as well as Jimmie's Rustics and Treasure Garden Inc.
One of the hottest items this summer is chat groups or fire bowl sets. "They're perfect on a patio, deck or backyard and can be both a table or an atmospheric feature!" said Jim Sica, Director of Seasonal products for Art Van/ Art's Backyard.
