Add a Touch of Sophistication to Your Patio
These cute little barrel shaped garden stools are an excellent way to add to your comfort in the garden.
Although they are known as stools, they make lovely coffee and drinks tables as well.
They’re perfect for when you’re having a glass of wine in the evening with friends on the patio and big enough to hold a couple of plates of dainty sandwiches or cakes, if you like to take afternoon tea outside in the fresh air on a warm day.
There is an amazing selection for you to choose from: there are round, square and hexagonal shapes and every color or design that you can think of from vibrant greens, dark sophisticated Chinese red, deep midnight blue, ones decorated with a blue and white Chinese dragon motif, zebra pattern and even ultra modern silver finished ceramic garden stool models as well as many other attractive colors and patterns.
Best place to buy ceramic garden stool
A good place to start if you are planning to buy a ceramic garden stool is on the internet, because thirty minutes spent in the comfort of your home admiring the many types of ceramic garden stool, will give you a much better idea of the sort of color and pattern that would best fit in with your home décor.
I always say that if you do your window shopping at home on the computer, you can save yourself hours of dragging around from store to store and ending up too tired to care what you buy.
You only have to type in the words ceramic garden stool into the search engine and you would be amazed at how many stores there are online offering some lovely ceramic, porcelain and pottery garden furniture and cute decorations like garden gnomes, frogs and other animal models.
Terracotta pottery plant pots filled with pink and white petunias or salmon pink bizzy lizzy make such an appealing border dividing your patio ‘outdoor room’ from the rest of the garden.
When I’ve been out in the garden doing a bit of weeding or dead-heading the flowers, I like to take a break by bringing out a cup of coffee and a plate of cookies, which I place on my ceramic garden stool.
Then I settle down comfortably in my chair beside it and enjoy the feel of the sun on my skin.
I’m always surprised by the many uses that ceramics can be put to and I guess it’s the durability and attractive surface of porcelain and ceramic that has made ceramic floor tiles and wall tiles such an enduring part of everybody’s dream home, inside and out.
I’ve always like the feeling of warmth and sunny skies that I get on a patio with a terracotta colored ceramic floor tile.
I remember visiting Spain one summer and the decorative ceramic tiles that you see everywhere in the bars and in people’s homes had the most wonderful geometric patterns on them.
Especially in the parts of Spain that were occupied by the Moors hundreds of years ago.
The Moors were finally expelled but the ceramics that they left behind them have remained popular and they really are so pretty.
I don’t remember seeing any types of ceramic garden stool there, but it’s a fashion that’s certainly doing well in the U.S.
