With Tommy Bahama, All Signs Point To The Beach!

Since 1946, Ennis Fine Furniture has been providing Boise, the Treasure Valley and the Pacific Northwest at large with the highest quality furnishings and room decor. Family-owned and operated since day one, our success in this endeavor has been attributed to our zeal for quality, searching far and wide to provide products that meet our peerless standards. Over 75 years of experience has led us to form relationships that help us work to support that standard of exceptionalism. The brands we treat like family help return the favor by providing our family of customers with pieces that offer the variety, style and luxury the Ennis name has come to be known for.

Our friends over at Tommy Bahama Home furnishings have been providing top shelf craftsmanship for over 25 years, and we have been proud partners along the way. Featured this month during our patio furniture theme, the Abaco Collection from Tommy Bahama Home has all the right ingredients for sizzling summer gatherings or crisp fall evenings. This outdoor collection is a versatile one–over 28 individual pieces–all fully customizable to format whatever space you want to create outside. Perfect for dining in small bistro-esque spaces or large-scale patios, the Abaco is a friend to any backyard in need.

Like every design from Tommy Bahama, all signs point to the beach. This indelible stamp of carefree, breezy living epitomizes the lifestyle of never wanting to leave the company of warm, permanent sands and the soft crash of tumbling waves. Each of the unique fabrics offered through Tommy Bahama is customizable, but they all circle back to this theme: a big, bright day at the beach. Lots of colors criss-cross through the Abaco fabrics, taking inspiration from the crystalized innards of a cracked geode, these plush cushions have a pattern that will pull your guests in with its stirring vibrancy and keep them seated with offers of comfort that cannot be refused.

Support comes from frames crafted in hand-brushed aluminum, wrapped in all-weather wicker woven to resemble the shimmering hides of European leather. Clean and elegant lines bring a contemporary feel to the old world packaging while still minimizing the fuss associated with too much design. It’s great to look at, but it’s even better to sit in; i.e., the perfect chair. And those are just the seating arrangements! The Abaco Collection also provides a host of quality tables, most available with an inlaid white granite top sporting marbled streaks of quicksilver; the neutral hues being a great base for you to explore and express yourself with today’s more vivid, colorful trends.

If you find yourself unable to stop reading and talking about the Abaco Collection, come on down to an Ennis Fine Furniture location and chat with an interior design professional that shares the same passion for outdoor living!

Ennis Quality Patio Furniture is Unmatchable!

With all this precipitation deluged upon us in the last few weeks, it’s hard to believe that it’s June already and the sweltering days of summer will be fast at hand. If you’ve been following the skies, you probably have taken the extra inning of inclement weather as time to gather supplies for the Great Migration outdoors that will be moving people in strides as June slowly burns into July. Eventually the hustle and bustle, the throngs of crowds out enjoying the summer madness will drain your energy and you’ll be hunting for a spot of shade to lounge under and tune out the static for a while.

Hopefully, part of that supply-gathering meant getting the outdoor living area livable again. Taking the time to properly clean your outdoor equipment, sanitize its surfaces and clear dark corners of cobwebs and critters means you are taking the time to make sure this area is enjoyed to its fullest. Storing cushions and other soft fabrics associated with your patio furniture indoors during the winter will help preserve the life of the materials and keep them looking lively, helping to power the space’s ability to remove stress. Making sure this area is well-kept makes it that much more effective in ridding you of the mind’s countless unfinished tasks and ever-running trains.

With the furniture and decoration cleaned and prepped, it’s now time to arrange the area. To preserve the functionality of outdoor living while still having a design or a theme to thread your creative whims around, think about the activities you want from your backyard: barbecues, birthdays, larger events like weddings if you can swing it; knowing what you can get out of your yard will be essential here. You want to stage arenas that coexist with one another without overpowering the space. For instance, too many places to sit and not enough room to roam about will shrink the size of your yard, turning something cozy into something uncomfortably close. If you like to grill, be mindful of this when staging; some like the smell, others can’t stand the smoke. Having it at a distance will help create different energies for the spaces, one end for standing, talking, flipping burgers and preparing food, while the other end has more seating, end tables for drinks and tables for decorative displays, board games or snack trays.

Outdoor furniture with handcrafted, large, buoyant cushions and custom-fabricked arms make for great visual statements, but take up too much room to effectively seat large groups of people. For smaller outdoor spaces, having a seating area that is compact and self-contained is monumentally beneficial. At your local family-owned furniture store, Ennis Fine Furniture, we have many patio furniture makers that supply our showrooms with sets that are this exact specification. Take our sets by OW Lee, for example. The Monterra and Creighton selections, to be exact. Both feature light and slim metalwork to save space and weight, while the hand-stitched cushions appear to run over the edges, providing ample space and comfort on such a shrewd and handsome frame. Coupled with matching fabric chairs, these sectionals circumscribe a fire pit in a picturesque late summer, early fall scene. Want this locale to star in your backyard?
