We’ve compiled a little list of furniture and accessories for updating your outdoor space. Everything on our list is made in Canada.
▪️Update your deck or patio with recycled plastic outdoor furniture. Berrylaneoutside Renfrew has a good selection of Adirondack chairs, couches, tables, and other pieces made by C.R. Plastic Products in Stratford Ontario. 206 Kunopaski Road, Renfrew.
▪️Going on the road? The portable Cotton Weave Chair by Lēzher will ensure you’re the most stylish picnic-er in the park. $150.
▪️Les Écolorés sells pre-washed waffle cotton table cloths, runners, and napkins in a wide range of colours to suit any summer table. Made in Saint-Sauveur, Quebec. $8.50 - $74.95.
▪️When one is preparing a jug of lemonade, Sangria, or Pimm’s at home, one requires something special with which to stir the good stuff. One really likes the Stick for Lemonade & Sangria by la Louve. Handcrafted from recycled wood in the Laurentians village of Val-David, the stick is slender and stylish. $22.00.
▪️Don’t forget to bring your own style as you wield your magic at the BBQ. Get a good looking, durable apron from MiLeMerveilles, who offers your choice of primary and secondary colours. Made in Quebec.
▪️Don’t use just any old bamboo sticks for your veggies. Get a set of three steel skewers from Cloverdale Forge, hand crafted in Winnipeg by award winning blacksmiths. You read that correctly. $38.
▪️At this time of year, you'll want to keep the blackflies and ‘squitoes at bay with citronella candles dotted around the dining area. Maker House has Canadian-made citronella candles by Au Naturel and Lucky Clover Candles. At Ottawa Artisans, the Cement Outdoor Citronella Candle by Relief Handmade comes in a variety of finishes to look good on the deck, and it’s only $15 right now.
Deal of the day
