Decorating Your Patio Vintage Style
If you love vintage patio furniture, and you are ready to decorate your patio, then Etsy sellers have a great selection for you to choose from. You can find everything from vintage outdoor tables, antique patio gliders, vintage dining room sets, to outdoor filigree metal chairs.
Just like interior furniture, you can find various styles of patio furniture depending on the decade you are interested in. When decorating your patio or deck with vintage outdoor furniture, you can put together an eclectic mix of styles, or stick to one era's style.
Because antique and vintage patio furniture was left outdoors for at least several months of the year, you will have to look carefully to find vintage and antique outdoor furniture in mint condition, but it is available. And if you cannot find what you want in mint condition, then you can also restore it yourself.
Vintage Outdoor Patio Gliders
Just like rocking chairs indoors, vintage outdoor patio gliders are highly coveted pieces. Vintage gliders are comfortable chairs, and can be made to seat one or two, and sometimes even three people. Many of the vintage patio gliders were made in metal with a lattice or filigree style seat and back. Most vintage patio gliders have arm rests on both sides of the chairs, and are contoured to be comfortable for your seat and back.
Gliders, especially two or three seat gliders are more rare, and therefore the price on a mint condition glider is a little higher than other vintage and antique patio collectibles, but well worth the price for the right vintage glider for your patio.
Vintage Patio Dining Sets
An excellent vintage find is a full antique or vintage patio dining set. Vintage outdoor dining sets may be available in wrought iron, or rattan. Wrought iron is a much more durable material and can more easily be restored than many other types of materials. This makes is more likely that you will find a vintage wrought iron dining set on Etsy.
Wrought iron holds up much better in the weather, sun, and rain, and even if cushions need to be replaced, you still have the original framework for the outdoor dining set. However if you are looking for dining furniture for an enclosed patio area, then weather is much less of an issue, and you can use rattan there, even in the winter.
