What to Look for in Funky Garden Furniture
In our modern day, funky garden pieces can either bring your backyard to life, or absolutely make you the laughing stock of your friends, relatives, and neighbors. After all, while funk is still alive in some pockets of society, it is not nearly as widespread and understood by a large number of people today. Some can consider my first point of note for this article academic in nature. In looking for funky fixtures for your yard, you should attempt to blend funk with modern sensibilities. Fortunately, there are many resources available online (including this article) that will help you do just that. As we all know, funk does not have to be unattractive, weird (in a bad way), or come with all of the negative stereotypes that are often associated with it. If one of your goals is to bring funk back into your life in a way that will be seen as absolutely fantastic, then be sure to continue reading as I help you explore your inner funk for your furniture pieces.
So, what really defines “funky” garden furniture? For myself, I have a tendency to define it in a very basic way. I expect odd colors and shapes. Sometimes colors and designed that remind me of the hippie movement of the 70s and 80s. Perhaps if I take this definition to new heights, I would expect the furniture to remind me of a drug trip of some sort. Not that I recommend drugs to any of my users, but there is no doubt that funk as a style of music and behavior was often very associated with a variety of drugs that had the tendency to allow people to experience the world in groovy new ways. I think many people who want funky furniture want to be reminded of experiences of this nature, and the overall vibe of the time period as well. The cool thing I have learned from my research on funk furniture is that it is extremely diverse. Sometimes the pieces even look like they simply belong in a modern art studio exposition. In this respect, simplicity is often a major key for the best funk furniture.
The Best Funk Products are Right Under Your Nose–Check These Out!
I could spend hours just talking about funk on a deep, intellectual level. But, I am pretty sure that you as my readers are already aware of what funk is to a good degree. In order to save you from an unnecessarily long rant on funk and music, I think it is best to change the pace of this article and explore funk furniture in a very up close and personal way. There is no better way to get to know some great furniture pieces than actually reading some reviews of products, and looking at pictures until you find something that catches your eye. A few brands I highly recommend include Wayfair and Better Homes and Gardens.
My favorite of funky furniture is the Better Homes and Gardens Lake Island 4-Piece Conversation Set. The reason I have chosen this is because it is an excellent garden furniture set that includes two single chairs, a loveseat, and a table. The products are made out of a tightly woven wicker. The color scheme is very beautiful, and with some added floral pillows for the seating you will find that it declares funk in a very unique and modern way. Considering this set will be outside most (if not all) of the time, it is also waterproof and rust-resistant. While this product is a little bit pricey, it is important to keep in mind just how many products you are receiving. As an added plus, it has a high star rating across the Internet, and has been positively reviewed by many sources. Hopefully this is a good starting point for you to start exploring funky garden furniture for your backyard!
