I am super excited about some new product ideas I have. I have sketched some of them up in CAD, and couldn’t wait to put them out there for some feedback.
First item up is a wider version of our very popular dining chair. This new version will have a seat width that is an additional 3″, which will make it more comfortable for larger framed folks like myself.
Next, I wanted to add some coffee tables to match our side table. A lot of people set up their furniture on a patio or deck, and use it as an outdoor living type grouping, The coffee tables will lend themselves nicely to this. The coffee table is 4″ shorter than the side table, mainly because that is what I typically see in living room groupings. I couldn’t decide on using the same width as the end table, or another 6″ wider, so I am going to do both options.
What started this was that I have a patio umbrella that I bought a few years back, one of those “too cheap not to get it” kind of deals, and I figured I would come up with a use for it eventually. Well, to date I have not, so I came up with two Adirondack chairs joined by a side table. I can put a round hole with a grommet in the table and there is enough room below the table for an umbrella stand. Now that I have mentioned this, I will, of course, have to come up with a good source for umbrellas and umbrella stands.
While I was thinking about making the wider dining chair, I thought , “why not make a bench out of it too?”
Which, of course, led me to the idea of a porch swing.
