Why White?

What is it about white cushions that they seem to be the choice for any outdoor setting? A colour that shows up all the dust and dirt, can become stained and yellowed form being left outside, the place it was designed for. How is this a practical for the great outdoors, it isn’t, yet time and again people are buying white chairs to use for their entertainment areas, white plastic seats that can be handily stacked up and gotten out when you need them.
Of course there are other colours, like green or maybe some green or how about green, yep the selection is huge when it comes to getting cheap outdoor seating arrangements. It isn’t until you start going up market that other colours really start to make their mark and even then it is more about the cushions and the additional pieces that you can add, than the actual chair itself.

This is the appeal of white furniture, it is not about the practical implications, it is about contrast and how everything will work with white, it doesn’t matter what cushions you choose, the table cloth or table runner, even white on white all of these combinations work. So it does make sense in a decorating sense to use white furniture in your garden if you are going to go wild with all the added textures and comforts. It also adds to the simplicity of a setting if mostly everything is white, for some reason the lack of colour denotes elegance and taste, why this is so is anyone’s guess, it is also the colour of innocence. Maybe this is what everyone is trying to achieve in their settings, a time of innocence, occasions of simple pleasures. Sitting with friends and family, celebrating special events or just quiet gatherings over a few drinks and long hot afternoons.

Nothing too elaborate and fancy but if you did want to go and make the occasion memorable all you would need was some added touches and different colours and you could change the whole atmosphere of the settings but still not have to go out and buy expensive chairs to complement the area, instead you just change the way the chairs effect the area. If you do feel the need to shop a bit more upmarket than the old reliable plastic stock standard chairs then there are plenty of outdoor furnishings to go around and you can get just about anything you desire and if you can’t find it then there is sure to be someone who can manufacture it for you, at the right price of course. If you are really lucky you will have a handy man already in the house who can do all these little things for you and all you need are the appropriate materials, be a good girl and buy some beer to go with the chores you have delegated, will make the job much sweeter for the hammer wielding warrior.
