One of the biggest advantages to living in the Palm Springs Valley is that we enjoy more than 350 days of gorgeous weather year in and year out. Sure, the desert temps creep up over the century mark in the summer, but even then we can still enjoy the great outdoors in the evenings under a sky full of stars.
Where to sit—or what to lie on—while basking in the sun or counting those stars is a common conundrum of homeowners here in the desert. Thankfully, in Rancho Mirage, there are plenty of places that sell quality outdoor furniture in just about every price range. But what do you do after a few years of bright light and near-bursting thermometers, when your furniture just doesn’t quite look so “fresh”? Sure, you can call me or one of the other designers in the area for help, but there’s also another solution.
I’m loath to give away another design secret, but there comes a time in one’s life when sharing just seems like the charitable thing to do. So if you need to spruce up that poolside furniture (rather than flat our replacing it), just head on over to PB Patio on 111. Yes, they sell a full range of quality wood and metal outdoor patio fare in case you do need to augment your seating. But if you already have items you love, you might just want to give them a makeover. PB Patio’s in-house designers are masters at taking your existing furniture and transforming it so that it boasts a brand new look. With services like powder-coating and wood and metal refinishing, as well as custom cushions and cushion replacements (in a dazzling array of great sun-hearty fabrics, I might add), your outdoor space will appear positively magazine-worthy. Of course they ship anywhere, and often you can have your purchases in as little as two weeks. PB Patio also has a very cool range of both custom and stock shade covers, awnings, and umbrellas—again in a huge array of colors and patterns—all ready to pair up with those beautiful new cushions!
