If you have parents who have dedicated many decades of their lives working their best to give their children everything they have to help ensure they get a better future, it would simply be disrespectful not to help them be more comfortable when they do retire. Call me old-fashioned but I really do want my parents to sit back, enjoy the view of the beach from their balcony, and just while away their time. And while I am no expert in beach house interior design I do know that they need some pieces of furniture that are not only elegantly looking but are also comfortable to use. My parents are already in their 60s and whether they care to admit it or not, their bodies are no longer as sturdy as it was several decades ago. The last thing they will ever need is a furniture only adds strain to their already weakened body. Furthermore, I really would love them to see that their little girl has already grown up.
Helping my parents choose and purchase pieces of furniture for their beach house has been one of the most pleasant experiences I had. I never really did anything big for my parents except for the usual hugs and kisses and “I love yous” I tell them every time. Sure, I’d take them out for a treat but this was something different as I was actually helping them buy something and not the other way around. Like what I said, I am no interior decorator nor am I an expert in furniture. Nevertheless, I do know that my parents, especially my dad, loved wooden furniture. And I also know that both of them loved staying outside our porch just staring in the horizon every late afternoon. This is the reason why I knew a Hamptons style of outdoor furniture should be a fantastic addition to our beach house porch.
I have always bought my own wooden furniture from I Wanna Go Home as I found their products to be of high quality. All of their furniture are made from solid wood. Compared to other furniture shops that provide furniture made of veneer or even particleboard. The last thing my parents are going to need is a piece of furniture that will simply start to degrade after only a few months of use. I want them to enjoy their furniture. And so far only I Wanna Go Home has delivered on their promise of high quality products. Sure, some are from reclaimed wood. But, that is what makes it really invaluable. I am not only being assured of high quality furniture, I am also helping the environment. Anyway, for some furniture inspirations, visit I Wanna Go Home FB Page and you will see what I mean.
Now going back to the furniture for my parents’ beach house, I was actually thinking of choosing and buying for them a Bonsun Kubu rattan arm chair. But then I was also captivated by the beauty of the King Kubu rattan arm chair, the Bishop Kubu rattan arm chair, Knight Kubu rattan arm chair, the Queen Kubu rattan arm chair, and the Rook Kubu rattan arm chair. All of my choices were made of solid wood frame construction and fully-accessorised with a fluffy and immaculate white seat cushion. The chair was made of kubu rattan that has been woven by hand by skilled rattan furniture-makers. Rattan is a very durable material. I knew that I simply have to get at least two of these for my parents because the shell of the seat naturally conforms to the shape of the body. And since the surface of the chair is made of woven rattan, it provides a softer and more comfortable sitting experience. With my parents’ fragile bodies, these are simply the solution.
The biggest question was which of these I should take. It was a no-brainer actually. Since I was thinking of getting one for each of my parents, I knew I simply had to get the King and Queen Kubu rattan arm chairs. I knew that the chairs will fit perfectly outside our porch while my parents will spend the rest of their days just watching people go by at the beach.
When the guys at IWGH delivered the furniture pieces, I could swear I saw tears from my mom’s eyes. My dad hugged me like he just won the lottery. I knew I made the right choice. Now, both of my parents are happily spending the rest of their days just watching the sunset together in our porch.
