Outdoor Firepits for a Chilly Night
While firepits won’t heat an entire patio, it can keep a conversation going all night between friends. Each year we see a spike in outdoor gas fire pits. O.W. Lee has an array of choices from stone top to cast aluminum with sizes of 42” to 54” round along with rectangle and 48” Square. The fire pit media can consist of glass pebbles, lava rock granules or faux wood. The glass pebbles have a neat effect because the fire will illuminate the stones for added appeal. Th...
Choosing the Right Color
So many times, the hardest task in choosing new outdoor furniture, is knowing where to begin. That would include choosing what colors you will be using in the space you plan to furnish. Honestly, I have had customers fall in love with a throw pillow, and we have used it as inspiration for the color scheme to be use throughout the entire space. It typically doesn’t happen that easily, so before coming into the store to look for furniture, take a really good look arou...

Outdoor Umbrella and Outdoor Cushions in the Sunnyland Clearance Center
The outdoor umbrella is an important part of outdoor living. Living in the Dallas area, we experience lots of sunny, warm weather. The solution to beating the sun is an outdoor umbrella because not everyone has a covered patio. You can see lots of umbrellas at different stores and places. However, the best place to find different styles is in the clearance center at Sunnyland.
Dog Days of Summer
Here, we are in the Dog Days of Summer, and I do mean DAWG! The temperatures are soaring over 100 degrees, with no rain in sight. The good thing about this time of year is that one of our favorite seasons, fall, will soon be here. You may be thinking to yourself, how much do I want to put into my patio and outdoor furniture with the cooler weather coming? I have lived in the Garland - Wylie - Sachse area for over 30 years, and I have learned first-hand that you can use your patio year aro...
Gifts for Mothers Day and Other Holidays
Mother's Day is coming up. This is the day that we can show our appreciation for all the wonderful things our mothers have done for us. She is not only responsible for us being here, but she also loves and cares for us more than anyone on the planet. You don’t need a special day to get her something, but when Mother's Day rolls around you immediately start trying to think of a special gift for her. Your thoughts go to personal things, such as jewelry, perfume, clothes and always ca...

The Sunnyland Experience
Sunnyland, in my opinion, is the very best store for outdoor patio furniture (of course I might be slightly biased). The moment you walk through the front door, you immediately know you are about to experience something special. But the Sunnyland experience goes deeper than the products you can touch, there are real people behind the beauty of our store.
