How to Choose Commercial Grade Pool Furniture for Hotels and Resorts

When designing a welcoming outdoor venue for hotel and resort guests, the outdoor pool area can be one of the more challenging areas to make an impression.

The pool deck needs to be furnished in commercial pool furniture that can withstand the rigors of natural elements and the high-use and repeat cleanings necessary to maintain commercial outdoor pools and patios. Yet you also want it to offer comfort and convey the potential for relaxation and spa-like experiences.

Beaufurn can help your hotel or resort welcome your guests to a virtual oasis with its full range of all-weather, commercial outdoor furnishings from side tables to chaise lounges and commercial umbrellas.

Commercial Picnic Tables for Beautiful Outdoor Design

Commercial picnic tables are a necessity in any park or public area. Designers frequently seek metal picnic tables that are mounted to floors and easy to clean since they’re likely the most durable and are client-friendly.

Best Patio Umbrellas for High Wind Conditions

When purchasing an outdoor umbrella to complement any installation design consider the probability that bad weather conditions could eventually affect the result. It can be difficult to plan for the unpredictability of weather, but it still makes sense to understand the potential effect of high wind by examining how it can impact the umbrella system you choose.

What Is the Difference Between an Offset and Cantilever Umbrella?

When you want to create a seamless transition from an indoor setting to an outdoor setting, maybe to expand the entertainment space of a hotel lounge or encourage students to enjoy nature while studying outside the campus library, commercial umbrellas can play a key role in your design.

There are basically three types of umbrellas suitable for commercial use: offset, single pole, and cantilever. The single pole is self-explanatory, of course. But what is the difference between an offset and a cantilever umbrella? Offset patio umbrellas include a post to the side while cantilever umbrellas may include a post to the side but can also be wall-mounted.  Cantilever umbrellas are offset umbrellas.

This is ideal because their canopies open to the side, providing more space underneath for seating.

Let’s look at some of the other advantages of offset cantilever umbrellas.

How to Choose the Right Commercial Umbrella

Commercial-grade umbrellas for outdoor use come in various shapes, sizes, colors, and their cost may vary. Their ability to expand a restaurant or bar’s serving capacity, however, is invaluable. So, too, their ability to enhance poolside accommodations in the hospitality industry.

If you’re ready to help clients expand their guest accommodations or restaurant footprint, you may be wondering how to choose the right commercial umbrella for your project.

You can determine which commercial umbrella to choose by considering its desired function, the amount of shelter needed, the size of the space to be sheltered, the site’s environment, and the umbrella’s durability. And, of course, its style!

Read on to take a closer look at how to best choose the commercial umbrella for your outdoor seating area, whether designing for dining, poolside relaxation, or creating spaces for people to congregate while protected from the elements.

What To Expect at Fall Markets: Design Trends and Showcases

Has the novelty of working from home worn off? Has the deluge of artificial intelligence and digital everything inspired consumers to head for more nostalgic, simpler surroundings? From our vantage point, the answer is yes…and no. This year’s fall markets are showing numerous design trends that seem to showcase all sides of any issue. This is good news, of course, because it means architects and designers will be able to create spaces that appeal to a wide audience (and sometimes, one space that appeals to many).

Join us at NeoCon, Oct. 4-6, inside the Merchandise Mart in Chicago to get an in-person view. The event serves as the world’s leading platform and most important event of the year for the commercial design industry since 1969. We’re so excited to showcase our on-trend commercial furniture designs.

Then next month, we head to BDNY, Nov. 14-15, at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City for another chance to join top commercial furniture designers in showcasing pieces to suit fall market trends.

Here are just a few design trends we believe you’ll notice at fall markets this year:


The ability to shift the components in an office to adapt to environmental concerns and/or how coworkers will interact and collaborate is still at the forefront of interior design. It applies to exteriors too, as bars and restaurants maintain their expanded serving areas created outdoors during restrictive health protocols.

Indoors, modern offices need to quickly adjust their use of space. Are employees continuing with remote work? Will in-person meetings return? The shifting needs of the professional world and its environment demands flexibility.

Modular furniture is ideal for designs that need to maintain fluid special concepts. Beaufurn modular furniture systems provide several industries with durable and attractive modular units that furnish small and large places, and areas where room space can fluctuate.

Privacy screens may still play a role in helping to create versatility in design as areas may need to be temporarily made more hygienic and insular. The need for privacy and solitude remains paramount in commercial spaces, especially since we’re all adjusting from more than a year in virtual seclusion. Our seating partitions and outdoor umbrella partitions may very well remain relevant through 2022.


Businesses and consumers are more socially conscious, and we know designers are as well. No doubt sustainability is embedded in your entire design strategy. While Beaufurn’s commitment to dynamic design is foremost, a promise of environmental responsibility isn’t far behind. We feel a raised awareness of natural resources and a healthy environment are always in style. Following LEED standards, we use water-based finishes, (FSC) Forest Stewardship Council-certified plywood components, and water-dispersed fast-setting adhesive for upholstery GREENGUARD-certified for Child and Schools for low-emitting interior building materials.

Beaufurn furniture is made in the USA. Domestic manufacturing can be more sustainable because it minimizes overproduction and requires less shipping.  You learn more about how we embrace a sustainable approach to design.

Sculptural & Minimalist

You can expect to see designs that strip down spaces to eliminate distractions and create a calming aesthetic. Sculptural pieces, like our Jewel sofa and Pouf Points,  add organic, shapely forms in welcoming neutral spaces. Minimalist designs, like our Stand table and Nuta chair in many sizes and colors, provide furnishings with simple lines but layers of purpose.

We think this year’s Best of NeoCon Award epitomizes the appeal of a sculptural and minimalist silhouette perfectly. In striking translucent blue, the sculptural award was conceived by award-winning design firm and NeoCon partner Maiarelli Studio.


Businesses will embrace the appeal of nostalgic furnishings as consumers still find comfort in retro styles that harken back to times of less strife.  Yet, vintage style fused with modern lines is especially appealing.

Our Oar Lounge Chair is a classic example of the magic that happens when vintage meets modern. This lounge chair, inspired by the first Adirondack chair of 1903, creates an attitude of nostalgic comfort.

You can expect to see natural materials such as wicker and ceramic combined into interior and exterior designs this fall. The combination provides contrast in texture that adds depth to entertainment spaces or in rooms for general commercial use. Our French Bistro Collection offers classic elegance seen in Parisian cafes from years gone by. Likewise, our natural Marble Table Tops are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and edges and make a lasting impression in any environment.

Playful & Cozy

Now that pandemic restrictions have lessened, people crave to be entertained and to have their spirits uplifted. This fall, expect to see playful designs that go beyond functionality to create a sense of joy.

Playful colors and shapes, like those seen in our collection of Poufs, make spaces come to life and create inviting, uplifting environments.

Cozy fabrics that are also made to last will help create comfortable environments that invite the user to stay, enjoy, feel safe. Beaufurn offers a comprehensive program of graded-in fabrics including wovens, vinyls, and more from the industry’s leading fabric suppliers. We also offer a broad range of commercial-grade seating and textiles specifically for the Hospitality, Senior Living, and Contract categories.

How To Clean Wood Veneer And Laminate Commercial Tabletops

Commercial furniture for restaurants, hotels, college lounges, and other industries in modern designs needs to be durable and customizable. While many designers choose Beaufurn marble and granite Urban Table Tops to furnish indoor and outdoor venues, our wood veneer and laminate commercial-use tables are also quite popular and durable.

While all these materials are durable for indoor and outdoor use, wood veneer and laminate tops are nonporous and tend to stain less easily. Also, wood veneer and laminate typically cost less than natural wood and stone tabletops.
