Commercial Outdoor Furniture Project – The Arizona Country Club

The Arizona Country Club's PatioThe View From The Arizona Country Club's Patio
The Arizona Country Club has a rich history among the Phoenix community. Its memberships are a prized possession and are passed down from generation to generation. The club is known for its superior service, its magnificent golf course and its casual and inviting, yet elegant atmosphere. This year the club decided to revamp their patio dining area and they wanted to reward their members with outdoor furniture that provided unparalleled comfort and was inline with their core values of uncompromising standards.

A Brief History Of A Storied Legacy

The Arizona Country Club has been a staple in Phoenix for over 100 years. It earned the distinction of being the first winter resort ever built in the Valley and over time it became Phoenix’s premier private club. The Arizona Country Club's Old FurnitureThe golf course is so highly regarded that from 1955 to 1973 it hosted the Phoenix Open and golf legends such as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer made the course famous. Today the club features a remarkable dining room, an impressive bar and a 4,800 square foot state of the art fitness center.

Improving Upon Greatness

The club has a beautiful patio that stretches across the north side of the clubhouse and faces the iconic Camelback Mountains. Intricate stonework is used throughout the floor, the pillars and on the big round fire pit that is centered on the patio. Their previous outdoor furniture was purchased five years ago and was big and bulky and made of pinewood. The maintenance over time grew excessive and the furniture was hard to move for both the guest and the staff. As well the older club members had a hard time of getting up out of the chairs and were not satisfied with the overall comfort.

From Today’s Patio

Once the club contacted Today’s Patio, one of our design specialists Tracy Snyder began working with John Neill the club’s Food and Beverage Director and Rita Lee their interior designer. John and Rita expressed to Tracy that they wanted a new look, that provided greater comfort and it was important that it was lighter and more mobile. Tracy recommended furniture from manufacture OW Lee given that it was made of wrought iron, which would keep it looking great for a long period of time. They decided on the ultra comfortable Monterra collection because it had a large selection of dining chairs and deep seating options.

In the end they purchased 115 dining chairs, 34 side chairs, 2 large oval dining tables, 33 round and square dining tables, 10 occasional tables, 6 club chairs and 6 large cuddle chairs.Arizona Country Club%27s Patio With New Deep Seating Furniture Since the patio makeover the club’s members have provided outstanding feedback and are completely satisfied with the superior comfort of the deep seating cuddle chairs. Today’s Patio would like to say thank you to The Arizona Country Club for the privilege to be able to serve such a storied and well-respected member of our community and we hope some day soon we will be invited out for a meal and a chance to enjoy the beautiful patio.

Discover New Traditions with Tropitone Patio Furniture

Tropitone Patio Furniture - Lakeside collectionWhen browsing Tropitone Patio Furniture, the first word that might come to mind is modern. The second word might be fun. By then you’ll be too absorbed in the variety of products and customization options to think of a third classification.

Tropitone has been setting industry standards, and trends, in both the commercial and retail patio furniture trade for over half a century. Among the first patio furniture manufacturers to make the conversion from wooden frames to strong, lightweight aluminum, Tropitone has remained at the forefront of crafting stylish, ergonomic furniture with a unique flair you just won’t find elsewhere.

The Spice of Life

If Tropitone had a middle name, it would be Variety. From standard strap chairs to luxurious outdoor sofas to the delightful (and sinfully comfortable) sling chairs, Tropitone has it all — and then some.

And that’s just the beginning.

The real allure of Tropitone is the customization options, and the ease with which you can preview them, in real time, with only a few clicks of the mouse. After selecting one of the hundreds of different furniture pieces from the Tropitone website, you’ll then get to choose from hundreds of different frame finishes, vinyls and fabrics. In most cases, your selections will be updated right before your eyes on the particular piece you chose. No more unhappy fabric revelations when the delivery truck pulls up!

Our previous post on Tropitone’s Color Center provides a detailed explanation of customization previews.

Because the sheer volume of products is somewhat overwhelming, Tropitone has broken their website down into helpful categories so you can browse by:

  • The type of area you want to furnish
  • A certain style you’re looking for
  • Pieces in a particular collection
  • General product types
  • And finally, coordinated groups

Whatever type of patio furniture you’re looking for — be it bar stools or dining tables — Tropitone offers it in impressive variety, each piece with its own sophisticated elegance.

Refined Comfort

Tropitone patio furniture is generously proportioned for maximum comfort. Chair backs are contoured to ergonomic perfection, seating surfaces are firm but giving. Arms, legs and frames curve gracefully, inviting to both the eye and the body — sit, relax, stay a while.

The company’s Relax-Plus cushions are among the most comfortable to be found among patio furniture of any era, fashioned in the same manner as premium indoor cushions but with materials made to withstand outdoor extremes. Did we mention there’s a custom cushion fabric selector, too?

Built To Last

Tropitone began as a commercial dealer, building furniture products to withstand heavy use and abuse, as well as to resist perpetual exposure to elements. These high-quality standards continue to be employed in the construction of retail pieces.

As mentioned above, cushions are designed to withstand the elements inside and out. Vinyls and acrylics are top of the line, providing strength while inhibiting wear and UV fading.

Frames are constructed of aluminum or cast aluminum, which is not only impervious to rust, but also mold, insects and other such ailments that plagued wooden frames. The powder coating finish is tougher than conventional paints, resistant to discoloration, scratching or chipping — and allows for a wide range of textures. Customizable, of course!

Convenient, Too!

With a few exceptions, Tropitone patio furniture requires little maintenance beyond wiping or spraying off with soapy water. Models that allow for it are designed to be stackable. With rust-proof aluminum, chip- and scratch-resistant powder coating, and fabrics with built-in UV protection, all you need to do with your Tropitone furniture is enjoy it.

If you’re looking for cutting-edge, high-quality patio furniture, try Tropitone. Find out what 50-plus years of experience building fashionable comfort can do for you and your guests!
