Defining Conversation Sets

The arrival of spring (hopefully) means you’ll be spending more time relaxing outside, and when you do will you be using a “conversation set” or “patio furniture?” Is there a difference, and if so – does it matter? At first blush, this sounds like someone who’s trying to class up something that doesn’t really benefit from the effort, like calling McDonald’s a “restaurant.” We’re not fooled! But, there <em>is</em> a slight difference between a <a title="Conversation Sets" href="http://www.atgstores.com/conversation-sets_915.html" target="_blank">conversation set</a> and patio furniture, and at the very least it may help you better refine your search and help you save time when you’re in the market for such things – as well as give you some snappy trivia for your next backyard barbecue. Basically, <a title="Patio Furniture" href="http://www.atgstores.com/patio-furniture_17171.html" target="_blank">patio furniture</a> is the catchall phrase that describes most any kind of outdoor furniture, whereas conversation sets are anchored by comfortable seating and often accompanied by a coffee table and/or end tables.

After all, people never have conversations when they're sitting around on bar stools ... Even so, it seems a stretch to belabor such a fine point. If it all amounts to furniture that you put outside then who cares what it’s called, right? Right – except it <em>does</em> kind of have a nice ring to it. Conversation sets sound like they <em>might</em> be nicer than patio furniture. We do this all the time! It’s not a trashcan – it’s a <em>receptacle</em>. And, it’s definitely not a porch – it’s a <em>veranda</em>. So, why not a conversation set? <a href="http://www.atgstores.com/" target="_blank">ATGStores.com</a> invites you to share your favorite nicknames for everyday items, and hopes you get to enjoy a lot of outdoor relaxation this spring.
