Hi there! The furniture is all vintage fiberglass. We gave it a fresh look by adding new cushions. Best of luck on your search!

The cushions were custom made in Savannah, GA. We purchased and provided the fabric to a local seamstress in our area. The navy blue fabric with the white piping is from Sunbrella. The yellow pillow fabric is by Trina Turk and sold through Schumacher (to the trade). You can purchase the fabric through us or find a local designer / retailer in your area. Try searching online as well. Good luck!

Can you explain how you did this incredible floor color? I am an artist and wonder if there is a way I can do the concrete myself, but suspect this is a job for a pro. If you can share the name/number/brand of the paint we would so appreciate it!

Are the screens removable? Or are the screens roll down? - We have a porch we would like to screen in and are having discussions on how it could be done. The porch has an existing railing and posts to the covered roof line, similar to your photo. Thank you.

There are screens that roll down in a track and secure to the floor to create a bug-free porch. In this instance, they would mount inside the railings, so some sort of minimal additional structure would need to be created to hold the track. We used a system like this in a lake house a number of years ago. I forget the company name, but I'm sure you can google "retractable porch screening" or something like that.

Hi. Yes. it is 1960s vintage spun fiberglass outdoor furniture. We had new cushions made using Sunbrella fabric. The iron urns are most likely from the 1920s.

Thank you. I have a bistro set and I wanted to know more about it. Fiberglass! That's why it's so lightweight.

Is there a specific type of wallboard needed for screened porches? - I have a bead board vaulted ceiling. We want to use wallboard above the door. I am not sure if there is a certain type of wallboard that will look smooth so it can be painted but also stand up to New England weather.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Sweet Georgia Summer Beach Home
The team had to maximize the footprint of the house almost to the edge of the small site to gain more square footage. Since there wasn't a ton of room for landscaping, they added in a sizable screened front porch — a must in mosquito-laden Georgia.Outdoor furniture: vintage, reupholstered with Sunbrella and Trina Turk for Schumacher fabric
Becky Harris added this to Enliven Your Porch With Color
Turn your hues up a notch or two. Brilliant blue and cheery pops of yellow turn up the volume on the usual coastal palette for this Tybee Island, Georgia, screened-in porch.See the rest of this home
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Cast a Spell With Outdoor Lights
A simple white fixture blends beautifully with white decor. If your shutters and front door are black, a black lantern can coordinate nicely.
Laura Gaskill added this to What's Your Summer Home Style?
The front porch sets the tone with its bright, cheerful yellow and blue palette and painted floors.
With large screens designed to keep out pesky bugs, this airy front porch in a small Georgia beach house easily works as extra living space. The 1960s fiberglass furniture, updated with colorful pillows, is ideal for lounging, and a ceiling fan keeps the breeze moving. Note the clever use of color, from the bright yellow cushions to the pale blue concrete floor and mellow green clapboard siding.
