Aren’t you glad outdoor furnishings no longer mean rusted tables and flimsy folding chairs? Today’s sophisticated homeowners are embracing a rich medley of design trends to make their exterior living areas more fashionable and functional. Consider stylistic prospects for your property that will survive the elements while showcasing character and comfort.
Enticing Chat Group
To encourage socializing, create a cozy chat grouping
. The conversation area was 2015’s fastest growing outdoor furniture segment, outshining the long-prized dining set. That chill-out zone is holding strong in 2016. Flexibility accounts for some of this trend’s allure. Models that adapt to different functions and enlarge sitting capacity are growing in popularity. Comfy deep-seating teak furniture
is a crowd-pleasing favorite. Extra-thick cushions in durable Sunbrella fabric inspire leisurely lounging. Choose a multi-piece Classic Teak sectional, or build your own extended set to hold more people. Group or separate modular sections like love seats, chairs, and ottomans. Add coffee and end tables to accommodate beverages, appetizers, or casual meals. Walls don’t define outdoor rooms, but furniture placement can. So form custom configurations to fit your spaces and needs. Positioning chairs and side tables around a warm fire pit can make your outside zone more versatile by inviting use during cooler months.
Cleverly Blurred Lines
Furniture resembling the quality of fine indoor pieces has taken its permanent place outdoors to spread luxurious residential living areas beyond structural boundaries. Creating an easy flow between inside and outside spaces is fundamental. Just imagine that you’re expanding your interior dining and entertaining spots out onto your patio, deck, or garden for large parties. In the past, design-conscious consumers had to choose stylish or comfortable furniture. But today’s deluxe teak table sets
excel at both. Classic Teak’s shape choices include rectangular, oval, round, square, and natural edge in various sizes with seating for parties of four to 12. Extendable tables with optional extra chairs will allow you to invite even more guests. For extra pampering, soften firm chairs with our colorful patio cushions
. Genuine teak pieces exude a back-to-nature ambience while blending with your bountiful exterior environment organically. Add extra decorator touches outdoors that echo your interior design so diners will enjoy the familiar feeling of your home encompassing the natural beauty beyond its doors.
Intriguing Mixed Materials
For a truly custom appearance, mix various materials and styles in interesting combinations instead of matching everything. Give your imagination free reign to go wild. Intermingle elegant teak with old-world stone, decorative wirework, woven wicker, sleek metals (such as aluminum, iron, stainless steel, or copper), and permeable textiles. Arrange contrasting looks, textures, and colors in an exclusive yet cohesive juxtaposition. That will transform your deck or patio into an eclectic yet sophisticated masterpiece. Start planning now to be ready for the upcoming entertaining season.
Confused about color theory? Consider these diverse applications. For a natural flow from indoors to outside, repeat your interior’s design schemes and shades with complementary choices in external areas. Or select tones that harmonize with your home’s exterior for seamless visual blending. Introduce pops of color to revamp and brighten any drab-looking outdoor space instantly. Consider using new hues to create original impressions. Natural neutrals
are the most enduring external base tints. Versatility makes sand, weathered wood, charcoal, mocha, and cream good choices for every climate. Magnificent metallic finishes, especially light and soft grays, are driving contemporary styles. Traditional looks lean toward earth tones including beiges, tans, and browns. Your outdoor area is synonymous with fun. Customize any portion easily by adding accents in cheerful colors or designer patterns. Watery blues, aquamarines, turquoises, teals, and emeralds feel clean and welcoming. For nautical or preppy appeal, pair dark blues with reds, yellows, or whites. Coral exudes freshness. As Tuscan-inspired shades like deep tomato, dark eggplant, olive green, and golden sunflower along with busy patterns slip out of fashion in 2016, outdoor designers
recommend simpler approaches. Try interspersing berry and citrus colors among natural greenery to add texture and visual interest. Boldly vivid neon colors like hot pinks, yellows, and oranges create playful looks. Adding attractive finishing touches outside is easy. Pretend that you’re redecorating your living room. Choose from custom Sunbrella cushions in a lavish array of colors and patterns
. Weather-resistant, chemical-resistant, and fade-resistant fabric will enhance your outdoor furniture’s grandeur and comfort for years of beauty and enjoyment.
