Stay up to date with these five important outdoor living trends, from lifestyle-driven design to covetable fabrics.
Trend #1: The Outdoor Room
Yes, your home has room to grow. How can homeowners gain a spacious addition without spending a penny on construction? By embracing outdoor space as an extension of indoor square footage. Comfort, function and personality. These three elements, when combined, create exceptional interior design. Take these same design tenants outdoors, and watch the rest fall into place. Create your own indoor-outdoor haven with upholstered seating, mix-and-match outdoor furniture, and plenty of design-driven outdoor accessories.
Trend #2: Everyday Luxury
It’s been said that time is life’s only true luxury. Current outdoor trends underscore this ‘buy-less, enjoy-more’ mentality, as more households opt for casual collections that blend modern technology with timeless styling. High-quality furniture is a wise investment that is both sustainable and stress-free. Look for a resin wicker collection designed to maximize comfort, with enveloping proportions and cloudlike cushions.
Trend #3: Inspired by Travel
Jetsetters take note––one of 2020’s hottest outdoor trends is influenced by travel. With travel at a halt, get inspired to make your backyard an oasis to transport you to a different destination. Outdoor furnishings can make any weekend at home or after-dinner drink feel like an exciting escape. Dreaming of an island getaway? Try something eclectic, like a wicker egg chair. Or maybe you prefer a European jaunt abroad? Look for something elegant and bistro-style seating.
Trend #4: Outdoor Accessories Upgrade
Ready to take your outdoor decor to the next level? Add unique outdoor accents like poufs, lanterns, dishware, occasional seating and performance pillows into the mix. Illuminate your space with a chandelier, pendant, or lamp. Look into pieces made with outdoor-rated materials like resin wicker, marble and performance fabrics, so rest assured that they are safe for outdoor use.
Trend #5: World of Wellness
Organic materials like rattan and wicker add to the tactile experience of an outdoor retreat, so select pieces with a natural aesthetic to make it feel like a relaxing spa resort. Look for laid-back pieces that might just help you strengthen your mind-body connection!
