Seating that does double duty extends the use of an outdoor space, too. Tables and benches with built-in storage, ottomans that serve as both casual seats and side tables, and dining sets that transition to conversation sets let you reconfigure your arrangements to perfectly suit each moment.
Outdoor daybeds provide an ideal place to kickback and relax whether it be on the porch or by the pool. A daybed is the perfect place to nap, read, sunbathe, and just enjoy the outdoors. Add some colorful throw pillows to cozy it up and an umbrella to provide some shade. Many daybeds come with a built-in shade structure making it a superb spot to lounge all season long.
Don't discount getting up front – porches are back in play. Classic porch furniture such as Adirondack chairs, porch swings, and benches create strong curb appeal while giving your house a distinctive and neighborly presence.
Offset traditional porch furniture with contemporary outdoor lights that let you sit and swing for longer.
This year's outdoor fabrics have something for everyone from bright, bold colors to warm, subdued hues. Look for quatrefoil prints and wide stripes, emboldening toss pillows, rugs, umbrellas, and more. Carry color themes across the patio with planters and ottomans interspersed between foundation pieces.
Cozy flames aren't just for cold months – or even just for the center of the yard. Fire pit tables incorporate the best of traditional pits in a small, dinner-appropriate size. Propane fire pit tables come in chat, dining, and even small accent-size styles, warmly augmented by well-placed torches around the patio.
