Outdoor furniture

Last week, we began this two-part blog series to discuss outdoor design trends for 2019. If you’re renovating your backyard space between now and spring, read on to continue learning about this year’s hottest ideas and looks.

Modular sofas. In the past, selecting outdoor furniture always seemed to present one particular challenge: What type of seating configuration did you want? Whatever you chose was a semi-permanent commitment.

Luckily, designers have caught on to the idea of modular seating options. These versatile furniture sets can be rearranged as needed, allowing you to customize a space depending upon your changing needs.

Powder-coated aluminum. If you do need furniture that can be shifted frequently, the powder-coated aluminum trend might excite you. The lightweight material makes for outdoor furniture that is easy to move, and it tends to be more sleek and fits better into smaller spaces. Since powder-coated aluminum is durable and easy to clean, it’s also a great design choice for those who don’t want to spend a lot of time on upkeep.

New trends in outdoor fabrics. Gone are the days of boring outdoor upholstery! Continuing the trend of outdoor spaces that mimic indoor styles, designers have introduced a wider variety of customizable outdoor fabrics. Canvases are still durable and fast-drying, but also updated with softer elements for a sense of movement. We’re even seeing sheers and new outdoor velvets, so you can experiment with textures not traditionally used outside.

Classic neutral hues. As you update your outdoor space, you might notice this this year’s designs incorporate a variety of timeless neutral colors. That’s great news if you’re investing in new furniture, because you can count on these styles to continue their relevance for years in the future. You can easily update your decor with new throw pillows and accessories from time to time, without breaking the bank.
