Here are a few outdoor furniture looks we love…

Great outdoor furniture ideas for summer

Rustic living

The rustic outdoor furniture trend is still going strong, and for good reason. It’s welcoming, comfortable and super-chic. This year, it’s all about wicker and wood furniture, and casual seating positioned to make the most of the season. This is the perfect setting for an outdoor dinner party or relaxed get-together with family and friends. Make it more inviting with extra cushions and throws – taken from the lounge or living room so you don’t have to buy more accessories. And add a final touch to the table with a vase of flowers picked from your own garden. It’s the little details that go a long way in making your outdoor space extra comfy.

Shades of grey

Still one of the most versatile colours when it comes to outdoor furniture and decor. Recover an old couch in a durable grey fabric, or buy a few statement pieces that’ll standout in your garden or on your patio. Because grey is such a timeless shade, these investments will be elegant and on-trend for many summers to come. We love the look of this simple, modern veranda decorated with comfy furniture like the couch and floor cushion, but offset with the industrial-style coffee table and book shelf. Don’t be afraid to play with styles, as long as you stick to the same colour theme or overall tone.

Take a seat

Save a bit of money this season and go for a dining set-up that can be used both inside in a modern dining room, as well as outdoors on a cool veranda. You’re looking for simple, minimalist designs in neutral shades. Also, the table and chairs must be light enough for you to move everything between areas as you see fit. This 8-seater wooden and white dining set from local outdoor furniture company, MON Exteriors, is a winner. It’s stylish enough to be used indoors and the furniture will withstand any weather conditions, so a spot on the patio is also an option. Multi-purpose furniture is extremely trendy right now, as a result of everyone’s finances taking a post-COVID-19 dip.

Coastal dreaming

Don’t we all dream of spending long summer days on a seaside patio? Though few of us are lucky enough to call that dream a reality. If you’re an inland dweller, but still want to bring a touch of coastal cool to your outdoor space, we have some ideas that might help. You can create the feeling of a seaside holiday with rattan and teak wood furniture, as well as decor accessories in calming ocean blue hues. Add a costal touch with azure tableware, throws and scatter cushions to keep your outdoor space feeling appropriately tropical. The image below is there for a bit of inspiration…

Courtyard cool

Another effect of the pandemic is that many of us have downscaled and downsized to help save on living costs. But, that’s no reason you have to miss out on elegant outdoor living. With a bit of creativity and a few DIY tips, you can transform a dull courtyard area into a relaxing and inviting summer space. We love the look of this cottage-chic courtyard, complete with loose pebble ‘flooring’ and romantic tea lights. The light white shade makes the space feel more open, and will help keep the temperature down during the day. And the furniture is durable and weather-friendly. This is how you make the most of a small outdoor space.

Modern monochrome

Combine organic features with industrial-style furniture to take your outdoor area to a modern level. This contemporary design trend is perfect for a sleek paved patio or decking area, or even a cool city balcony. If you’re sticking to strong monochrome shades, keep the furniture and accessories simple. Think about adding pattern or texture rather than more colour. Tropical plants and splashes of metallic will create an exciting backdrop and give the space an exotic feel. This modern monochrome patio ticks all the boxes but, if you’re new to the modern monochrome trend, take it one step at a time. Standout feature? Those edgy black dining chairs!
