Trends 2021: Outdoor Living

Summer may be coming to an end, but Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. Fewer bugs. Lower humidity. Cooler temps. Now is the perfect time to create a relaxed and refined outdoor space and elegantly extend the summer season in your backyard. Here’s what you need to get started.

Take a Seat

Outdoor living starts with outdoor seating. Create a unique backyard oasis with a mix of patio and outdoor furniture that includes comfortable chairs, loveseats and spacious sofas to optimize your seating needs and lifestyle. 

DID YOU KNOW? Rattan and Wicker are incredibly versatile and popular, but they are not the same thing. Rattan is a material that can be woven, and wicker is a style and method of weaving. But mention wicker and it conjures up images of Grandma’s dusty white painted furniture. No more. For a contemporary take on a classic material with super longevity, this resilient, all-weather wicker pattern sofa checks off all the boxes.

Going woodsy classic? Then go Adirondack. These chairs were originally called the Westport Chair and designed by Thomas Lee back in 1903. Lee and his family were vacationing in Westport, New York, near Lake Champlain and he was inspired to create a simple chair for his family to sit together outdoors. A style that has endured for well over a century, the Adirondack chair has been updated but is still as classic and comfortable as it’s ever been. Tight on space? Then consider these colorful, classic folding Adirondack chairs for both indoor and outdoor use.  


You can’t have outdoor living without tables to put food and drink on. These colorful indoor/outdoor, all-weather Adirondack side tables are the perfect companion to your Adirondack chairs. Or this outdoor coffee table in a faux rattan wicker pattern that pairs perfectly with this loveseat. Dining al fresco?  Then look no further than this all-weather dining table

Patio Heaters

Fire table, fire pit, fireplace or portable heaters.  There’s a lot to consider for those who want to play with fire. For the ultimate in convenience for roasting s’mores to cozying up on a cool autumn evening, this portable wood burning fire pit is the perfect solution. Need more heat? Then warm up to this modern, pyramid-shaped portable patio heater. 

Sound Design

Some outdoor speakers look like rocks and some look like…well, speakers.  Whichever you choose, make sure they are made for the outdoors to provide years of excellent sound.

Light Up The Night

Don’t forget some illuminating outdoor lighting. Path lighting. Landscape lighting. Free-standing solar powered globes or overhead string lighting all provide a beautiful and festive glow.
