It’s time to think about your sunroom and patio furniture, as Northern Utah’s beautiful weather season moves into full swing.
The demand for a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living has called forth a new hybrid interior design style that blends the two seamlessly. Today, outdoor furniture has the same level of design integrity as fine indoor furnishings.
Likewise, indoor furnishings and accessories have taken on a light and easygoing style befitting of a warm, summer evening.
Geometric and Transitional Indoor / Outdoor Furnishings
This year sees the return of the cube, as geometric and transitional furnishings take over both outdoor and indoor living spaces.
Imagine barstools that store underneath the bar when not in use, or table sets that, when pushed together, form a cube-shaped game table. Drum tables open out to become adorable kid-sized picnic seating. No longer is patio furniture an uncomfortable uni-tasker, relegated to dusty corners of the yard. Today, comfort and flexibility are de rigueur.
The most striking features of these fine furnishings are exceptional quality, flexibility and a fresh, fun sense of design.
Teak Dining Sets and Outdoor Furniture
Another fresh patio furniture style leverages the natural beauty and style of teak.
Dining sets, sectional seating and daybeds work as beautifully inside as they do on the patio or in the sunroom. Choose solid color, solution-died, weather-ready fabric for cushions and upholstery. White is the timeless and striking cushion color choice of many interior design professionals this year.
Outdoor dining sets are virtually indistinguishable from indoor furniture and, in fact, you could choose to use them in either location. Look for parson-style tables with teak slats on metal frames. Benches in a variety of lengths provide flexible, multipurpose patio seating that can also be used as extra table surfaces.
Rattan and Wicker Furniture Grows Up
Wicker patio furniture – and, to an extent, even rattan – has gotten a bad rap over the years. But, in all fairness, rattan and wicker furniture has finally taken on a more grown-up, dignified style.
Bamboo and other sustainable materials make these choices environmentally friendly. But these materials also provide a substantial feel and elegant look. Less rustic and fragile, many of today’s rattan styles gravitate toward an Asian flare that recalls a moonlit beach in Bali.
Another popular updated patio furniture style pays homage to mid-century modern wicker hoop and basket chair styles, as well as Paul Frankl rattan furniture.
