Patio Furniture – Summer Trends

It’s not too late to spruce up your yard, deck or patio! There is still plenty of summer left to enjoy the outdoors, and with the right patio furniture you can enjoy it in style. Here are some of our favorite trends we have seen this season:

The Fire Pit

Fire pits are a great place to bond with friends and family and      well worth the money.  Whether you use your fire pit in the  summer or the winter, it’s always enjoyable. During the summer  nights it’s a great place to gather and roast marshmallows and  during the colder months it’s a warm, cozy place to hang and  chat with friends without being stuck indoors. You can browse a  variety of fire pit sets here.

Wicker

Is your style more traditional? If so, wicker furniture is what you want. Wicker has always given a traditional, homey feel to any outdoor living area, and you’ll love how durable and easy to clean it is. Wicker furniture is also super easy to dress up with stylish outdoor pillows, allowing you to add some color to your outdoor living space. It’s no surprise that wicker is such a popular trend.

Umbrellas

During the summer months it’s nice to relax outside under the sun, but as temperatures rise if you don’t have the luxury of natural shade from trees or a swimming pool to cool off in your outdoor living space may be too unbearably hot to enjoy. A patio umbrella is a perfect way to create a shaded, cool area in your yard, allowing you to enjoy the warm summer air comfortably. As for the summer nights, adding string lights to your patio umbrella adds the right amount of light for hanging outside in the evenings and highlights any outdoor decor perfectly.

Adding these suspended baskets to your outdoor living space provides a comfy spot for relaxing or curling up with a good book.
