As entertaining outdoors grow in popularity each year, so too do the trends associated with creating that perfect outdoor space for your family and guests. Contemporary and modern garden furniture as a result has evolved to suit any exterior design, personal lifestyle and more importantly, capturing that sleek, calm and collected ambience you have in mind.
Below we’ve outlined emerging trends, direct from Europe, in the garden furniture segment that you may want to consider before committing to a plan or purchase.
Customized Furniture Fixtures
Nothing says luxurious living more than a customized outdoor area, built to the specifics of your home’s architecture and the dedicated space you have to facilitate the outdoor lifestyle you are wanting to achieve. As one of the more favoured trends of twenty fifteen, this will continue to grow throughout twenty sixteen and for many years to come as it not only creates the perfect contemporary space, but also adds a significant amount of value to your home.
Blurring the lines between your indoor and outdoor area will continue to be the biggest emerging trend for this year. Although not a new concept, the seamless flow is something that encapsulates luxury in its entirety, providing a natural flow from one area into the next. Ensure you’re thinking about how your outdoor space will complement the overall architecture and how this will achieve the consistent progression between the two designated areas.
Mixed Material Design
Garden furniture design in twenty sixteen will continue to see a fusion of materials and form to create the desired contemporary space. Integration is key and mixed material garden furniture designs will enable the contrast to provide a dynamic fusion between the indoors and outdoors.
Popular garden furniture combinations include:
- Wood and Resin
- Wood and Iron
- Stainless Steel and Teak
- Wicker and Teak
