After an indoor season, it does not take much to lure us outdoors, basking underneath sunny skies or getting together with friends for conversation-filled, cool nights – particularly as the porch and patio are freshly dressed for entertainment. Drawing people out this year are vibrant bands of pattern and color, multiuse pieces that are sized for all environments, warming fire elements, and cooking spaces extending beyond the kitchen into a grill outside. With the most recent trends at Bareoutdoors, there isn’t any reason not to live easy outside.

Hanging Egg Chairs

Do not discount getting up front, as porches are back into play. Classical porch furniture like porch swings, Adirondack chairs, benches, and hanging egg chairs create solid curb appeal while providing your home a neighborly and distinctive feel.

Wicker Lounges

Wicker already has been updated with modern, clean shapes and neutral colors. The customized look has been taken one step further for 2015 with the presentation of wicker lounges accents within contrasting materials. Smooth frames in metal or wood highlight a wicker’s texture, whereas stone tabletops will bring an unexpected natural component.

Colourful Outdoor Decor

Designers now are trading 2014’s chevron for wide stripes and quatrefoil prints, emboldening rugs, toss pillows, hammocks, umbrellas, and additional textiles – especially in blue shades. Color themes will carry across your patio with vibrantly hued ottomans and planters interspersed in between foundation pieces.

Fire Pits

Warm, cozy flames are not just for cool months – or even only for the middle of your yard. Fire pit tables integrate the best of traditional pits within a dinner-appropriate, small size. Propane fire pit tables are available in dining, chat, and tiny accent-size styles, warmly by some well-placed torches around your patio.
