Summer is officially here and that means you’ll be using your outdoor living space more & more (we hope!). Patio furniture can sometimes get a bit…mundane with the metal tables and chairs and umbrellas however. We think you should live your best life indoors AND out, starting with creative furniture design. Here are a few great ideas if you’re feeling change in the air this season.

  1. Bring your sofa outdoors. Okay, not REALLY, but get an outdoor sofa. It’s much more comfortable than metal or plastic chairs and will save room.

  2. Don’t forget the coffee…table that is. If you have an outdoor sofa (or even if you don’t go that route), an outdoor coffee table can complete the look – especially if you use a little creativity. Match the great outdoors with a tree stump coffee table or swing the other way to ultra-modern. Whichever you choose, tables are a must for a fabulous outdoor gathering.

  3. Organize your outdoor space with a cabinet or shelves. If you garden or work outdoors, you can neatly store your supplies in this space. If you don’t, you can use it for decorative purposes – think how lovely it would look to have a wall of flickering candles during a late night soiree!

  4. If you’re lounging outdoors – reading a good book or just taking a nap – you’ll definitely want to prop up your feet. Grab an ottoman made for the outdoors and make yourself comfy.

  5. If you really want a chair or two to complete your outdoor look, consider a rocking chair (especially if you have a porch!). There’s just something about gently rocking on the porch while engaged in long conversations that’s so perfectly summer.

  6. If you want to get really creative, have a hanging bed in your backyard. Nights spent sleeping under the stars are some of the best and, besides, how cool is a hanging bed?

Be creative this summer with your outdoor living spaces. There’s so much you can do besides patio furniture or just a table + chairs. And if you’re still looking for that one perfect piece, stop by one of our stores or drop by our website – you’re sure to find it. Try one of the ideas above or find another piece of furniture that’s typically thought of as “indoor” that you could use outside as well and before you know it, you’ll have the coolest backyard on the block!
