It’s time to move the party outside. Spring is here and the patio and deck take center stage. Is yours ready for their close-up?
Art’s Backyard is stocked full of this season’s latest looks for decking out your deck and polishing up your patio. Take a look at these trends in outdoor living:
The Resort Look
Your backyard easily turns into an island oasis … even if you’re hundreds of miles inland. All it takes is sumptuous furnishings like this wicker seating with deep cushions. Our Marrakesh Collection is resort living at its best. Its plush, padded cushions turn an evening gathering into a summer soiree. Mai Tai anyone? The pieces are covered in Geobella and Sunbrella fabrics for maximum fade, mildew, and moisture repellency. In the winter, move this set indoors. It’s elegant enough for a family room, sunroom or enclosed porch.
Outdoor seating should be comfortable, and motion seating lets you rock while you relax. Our Savannah Collection features deep-cushioned gliders and spring lounge chairs. Brimming with Southern charm, the set oozes grace and begs for a glass of sweet tea. But this is no wilting wallflower; the full-aluminum construction and solid, hand-cast components provide quality and dependability that’s very hospitable.
Transitional outdoor furniture combines the clean, simple lines of contemporary with the comfort and style of traditional. The result is a timeless look that never goes out of style. Transitional pieces are a smart investment as they effortlessly mix with your existing pieces. You can quickly update your look by swapping out pillows, cushions and accessories. Our Lattice Collection is a wonderful transitional offering. Its graceful curves are elegant in a traditional style, and its colors and materials are very contemporary. The natural slate inlaid table surfaces marry the two styles together for an ultimate outdoor room.
Stackable Patio Chairs
A few extra drop-in guests don’t need to send you scrambling for the folding chairs you keep in your trunk for your son’s soccer game. These great stackable patio chairs are a much nicer option. A far cry from the plastic white or green lawn chairs that were popular years ago, today’s outdoor stackables are crafted from durable, high-quality materials like rust-free aluminum and resin weave. Our Villa Collection is ideal for outdoor entertaining. Gorgeous, you’d never guess they’re also portable and convenient. When not in use, the chairs stack and stow with ease.
Touches of Turquoise
Reminiscent of cool Caribbean water, turquoise is one of the hottest colors in home design this summer. Use a splash of the jewel-tone blue with pillows to update your existing seating. Grab a turquoise candle holder or bowl and accessorize your outdoor tables. Or better yet, bring home our three-piece Ocean Marina Mosaic Bistro Set to dress up to your garden, deck or patio. The tabletop and chairs are embellished with hand-laid mosaic tiles in beautiful shades of blue, creating a tranquil setting for a Sunday morning latte with the newspaper.
