Fun and Fresh Patio Furniture Ideas

The days are starting to get shorter, so fall must be on its way. But there’s still plenty of warm weather to enjoy! And when the temperature cools, that’s even more of a reason to enjoy the refreshing breeze from the comfort of your patio. In other words, it’s outdoor dining and lounging season, folks! Today we round up a collection of patio furniture finds that can add some modern fun to your outdoor space. With three distinct styles represented, you’ll love the patio furniture ideas below. Enjoy!

Sleek and Modern

There’s an outdoor aesthetic that we at Decoist can’t seem to get enough of: sleek and modern! Clean lines, metal frames and plenty of neutral tones (such as grey) dominate this look, and the image below featuring the Dune collection from Crate & Barrel is a fitting example:

Room & Board’s Aruba Chairs bring a dose of metal mesh to the patio, and they pair beautifully with a slatted wood table. Side note: slats are another popular sleek and modern patio furniture feature!

Today’s modern patio is often accompanied by equally modern landscaping. The horsetail reeds on the patio below set a contemporary tone, and the Palm Sofa from Room & Board is the perfect weather-proof centerpiece:

Pops of Color

There’s nothing like a patio with an unexpected pop of color! Whether this color comes in the form of a large furnishing or a small end table, the result is vibrant and wonderfully surprising. These Maya Swivel Chairs from Room & Board take poolside lounging to a radiant level:

The Moroccan 5-Piece Sectional with Sunbrella Cushions from Crate & Barrel is like a ray of sunshine for your patio! Plus, the durable fabric is mildew- and UV-resistant.

Yellow is fetching on non-sofa seating as well, as shown by these Crest Swivel Chairs from Room & Board. And in case you’re wondering, yes, that’s super hardy Sunbrella acrylic fabric!

Even something as small as a compact side table can make a colorful impact! Say hello to the Tulum Side Table from CB2, a piece inspired by the form of ancient Mayan drums. PVC cords in mint, black, red and orange make a colorful handwoven statement over a powdercoated steel tube frame:

Cool and Crisp

We end today’s post with a trio of outdoor furnishings that celebrate the power of cool, crisp tones such as white. They’re especially enticing when paired with rich wooden hues! These Sophia Silver Dining Chairs from CB2 sure do have a bright sheen. They’re the perfect complement to the dark wooden table and seating in the next featured image:

Last but not least, we shine the spotlight on West Elm’s Tillary Outdoor Sofa, which pairs a solid wood frame with comfy weather-resistant cushions for a chic modern seating option for your beautifully appointed patio. Note the contrast between the dark frame and the light upholstery:
