No summer is complete without having a good time in our home’s outdoor living spaces. We are continuing to share our summer vibes and design ideas so you too can enjoy your outdoor living space this summer.
The right furniture is essential for functional and comfortable outdoor living spaces. Every year our DKORista’s find new styles, colors, and fabrics in modern and contemporary furnishings that we crush over. In addition to the great style we are also finding better quality materials that allow collections to be more durable and long lasting options for our interior design clients.
Just like shopping for indoor furnishings, you should consider the room setting, quality, and design aesthetics while shopping for outdoor furniture.
What is the room setting, or in this case the outdoor weather conditions where you live? Knowing how durable your furniture needs to be or considering if you need to bring it inside during strong weather conditions will help you determine the type of material your furniture needs to be made of. Outdoor furniture pieces can be composed of a variety of materials like metal, wicker, wood, plastic, etc. Look for weather resistant materials that can stand-up against your outdoor living spaces elements.
Purchase long lasting high quality pieces. Purchasing less expensive options becomes very pricey over time when you find yourself replacing ripped umbrellas or rotted seats every summer. Fabrics used on outdoor furniture needs to be weather resistant. The best fabrics are solution dyed acrylics which can also be purchased by the yard if you prefer to reupholster cushions as needed.
