Inviting Outdoor Living Spaces
Spring is right around the corner and as the sun begins to peek through the clouds and the snow starts to melt away, there’s no better time to start preparing your outdoor spaces for entertaining. It can be challenging to match the style of the rest of your home in fabrics and finishes that can withstand the outdoor elements, but we’re here to help!
Two Barloy outdoor sofas bring modern lines and a sleek silhouette to the spacious backyard setting at the Memmer Homes Parade of Homes showcase. These sofas are upholstered in a UV-resistant and water-repellent fabric to withstand the rugged, natural environment. A teakwood frame is an excellent choice for outdoor furniture as it has naturally weather-resistant characteristics and does not require much upkeep.
The Boone dining table is surrounded by eight Rocco dinings chairs, which add a modern twist to traditional wishbone seating. All-weather wicker and grey-washed wood add natural texture to this sleek setting. The Thurber chairs match this style with a weathered grey teak frame and thick handwoven rope seating.
If your style is a little lighter and brighter, you’ll fall in love with this dreamy vintage farmhouse inspired patio. The porch-swing out front and a classic wicker sectional on the covered back patio are giving us hints of cozy southern charm. On the back patio, wainscoting adds depth to white walls and touches of exposed wood add warmth and rustic texture.
This comfortable yet functional patio is giving us a laid-back lake house feel. A covered, screened-in porch offers protection from the natural elements but you will still want to choose weather-resistant materials like synthetic wicker and specially treated wood to make sure your pieces stand the test of time. We love how this Trove On The Go designer layered textures throughout this space, from the distressed window frames resting on the mantle of the stacked stone fireplace to the shiplap accent wall.
Calming shades of blue and white create a cozy coastal vibe that is perfect for the summer. A soft, cloud-white sectional is center-stage in this relaxed patio setting. Unfortunately, the beautiful rays of sun that we love to soak up during the warmer seasons can be quite harmful to upholstered pieces. Exposure to UV rays will cause your fabrics to fade quickly, which is why we suggest choosing one of our UV-resistant performance fabrics for your outdoor upholstered pieces.
At Trove, we offer a wide selection of outdoor-friendly fabrics and finishes that have been specially crafted to resist wear and tear from the natural elements. It may seem early but the Spring months are the best time to start working on your outdoor entertaining spaces so you have plenty of time for pieces to arrive and you can enjoy them all summer long! Stop into Trove and we can help you create an inviting outdoor sanctuary so you can make the most of the long, sunny days ahead of us!
