It’s time to get those patios and porches into shape for springtime, and now is such a good time because almost every place I like to shop is having sales on their outdoor items right now (OKL- 20% off, PB- up to 40% off, CB2- up to 20% off, World Market- up to 20% off plus free shipping, Pier 1- 25% off, WS Home – 20% off).
I rounded up some of my current favorites from all sorts of sources and price points!
Some tips for outdoor furniture purchasing:
This set has the same vibes as the Janus one I love, and I was feelin’ the pretty pink color (that print pillow reverses to pink and white stripes- squuueeeee) so I made a little vignette for fun :)
Like this one http://www.elementsofstyleblog.com/2019/04/an-outdoor-planter-round-up.html
I just bought the miles reds set from Ballard. It has drawers for the cushions. I’m obsessed!
I’m looking for a fire table for my deck. I like the look of the concrete ones from RH, but I hear concrete cracks in the winter. Any recs?
Great selection of outdoor furniture. I love your tip to mix it up – how fun! I really want to buy new outdoor furniture, however, I’m stuck on the colour. What colours would you say best match an outdoor setting? I know I don’t want to go for white, I’m too scared of stains that can’t go away. Carolina at Ironmongery Experts.
That Celerie Kimble Crespi table is amazing! I saw it in House Beautiful this month and was smitten immediately!
Thanks so much Erin, always look forward to your style guides, even saving up to shop from them :)
Question: do you find the metal to be better/sturdier long term than the rattan, if permanently outdoors?
(We live in south Florida so it would be used year round, don’t know if that makes a difference.)
Thanks for dedicating your time to these projects, have your new book and can’t wait to dig in!
I do, but that is in the north. In the south you might fare better- although the humidity would probably affect the rattan too if natural. Most of these will be a plastic/resin rattan or wicker which would do great no matter what the weather though!
