As summer approaches ever nearer, we are excited at the prospect of spending more quality time in the fresh air and sunshine. Being able to enjoy the company of friends and family al fresco is one of the most wonderful benefits of warm summer weather. Because of this, the outdoor living space has become an integral part of the home and an extension of interior style. Outdoor living should be both comfortable and stylish, reflecting a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living. Through good design and an eye for style, the best of both worlds can come together in a way that won’t compromise comfort or elegance. By utilizing design resources and adding a personal touch through fabric and trim selection, you can create a stunning custom outdoor space that reflects your personal style. Incorporating a customized palette of color, pattern and texture gives you the ability to bring life into any outdoor space, creating a unique design that’s truly your own. When it comes to custom outdoor seating, the possibilities are endless. Here are just a few of our favorite ways to customize an outdoor space to reflect your personal style.
Whether the focus is on color, texture or pattern, choose a fabric combination that complements the frame. For example, the bold woven designs featured in Aviano pair well with clean patterns and simple textures, with a focus on a muted sand coloration. Subdued tones aid in the blending of various patterns and textures, like animal prints, geometrics, and organic weaves.
Like the setting summer sun, vivid hues of tangerine and fiery orange add heat to the night. When paired with crisp ivory, this impactful color becomes even more captivating, allowing for the mixture of bold patterns and subtle details. The Armless Curved Sofa from Ocean Club Pacifica elegantly features a unique curving scatterback design, begging for a playfully arranged combination of pillows in various patterns and shades of orange.
Casual and elegant, Blue Olive’s cool tonality incorporates five distinct hues into each strand of the herringbone weave design. This complex neutral palette, in combination with clean contemporary lines, creates an ideal environment for pattern and texture to take center stage. Various patterns and textures featured in a muted coloration allow for harmonious blending, creating an unspoken sophistication with cohesive and relaxed subtlety.
Create an outdoor oasis with an island-inspired assortment of fabrics and trims to complement darker finishes. The natural woven wicker look of Island Estate Lanai creates a complex elegance through pattern and texture, making it ideal for an equally bold fabric selection. Using a strong, yet serene shade of blue with the boldness of the ocean, the Dazzling Blue and crisp white palette creates a perfectly relaxed style for any outdoor space. A sophisticated and classic color combination, blue and white allow for larger, more playful patterns.
