Are you shopping for new outdoor furniture? No matter what your needs may be regarding functionality, there are more styles available than ever before. You’ll quickly discover there is a style of outdoor patio furniture for everyone, from steel to rattan and everything in between. 

If your affinity is for the outdoors, there is a style of furniture available as unique as your surroundings. Whether yours is a lush courtyard of English ivy and floribunda, a casual backyard barbecue pit or a rooftop looking out over a cityscape, your space should sizzle. Here are some of the hottest trends in outdoor furniture to help you design the perfect backyard living landscape:

Blurring the Lines
Often, one would be hard pressed to distinguish between what is designed and built to be outdoor furniture and what has classically been found inside. Indeed, the outdoors has become a beloved extension of the home and living space. With such a vast array of styles, it is not difficult to echo the design of your interior seamlessly so there is a cohesive feel as you and your guests exit the home and enter the opulent outdoors.

Typically, style is preeminent to comfort; today’s selections of exterior furniture boast both qualities. As long as the seating supplies ample comfort, guests will want to stay and let the evening linger on lazily. In fabric options, a plethora of tones and textures that tantalize are available to outfit your outdoor cushions. Coordinating pillows are a must. Go ahead- accessorize and accent with outdoor table runners, chargers for the table and rugs, as well. Whether your look is urban elegance, mostly Mediterranean, or the mercury has risen and you enjoy dazzling dessert accents, there is comfort available that will never cause you to compromise style.

Inviting the Indoors Out
The most obvious current trend in furnishing the patio and premises is designing the outdoor space to feel as though it is actually an indoor space. Landscape and patio furniture designers have heard the consumer's cry and responded by offering everything from waterproof chandeliers and table lamps to outdoor armoires, coffee tables and ottomans for even more interior influence.

Captivating curves
Whether delicate or pronounced, curves are a common component seen gracing the runway of today’s trendy and popular patios. From scrolled iron sofa arms to splayed legs on a classically styled chair to circular designs in rugs and pillows, curves are seen in every aspect of fancy outdoor furnishings. This is likely because of the sheer number of curves seen in the nature that surrounds a patio space. Also, curves are pleasing to the eye and just naturally an appealing, somewhat sophisticated aspect of downright dreamy design.

In order to find the furnishings to fit a well-designed patio space, designers and homeowners need not look far. In fact, appealing and stylish patio furniture can be found and purchased locally, right in your own backyard!
