This is accomplished by creating transitional living places that can be utilized year-round. More businesses are using transitional structures like pergolas, shade covers, fire pits and folding walls to expand living areas and decorating outdoor spaces just like indoor spaces like living and dining rooms.

Design – Functionality and Mobility is a Must

When it comes to design, 2019 is all about mobility and functionality. Outdoor furniture designers are creating pieces that can be easily moved. They are sectionals and modular pieces to provide freedom of layout and design to consumers. Add functionality with benches that include storage areas, daybeds and multipurpose pieces.

This is a trend that we started to see growth in 2019. Using a combination of materials in one furniture piece offers different textures and mixing materials provide a unique look and feel.

Sleek and matte textures like metal and wood are popular. Woven textures like that of rope, wicker and jute accents are becoming increasingly popular in furniture design.

Colors – Earthy with Bright Accents

A popular color scheme for 2019 includes earth tones (browns, greys, tans) with accent colors of blues and greens. Metallic colors like gold, silver and bronze are also popular. They reflect modern and industrial themes. Also, white is a popular color used for modern living.

Bright pops of color can be achieved with throw pillows and cushions. Or with a bright colored chair or accent table to add the eye-catching color.
