Outdoor Is IN!

In the Palm Desert and Palm Springs area, the feeling of summer is in the air. Interior design styles this summer highly influence outdoor living and outdoor furnishings. Popular pieces such as lounges, chaises, armchairs as well as dining tables and lounge chairs are striving to be more unique in their use of materials and sense of style.

This year in outdoors interior design all things outdoor are taking on a whole new look, texture and shape. From traditional to contemporary all types of styles are emphasizing “style” as the operative word. Materials in outdoor furniture range from teak craftsmanship to woven resin. Meanwhile, outdoor living moves beyond the expected to present unique pieces to enjoy outside.

A very popular style is the woven resign fiber look in a dark chocolate finish. Many companies such as Brown Jordan and Dedon are manufacturing beautiful and durable pieces in their collections from dining sets to lounge furniture.

Outdoor fabrics have also made huge strides in their look and feel. Companies like Kravet fabrics with their extensive “Kravet Soleil” line offer everything from plush chenilles to tailored prints, all perfectly water resistant and sun fast for the rigors of summer and the intense light associated with the season. Consumer desire to bring the indoors outdoors has prompted the availability of outdoor chenille. Companies such as Chella offer a plethora of comfy outdoor chenille in an endless variety of colors and weaves.

Outdoor furniture is not your average aluminum and vinyl straps anymore! Materials such as woven resin, mesh, teak frames with upholstered seats, and even molded acrylic are catching the eyes of many savvy consumers this spring.
