Each passing year brings with it an influx of novel concepts. Ever since the outbreak, homeowners have been concentrating on transforming their backyards into a variety of other uses, including a home office, a place to staycation, and a secure location for holding holiday dinners and other parties.
There is a trend that, regardless of your tastes and preferences, will help you make the most of your outdoor living space and give it a more personal touch. It doesn’t matter if you want to spruce up your yard by installing a new deck, choose a trendy style such as Greek or terra cotta, or go for a design that prioritises sustainability; there is a trend that caters to every style and outdoor necessity.
Keeping up with what’s trendy can be a fun and gratifying activity, especially given the current emphasis on outdoor living spaces such as backyards. Let’s look at the big Patio Furniture Trends you can expect to see in 2023.
The world has moved on from the humble Besser block barbecue with an old stainless grille to cook on or maybe your parents had a Weber! A dedicated outdoor cooking space tailored to your preferred cuisine is the ideal way to put a signature on your outdoor area. Maybe you favour the Traditional Australian outdoor barbecue. Rather than having to assemble an unwieldy bought kit you might consider a built-in space for your barbecue replete with preparation areas and even refrigeration. If you’re a fan of pizza it’s hard to look past a traditional woodfired oven but remember, you aren’t just limited to Pizza! Roasted meats and vegetables and even home-made bread can be elevated by cooking your wood fired oven. Then there is the “low and slow” school. Install a smoker and experiment with marinades and ribs and the art of American slow cooking. Having a custom-built outdoor kitchen can give you options that might be missing from your internal cooking setup. The only limit is your imagination!
In the year 2023, people won’t be afraid to take risks, and the trend will be to experiment with colour, patterns, and one-of-a-kind, eye-catching objects that become the focal point of a room. Experimenting with colour, patterns, and one-of-a-kind, eye-catching pieces that become the centre point of a room will be the trend that people will be following.
The colours of outdoor furniture are no longer restricted to merely those seen in nature. In the year 2023, we will see a trend towards furniture that makes a statement with colours that are both warmer and brighter. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colours to create an outside area that reflects your personality. This may be accomplished by adding a vividly coloured outdoor sofa or a splash of pink or yellow to your patio chairs, for example.
As consumers grow more aware of the influence they have on the environment, we are witnessing a rise in demand for outdoor furniture that is made from environmentally friendly materials. Pieces of long-lasting and environmentally friendly furniture are being crafted from bamboo, recycled plastic, and even mushrooms, among other eco-friendly and unusual materials. Keep an eye out for items that are manufactured using sustainable materials if you are interested in purchasing environmentally friendly outdoor furniture.
The use of natural wood treatments is gaining popularity as a growing number of people look for products that will have a smaller negative impact on the environment. In turn, there will also be a focus placed on designs that are more straightforward and sophisticated.
There is a current movement towards employing the use of natural materials in outdoor settings. The concept of having an outside living space that appears to be an extension of one’s house is appealing to a lot of people. Creating an atmosphere like that might be aided by using natural materials. Brick, stone, and wood are some of the natural materials that are utilised most frequently for the construction of outdoor areas.
The days of outdoor furniture consisting of squared-off boxes and sharp angles are over. The year 2023 is all about having curves! Chairs with curved lines not only offer a touch of sophistication and elegance to any room, but they are also significantly more comfortable to sit on compared to chairs with straight backs. Look for curved lines in the furniture if you want a modern patio set that will really stand out from the crowd.
The combination of pieces with straight lines and those with curved forms generates tension and drama. This might sound confronting but in the context of an outdoor entertaining area they provide a strong point of difference and individuality.
Retro and Cultural flourishes
You’re in luck if you have a passion for collecting vintage or antique items. It is also anticipated that furniture with a vintage aesthetic would make a reappearance. It should come as no surprise that things that take their inspiration from the past will become fashionable once again given the current surge in popularity of mid-century modern design.
The local antique store, car boot sale, flea market, and online marketplaces like as Gumtree and Facebook Marketplace are all great places to look for gorgeous vintage things that won’t break the bank.
Outdoor furniture in 2023 is more significantly influenced by designs from throughout the world than it ever has been before; as a result, you can anticipate seeing several pieces with an exotic flair this summer. As we go closer and closer to the year 2023, there is no shortage of international inspiration on the market right now. This can be seen in everything from Moroccan-inspired pouffes and outdoor rugs to Indian-inspired daybeds and artisan crafts.
