Outside Is the New Inside: 2019 Trends in Outdoor Living

Outdoor furniture is turning increasingly popular in the design world. Interior designers and landscape architects have been designing innovative backyards and patios that are high on style just as your interior spaces are. Let’s take a look at what’s trending in outdoor living for 2019.

1. Patio Furniture Trends for 2019

Wood Slat Patio

A deck style patio with wood all around is a trend that’s never going to go out of style. It’s so versatile and it can give your outdoor space a rustic, chic and modern appeal.

Painted Patio Floor Tiles

Geometric floor tiles have been trending in indoor spaces. You can recreate this magic in your outdoor space too. Try combining three colors to give your space more character. You can liven up your outdoor dining space with a textured finish, dramatic glaze, or rustic colors.

Stone Pavers With Pea Gravel

You’ve probably seen stone pavers at hotels, villas, cafes and huge homes. But did you know you could recreate the same in your outdoor space? Even if your outdoor space isn’t huge, it’s a great idea to remodel your patio.

Tip: Make sure you use materials that are strong and durable.

2. Outdoor Dining Set Trends for 2019

Mixed Materials

Combination of different types of materials like metals, timber, upholstery, and rope are trending this year. For instance, outdoor sofas with a powder-coated metal frame can be combined with charcoal fabric and rope detailing to come up with a look that’s chic and trendy.

Low-Slung Seating

Low-slung sofas are gaining popularity with a look that defines ultimate comfort. The cushions in contrasting textures, styles, and patterns add to the character. Generally, younger homeowners prefer this type of seating.

Modular Sofas

Multi-functional furniture is a growing trend and is a must-have, especially in urban compact homes, although they are versatile enough to be adapted in both small and large spaces.


2019 will see a shift towards colors that blend easily with the outdoor environment and will incorporate natural materials. Sofas with neutral colors with a dash of color and texture, along with scattered cushions will be a huge trend in 2019.
