Meet the patio furniture trends of 2013! Here’s a quick run-down of what’s up-and-coming in the world of outdoor living.
Mix ‘N’ Match
Two materials marry in a single piece, or a table from one collection finds company with chairs from another. Sometimes two things that don’t seem compatible combine to create the most beautiful harmony.

Aged To Perfection
If you prefer pieces with a little more … character, the reclaimed look will be right up your refurbished alley. Think weathered woods with perfectly (or imperfectly) rubbed-through finishes, earthy, more natural-looking resin wicker, and distressed surfaces on outdoor benches and deck boxes.
Pop Goes The Patio
Nothing brings a backyard space to life easier than color. This year, surround yourself with jewel-toned cushions, pillows, shades, and curtains. Turquoise looks great with everything, and bursts of green and yellow add instant cheer.

In The Round
All are equal at a round table and when it comes to chatting, the shape is naturally conducive to the flow of conversation. An absence of hard edges makes the circular trend welcoming and organically at home in nature.
Whether it’s a subtle nod to this classic style or the real deal, the wingback chair is back for this outdoor season. So don your ascot and pour a fine sherry because it’s time for a little refined relaxation.
