They may sound like bits of advice on aging gracefully, but these simple tips will ensure that your next patio set is right on trend. The following are four patio furniture trends to consider for 2012.
Go grey. Shades of slate and charcoal on frames and cushions bring sophistication to the patio.
Curves are in. Overtly curved or rounded just a smidge, patio furniture drops the hard lines in favor of softer silhouettes.
Embrace Au Naturel. Old is new again in this trend featuring concrete-like tabletops, mosaics and distressed finishes.
Mix ‘n mingle. Two materials marry in a single piece or a table from one collection finds company with chairs from another.
Shop for new patio furniture with these trends in mind, and you’re sure to pick something that’s fresh and unique.
