This post is all about outdoor furniture trends in 2024. This year, there’s a fun range of very different styles that gives you endless possibilities to style your garden space, balcony or patio exactly in your style!

1 | Sculptural Design and Curvy Furniture

The shift to more curved and sculptural furniture shapes over the past year is reflected in the outdoor space!

We’re seeing softer, organic forms and rounded edges. The revival of postmodern design with its distinct pieces is getting increasingly popular fast.

This style not only looks trendy but also makes for great eye-catchers.

With a long-term vision in mind, select one or a few distinct items and combine them with neutral pieces in a more minimal look.

That way you don’t have to replace your entire garden furniture when the trend goes out of style in a few years

2 | Hourglass Planters & Pots in Simple Geometric Shapes

Hourglass planters are a subtle yet bold addition to outdoor spaces!

Their geometric shape gives a postmodern vibe – a bit more subtle than curvy lounge chairs and couches of the emerging trend.

With different sizes and colours to choose from, hourglass planters and pots in round and cubic simple geometric shapes usually are quite neutral.

A great way to flank an entrance or framing a seating area.

3 | Bold Colours

The fun and playful furniture trends of the past years get carried outdoors.

Neutral tones have been the go-to for garden and patio furniture, but now bold colours get thrown into the mix!

This season, yellows, bright oranges, pastel blues, greens and purples, and of course, wavy checkerboard patterns are totally in style.

Tip: Choose accessories like outdoor cushions, placemats, or towels in those distinct colours and combine them with neutrals.

4 | Indoor-Outdoor Lounges

The distinction between indoor and outdoor so is getting fuzzier. Especially for sofas!

Some of the new outdoor lounges are almost resembling living room sofas.

So much so that you have to read the product description to not mistake normal couches for outdoor sofas.

Imagine cosy upholstered chairs and sectionals with weatherproof fabric, making them as comfy and inviting as indoor furniture. Add in outdoor rugs and weather-resistant coffee tables, and voil√†, you’ve got yourself a backyard living room vibe!

5 | Light Frames

The heavy, cubic lounge set that was the staple piece over the past decade is out of style. Lightweight furniture is on the rise!

New outdoor furniture collections come with light frames and clean lines. Typically in metal, teak wood, or natural material like rattan.

These new pieces are not just lightweight, they also give your outdoor area a breezy vibe.

6 | Natural Materials

With the rising focus on sustainability, more people are looking for natural materials in outdoor furniture. Think wood, rattan, and natural-looking textures that create a beautiful timeless look.

The neutrals and earthy colours help ground you in your outdoor sanctuary and make for an inviting atmosphere.

Whether it’s comfortable seating, hanging chairs, or outdoor rugs, earthy tones and sustainable materials will add warmth to your outdoor space, even long after the sun sets.

Make sure to choose responsibly sourced materials that can handle the outdoor elements.

7 | Outdoor Kitchens

Creating a complete outdoor cooking experience is on trend.

Outdoor kitchens now go way beyond just the grill or simple fire pits. They are full-blown kitchens, with smokers, high-end grills, and solid countertops.

When planning your outdoor kitchen, think about the layout, how often you’ll use it, and how you’ll use it in combination with your indoor kitchen while entertaining.

For smaller spaces, think about adding a stylish cart to your grill area to recreate the trend.
