Ready to give your outdoor living space the posh pick-me-up it deserves? Then color up with popsicle brights that’ll bring a smile (and lots of style) all summer long.
Indoors, designers use area rugs to define seating areas and create zones. Guess what? This little trick works outside, too. With its graphic pattern in bold blue and white, the Ikat Dot Cool outdoor rug anchors this seating area and creates the illusion of an outdoor room. 84” x 60″. $55.99.
Color up your cook-out with Sus plates and platters, an eco-friendly alternative to paper plates. Made of high-grade, BPA-free melamine, each piece is dishwasher safe; so this pretty tabletop set can be used over and over again for years. In the set are four salad plates, four dinner plates, two rectangular platters and one round platter. Value priced at $89.99.
With its generous proportions, gentle contours and closely spaced horizontal slats, the Nantucket outdoor rocking chair has a slight contemporary feel and is proof that comfort and style can co-exist in the great outdoors. Available in 14 fabulous colors (weathered denim shown here). Made of solid hardwood with a weather-resistant polyurethane finish, this chair is a steal at $169.99.
Tempting as it may be to spend pennies for outdoor living pieces, that’ll cost you more in the long run if what you buy isn’t made to last. That’s what makes the Gianna designer umbrella worth the investment. Made of 100% Sunbrella® fabric, this umbrella won’t fade and also delivers 98% UV protection. And its colorful shade, in an alternating stripe pattern with ruffled border, creates a mid-century modern French Riveria vibe. All that’s missing is Cary Grant sitting beneath it with a cocktail in-hand. $699-$999.
