Whether you are new to the world of contemporary design or have always admired its changing looks, staying up to date with today’s boldest furniture design trends is key to successfully showcasing the best contemporary furniture. This doesn’t solely apply to indoor furniture design concepts. In fact, your exterior living space often dictates the first impression you make to house guests and neighbors. Utilizing high-end outdoor furniture to grab attention and introduce your own style preferences is huge. Agreed, sometimes it is difficult to know where to begin. That is why we’ve put together a comprehensive guide for selecting cutting-edge contemporary outdoor furniture.
Multi-Texture Integration—Adding Contemporary Character to Your Home
Many of our most popular contemporary designers feature outdoor furniture that make a statement through the use of contrasting materials such as teak and aluminum or mesh and stainless steel. Barlow Tyrie and Gloster are two of many manufacturers who blend textures and tones of varying materials—teak, glass, natural stone, ceramic, Textaline, wicker, stainless steel and powder-coated aluminum—throughout their collections to add intrigue, comfort and visual appeal to any exterior area.
Accent Pieces—Tying Outdoor Spaces Together with Big or Small Design Touches
Sharp lines and atypical shapes are classic identifiers of high-end, contemporary outdoor furniture. Rausch, for example, manufactures statement pieces that feature boldly angular forms, such as its one-of-a-kind Platform collection. Even its chair legs and table designs have stark edges that leave a lasting impression. We love the brimming energy and comfortable ambiance Rausch’s contoured lounge chairs or fiberglass recamiers will bring to your outdoor oasis.
Dimension—How Size & Shape Impact Contemporary Design
One tool designers use to make their products stand out is to diverge from typical furniture heights, widths and layouts. Deep-seating options that sit low to the ground allow for easy reclining and a look of luxury. Another way they might add dimension to your space is by alternating between light and dark pieces. This creates focal points throughout your exterior living space. Sifas showcases many of these very concepts in its outdoor furniture lines, such as the luxurious Komfy.
