And it is not the decorating specialists encountered at the turn of the aisles who say the opposite: the licked design pieces may well multiply on terraces and gardens. Small preview of the outdoor fashion for spring / summer 2019.
Outdoor furniture: combine design and technicality.
The challenge of outdoor furniture lies in a major challenge: combining technical performance and aesthetic rendering. This is why this sector has long remained in the shadow of interior design, less subject to the constraints of resistance. Brands are constantly developing new solutions to cope with bad weather and produce parts capable of going through the years without suffering too much. Sunbrella Garden Sofa Sets are the perfect example of the modern and tendy garden furniture set that the outdoor furniture world will supply in the years to come.

"Even if they are treated to withstand the sun, certain colors may pass. stabilized shades, which are not likely to wash out. " The choice of materials is also subject to a resistance requirement. Moisture-resistant materials are prohibited, metals such as aluminum or steel are treated not to oxidize, as are the canvases that pass through the anti-mold and anti-UV box. And when the wood comes into the collections, it is regularly teak, known for its natural resistance. Although consistent, these specifications do not prevent the emergence of creative outdoor furniture, as powerful as aesthetic.
Trend n ° 1: the outdoor like a real room of the house
The border between interior and exterior tends to fade as evidenced by the craze for XXL bays or terraces installed in the extension of the living room. This phenomenon also impacts the garden furniture which takes on falsely familiar airs. "Today we consider the exterior as an additional piece of housing. This is sometimes the first space guests see when they arrive, which is why the care given to the furniture is growing. The idea? Find the same decorative environment in the garden as inside the house.
This trend : this flirt is related to the need for modularity: "There is more interior or exterior, people want to walk their chair from the terrace to the room. Eat or even in the bathroom, it is precisely this blurring between the spaces that makes the decoration fun. " Thus new outdoor pieces are designed to wander from the garden to the home. In the collections, this trend is reflected in very well-crafted pieces: armchairs with identical braids as seating for the living room, metallic sofa ends, modernized chair slabs. Above all, the number of pieces of furniture multiplies to compose an outdoor space as complete as inside.

Trend n ° 3: Accessorization of the outside
This year, we are no longer satisfied with an armchair or a garden sofa, it is time to accessorize the outside. "The sector is also developing through small rooms such as pedestal tables, dessert sets, trays or even trivets that finally accessorize the plot as we decorate a living room with small decorative objects", explains Emma from Rattan Furniture Fairy . Recently, poufs began to expatriate themselves outside; they bring details specific to the show outside.
While trinkets are still rare in outdoor rays, outdoor rugs and other portable lighting are teeming with brand collections. Again, the goal is to embody the garden with a more personal note, more design. These accessories help to transform the image of the outside because they participate in the warm atmosphere sought in all the spaces of a housing nowadays.
Trend n ° 4: outdoor furniture seeks escape
The nomadic world is popular for the 2019 summer season. More than ever, garden furniture seeks to disorient us with colors and textures inspired by distant lands. The specialists from the outside have succumbed to the exotic tendency where the more or less vitaminized prints are overflowing. Thus the escape goes through the decorations of the textiles: "One seeks for example to reproduce the spirit of the rigid weavings, the basketry or the canvas, in the suppleness of the cushions".
"There is also a comeback of wooden structures for seating or sofa ends," adds Ilse Thoelen from TRIBÙ, proving that the Scandinavian trend continues to influence all areas of decoration. "
In color, earthy tones such as browns, roses, coral and terracotta are featured - a nod to the different shades that the sun can bring. A deeply natural palette that infuses a powdery atmosphere on the terrace or in the garden.
