Outdoor Furniture Trends: What's Hot and What's Not for 2024

Though we may still have snow on the ground here in Connecticut, we are dreaming of warmer days ahead. And, as it turns out, February is actually the perfect time to order your custom outdoor furniture pieces to make sure they’re here for spring.  At Saybrook Home, our outdoor furniture collections are now on the showroom floor in Old Saybrook and Glastonbury.

Let’s explore the hottest outdoor furniture trends for 2024, as well as those trends that the sun’s setting on. 

What's Hot ...

Mixed Materials

Blending different materials like wood, metal, and rattan is all the rage this year. Combining textures and finishes adds visual interest and creates a modern, eclectic look. We are all about the mix and match trend - whether it be within a single piece of furniture, or pairing pieces of furniture from a number of different collections. 


Sustainable Choices

With a growing focus on eco-conscious living, sustainable outdoor furniture made from recycled materials or responsibly sourced wood is gaining popularity. Consumers are increasingly seeking environmentally friendly options without compromising on style or quality.

Modular Seating

Versatile modular seating allows for customizable configurations to suit any outdoor space. From sectional sofas to modular loungers, these pieces offer flexibility and comfort for entertaining or relaxation.

Outdoor Rugs

Just like indoor spaces, outdoor areas can benefit from the warmth and definition provided by rugs. Outdoor rugs in bold patterns or natural textures help to anchor furniture arrangements and define separate zones within the outdoor space.

Fire Features

Literally the hottest thing your patio needs this summer is a fire feature. Our Glow fire table by Jensen Outdoor Living invites guests to linger later into the evening. For a more portable option, our Anywhere Fireplaces create amazing ambiance.

What's Not ...

Matchy-Matchy Sets

Gone are the days of perfectly coordinated outdoor furniture sets. Instead of purchasing a matching dining set or conversation set, embrace the mix-and-match approach for a more eclectic and personalized look.

Traditional Wicker

Traditional wicker furniture, while timeless in its appeal, is taking a backseat to more practical designs featuring synthetic wicker or rattan that offer greater durability and weather resistance.

Heavy, Bulky Pieces

Bulky, cumbersome outdoor furniture that's difficult to move or rearrange is falling out of favor. Lightweight and streamlined designs are preferred for their versatility and ease of use.

By staying informed about the latest trends in outdoor furniture, you can create a stylish and inviting outdoor retreat that reflects your personal taste and enhances your outdoor living experience. Whether you're embracing the mix-and-match aesthetic or incorporating sustainable materials, updating your outdoor furniture can breathe new life into your outdoor space and set the stage for memorable gatherings and moments spent in the great outdoors.
