2015 Outdoor Furniture Trends in Connecticut

The groundhog may have seen his shadow this year, but his six weeks is almost up, so bring on the gorgeous Connecticut sunshine. Yes, that means it’s time to dust off the umbrella and spruce up your outdoor furniture. Not sure where to get started? Here’s a look at the top outdoor furniture trends for 2015 to get your creative juices flowing:

Rustic and Alluring

Thanks to its classic lines and inviting style, wicker outdoor furniture will never go out of style, and it looks especially serene with Connecticut’s gorgeous scenery as its backdrop. But it’s important to realize that not all wicker furniture was meant to withstand the elements, so make sure to get some that is. Lloyd Flanders is one of our favorite outdoor wicker brands because it looks the most like the real stuff thanks to their patented techniques, yet you can leave it on your porch all year long without a worry.

Warm and Inviting

Another outdoor furniture trend that is ideal for Connecticut homeowners is the fire pit. It’s not only functional, but it amps up the ambiance of your patio tenfold. And with so many options—both in the fuel source and the style—there is something for everyone. If you really want your fire pit to make a statement, check out the Vin de Flame Wine Barrel Fire Pit. Not only will it demonstrate your exceptional taste in outdoor furniture, but its stainless steel hardware and sealed wood will also withstand the humidity Connecticut is known for.

Responsible and Calming

Going green isn’t just about adjusting your thermostat and enrolling in paperless billing; it’s about purchasing items that have been recycled and/or are recyclable. And that’s exactly what you will get with our Seaside Casual collection. It is made out of EnviroWood, which is essentially old milk jugs, water bottles, and other high-density polyethylene sources that have been transformed into amazing outdoor furniture. The Seaside Casual collection is not too detailed, yet not too basic, so it will instantly relax you with both its silhouettes and color schemes. The best part is it requires very little maintenance and will last a lifetime.

There you have it: the most popular trends in outdoor furniture for 2015. Can’t you just picture yourself enjoying the fresh Connecticut air while lounging on a luxurious wicker lounge chair? Or gathering your closest friends around your captivating fire pit while you talk about your summer plans? Or hosting a family dinner on your stunningly simple EnviroWood dining set? With one visit to Porch & Patio, it can all be yours. Man, it’s going to be a great year.
