Fall Is Here, But It’s Not Too Early To Be Looking At What Is Trending For 2013 For Your Outdoor Space.

Cool evenings, sun is setting earlier and coming up later, yes Fall is upon us. Most people are thinking about the upcoming holidays and family gatherings, but we thought we would give you a sneak peek at the “Hot” outdoor patio furniture styles for the upcoming 2013 season. Style once again is very subjective, from traditional, transitional to modern, there are plenty of different configurations in each of these categories to meet each and every style requirement.

Cast aluminum patio furniture is the mainstay of every outdoor season. Style changes, powder-coat finishes vary and cushion colors are very personal. 2013 is really lending itself to straight lines, simple accents and the cushion colors are more muted with pops of plums, olive greens and yellow accents on throw pillows and throws. Bronze powder coat is still the most popular choice for residential furniture but black is coming on strong. Having so many similar styles out there to choose from, it will come down to the fine detail on each piece of furniture. Pay attention to the arm style, leg detail and welded joints to ensure your purchasing a high quality set.

All weather resin wicker furniture will continue to be hot in 2013.  Again, it comes down to style, thick strands, multi-dimensional weave and the new Viro polyrod are the tops of the market trend. Motion chairs are once again big for the high end residential applications. Large, sprawling sectionals and over-sized single deep seating with thick cushions are a sure bet for any lounge area. Sunbrella cushion fabric is a must to ensure that your cushions look and feel as good as the day you purchased them. All high end cushions will have Quick Dry reticulated foam in the interior and be complete with industrial zippers so that you can wash the covers at your leisure.

The market trends are ever evolving, but the one specification that doesn’t is the quality and workmanship on each piece of outdoor furniture. If your in the market for patio furniture in 2013, take these basic requirements into consideration when purchasing, ask the detailed questions and make sure to look for a cast in stone warranty, so that if something does happen for any reason, the company you purchase from will stand behind their product.
