Garden furniture - what are the new outdoor trends in 2021?

Getting out of the house or apartment at long last and spending more time outdoors in nature again. That's what we wish for after the dark season, which always seems far too long. And even more so after the many months at home and in the home office.

In order to satisfy the desire for outdoor pursuits, it is a good idea to take a look at the latest trends in outdoor furniture and see how you can create a really beautiful atmosphere in your own garden. We reveal the latest spring trends for you.

- To help you relax in the comfort of your own garden, we have identified the latest garden furniture trends for 2021. Find out more in our new blog post!

Where are the trends heading?

Garden furniture in itself cannot be reinvented every season, but there are always new developments and ideas that delight. The reinterpretation of classics can also be quite inspiring.

This year, a trend is emerging: We want to make our own four walls and our gardens extra harmonious and cosy. To have places of retreat that allow us to relax in times that require all our flexibility and adaptability to new situations. Somewhere where we can recharge our batteries.

Innovative material

Rope as a material is becoming increasingly popular and is definitely one of this year's trends. We are talking about an extremely stable cord weave that offers interesting, variable looks through different weaves and braids and is available in many popular colours.

Rope furniture can be round and flowing or cubic and straight-lined. In any case, it looks light and modern. It has an avant-garde character and uniquely combines modern elegance with cosiness.

Like all outdoor furniture of the polypropylene and polyrattan generation, it is extremely weather-resistant. The light weight makes it a flexible, practical companion in all situations. You can, for example, easily find new places to comply with distance regulations.

The open frames create an interesting spatial effect and some designs are therefore stackable, so they take up little storage space. This can be a decisive advantage when space is rather limited or on balconies and terraces.

Natural colours and accessories

The desire for proximity to nature and soothing airiness is also reflected in the trend colours. The classic white in all shades will continue to enjoy great popularity in 2021. Combined with earthy colours and shades of green through to the popular olive, it brings elegance to your ensemble. Sharp contrasts are not in high demand, but of course nuances and colour accents can be set by upholstery, cushions or a shade-providing parasol according to personal preference.

Use your favourite accessories to create the right atmosphere and, with the proper soft lighting, transform your seating areas into cosy oases of well-being, especially in the evenings. Many new solar solutions in torch or lantern look are available. Decorative tabletop fireplaces fired with bio ethanol are also gaining popularity. Outdoor rugs are another trendy style element that exude calm and cosiness and can also fit perfectly into a modern ambience.

The trend towards modules

The trend towards modular lounge sets is also apparent in the 2021 collections. It reflects the desire for individuality and adaptability. In this way, when friends and families get together again in the future, the cosy retreats can be turned into spacious, inviting seating ensembles.

Furniture lines whose elements allow tables as well as stools and armchairs to be assembled from a single cubic module in a few easy steps also feature in the latest collections. They cater perfectly to the need for flexibility.

Sustainability and price structure for outdoor furniture

Fortunately, sustainability is no longer a trend, but has become the permanent aspiration of many consumers. One of the main factors is durability. The prerequisites for this, apart from maintenance, are high-quality materials and good, expertly executed workmanship.

If the origin of the material also fulfils the sustainability requirements, such as the use of certified woods and fairly traded organic materials for the outdoor textiles, you will tend to find this garden furniture in the medium to upper price segment.

By purchasing in a way that conserves resources, you support the preservation of our ecosystems and do something good for yourself and your loved ones by realising the garden of your dreams!
