Outdoor Living Trends You’ll See in 2020

With the year 2019 coming to a close, we are approaching the beginning of a new decade! When reflecting on the year it is clear that the basis for outdoor living was based on clean lines and modern materials. Let’s take a look at some trends that you may see this upcoming year!


Just like this year, 2020 is going to be all about the functionality but with a twist. With outdoor living on the rise, creating a fun yet functional outdoor oasis has never been a higher priority! Because space is often at a premium in outdoor living areas, furniture and accessories should be multi-purpose. Benches may have storage space underneath; tables may also be containers. By incorporating pieces into your space that work twice as hard will allow you to get the most out of your space all year long!

Organic influence

Organic influence is something that we’re looking forward to in the coming months. Unlike the modern geometric lines of last season, we’re predicting that this season will be all about free-flowing lines and surfaces. This asymmetrical water droplet inspired chair is just one way to bring subtle natural tones to your outdoor space this season.

Introduction of color

Another trend we saw last year was the use of very muted natural tones. As much as we love a simple color pallet, don’t be afraid to play with colors this season! By adding a pop of color with accent pillows and an outdoor rug you’re able to personalize your outdoor space and create a fun eye-catching area without compromising your sophisticated color pallets. If you’re not quite ready to purchase those canary yellow accent pillows, start small with some colored planters. 

Patterns, materials, textures

Nature is full of all kinds of textures and materials, why should your outdoor paradise be any different? Wall containers, planted with trailing vines and blooms, or outdoor-suitable art, such as tin ceiling tiles or salvage outdoor signage letters found at flea markets, are good ways to dress up large stretches of siding or stone that may otherwise go unnoticed. Adding small potted plants to an outdoor table is also a great way to incorporate table-top texture and color.

Custom Spaces

The main theme for outdoor living spaces in 2020? Individuality! Figure out what you want out of your space and design an area that works for you. By tailoring your outdoor space to fit all of your unwinding needs, you’ll be sure to spend more time outdoors this year, and create a great spot for entertaining!
