When you purchase an outdoor furniture set, you probably have a vision of the many gatherings and parties you’ll have with your new furniture. Keep this vision in mind when you’re styling your pieces. 

Creating a conversation area is a functional way to arrange your furniture for both everyday and special occasions. Two loveseats facing each other, or a large sectional paired with a table and cushioned club chairs, will create intimate conversation areas. Having a television or fun outdoor games nearby can help get the conversation flowing.

Include pillows on your plush seating as decorative accents. They will also provide support when your guests are sitting. Accent pillows are a great way to add a pop of color or other unique patterns to your space. An awesome thing about throw pillows is that you can change them out to different colors and patterns throughout the year to give your outdoors a different look.  At Paddy O’ Furniture we have Bliss pillows and other outdoor lines of pillows that are so plush you won’t believe they are meant to be left outdoors – but Bliss pillows are fade resistant and weather resistant!

If you’re looking to complete a furniture setup, many cushioned collections work with a dining table in a similar style. You can also choose a dining table that doesn’t match perfectly but complements the seating styles you’ve chosen. The dining table should be styled as its own area. Be sure there is enough space for everyone to comfortably pull out their chair and sit down. If your table is not under a patio cover, consider including an umbrella. Umbrellas offer protection from the sun, and add an extra element of style to your setting.

No outdoor furniture setup is complete without somewhere to kick up your feet and relax. Whether it’s a poolside chaise lounge, or even a loveseat, imagine how you’ll use your outdoor furniture when it’s just you. Will you want to lay by the pool? Will you enjoy your morning coffee on the patio? Large club chairs styled next to a side table is also a great option for lounging.

Consider bringing some home décor outside. Select pieces that will be OK outdoors in direct sun or under a shaded porch. You can consider a bowl of fruit outside, perhaps fresh from your fruit trees!
