If you have an outdoor space that needs to be rejuvenated, or you are looking to deck out your external area for the first time, one of the best ways to get inspiration is to look at upcoming trends in Australia. From the hottest colours of 2023 to the materials and shapes that will rise in popularity over the year, read on to find out more about the biggest trends in outdoor furniture for 2023!
1. Bright colours
You may be accustomed to seeing natural or more subtle colours outdoors, but this year is set to see a focus on statement colours and bright shades of furniture. Try warmer colours like reds, pinks or yellows to add some fun to your outdoor space. Other bright colours like blues or greens could help to create a more relaxed and natural feeling space while still enjoying some bursts of bright, statement shades. Feel free to experiment with colours this year and find what suits you best!
2. Luxe materials
Previously, you may have seen a lot of rattan making up outdoor furniture sets. However, a more modern take is to put more of a focus on materials like metallics, including brass and copper. If you are looking for a classy or more high-end style, marble and granite are the hot materials of the year. Another option is to draw inspiration from the items you already have. This way, you can coordinate your furniture to draw the outside in and make the outdoor space feel more like an extension of your indoor area.
It is becoming more and more important for furniture to be sustainably sourced. There is much more awareness around how items impact the environment and this is changing trends. Materials you are more likely to see in the coming year include bamboo and recycled plastics. Some of these items look wonderful with a naturally chic feel.
4. Modular designs
Modular designs include multiple pieces that can be moved around and arranged as you desire in a given space. This makes it adaptable and customisable to your desires. Whether you need extra space for a long day of lounging or you need coffee tables and seating for a big event, you can rearrange modular designs to fit your requirements on the day. It is also ideal for tight spaces since you can simply move items around to change up the area.
Expanding on the trend of bright, popping colours, there is also a lean towards monochrome designs. You could opt for a modernist style which features black and white outdoor accessories, such as lanterns and cushions, to create a classy and sophisticated atmosphere. Otherwise, you can simply choose a colour to focus your space around. Opting for just one colour keeps the space looking coordinated and organised in a serene and eye-catching way.
Another new trend is curves. Moving away from sharp, box edges, this year is leaning towards sophisticated circles and magnificent curves. For example, curved coffee tables, round lighting and circle cushions are set to be in-demand in 2023. This is great for comfort as well as style.
