How to Make Outdoor Spaces as Beautiful and Comfortable as Indoors

Lifestyles - Mon, 03/30/2015 - 15:14
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - While making the inside of your home beautiful is naturally a focus, there's so much to be gained from an outdoor space. Beautifully designed and decorated, outdoor areas not only expand upon actual "livable" space but enable you to enjoy your home al fresco -- and the good news is, you don't have to sacrifice style or the comfort of the indoors.

With everything from sofas and sectionals to colorful Moroccan-inspired floor rugs and outdoor chandeliers, one home-furnishings retailer is bringing both style and comfort from the indoors out. And with signature designs from its outdoor collection available in stores across the country and hundreds of furniture plus accessory options on its website, Arhaus is placing a world of outdoor décor options at your fingertips.

"We have something for everyone, for every style, for every space, and designs are made to weather the elements," says Gary Babcock, chief creative officer for Arhaus.

Here are some key pieces to recreate rooms outdoors:

Classic wicker. "Wicker never goes out of style," says Babcock. Choose from a number of different looks by the retailer -- including occasional seating, as well as dining and accent tables. "Add a conversation piece to the setting," suggests Babcock, referring to a wicker wingback chair in a chic herringbone pattern.

Antique inspirations. European antiques inspired several aluminum designs by Arhaus -- from a Greek klismos chair to an English library-looking sofa with matching chair, chaise and end and coffee tables. "Stuart is the most traditional [aluminum] collection with an x-back design," says Babcock. Stuart features a chaise for two with shade overhead and privacy draperies.

Slipcovered upholstery. "We took our coziest upholstery collections and redesigned pieces to sit outside," says Babcock. Slipcovered in easy-to-care-for fade-resistant Sunbrella/Outdura fabric and underneath, cushions are guaranteed to fend off mold and mildew, and frames are "marine-grade" -- hence, waterproof and worry free.

Mixed materials. Reconstructed stone, lighter and more durable than concrete, is mixed with everything from metal to reclaimed elm and teak to create tables at varying heights and widths for any outdoor occasion.

Decorative accessories. Like any interior, accents pull everything together -- even outdoors. Consider a beautiful floral or awning striped rug, a patterned pouf, a mix of colorful accent pillows and handmade pottery in different shapes, sizes and finishes. For outdoor lighting, there's Arhaus' Claudette Chandelier, among other options.
