  • Colored Cushions
    Vibrant colored cushions in a variety of styles and prints can dress up patio furniture, adding flair to function. And don’t be afraid to mix textures — think, sturdy canvas and even a soft chintz— for a feeling of depth and luxury.
  • Rugs
    Outdoor rugs can instantly transform an outdoor space, defining an area, adding a splash of color and creating the perfect space for casual conversation or dining.
  • Lights
    Adding sparkle to your outdoor decor is easy with candles for varying size and hue. Lanterns and decorative lights tucked inside planters and strung overhead, in trees or on a trellis offer a cozy ambiance.
  • Accessories
    Indoor accessories like beverage trays, decorative displays and wall art can be easily transferred from the inside to the outside. The move will bring a lively new look for a quick and easy addition to your outdoor entertaining area.
  • From the Garden
    Look no further than your own garden and planters to add the perfect finishing touch for your outdoor paradise. Display fresh floral cuttings or showcase gleaming jade or other succulent arrangements on tables or placed among the furniture. These garden items add beauty, color and lovely fragrance.
