Fired Up
Fire pits were a huge hit of 2016 and that is because they are a natural focal point in an outdoor space. They easily add luxury, ambiance, and warmth to any outdoor gathering. It is not only great for the cooler nights in summer but also can be used well into fall and into winter for those adventurous ones. It is the perfect place to just hang out, relax, and enjoy the company of friends and family. Just imagine sitting by your fire pit on a chilly summer evening with a glass of wine and some great conversation. Fire pits are available in multiple sizes and come in round, square, or rectangle shapes. You also have the option to pick out different fireglass colors to coordinate with your outdoor space.

Mixed Materials
Mixing different materials to create one beautiful outdoor space has been one of the most surprising trends of 2016. Mixing pieces made from various materials can create a more custom look and will give you the opportunity to be more involved in the design. This trend has already been seen indoors however it is making its way outdoors as well. For example, resin weave wicker has an aluminum frame that can be used with an aluminum fire pit table. Another example would be combining stainless steel with wicker, a look that is both modern and beautiful. This trend has become popular because it creates a more welcoming less styled look. It is for those who like to experiment and enjoy contrasts.

Bright, vibrant colors
Neutral tones will usually remain as the base color for outdoor seating, especially with the recent focus on gray. However, bold colors, stripes, and patterns give you the chance to customize your outdoor space with accent pillows and poufs. Bold colors have been extremely popular in 2016 to help liven things up in an all neutral outdoor space. Bright colors like aruba, hot pink, yellow, or orange could be a great addition to your patio or backyard. The best thing about this trend is that it is so easy to incorporate and at little cost. If you are a huge fan of color and would like to give your space a little facelift this may be the perfect trend for you.
