7 Luxury Outdoor Furniture Trends For 2024

Navigating trends in the realm of luxury home style demands an extensive understanding of the many intricacies at play. Dynamic details such as preferred aesthetics, innovation, culture, and society – all of which interact and give life to the latest in interior and exterior design. With so much distraction at our doorsteps, the ability to tell timeless trends apart from fleeting fads is an essential skill – especially when it comes to high-end decor. And whilst the cold winter days keep us focussed on indoor living, we must remember to plan for brighter, warmer weather. Because luxury is rarely off the rack, and with an up-to 14 week wait for bespoke items, now is the perfect time to start getting your garden ready. In this blog post, we’ll be sharing our seven luxury outdoor furniture trends to watch out for in 2024.

1. Indoor/Outdoor Living

Trend and fad are often mistaken for one and the same. But the difference is, trends evolve gradually, gaining momentum over time. Meanwhile, fads consist of rapid surges followed by even swifter declines. In reality, a true trend isn’t something that will fall out of fashion. Rather, it will evolve and adapt in an environment, eventually securing “timeless” status. Indoor/outdoor living is an excellent example, which is how it’s landed the top spot on our luxury outdoor furniture trends list for 2024.

What is indoor/outdoor living?

Particularly after our collective Covid experience, we care about wellbeing more than ever before. And this has given rise to the indoor/outdoor living trend and its myriad of mental – and physical – health benefits. Indoor-outdoor living refers to the seamless integration and interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces within a home environment. This concept blurs the distinction between interior and exterior, creating a harmonious flow that allows occupants to easily transition between the two. Often, it incorporates design features such as large windows and bi-fold or sliding doors and outdoor living areas. In addition to increasing our exposure to natural light, this helps us to feel more connected with nature, as well as promoting a more active lifestyle and social interaction. 

How to create an outdoor living area

Creating an outdoor living area begins with careful consideration. To start, define the purpose of the space – dining, lounging, entertaining, or multi-use, and take into account any existing factors, for example, sunlight, shade, swimming pools and natural elements. When it comes to features like flooring and furniture, choose pieces that are designed with durability in mind, and made using easily maintainable, weather-resistant materials. Incorporate comfortable seating; functional, yet ambient lighting; and if necessary, more greenery for a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. We’ve also seen increased demand for amenities such as outdoor kitchens, coffee bars and fire pits that work wonders to maximise both usability and enjoyment. (Pssssst: see trend 6!)

Our luxury outdoor sofas, armchairs, and sun loungers are a sure-fire way to bring a bit of that indoor comfort to your poolside, patio, or garden.

2. Mixed Materials

Texture is something we’ve welcomed into our homes with open arms, and now our list of luxury outdoor furniture trends for 2024. Much like with indoor/outdoor living, it feeds our intrinsic desire to be close to nature, known as biophilia. It’s also a fantastic way to create contrast in an increasingly synthetic and often clinical world. Experimenting with texture not only contributes to a more organic feel, but also adds depth, visual interest, and tactile appeal to any space. As a result, choosing garden furniture that helps to stimulate the senses is sure to elevate your exterior experience.

3. Earth Tones

If you’re sensing a theme so far, you’d be absolutely right. Again, opting for earth tones is a design decision that transports us back to earlier times as cave-dwelling creatures (and even before then!). Which is why they contribute to a sense of warmth, comfort and security – not to mention being easy on the eye. These specific shades of browns, beiges, greens, and terracottas also help us to feel more connected to the natural world. As a result, their employment in interior and exterior decor promotes relaxation as well as eternal appeal, making them the perfect choice for places in which you simply want to kick back and wind down. Finally, these grounding colours are wonderfully versatile, offering an ideal neutral backdrop for those statement pieces to take centre stage.

    4. Smart Furniture

    Just because we seek connection to a prehistoric way of living, doesn’t mean we can’t be connected to the latest tech, too! Number four on our list of luxury outdoor furniture trends for 2024 is all about the cutting edge. The term “smart furniture” refers to items or systems that incorporate technology to enhance functionality, convenience, or user experience. This ranges from simple built-in USB ports and charging stations, to more advanced sensors, automation, and connectivity to other devices or networks. It also includes contemporary materials, such as the polycarbonate pendants, tested to withstand even the most extreme environments, used to create our stunning range of outdoor chandeliers, in addition to the remote-controlled LED lighting included on a number of our outdoor sofa designs

    5. Artistic/Statement pieces

    Much like the inside of your home, it’s important for your exterior to also reflect your unique personality and style. From sculptures to statement furniture to creative landscaping, artistic elements serve as a form of self-expression, allowing you to curate an outdoor space that feels like it truly belongs to you. But that’s not the only reason you should consider using them. These features are an excellent way to accentuate your garden, whether through adding an interesting focus to enhance visual appeal, or improve overall experience by evoking whatever emotions you wish to feel. And, when it comes to hosting others, they are particularly great for getting the conversation going!

    6. Outdoor Kitchens

    As an interior design company, we’ve noticed that the desire to transform traditional gardens into multi-functional exterior living areas has been gaining some serious traction for quite some time. And it’s showing no sign of slowing down in 2024, as outdoor kitchens soar straight to sixth place on our list of luxury furniture trends to watch this year. Offering a seamless extension of your indoor living space, outdoor kitchens provide the opportunity to entertain, cook, and dine alfresco while enjoying the fresh air and natural surroundings. The humble barbecue is no longer our only option. Now, we have all kinds of amenities at our disposal – including grills, pizza ovens, refrigerators, sinks, and ample counter space, allowing for a complete culinary experience without even having to pop back inside the house.

      Curved furniture

      Curved furniture is one of our favourite interior trends predicted for 2024, and we’ll of course see this reflected in outdoor furniture, too. Curves are a great way to compliment more organic environments, mirroring natural contours of the landscape for a continuous, almost fluid aesthetic. For those with square or rectangular-shaped pools, or simply a more geometric garden layout, adding curves can help to soften any hard lines or sharp corners and bring forth a sense of balance. Curved furniture also offers a plush and embracing feel, providing extra comfort when lounging or dining in outdoor settings – and the perfect spot for getting cosy when the sun goes down!

        This lineup of luxury outdoor furniture trends for 2024 reflect a harmonious blend of functionality, aesthetics, and innovation, catering to needs both instinctive and evolving. From getting closer to nature to the incorporation of cutting-edge technology, each of these points present endless possibilities for creating a timeless garden design that reflects both who you are, and how you love to live.
