Style Forecasting: Outdoor Furniture Trends for Summer 2020


Not all homeowners will be lucky enough to have outdoor living space, but those that do will have an exciting project on their hands. There are a wide variety of styles and designs you can implement into your outdoor living space, making it a part of your home everyone can enjoy.

With the summer months approaching and a large majority of the nation stuck in lockdown, there has never been a better time to start considering new outdoor furniture trends for summer 2020. Whether your current furniture is starting to age or you’re just ready for a change, a simple update can make all the difference in the world. 

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular styles, designs, and trends we are seeing with outdoor furniture as we gear up for Summer 2020. 

Colorful Cushions & Pillows

One of the most difficult decisions you’ll face with outdoor furniture is color. When it comes to large furniture, you can easily play it safe by choosing neutral colors and that’s exactly what we are going to see a lot of this summer. 

At the same time, that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative and introduce fun colors. Many designers will save the excitement for the accessories that go along with the furniture. Pillows, blankets, and cushions are a perfect way to add bright, contrasting colors to your neutral furniture. In fact, the more neutral your furniture is, the brighter your accessories can be!

Strip Lighting

Strip lighting has been around for a while, but homeowners have continued to find creative ways to utilize its elegance throughout the interior and exterior of the house. In 2020, strip lighting is starting to take on a new meaning when it comes to outdoor furniture. 

To enhance the look of your furniture at night, you can use the strip lighting to create a border. Whether you outline the floor underneath the furniture or outline the entire piece of furniture, the choice is all yours! 

Modular Sofas

In the old days, sofas were largely seen inside the home and were rarely taken outside. Nowadays, homeowners like to take what’s inside and bring it outside -- sofas included. And when it comes to sofas, there are a wide variety of styles to choose from. 

In 2020, we are starting to see modular sofas rise in popularity and demand. Modular sofas have interchangeable pieces that allow you to easily change the look, formation, and style of the sofa whenever you want. When looking for versatility, this is the way to go -- inside or outside!

Hammocks Aren’t Going Anywhere

It would be wrong to talk about outdoor furniture trends for summer 2020 and not mention everyone’s favorite piece of furniture. Believe it or not, the number of people that own a hammock is extremely low -- which is surprising given how many people wish they had one. 

Hammocks provide a timeless look that anyone can enjoy. They make those lazy Sunday afternoons much easier to enjoy and will likely become the most popular spot throughout the whole house. 

Can’t Find a Style? Make Your Own!

Some homeowners will find it difficult to draw inspiration from the many trends we are seeing today, but that doesn’t mean your home project has to come to an end. In fact, that would be the perfect time to start a trend of your own!

At the end of the day, there are no rules and guidelines to follow when building out your family’s outdoor living space. Bright colors, strip lighting, modular sofas, and hammocks are what’s popular right now, but you ultimately get to have your say in what’s popular tomorrow!
