Gorgeous furniture designs are taking indoor sophistication and comfort outside, making your backyard an extension of your interior style. But why stop there?  Adding several area rugs and throw pillows elevate your outdoor level of comfort even more. Here’s how:

Define your space with vibrant area rugs.

If your outdoor deck, patio or lanai is large and undefined, you may need to set some boundaries. Rugs create visual borders that break up large areas and make it easier to determine furniture placement.

Add a little color– or a lot of – for visual impact.

Just as you would an interior room, design your outdoor living space with a theme and color scheme in mind. Here are a few options:

Patterns Pop – The geometric design of this rug stands out beautifully against the neutral tone of the sectional. Changing out the rug and throw pillows results in a completely different look.

Neutral’s Nice – Slate gray and other earth tones are universally appealing and always in vogue.

Color Counts – Bright colors liven up any area. Pair several hues together for a lively look that’s anything but boring.

Increase your comfort level with an outdoor rug or two.

Warm weather begs for bare toes, but concrete, tile, and hardwood decks can get scorching hot in the dog days of summer. Soft rugs underfoot offer respite from the heat, while strategically placed comfy cushions create much-welcomed back support.

Relax. Nuvella® fabric and outdoor rugs are long lasting & easy care.

While outdoor furniture is loaded with indoor style elements, it’s still…well…outdoors. Choose pillows covered in weather-resistant fabric such as Nuvella, a high-performing, durable fabric. This all weather fabric repels moisture and stains, and, with proper care, will continue to look bright season after season. Ensure that area rugs are indoor/outdoor, and read care instructions to prevent formation of mold and mildew.
