If there's one thing that will not fade even as restrictions ease, it is we can gather together with our friends and family. The first place we will be enjoying each other's accompany will be in the great alfresco areas. Here are our top outdoor furniture trends for 2023:

1. Meet your Multifunction Demands

Multifunctional outdoor furniture is a big trend coming in for 2023 with people looking to maximise their spaces and make room for Zoomed yoga classes and workouts at home. Gone are the days when a table is just a table, outdoor extension tables as well as quick and easy pack downs make spaces transformational for all the seasons to come, tables with hidden compartments for quick and easy storage are also in for the new year. Turn any outdoor cabinets into outdoor bar table tops with the addition of outdoor bar stools for modern multifunctional storage and entertaining space.

2. Timeless Design

Following on from number 1 is a trend that denounces trendiness if David Attenborough has taught us anything it is over-consumption. Moving into 2023, a big trend is in up-cycling what we have. And when buying new, invest in ergonomic, long-lasting, and timelessly designed outdoor furniture that will stand the test of time in any space without replacing.

3. Metals out, naturals in

Eco-outdoors is not a new term, but with people stuck indoors for most of 2020. Traditional wooden outdoor furniture is a trend that is going nowhere as people return to traditional craft and carving. Look for product which made from natural timber like Teak, Oak or Bamboo when choosing your next outdoor dining setting.

4. Curvy & well rounded

Have you noticed more rounded and womanly figured shapes as the new interior design trends this season? Outdoor furniture designers have not escaped from this trend with people opting for an alternative to the boxy, minimalistic clean linear shapes that have dominated the architecture and design world the past few years. Look for round extendable outdoor dining tables, outdoor daybed, bulbs outdoor decors such as vases and lighting.

5. Soft lighting

With the running theme of returning to nature and our thirst to get back to basics, fire pits and wooden outdoor heaters have had a resurgence in popularity lately. Replacing the blue light glow of fluorescent garden lights fire pits and wood fire outdoor heaters add serenity and a sense of calm to your outdoor living space. What's more relaxing to take your mind off the worries of 2020 than watching a crackling fire sitting back and lounging in your outdoor dining setting. 

6. Bringing the indoor style to outdoors

Creating continuous solutions connecting the indoors and outdoors is a big transition trend for 2023. Modular outdoor lounges, paired with outdoor benches to create the perfect outdoor living space. We will see the addition of durable vase and tableware, outdoor rugs and storage boxes for easy cushion and tabletop accessories storage. Also, you can double your seats in alfresco area with outdoor benches, which can provide extra seating when needed.
