Outdoor Wicker Furniture


If you are like many, the appearance of your home is important. Having people take notice of your home as a real head-turner is something you take a deep sense of pride in. Adding outdoor wicker furniture to your patio will ensure that it is a real eye-catcher and stands out among the rest. You can also choose unique cushion fabrics and designs for added appeal.


What makes a home standout is when all parts come together to form one overall stunning façade. What’s also important is that each individual piece is eye-catching in its own right.

The Patio

In order to have your patio stand out and make it one of the focal parts of your home, you need to do a little thinking and planning. Depending on how serious you are, you might even want to hire a decorator. Regardless, the setting where the furniture will sit is very important. Size, shape and location play an important role in designing a patio layout.

Things to Consider

  • The ground surface
  • The ground color(s)
  • Background structures
  • Background colors
  • Plants and their location
  • Walls, pools and ponds
  • Lawns

All of these items will play a role in the overall outdoor decor of your backyard haven.

Choosing Style

Picking out the right furniture is generally not too difficult and is often the most fun part about decorating. To start, you should look to coordinate the furniture you like with the rest of the background. Various magazines and websites offer many different insights and style guidelines that can be very useful if finding the right style or display becomes harder than you planned. While size, shape and uniqueness all play an important role in creating a patio space that is uniquely your own, using your imagination will also set your backyard apart from the rest of the neighborhood.

The Layout

Evaluate the space you have and the accompanying background. Sketch it out on paper. Then sketch in the furniture. Evaluate and determine what pieces you want and arrange them so that they will be seen from the perspective you want guests to view it.

Fabric and Accent Pillows

Choosing fabrics that will be eye-catching by themselves, as well as be part of the overall appeal is an important part in bringing your dream patio together. The fabric must blend in well with the frames and overall setting. The use of solids, strips or florals will depend on the decor you want to pursue.

Accent throw pillows provide a wonderful way to show off a piece of furniture. Coordinating your cushion fabric with pillow fabric can really make your furniture stand out.

The Furniture

Outdoor wicker furniture is unique in and of itself. There are many choices of styles and frame colors. There are standard and deep-seating wicker sets that can be used in many different situations. Choosing pieces that are unique themselves such as a chaise lounge chair and accent pieces such as wicker planters can only add to your success in designing a popular patio that people won’t stop taking about.
