3 Outdoor Furniture Trends for 2024

3 Outdoor Furniture Trends for 2024

Four years post-pandemic and it’s safe to say that we’ve all grown to treasure our slice of the great outdoors within our own backyard. 

In recent years, more than half of American households have shelled out at least $1,500 on backyard upgrades, including outdoor furniture, with the goal of making their yards an extension of their indoor living space. 

It’s a smart investment. According to the National Association of Realtors®’ (NAR) and National Association of Landscape Professionals’ (NALP) outdoor upgrades could net you a healthy 83 percent return on investment.

And that’s to say nothing of the cool factor inherent in enjoying your property to its fullest. 

Whether you’re looking to create a Martha Stewart-approved outdoor entertainment space, or a laid back lounge homage to Jimmy Buffet, here are the top outdoor furniture trends for 2024, and how you can incorporate them into your pool and patio space.  

1. Sustainable Outdoor Furniture Materials

Style meets sustainability is the prevailing trend of outdoor furniture in 2024.

From a design perspective, organic shapes that mimic the beauty found in nature are in high demand. Think about the curves of a tree branch or the smoothness of river stones – that's the kind of vibe we're talking about.

This love for nature is not limited to looks. From recycled plastics to reclaimed wood, today’s eco-friendly outdoor furniture materials not only look good but also stand up to the element,  making them a win-win for both style and durability. 

Good news for homeowners: Going green is not nearly as expensive as it used to be. Pricey bamboo and teak used to be the standard, and among the few options for sustainable wooden outdoor furniture. But more cost effective, sustainable, and ethically sourced outdoor furniture options are hitting the market every day. 

One such material that we love at Aqua Terra Pool and Patio Acacia wood.

For starters, acacia wood is a highly renewable resource. It grows quickly and efficiently, so it doesn't put a strain on the environment the way that other types of wood can. And it’s beautiful.

 2. Hanging Furniture

Charming, relaxing, and a bit whimsical, hanging furniture epitomizes the trend of bringing indoor comfort to outdoor spaces. Hang furniture can often be found at top-tier hotels and sandy beaches, but who said you can't recreate resort-feel at home? 

Hanging chairs, in particular, have emerged as a contemporary favorite for outdoor areas, seamlessly blending comfort and style. Whether gracing a traditional porch or a chic outdoor lounge, these swings redefine outdoor spaces as inviting retreats. 

Taking up minimal space and offering endless possibilities for hanging, these chairs promise relaxation and leisure, whether suspended from a tree branch, hammock chair stand, pergola, porch, patio, or ceiling. With such versatility, the dream of a tranquil oasis becomes attainable 365 days a year — especially when you add a patio heater

When it comes to outdoor furniture in 2024, it's not just about having a place to sit; it's about sitting in style and comfort. Imagine your outdoor sofa doing more than just providing a spot for relaxation. 

With the integration of smart features, outdoor furniture becomes smarter than ever. From built-in USB ports for charging your gadgets to LED lighting that sets the perfect mood as the sun goes down it's like your outdoor furniture has a tech upgrade.

Of all the cutting edge backyard tech trends, the movie projector is top pick for 2024. It makes sense in a streaming world, movie theater attendance is at historical lows in the U.S. If you’re anything like us and would rather cue up Netflix than pay $18 for a movie ticket, here’s our movie projector of choice.
