The end of Summer is the best time to buy outdoor furniture and accessories because that’s when they have the best sales! In this article, Chevy Chase-based Interior Designer, Christy Leu, will help you take your outdoor living to a new level of luxury. You’ll love her tips on Sunbrella and Crypton and easy furniture layout ideas so you are ready for next Summer.

Sunbrella is a darling of the interior design and soft furnishings world. It is a performance fabric that is perfect for outdoor and indoor use, resists stains and liquids, and comes in a vast array of colors and patterns. Sunbrella is often used in the creation of patio furniture cushions, shades, umbrellas, and marine canvases – though it can also be used for indoor window treatments and furniture upholstery as well.

Crypton is another performance fabric that many of us love and use. It resists stains, moisture, odor, and UV rays for long-lasting beauty in both indoor and outdoor applications. This is an especially nice solution for families with young children or pets who don’t want to forsake style for practicality. (Want that white sofa or ivory patio lounger? Go for it.)

Furniture layouts for outdoor living spaces should be communal, conversational, and cozy. We suggest creating a U shape or an L shape using a patio sofa and individual upholstered chairs. Add a weather-proof coffee table and outdoor rug for the perfect living room outside.

We also recommend adding accent lighting (string lights, tiki torches, battery-powered candles) to really set the mood.
