Add a Splash of Color, Texture With Contemporary Decor, Accessories & More

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 3, 2012) - There's nothing like the simple pleasure of being outdoors. Now, you can extend the comfort of your home outside and create an open-air atmosphere that's instantly relaxing and inviting with simple tips from west elm.

By choosing the right outdoor furniture and accessories, you can arrange a warm, inviting space that's rustic yet refined. Just a few easy steps and you've got a welcoming retreat for relaxing with family and friends, as well as a communal setting that's sure to spark plenty of conversation at parties and barbecues.

Here are eight modern outdoor furniture solutions that make it easy to turn your style inside out:

  • Modular Seating. With modular seating, one sofa can truly create endless summers. Pieces like our Tillary Outdoor Seating feature weighted back cushions that allow you to arrange your seating in multiple ways, so you can face the pool by day and the patio by night. Built with sustainably harvested wood, this is contemporary outdoor furniture you can feel good about.
  • Bistro Tables. Place a few bistro tables around the yard and you have several different spaces that are perfect for living, relaxing and entertaining alfresco. Be sure to select bistro tables that are designed to withstand sun and water with ease.
  • Dining Table. Choose pieces like those featured in our rugged, driftwood-inspired Jardine Dining Collection, which offers an endlessly adaptable canvas for patio parties of all types and tastes, while also adding aesthetic appeal. Add a few chairs or a long bench for seating and you've created the ultimate gathering space.
  • All-weather Curtain. Bring it all together with a breezy outdoor drape that lets you instantly create an outdoor room with ease. Choose durable fabric panels that can be swept open or shut -- to the left or the right -- for privacy and protection from the sun.
  • Stackable Chairs. Make sure everyone has a place to sit by having plenty of stylish stackable chairs on hand. Break them out at parties as needed then easily store them when not in use.
  • Outdoor Umbrellas. An absolute must for any outdoor space, umbrellas provide welcomed shade on warm, sunny days. Choose an umbrella like our new Rectangular Wooden Umbrella and you'll have a tough woven-polyester canvas that's waterproof and UV-resistant. The tropical, FSC-certified hardwood stand is eco-friendly and offers the perfect balance of understated style and shelter from the sun's rays.
  • Decorative Throw Pillows. Durable pillows made with water-resistant and sun-safe materials are a quick and inexpensive way to add a splash of color, style and texture to a deck, porch or patio. Swap them with other styles every season to create an entirely new look.
  • Stylish Storage. Keep toys, towels and outdoor tools out of the way with functional storage solutions that also add an aesthetic appeal. A weather-resistant organizer like our Wood-Slat Storage Bench can also work overtime as extra seating or table space during pool parties, barbecues and family time.
