5 Trends in Luxury Outdoor Furnishings for 2023


Many of us put a great deal of thought into creating stylish, multi-functional outdoor spaces. Several trends in outdoor furniture can help us achieve the outdoor room of our dreams.

1. Lighter Frame Colors

For a modern and airy feel, we recommend lighter frame colors such as light gray, off-white, and taupe.

Aris Collection

The Aris swivel chat chairs (by OW Lee), have been so popular during the last two years at Rich’s that we’ve added the Aris sofa and love seat to the lineup.

This collection incorporates the principles of mid-century design, featuring clean, modern lines.

The tubular aluminum frames are expertly crafted. Outdoor-grade open-cell plush and foam cushioning is designed for support and comfort.

Here’s a video of the Aris collection:

2. Mixed Materials and Collections

Creating a visually appealing space is easy – even for the design-challenged – when we mix-and-match materials and furniture collections.

For instance, combining teak wood with aluminum creates a sleek and modern look, while mixing all-weather wicker with iron or ipe wood results in a more traditional look.

Palermo Curved Sectional

This curved Palermo sectional (by Ebel) boasts modern lines, high-back deep-seating and sectional pieces that can be configured to fit and enhance your space.

3. Comfortable Seating

Outdoor furniture must be comfortable enough to relax, socialize, or simply enjoy the fresh air for hours on end.

Monaco Chaise Lounge

The Monaco adjustable chaise lounge (by Ebel) is available in a new, white frame color this season.

These chaise lounges are stackable to four high and are constructed from rust-proof, powder-coated aluminum. Rich, variegated weaves are handwoven onto the frames, creating a beautiful and durable product.

Comfort without cushions!

4. Easy to Store

With the amount of rain we get in the Pacific Northwest, many of us store our outdoor furniture in the garage or shed during winter.

Gardenella glass top dining table and stackable dining chairs

The Gardenella stacking dining chairs (By Telescope) are perfect for sunshiny summer days, and they don’t take up a lot of storage space.

Also new this season at Rich’s: The 36-inch round glass-top dining table with umbrella hole (by Telescope).

5. Multi-Functional

While furniture for dining and relaxing by the fire pit or pool are important, no outdoor space would be complete without a grill.

This 32-inch freestanding SunFire gas grill is so loaded that it will impress the most discriminating of grillers.

The grill features:

  • 740 sq. inches of cooking space
  • 12,000 BTUs per burner
  • Infrared back burner
  • 8mm cooking grates
  • Stainless steel tube burners, which isolate the heat on the burner area
  • 3” built-in temperature gauge
  • Locked-in briquette system, which facilitates even heat distribution (plus, it’s easy to clean)
  • Double-lined hood

Constructed from professional-grade stainless steel and designed with careful precision to ensure optimal airflow and even heating, this grill gives its higher-priced competitors a run for their money in both durability and grilling performance.
