This sea­son, out­door liv­ing trends em­brace per­son­al­i­sa­tion and healthy liv­ing.

T his sea­son, trends for out­door liv­ing are fol­low­ing the hope­ful, re­fresh­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal cues of Pan­tone’s se­lec­tion for colour of the year, ‘Green­ery’, as well as the cur­rent em­brace of Dan­ish ‘hygge’, or com­fort and plea­sure – but with a per­son­alised twist.

So­fas, chairs, ta­bles and loungers that em­brace sim­ple lines and sculp­tural style will be paired with de­sign clas­sics. Fur­nish­ings are bold and fear­less, and speak to our de­sire to cus­tomise our sur­round­ings. They need to of­fer both style and sub­stance, with nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als such as wicker and rat­tan, as well as alu­minium and tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced ma­te­ri­als that stand the test of time.

Out­door ‘green’ spa­ces will fea­ture en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly and tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced land­scap­ing and recre­ational spa­ces de­signed for over­all sim­plic­ity and value, root­ing 2017’s out­door trends in lush, healthy liv­ing.
