Modern Patio Furniture Designs

Modern patio furniture is designed in the same way as any other type of modern style. The design language is the same so the styles will flow with whatever you put inside the home and the house itself. When you own a home as specific as Modern it’s important to use modern outdoor pieces to match the inside furniture. Matching furniture styles helps create a uniform look and a seamless transition from inside to out.

Imagine you owned an ultra modern home with traditional style patio furniture. Stepping outside would feel disjointed with furniture that’s clearly out of place. Luckily there are lots of designers offering fantastic outdoor furniture with a modern aesthetic.

Think minimalism, solid colors, simple shapes, clean lines, and a muted palette. Although some modern design can actually be quite colorful and use lots of bold colors. Modern patio furniture is a very broad term that includes all sorts of wonderful designs.

Modern outdoor furniture lets you enjoy the outdoors in any season. And you can look great while doing it. Combine your love for the great outdoors, entertaining, and sophisticated modern design in one beautiful package.

Where Modern Outdoor Furniture Works Best

Create an oasis in your own backyard with a patio or deck and some modern furniture. Whether it’s lounge chairs surrounding a pool, casually placed around a fire pit or in a designated dining room setting, modern patio furniture provides the ideal combination of comfort and style.

Use a modern outdoor sofa or daybed if what you want is the same level of comfort as you get indoors. Consider a coffee or side table to hold drinks, a good book or magazines. Side and accent tables work well just about anywhere and consider a bench if you need more seating.

Create a smooth, seamless transition from the house with modern furniture designed for both dry and wet locations. Many modern furniture pieces are just as beautiful as what you’d use inside the home, and as comfortable.

How to Choose the Best Modern Outdoor Furniture

Once you’ve decided what you want is modern furniture for your patio, you can begin refining your choices with these important considerations:

  • Where will you place your modern patio set?

    Decide where exactly you’ll place your new modern outdoor furniture pieces. Knowing if the furniture is used for things like a patio, deck, around a pool, under an arbor or by an outdoor kitchen will help you decide what furniture you need. You can also determine its placement by how you plan to use it. Some chairs are meant for relaxing and some are for dining. A lot of factors go into buying the perfect modern patio set so you should have a plan before you start shopping.

  • What’s the best material for modern outdoor furniture?

    Modern patio furniture is offered in a wide range of materials including metal, wicker, wood, composite and plastic. You should determine the use of your outdoor furniture and the typical weather it’ll see in order to choose the right material for your situation.

    For example, outdoor metal furniture can rust, especially at the bottom where table and chair legs meet the ground. Wood is beautiful but needs some maintenance to keep it looking it’s best. Painted surfaces are great looking too but paint wears and chips over time, especially in extremely hot sun. Plastic is easy to clean but it’s a cheaper look than wood. Wicker’s a fantastic outdoor furniture material but strands can eventually get brittle and break.

    Weight the pros and cons of each material as well as how it looks.

  • What are the best colors and finishes to choose?

    Colors and finishes are up to you and your own personal preferences and style. But there are definitely some colors that are more common with modern patio furniture designs. White, black, gray, creams, real wood and metal are all very popular. Muted hues with occasional splashes of bold solid colors are all considered modern. As you’ll see from the example pictures we’re about to show you, the majority of modern outdoor furniture designs fall into this category.

    Consider coordinating the style and color scheme of your indoor furniture with your outdoor set if what you want is a seamless transition from inside to out. Many modern house design aim for an indoor outdoor feel which is much easier to pull off when the furniture and living spaces flow smoothly.

  • How do I clean my patio furniture?

    Modern outdoor furniture looks beautiful and is made to resist the elements but it’ll eventually have to be cleaned. Dirt, pollen, dust, and spills from using the furniture are all quite common and materials all have different recommended cleaning methods.

    If you’ve got wooden outdoor furniture then cleaning methods will be different than with wood or plastic. And cleaning methods can even vary depending on the type of wood and finish. We’re not going to go over every cleaning method for every material here, but it’s worth mentioning that it’s something to consider. If your a low maintenance kind of person then we wouldn’t recommend wood that needs staining or painting.

    For regular cleanings we recommend simple soapy water. Regular, mild household soap is generally enough. Scrub with a soft sponge if you need it but don’t use anything abrasive.

Modern Patio Furniture That Flows

When your designing the perfect modern patio furniture layout for your backyard make sure it all flows together in a intelligent way. Most people just buy a patio set with a few additional pieces, nothing matches and it’s scattered around the patio without any reason or thought behind it. When you design your patio try to think about how it’ll be used and by who. Create separate outdoor elements that look great by themselves and as a whole. For example, have an area for lounging around the pool, one for sitting around a fire pit, maybe another dining area under a pergola or by the grill.

Each area will be separate and have a unique feel but will still be a part of the whole.

To do this right you’ll probably have to buy modern furniture from different sets. When you mix and match, make sure it all works together. Pick an overall color scheme and stick to it. If your using wood then match wood species, stain and finish. If you’ve got painted furniture then match the paint. Use throw pillows or decorative towels to make things feel more unified.

Pay attention to how you’ll walk from one area to another. Keep a clear walkway so the areas have good flow with nothing in the way. Good Feng Shui can be applied just as easily to your outdoor living spaces as indoors.

Other Considerations

Lots of things interact with your new modern outdoor patio furniture. Things like landscaping, hardscaping, patio material, arbors, grills, and lighting. Consider how each of these elements interacts with your furniture.

Think about not only the look of your furniture but also the material. You’ll notice in the example ahead that the furniture feels tied to the spaces they’re placed in not only in terms of sharing a modern aesthetic but also of function.

Your permanent outdoor structures, like a pergola, pool house, sunroom, outdoor kitchen, deck, fire pit, etc., have to be taken into account when designing a furniture layout.

And don’t forget lighting. Many people do and they regret it as soon as the sun goes down. Designing the perfect spot to sit and relax with an outdoor sofa, chairs and table won’t see much use at night if it’s in total darkness.

Make sure to light up the places you plan to use at night or no one will be using them much.

Modern Outdoor Furniture Pieces

When your designing the perfect modern outdoor furniture set you’ll have a bunch of pieces to choose from. Buy all your patio furniture from a single set or match individual pieces just like you would indoors Here’s a list of the most common.

Modern Outdoor Sofas

Modern patio sofas can be just as stylish and comfortable as the sofas in your living room. They come in a variety or materials which include wicker, metal, wood, plastic or composite. Cushions are where the comfort part comes in and outdoor furniture doesn’t disappoint. Buy something with a soft canvas that resists the elements and dries quickly.

Dress your outdoor sofa up a bit just like you would indoors with colorful throw pillows or a accessorize with a coffee table or some matching chairs.

Modern Outdoor Dining

The right modern patio dining set can make eating outdoors feel special. From a casual summer backyard barbecue to rooftop drinks or alfresco dinner parties.

Go modern with a minimalist dining furniture set in sleek metal, or add warmth with Ipe wood. Whatever your style, make sure to buy an outdoor dining set that’s durable and resistant to the elements. But don’t forget about comfort. Who wants to sit outside and eat a meal while sitting in uncomfortable chairs. Many outdoor dining chairs include plush seat and back cushions that feel just as good or better than what’s indoors.

Modern Outdoor Accessories

Modern outdoor accessories are a great way to personalize your patio furniture.

Add some throw pillows, decorative pillows and blankets, statues, or candles.

Modern patio furniture tends to be on the muted side using lots of neutral solid colors. Accessories can bring energy and color into the design while making the design unique. And they’re easy to change. One of my favorite thing about using accessories is that I can change them so easily. Just by swapping my throw pillows with a different color completely changes the feel of my patio.

Adding an outdoor area rug is a great way to cap off your modern patio furniture design.

Outdoor area rugs are designed to be all weather and mold resistant. They have a much better feel on your feet than a patio and don’t get as hot which can be nice in the middle of summer. They’re also easy to clean with a simple soap and water solution.

Use an outdoor rug with a modern design to match your furniture style.

All areas are unique but share the common thread of gray and wood. They all feel connected and look great together once they inevitably get moved around.
