What are the colors for patio furniture for summer 2023?

When it comes to outdoor trends for backyard furniture this summer, we're enjoying warm, earth tones and natural materials that bring a boho vibe to your space. 

When it comes to the perfect colors for patio furniture, you want to pick something that isn't too loud, something that doesn't clash with any building. 

Think carefully before going too dark - dark black or anything too brown can fade into the background, blending into the surrounding vegetation. Dark tones absorb the heat and can be uncomfortable to sit on. 

Be careful when going too light in color too. White is another outdoor furniture color to avoid and can easily get dirty and will need to be regularly cleaned. Light grey, off-white, and taupe are popular outdoor furniture tones. These tones make an excellent backdrop for more vibrant accessories or trending items to shine.
