Infuse Pattern + Color
Add splashes of playful personality throughout your outdoor space with eye-catching patterns and colors. The best way to infuse these touches is through outdoor pillows and cushions, as well as outdoor rugs and drapery. Create visual interest underfoot with a durable and washable rug that's fade- and mildew-resistant. Spruce up a pergola, entryway or blank wall with Ballard Designs' resort-worthy outdoor curtains constructed of extra-thick Sunbrella fabric that feature weighted corners to help prevent billowing. Tie all the patterns and hues together with coordinating throw pillows to make your lounge furniture extra cozy.
Take advantage of warmer weather and move mealtime outside with a beautiful outdoor dining set. Ballard Designs has just the dining table shape to best fit your space, including round, oval, rectangular and square shapes. Choose your new dining furniture in high-quality and durable finishes such as metal, wood, tiled-mosaic and more to blend beautifully with the rest of your decor. With seating to accommodate the whole family, whether it's four people or 12 people, these stunning sets are ideal for breezy alfresco entertaining.
Create Stylish Shade
Make the most out of your outdoor area — and beat the heat — with stylish shade for your deck. Ballard Designs offers a wide selection of umbrellas and stands featuring high-quality outdoor fabrics and durable materials. The Auto-Tilt Umbrella is made from UV-blocking Sunbrella fabric and tilts with a simple turn of the crank. Choose from 29 stunning colors and striped patterns to complement your space. Or, add a touch of whimsy with a scalloped-edge canopy paired with a weatherproof stand that doubles as a side table. For protective shade without blocking the view, opt for an umbrella with an extra-strong cantilever arm.
Accent With Decor
Put the finishing touches on your outdoor space with the addition of stylish outdoor decor. This stunning chinoiserie planter will instantly boost any patio's appeal thanks to its striking white porcelain decorated with floral motifs in blue. If you lack a green thumb, opt for a lush and full faux boxwood ball to fill the planter — rated for up to 10 years of outdoor use! Illuminate and emit a soft glow over your new space with a few strands of globe string lights. Continue the inviting glow of light with a large glass and gold lantern that holds up to three 3" pillar candles. And during the day, the lantern serves double duty as a chic decor piece.
