In the Elements
OUR OUTDOOR PIECES TAKE A CUE FROM NATURE
When it comes to the great outdoors, sometimes it’s hard to choose what we want our look to be. When we look outside, there’s plenty of variation—grass, flowers, stone and water. For our 2016 Outdoor Collection, we took a hint from Mother Nature and mixed things up: rather than keeping one cohesive look for our outdoor living area, we’re mixing materials (both natural and man-made) to create a look that’s as unique as the style we’ve set inside.
Our newest collection makes it easy to find the look you want with a combination of all-weather materials, including aluminum, wicker, upholstery and more. New for us this year is Teak, a resilient wood that not only stands up to the elements, but looks better with age. Leave it outside all year round and soon enough your piece will develop a rich patina that highlights the wood’s grain and takes on a metallic sheen.
A trend we’re seeing this year is eco-friendly ways to bring the look of real wood into your space. Our Root Outdoor Coffee Table does just that—made of man-made materials to mimic the look of a genuine tree root, this gives any space a whimsical and natural look.
We’ve also introduced a collection of fire pits to give any outdoor living area the feeling of being around a campfire. Customers can choose to burn firewood or use fuel canisters with lava rocks as filler. However you choose to bring a cozy fire into your space, be sure to have s’mores supplies on hand.
Longer days and warmer nights make us so excited for summer evenings spent out of doors. Whether you’re lounging in the sun, sipping lemonade in the shade or dining at dusk, Arhaus has a way for you to do it in style!
