Fall Outdoor Furniture
This round woven grass cushion from IKEA makes for the perfect autumn seat
Fall is here, but that doesn't mean you have to pack it in – good outdoor furniture keeps outside festivities alive and well
Come autumn, it's handy to have a spare stash of seats for impromptu deck and garden parties. Because, while the season is a little too chilly to sit on the grass or bare outdoor furniture, it's often still warm enough to gather outside.
You can stack and stash these seats in a corner for casual "low-down" indoor dining too:
- Grass Cushions: We love the inexpensive round woven grass cushions (shown) from Ikea. They're comfy enough for sitting on the floor and sturdy enough to be used on a deck or patio (when the weather is fair only, as they're not waterproof at all).
- Water-resistant Cushions: Outdoor cushions will soon become bargain items at home-décor and garden shops. Consider picking up a half-dozen graphic ones to keep on hand. While often designed for outdoor furniture and lounges, these simple-shaped cushions make great all-weather seats indoors and out. They're usually stackable and resist stains too. Or opt for a few long lounge cushions for group seating around a low Japanese-style indoor-outdoor table.
Exercise Balls: Finally, bright blow-up fitness balls make fun outdoor patio seating and they also work great on damp fall grass!
