Talk about a great week away on business reporting from the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina on outdoor lifestyle and why we are seeing the growth in a trend segment called “Let’s Take it Outside”.
It actually all starts with the housing market with requests both in new builds as well as remodeling where outdoor spaces are becoming the focal point for both living and entertaining! Architects as well as interior designers are blurring the lines on where the indoors ends and the outdoors begin!
Lifestyle rooms with glass retrackable accordion doors are opening up the house inviting the indoors…outdoors! Product offerings are more creative than ever allowing consumers trend right choices for their newly expanded living space! We are seeing more consumer requests for updated outdoor furniture, rugs, kitchens, textiles and accent accessories.
Outdoor living spaces today also vary in scale and square footage because the demand for the great outdoors is at an all time high, especially among millennials. Creative outdoor spaces today include rooftop gardening, vertical gardening and all yard gardening, not just a focus on “backyard” gardening. Today we are seeing the collaboration between edible gardening and flowers mixed together in gardens scapes providing the beauty of flowers and the practicality of food!
There are 5 top trends that I see as product growth for the outdoors and I have some great images to share with you in the hopes that I can make your outdoor extension of the indoors an easy transition!
