Your Quiet, Relaxing Space For Autumn Days

May 20, 2020

The days are shorter and cooler, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still make the most of our outdoor living areas at home. In fact, Autumn is such a beautiful time to appreciate nature, when days are crisp yet sunny, and we’re surrounded by autumnal colours. If you’re anything like us, you’ll actually love the opportunity to create a cosy and inviting outdoor space that is versatile throughout the seasons and the perfect place to relax with loved ones at home.

Here are our tips for creating a quiet, relaxing outdoor space for autumn days.

Choose the perfect outdoor sofa and chair set

Creating a cosy space starts with the right outdoor lounge furniture. Teak deep seating is ideal as the beautiful colour and texture of the teak framing adds the essence of warmth and is complementary to the colours of the nature that surrounds you. Take inspiration from the earthy palette of autumn and add accents of warm and neutral seasonal colours using knitted throws or cushions. Because teak furniture like our Copenhague outdoor furniture collection is modular and therefore customisable, you can select pieces to perfectly fit your particular outdoor space to create a more intimate and cosy setting.


Add an outdoor heater

Stay warm and comfortable with the addition of a stylish outdoor heater or heat pendant. They create a cosy ambiance, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor area for longer on as many days of the year as possible. Sleek and modern, they are not only practical but also stylish, and will complement any outdoor area without dominating the space.

Nothing creates a more cozy ambiance than a mesmerising fire pit. It’s an instant addition of luxury  and indulgence. These days, there’s no need to worry about the mess and hassle of a wood fire. Gas fire pits are safe, convenient and ultra stylish. A raw concrete exterior offers versatility that works for a range of outdoor styles – whether you are going for a modern, industrial, chic or rustic look. Position your fire pit as the focal point of your outdoor sofa and chair set, or position beautiful relaxing chairs in front of your fire pit for a romantic, intimate setting.

Keep your outdoor essentials nearby

As the weather turns cooler, you’ll want to keep outdoor essentials like warm blankets, candles, cushions and pillows at hand so you can settle in and stay warm. Adding a teak blanket box to your cosy outdoor area is not just convenient storage, it also doubles as an additional piece of furniture as it can be used as seating, or as a table. Teak is the premier choice for outdoor furniture as it is strong, durable and maintains its appearance for many years.


Put your feet up in style

No cosy outdoor area is complete without furniture that allows for indulging in complete relaxation.

An ottoman or patio poof allows you to sit back and put your feet up. Whether it’s relaxing in the afternoon sunshine with a book, enjoying a nightcap under a blanket in the evening, or snuggling up with the family to watch a film on the outdoor TV. It also offers extra seating options for when you want more space for guests.

Don’t let the colder days drive you indoors. With the right investment in outdoor furniture pieces, you can create an outdoor space that acts like a cosy extension of your home, all year round.
