Trending: Outdoor Rugs

Now I know what you’re thinking, it’s 97 degrees here in the Valley today. Yes, but, it’s not 97 degrees in the rest of the country. While we hybernate during the Summer months, the rest of America lives it up in their backyards and pool decks.

I’ve fallen in love with outdoor rugs and I know you will too.

Take these Grammercy Medallion Rug from Frontgate Contract (available retail, too! check the Internet). It’s hand sheared, has a UV protection. Comes with a tootsie tickling 1/2″ pile and is virtually impervious to weather and foot traffic. Get this, simply “hose-clean” and air dry. Kinda like the Honda Element when it first came out years ago.

This luxurious and elegant area rug is available in 7 sizes, including rounds and three colors, Honey, Black, or Natural. I’m partial to the black, it’s so elegant. But it all depends on the color scheme of your furniture.

Don’t have outdoor furniture? Frontgate has a plethora of yummy traditional and modern styles to choose from. Again, they specialize in contract, but if you like something on their site, I’m sure you can find it at retail.

Like this Venetian Glass-top Italian Bistro dining table with aqua base and shell dining chairs, also in aqua. All come in sand-cast aluminum with a long-lasting powercoat finish. Available in six fade-resistent colors. You can swop out the glass-top for a hand painted tabletop, or event pick another style of chair such as Noveau Chair or Venetian Chair.  This table and chair set are timeless, elegant and so exotic.
