While there’s nothing like cozying up inside as the weather turns, this year it feels especially fitting to create a comfortable and welcoming patio space for maintaining safe mingling well into the fall season.
Here are some of our patio picks for elevating your outdoor space, whilst staying warm and cozy, of course.
Reminiscent of summer camp-outs, the Endless Summer Fire Bowl ($150) brings the ambience of a wood-burning fire and the warmth to comfortably hang out on the patio on any chilly fall day. homedepot.ca
The made-in-Minnesota furniture manufacturer’s namesake Lollygagger outdoor lounge chair ($720) is ideal for all-year lounging. Loll Designs uses recycled plastic, while it's contemporary design brings a uniqueness to your patio setup. (There’s also built-in bottle opener on the chair, so there’s really no need to leave your seat). eq3.com
The Roma outdoor sofa (from $8,739) is both minimal and spacious, so there's plenty of room for socially-distanced lounging and mingling well into the fall season. The aluminum base and high resistance fabric is durable for all-weather use. boconcept.com
We love the muted sage and clay hues of the porcelain stoneware Colosseo outdoor side table ($1,022). The inverse cone-shaped table could complement any outdoor space, doubling as coffee table and pouf. informinteriors.com
All in the Bag
The Original Slim outdoor beanbag ($400) is water and dirt-repellent, so it's easy to maintain in harsher fall weather. Available in several colours other than the bright citrus-green (if you're into a more neutral palette), the bag can effortlessly complement other patio furnishings—and really, who doesn't love a good beanbag chair? omgitssmall.com
Another patio heater for good measure—and because our outdoor hangouts this fall ultimately depend on them. The standing Hampton Bay outdoor steel propane patio heater ($180) has a three-foot heating radius and a drink tray too, so you can comfortably make the most of dry fall evenings with social bubble. homedepot.ca
