Fall just started, but Sunbrella is already thinking about the sunnier days we have to look forward to next year.

Here's what the company says you can expect to see next.


Video of the Day

Warm and Earthy

Forget quiet neutrals — this upcoming spring, it'll be all about earthy energy with vibrant colors like coral, persimmon, and daffodil.

Green and Grounded

Bring the outdoors in with any tone or shade of green. Double down on the theme by using botanical-inspired patterns!

Neutral and Monochromatic

Neutrals are basically iconic, but you can make them feel a little more contemporary by layering different textures in a monochromatic space. Consider blending warm and cool neutrals for a modern edge.

Blue and Foundational

Whether you choose a pastel blue or a bold sapphire, you'll never go wrong with incorporating this versatile color into your home.

Edgy and Classic

Black, white, and gray patterns — from the subdued to the statement — will be a popular design detail in homes this spring. Sunbrella suggests matching them with pops of color (like accent hues here and there) and metallic elements.
