Lawn benches: Top trends to try in your outdoor space

by Virginia Lindstrom 07/27/2022

Outdoor furniture trends are constantly changing, so the same can be said for garden and lawn benches. Whether you want an outdoor bench to serve a purely utilitarian purpose or be the focal point of your outdoor design, there are plenty of trends to try.

Here is a quick guide to some of the most popular trends in outdoor benches:

Recycled materials

Recycled materials have come to the forefront of outdoor furniture trends, and benches are no exception. If you want to make sustainable choices for your outdoor living space, consider choosing benches made from recycled wood and plastics.

Choose lawn and garden benches made from recycled tropical wood like teak or acacia. For a contemporary aesthetic, modern recycled plastics come in a variety of textures and colors to mimic other materials like wrought iron.

Industrial outdoors

Industrial style has been a trend in interior design for a long time, but these days it’s becoming more prevalent in outdoor furniture as well. Simple and heavy with an emphasis on metals, industrial style benches are perfect for a contemporary porch or patio where you want to create a clean and sophisticated aesthetic.

To make the most of this trend in your outdoor space, opt for black powder coated metal, wrought iron, steel and heavy teak benches. Industrial style benches can be either weathered or pristine, depending on your style preferences.

Perfect pastels

Pastel colors are making waves in outdoor furniture. A pastel bench is the perfect way to bring a bit of subtle color to your patio, lawn or garden. Experiment with different hues such as soft yellow, mint green, pale coral pink and baby blue to try this trend at home.

If you want to add style to your outdoor space, consider these trends in garden and lawn benches. The perfect bench can be a valuable focal point or a beautiful accent to any porch, patio or garden.

Hello and welcome to my website!

My Real Estate sales career began on June 18th 1985 at the age of 29- a wife & mother of 2 young children.

Within the 1st year I closed 5 sales and in January 1986, began my monthly marketing in the Lakewood Village neighborhood in Sunnyvale, where I made my very 1st sale and also took my 1st listing!

Over the last 3 decades, I've helped well over 450 families purchase and or sell their "American Dream".

I specialize in both Lakewood Village in Sunnyvale and the Cambrian area of San Jose, where I've lived for over 20 years. 

I now primarily help sellers with the sale of their property- whether it is their primary residence, or an investment cash out or 1031-Exchange, an Estate Trust sale or a Probate sale of a loved one who's passed away, I have vast knowledge and experience in all these areas of Real Estate.

I began my Real estate career with Century 21 Community Realty in Sunnyvale, until that office closed. Since then, I've been with Re/Max Real Estate Services in Cupertino and recently celebrated 26 years with Re/Max in October 2019.

I pride myself in being the best Real Estate professional I can be with integrity and honor at the forefront of my business career and my clients.
