It is finally the most perfect time of year to live in Michigan and I could not be happier! My kids have a few weeks left of school and then we will be on the lake all day every day. You may have noticed our old patio furniture was relocated to the cottage next door. I was making way for a fun makeover with Crate and Barrel. I’m so excited to be partnering with Crate and Barrel on our new lake house outdoor furniture today!
Lake House Outdoor Furniture
I still remember registering at Crate and Barrel when the Mr. and I got married a million years ago. One of our first purchases for our apartment in Chicago back in the day was a big Crate and Barrel rug that we bought on Michigan Ave…and then promptly realized we would have to carry all the way home on the train. Their quality furniture and decor has long been a favorite of mine (our gorgeous bedroom nightstands are a recent fave find) and I am thrilled with how our patio turned out.
My goal for the patio was to make it a cozier spot to hang out for our whole family. Before we really only ever sat down here when we were using the old fire pit table. I wanted it to have a living room feeling where we could spend more quality time.
The Abaco Outdoor Sofa was the jumping off point for this design.
I love how comfortable this sofa is – seriously just as cozy as our living room sofa. These are not your typical flimsy outdoor cushions.
The Abaco is also super durable with the wicker base design. The Sunbrella cushions are really easy to care for.
It’s the perfect spot to curl up with a good book and enjoy the sunshine and lake view.
I loved the idea of the sofas facing one another like a living room, but wanted to add some accent seating as well.
The Regatta Grey Wash lounge chairs are the perfect fit.
I like the wood ladder backs as they aren’t too matchy-matchy with the sofas. They coordinate perfectly. I added Sunbrella lumbar pillows in White Sand for extra comfort.
My favorite new item may be the Millstone Coffee table! It looks like concrete, but it’s surprisingly lightweight and easy to move around.
I always love a good outdoor rug to dress up our boring concrete patio. The Hesper Striped Rug grounds the space nicely, and gives it that living room feel.
Of course I had to add a few accessories. These simple Navy Sunbrella pillows are the perfect pop of color out by the lake.
The rope detailing on the Calas Lanterns is so pretty. You may find these inside my house when the summer is over.
Let’s not forget the star of the show – these Sphere planters.
I shared a little sneak peek on my instagram stories the other day, and my inbox about blew up. I’m just as obsessed as you!
They are just so unique and fun. I popped hanging baskets in them that were filled with Bacopa, Verbena, and Lemon Licorice plants.
I’m so happy to have such a comfortable place to spend time with family and friends this summer. I’ll link all the Crate and Barrel products I used below as usual. You can also check out all their outdoor seating options here as well.
