Lake House Outdoor Furniture
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.

It looks gorgeous! Do you also have an outdoor dining area and grill?
so gorgeous! thanks for sharing where you purchased the items, much appreciated. Buying the round planters. Enjoy~
It’s so perfect-was so good before but now it’s more inviting than before if that’s even possible. Looks like a great spot to spend summer. Wish I could visit ;)
Debating an outdoor rug. How often do you care for it? (Sweep it, leaf blower, etc). Do you hang it to dry after a lot of rain? Trying to figure out how much extra maintenance it’ll be! Thank you :)
Do you keep your cushions and pillows out year round? We live in Iowa and that would not work here with the weather. If you do put them up when you are finished, where do you keep them? That is a LOT of cushions.
The whole space looks amazing!!! But the first thing that caught my eye was those planters. They are so gorgeous in the space!!! I love love them!!
I think you also have white Calibrachoa ( the ones that look like mini petunias)
The plant selection looks perfect too!
I could also see those planters in my shady spot with big ferns!
Magazine worthy for sure! You have created the perfect Michigan in summer lounge area. I’ll stop by for a cool beverage on our way to our little cottage up north.
Putting in my reservation for a spot on that couch! So inviting! Love Crate and Barrel – it all looks so beautiful.
it is a gorgeous space … can’t wait to see what you do with the guests cottage beside you! You are one of my favorites!!!!!
As always so beautiful. Honestly Kelly your home needs to be featured in a magazine! This outdoor space is heavenly. Have a wonderful summer enjoying that view!
Hi Kelly your space is truly a resort spot waiting for people to enjoy. I’m sure you will make wonderful memories here for your family. I really love those planters, I do the same trick with my pots but sometimes I plant them up myself I find it gives me some soil therapy 😉
So lovely, so inviting. Could I offer a thought? Have you ever considered painting or staining the concrete? I have had my two concrete ‘pads’ both stained and painted, over the past few years and it has held up well, is easy to keep clean and to me, just looks ‘finished’. It is not a look for everyone and you do have to keep it looking nice but your large rug would cover a lot of the surface. You could even get ‘fancy’ by painting geometric designs…and with your large area, a large diamond pattern may look nice. Anyway, just an idea but of course it is lovely just as it is!
W O W, Kelly, that’s the patio of my dreams! Wishing you and your loved ones the most wonderful, memory-laden, Michigan summer!
The space is so welcoming and inviting! The sphere planters balance everything! I hope you and your family enjoy it throughout the summer!
Everything looks AMAZING, Kelly!
Absolutely beautiful, Kelly! Everything looks perfect as usual! Love it! Crate & Barrel has always been a favorite store of mine!
I also live on a lake in Michigan, and love to see what and how you decorate. You give me ideas, and your patio came out beautiful, congratulations!
It looks great. I do the same thing with my planters – I just bought 5 hanging baskets that we placed in planters – quick and easy.
Ohmygosh Kelly, it looks SO cozy & lovely & inviting!! What an incredible space! <3
