If you’re ready to take the plunge and graduate from Ikea to tiptoe into mid-range furniture territory, you may already know Blu Dot. The Minneapolis-based company is ideally suited for simple, contemporary aesthetics, showcasing a range of well-made pieces in cool silhouettes and durable materials. And if you’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to get in on this beloved brand, Blu Dot’s newest collection makes a convincing case for right now.

In anticipation of warmer weather, the new, spring-ready line is all about blending the indoors with the outdoors. There are outdoor furniture pieces and weather-resistant throw pillows in a slew of jewel tones one might traditionally expect in a living room. There are plenty of items, like mesh armchairs or wooden benches, that seem suited for both inside seating and patio accessories. Make of it what you will and tailor the pieces to best serve your needs.

Ahead, shop our edit of the new collection. While it doesn’t trickle into Blu Dot stores until February 25, everything is available online right now.

Steel legs juxtaposed with natural oak make for a digestible take on industrial modernism.

Your reading nook needs this floor lamp. Choose the deep “navy green” hue (it’s emerald) and incorporate a hint of luxury into even the smallest of corners.

This is the perfect collection of chairs for color-oriented decorators, and we can’t pick which fun, vibrant shade we love most. Mix and match for a maximalist look or opt for one of the more neutral tones to bring calm to your dining room.

Ottomans are underrated. Part extra seating, part accent table, and part footstool, they are versatile like few other furniture pieces and can bring a pop of color into any space. Blu Dot’s geometric Hecks ottoman is the perfect addition to your living room.

Place this soft velvet bench—we love the dark crimson hue for a bit of drama—in your entryway to anchor the room. We love the dark crimson hue for a bit of drama.

Sage green is the ultimate calming tone. It’s the only hint of color that’s needed to take this simple yet sophisticated circular coffee table to the next level.

The aforementioned outdoor pillows are available in an array of rich hues. Keep them indoors during the colder months, and then whip them out in the spring to imbue your patio with an unexpected dose of color.
