Summer is more or less around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about an outdoor refresh. As the weather starts to take a turn for the better, we’ll be craving a space in which we can sit back and unwind. Luckily, West Elm recently launched their summer collection, which also happens to feature collaborations with designers Eric Trine and Dusen Dusen. The result? A fresh take on the standard outdoor furnishings, complete with bold colors and patterns. Take a peek at a few of our favorite picks so far!

Dusen Dusen’s iconic prints are paired with Eric Trine’s signature powder-coated detailing to form a collection that’s all about challenging the typical outdoor setup. The overall finish is pure perfection.

Planters aren’t always the most style-focused or exciting. Enter the Soleil Metal Plant Screen, which not only manages to hold a slew of potted greens, but also lends a major style and color detail to an outdoor space.

Summer calls for bold, bright colors, and this bunch is fit for the bill. Give your outdoor space a well-deserved refresh with items that speak volumes.  

Looking for a more low key change? Pillows are definitely the way to go. We’re swooning over these Dusen Dusen patterned picks, which will add a fresh decorative detail.

The powder-coated composition of this muted side table means that it can live both indoors and out. Now that’s a win. 

Bring a defining element to the standard outdoor setup by opting for planters that feature a unique textural detail. Mix and match, and be sure to curate a grouping that comes in a set of three!

Vibrant blues are making a major style statement this year. From the eye-catching hue of the table to the block-inspired prints on the pillow, we’re all for replicating this stunning scene in our outdoor space.  

Downplay a bold outdoor dining set by pairing the scene with a more subdued backdrop. Think delicate neutrals that come in the form of a jute rug or planters of a subdued color palette.

These Eric Trine Double Octahedron stools are so versatile they can function as a side table, planter, and even a pool-side catch-all. 

Happy entertaining!
