On a cool fall night, create a cozy spot to gather with family and friends. A sectional sofa maximizes your outdoor seating where everyone can enjoy the company and conversation of one another.

An outdoor daybed is the perfect spot to snuggle up during the cooler months. With a comfortable daybed cushion and a handful of throw pillows, grab a blanket and enjoy the changing leaves and crisp air.

3. Enjoy Breezy Dining

Take advantage of the weather by dining outside. Add a freestanding chimney near your table to create a warming center piece. Dining outside in the cooler temps means no pesky bugs floating around!

A fire pit not only creates warmth and adds light for your outdoor enjoyment, it creates a focal piece for your backyard. A fire is always a fun to gather around and roast hotdogs or marshmallows, too.

5. Make a Pillow Swap

Change up of the look of your summer-ready outdoor sofa by adding new pillows in seasonal colors. Start with a neutral base color that can be used year round, then add darker shades of greens and blues or grays paired with orange accents to add a pop.
