Though many think of Labor Day as the end of summer, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the outdoor entertaining season — even when the calendar officially turns to fall, on September 22. Prepare for the days of lounging in view of vibrant autumn leaves and crisp evenings on the patio by making a few key adjustments to decorating your outdoor space. From an antique bench that’s perfect for the front porch to a fiery accent that can extend outdoor entertaining even further into fall, here are the key pieces currently available at Viyet that make your favorite open-air space practically seasonless:
Why we love it: The aged painted finish of this bench gives it a rustic feel that’s perfect for fall. You can use it on the porch, or use the bench as a transitional piece for your interior entryway.
Why we love it: Warm metal finishes like brass work beautifully with autumn’s palette of red, yellow, orange, and brown. This brass lantern isn’t wired, making it an easy accent to add to your space in minutes.
Why we love them: Planters and other freestanding containers allow you to extend the gardening season without having to overhaul your landscape. A few hardy fall flowers (like classic mums) arranged in these stately planters bring a little extra color into your fall outdoor space.
Why we love it: Adding architectural flourishes to your outdoor space — like this beautifully aged urn — creates eye-catching interest that will draw the eye year-round (even when your garden is dormant in winter).
Why we love them: Late summer is the perfect time to re-assess the condition of your current outdoor furniture and make any replacements. If your outdoor dining chairs are looking a little too weathered, consider swapping them with these bold all-weather stacking chairs. Their golden hue will add a pop of color to your autumnal outdoor space, but will take on a sunnier feel once next summer arrives.
Why we love it: As the days get shorter, the need for better outdoor lighting becomes a bit more pressing. Get ahead of earlier evening hours with this striking outdoor-safe floor lamp, which allows you to focus your lighting to a conversational grouping or dining table.
Why we love it: The other pressing issue for fall patios? Warmth. This tower-style accent is a sleek alternative to typical fire pits, but is just as cozy.
Why we love them: The simplest way to update your summer outdoor entertaining area is by bringing out a few autumnal accessories. These bold orange bowls are composed of metal “leaves” that nod to the season.
