No longer is thoughtful decor relegated inside a home’s four walls. Patios and porches are now extensions of the interior, decorated as such with a new generation of stylish outdoor furniture and accessories. Here, interior designer Elissa Grayer of Elissa Grayer Interior Design names her top five products for a perfectly modern outdoor space.

A grey and beige weave highlights the clean modern silhouette, while the Dream Cushion option makes each piece something to sink into.
