What is Transitional Outdoor Furniture?

Looking for something not too traditional or not too contemporary? Try Transitional! Watch Gasper Landscape Architect Christina Reeves and myself discuss the transitional furniture at our latest featured project.

Many people are looking to live a little bit more casually and hence are moving away from the formality of traditional styles (think scrolled arms and heavier, darker tones) but they may not be looking to go full-out contemporary either (think minimalist elements with stark contrast) which is why the transitional style has become so popular.

The transitional style is truly a marriage between traditional and contemporary. Transitional outdoor pieces are more streamlined, with smoother shapes and lighter, airy tones. The style also allows for a mixing of different elements and accents. No one wants a matched set anymore, and I like this because it allows me a lot more design freedom which frankly makes for a more interesting collection. I like mixing everything up, using many varied materials such as teak with aluminum or synthetic weaves, and then using the color and tone of the pieces to pull them all together.

Transitional furniture bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary styles, offering a harmonious blend of timeless elegance and modern simplicity. It captures the essence of versatility, allowing you to create a space that feels both familiar and refreshing, classic yet current.
