There’s nothing wrong with using outdoor furniture indoors. In many ways, it’s actually a smart move. Pieces created with outside use in mind are typically built to withstand things like wind, moisture and extreme temperatures. So if you have kids or pets, these items should be better suited to hold up to wear-and-tear. Some outdoor items have gotten a bad rap in the past for being not so stylish or crafted from less-than-cozy materials, which made them unfit for inside the home. But I’d say the market has come a long way in the last couple of years. Designs are chicer, and fabrics and fibers are more comfortable than ever.
Most outdoor furniture and furnishings collections drop early spring (unless you live in a year-round warm climate), so you’re not going to find a ton of inventory in stores now. But never fear: IKEA to the rescue! Everyone’s fave Swedish furniture emporium always stocks outdoor specific items that can be utilized indoors. To that point, here are 10, available-now pieces that get their decor jobs done well—and look good doing them—whether indoors or out.
