Delight in making your outdoor furniture your own by choosing the right color for your personality and setting. Color is one of the easiest ways to add your own personal touch, and—lucky for you—Highwood USA furniture comes in a rainbow of hues!

 

It’s as though you can take a virtual paintbrush to your yard, patio or porch. And it can begin by ordering free product swatches—actual samples that give you a feel for the texture of our material and let you be assured of picking the best color for your space. We even cover the shipping.

 

Here are some of the colors you’ll discover:

Rustic Red

Red is a powerful color that stands out and makes a statement. It is an attractor that beckons you, your family, and your guests to be take a seat and have fun. Our rustic red provides that perfect “pop”.



Federal/Nantucket Blue

Calm and distinguished, blues are the colors of the oceans and the sky. Often associated with depth, stability, and trust, our blues envelop you with peace and serenity, creating a calming vibe for your outdoor oasis.



Whitewash/White

This is the ultimate in neutrality for any setting and a great choice if you would rather let the colors of your cushions and your pillows do the talking. White and off-white are traditional, elegant choices in any environment. They invite a lazy afternoon with an “always freshly painted” look.



Weathered Acorn

Dark and luscious, our Weathered Acorn embraces the natural beauty of your environment. Its dark brown hue evokes stability and reliability, weathered acorn is a great choice for so many spaces and one that will never lose its appeal.



Black

Classy and sophisticated, black is formal, always cool, and it works with many architectural and décor styles. Highwood’s black furniture is inviting and sleek, while providing a bold, yet refined statement that is at home in any season.



Coastal Teak

The word is out. Teak is the new black! Our Coastal Teak is a stately, natural tone that suits a wide range of architectural styles. Always neutral, this color can be spectacular when married with colorful soft furnishings, or it’s a great accent color all by itself.



Advice

Here’s our advice: to select your signature color (or colors), choose a few color chips you think might work from the sample collection. Take them to the outdoor space where your furniture is likely to live and observe how each works with the surroundings, whether vegetation, your patio surface, or the walls of your house. Try this experiment at different times of day to get a feel for the way the finish looks in different kinds of light, too.

Next, consider your preferences and personality. Do you love bright, exciting colors, or are you seeking a calming and quiet environment? Do you like the classics like black, white or teak, or are you going for a more colorful statement? Are you likely to host informal events such as children’s birthday lunches or more formal events like evening cocktail parties with specialty outdoor lighting?

Finally, consider your table setting and accessory colors. You might even involve your family and others who are likely to use your furniture, then go with what feels most right.


So Much to Choose From

Here are just a few examples of how wide your choices can be: our Italica Modern Adirondack 4-piece set, which combines modern, angled lines with a nod to tradition, is currently available in five colors, while our Lehigh 4 foot Porch Swing is comes in your choice of eight, and our Classic Westport Adirondack Chair, meanwhile, gives you nine options!


Final Secret

And here’s the final secret: there is no reason to limit yourself to just one color. You can mix and match—perhaps a dark dining table and colorful chairs, or dark chairs separated by end tables in vibrant hues. Or use seat- and other cushions in contrasting or complementary colors.

 

Whatever you choose, Highwood makes it easy to enjoy the rainbow!
