Beautiful Outdoor Couch - I am looking at designing my backyard. I would like to building the set that is in the picture. How do I go about get information from beginning to end? I know I can contract a contractor, but I would really love to do it myself.

Hi K. Its very easy. start by building a concrete bench, or can be made of wood. Then make the custom seat cushions. The blue tables are Target storage boxes that I upholstered. Be sure to use outdoor fabric for longevity! Good luck.

I'm so sorry that I don't have those details any longer. Dimensions are pretty close to regular chair height.

Are those angular lines just cut into the cement? and how do they get them so close to the edges?

The lines are scored into the cement when the concrete is still wet, so hand tools can be used. Hope this helps.

Where did you get the white custom cushions made? Was it expensive?? What fabric is it?

I'd bet that the fabric on the cushions, bolsters and pillows are Sunbrella...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Color: How to Go for the Bold!
Another exterior idea: An array of outdoor throw pillows in primary colors.
3. Base of Primary Colors. Keeping a simple palette allows you to have fun playing with the shape of the pillows (squares, rectangles, bolsters, etc). Primary colors plus a few punches of orange dominate this throw mix. The designer also has played with different sizes and shapes in the ottoman mix.
4. Bold rainbow. Get an eyeful of color by incorporating deep blue, sunny yellow, happy red, orange and more.
Bright colors give a space instant energy. Throw pillows provide one of the easiest ways to incorporate new color or pattern trends. Check out stores like Target or T.J.Maxx for inexpensive finds, or even peruse a local thrift store for one-of-a-kind accents. Be sure to purchase pillows upholstered in outdoor fabric.
