10 Easy Pieces: Indigo Cushions and Pillows

May 17, 2016

Outdoor furniture wears its age like a badge. And why not? Anything that can withstand the onslaught of rain, sun, sleet, and hail has earned its weathered look. Don’t try to hide the scars. Instead, spruce up an old lounge chair with a crisp new pillow. Then lean into it for the first outdoor nap of the season.

In shades of indigo that look just right against a backdrop of greenery, here are ten of our favorite summery pillows and cushions (some covered in weatherproof fabric and others which will need to be brought indoors if it rains).
