Get Back to Nature With Outdoor Recreation & Beach Accessories

There's nothing quite like spending a day outdoors. Make your day in the sun a little more fun when you shop for outdoor recreation & beach accessories from West Elm. Bright colors, playful designs and quality craftsmanship combine, making these items an essential part of your collection.

Choosing the Best Outdoor Recreation & Beach Accessories

With so many different items available within this collection, you really have the freedom to get whimsical with your selections. Choosing the best outdoor & beach accessories for your collection is all about keeping a couple of key things in mind, such as:

  • Function: When you go outside, what are your favorite ways to spend the day? Are you pool-bound, ready to hit the beach, looking for a lush park somewhere or heading out for a weekend of camping? Your answer to this question will help you determine what type of items best suit your needs.
  • Style: Once you determine what types of items you need, consider the look you're trying to achieve. The materials used, colors featured and even the shapes of the items can help you achieve a specific look and feel. Many of these designs come in a variety of different fabrics, colors and finishes, making it easy to customize the look of your new outdoor essentials.
  • Coordinating Items: As you shop, consider that taking your day outside may require multiple items. Pair a beach umbrella with coordinating blankets and towels. Match a picnic blanket to a functional folding table. You can even accessorize your bike with water bottle holders and a convenient basket. As you select coordinating items, make sure they match in both what they are used for and the design itself.

The items showcased throughout this collection don't just make a great addition to your weekend routine; they're also a thoughtful present for anyone on your shopping list. Stock up on a couple of your personal favorites to give to someone for a special occasion or stop to think about the personality of your friend or family member and select items unique to their weekly routine.

West Elm isn't only a great source for small outdoor items; you can also shop for larger outdoor entertaining essentials, including patio lounge furniture, outdoor dining tables and indoor/outdoor area rugs. Have more fun on rainy days by making West Elm your source for indoor games and entertainment as well.
