The dark days of winter are almost in the rearview mirror, which means it’s time to think about refreshing your outdoor space. Upgrading or buying new patio furniture is a good place to start, because you’ll always need a comfortable place to sit, plus large pieces, like outdoor sectionals and dining tables, can set the tone for the overall look you’re hoping to achieve. While it may seem like a simple enough task to head to your local furniture store and pick out a few items, getting the right pieces to create your ideal aesthetic can be surprisingly challenging. After all, there’s a fine line between choosing coordinating pieces and picking ones that match too perfectly, which can make your space feel generic or even cold. Then there’s the matter of cost: if you’re on a tight budget, finding pieces that tick all the right boxes when it comes to size, style, and comfort can be even tougher.

The best advice we can offer is to start by purchasing the piece that will occupy the most square footage in your outdoor space—be it a large table or sofa—and build out a collection of smaller accent pieces, like chairs and side tables, to complement it. While your best bet is to buy pieces you love, if you’re not sure which direction to go in style-wise, your best bet is to stick to neutral furniture and add pops of color or pattern in the form of textiles like pillows, throws, and rugs, or accent pieces like planters.

Scroll down to see some of the best patio furniture on the market that’s sure to elevate your outdoor space, regardless of your style or budget.

The Chic Sectional

Nauvoo Resin Wicker Sectional

This sophisticated seven-piece set will instantly upgrade your patio. Its brushed gold legs contrast beautifully with the espresso resin wicker that’s wrapped around a powder-coated aluminum frame. Neatly tailored cushions add polish to complete the look, and are available in more than a dozen hues, including navy and tangerine.


The Outdoor Bar

Libnah 3-Piece Bar Set

Whip up a pitcher of your signature sangria or serve up rounds of mezcal margaritas from this stylish outdoor bar. The slats are crafted solid hardwood acacia with a maple finish and there’s a rust-resistant metal frame powder-coated in dark bronze. The two low-back stools are included and there are two shelves behind the bar to store spirits and mixers.


The Rope Furniture Set

4-Piece Patio Furniture Set

It’s the woven accents on this four-piece set that make it a standout, giving it an upscale look that sets it apart from similar modern options. The all-weather rope that’s woven around the powder-coated aluminum frame adds warmth and texture, which balances well with the tailored cushions. The set can be configured in different layouts and includes a coffee table with angled legs.


The Wooden Dining Table

6-Person Patio Furniture Dining Set

This handsome dining set, crafted from solid acacia wood, features an eye-catching chevron design and has a warm, honey-colored finish. The extendable table has a center hole for an umbrella and all the chairs have armrests, plus the set comes in several sizes and styles. Keep in mind that it needs to be treated with teak oil every two or three months for protection.


The Chic Chaise Set

Teak Dellwood Chaise Lounge Set

These timelessly chic chaise lounges are crafted from solid acacia hardwood, with natural variation in the grain and an elegant teak stain. They offer six reclining positions and come with white cushions finished with piping for added polish. The set is water-resistant and the cushion covers are removable and machine-washable. The set is also available in a gray-stained wood with charcoal gray cushions.


Covered Dining for Six

6-Person Patio Furniture Dining Set with Umbrella

It’s tough to find a large patio dining set that includes an umbrella for less than $1,000, which makes this one an excellent value. The all-weather, rust-resistant set accommodates six, and features resin wicker chairs with removable seat cushions and machine-washable covers, as well as a metal table with a matte powder-coated finish. The 13-foot-wide market umbrella opens with a crank and has a double-sided canopy with steel ribs.


The Contemporary Set

Holderness Patio Furniture Set

This attractive patio furniture quartet has clean lines and a fresh look, with seating that features white cushions set against neutral all-weather wicker. The loveseat and chairs’ rounded edges add a soft touch that pairs well with the charcoal gray powder-coated legs and coffee table. The cushions are removable, but their covers can’t be taken off and thrown in the wash, so you’ll have to stick to spot cleaning if they get dirty.


The Modern Egg Chair

Wellow Baytree Swivel Patio Chair

If you want an accent chair for your patio that packs a serious design punch, your search ends here. This swivel chair is a fresh take on the classic midcentury modern “Egg Chair,” designed by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen in 1958, and it’s a customer favorite, with an average customer rating of 4.7 stars.

It’s sure to be your setup’s centerpiece, featuring all-weather wicker with details wrapped around rust-resistant powder-coated steel, giving it a high-end vintage feel. The removable cushions and toss pillows are also weather-resistant. The frame comes in black, light brown, and the espresso that’s shown, and all frame colors come with white cushions.


The Light and Airy Patio Set

5-Piece Outdoor Patio Furniture Set

Even large outdoor spaces can start to feel cluttered if you load them with heavy pieces of furniture. For a light and airy look that blends seamlessly in any setting, this modern patio set is your best bet. It’s the streamlined white metal frames paired with dove gray cushions that creates the effect, and the large square coffee table is the focal point that pulls it all together.


The Retro Chaise

Alvah Chaise Lounge

This chaise is as chic as they come, with a classic black-and-white striped cushion and a sturdy base crafted from eucalyptus wood. There are two wheels that make it easy to roll the lounge into the shade or sun, and it reclines to five positions so you can read, sip, or nap. The chaise is mildew- and weather-resistant, and the cushion can be spot-cleaned if you spill your iced latte.


The Boho-Chic Patio Set

Byron Patio Furniture Set

If you’re in the market for affordable patio furniture that’ll instantly transform your space, this set is an excellent choice. It resembles natural wicker, but it’s made with a synthetic all-weather material that’s easy to maintain. The white cushions are also weather-resistant, with removable covers that you can throw in the wash. All the pieces—including the glass-top coffee table—have black powder-coated frames and legs, with leveling feet for sturdiness on uneven surfaces.


The Modern Dining Table

Leiker 4-Person Patio Furniture Dining Set

This modern dining set has a substantial presence and will add a cool, urban vibes to your outdoor space. The table and benches feature slated acacia wood tops and chunky, tubular steel legs that are slightly angled and have a black powder-coated finish. There’s also a center hole for a market umbrella hidden underneath a small wooden disk.


The Acapulco-Style Set

Glora 4-Person Patio Furniture Dining Set

Here’s a fun and functional outdoor dining set that’s perfect for a cozy meal or for coffee and the morning paper. It features bright yellow seating that takes cues from traditional Acapulco chairs, but adds cushions for extra comfort.

All the pieces feature powder-coated steel legs and frames and the round table has a smoked tempered glass top accented with the same weatherproof rattan used for the rest of the set. If yellow isn’t your jam but you still want a splash of color, the set also comes in both turquoise and watermelon red, along with black or gray.


The Modern Sofa

Caggiano Outdoor Patio Sofa

This sleek, well-priced patio sofa could easily be mistaken for a designer piece. It features a rust-resistant brushed metal base with curved armrests and cushions in dark gray water-resistant fabric with subtle texture. The cushion covers are removable and machine-washable, and the sofa comes with a bonus metal tray where you can set down a drink or your iPad.


The Wooden Bistro Set

2-Person Bistro Set

Open a bottle of rosé and spend the afternoon relaxing at this beautifully designed bistro table. It’s just the right size for a balcony or small patio, crafted from solid acacia and finished to show the wood’s natural grain.

The table’s parquet-inspired top and curved base give it a distinctive look, and the chairs’ curved legs and simple white seat cushions are undeniably elegant touches. If you want more of a contrast, the set is also available with a gray finish.


The Canopy Daybed

Patio Daybed with Cushions

Nothing adds drama to your outdoor space like a canopied daybed. This one features two separate chaise lounges so you can read while your parter takes a snooze, and draped curtains in cream, dark gray, or blue, with tiebacks for more sun or shade. The wooden frame is crafted from solid acacia, with center legs underneath the base for extra support.


The Contemporary Sectional

All-Weather Wicker Sectional

Signature Design by Ashley

This versatile sectional offers tons of size and configuration options, so it works in both large and small outdoor spaces. You can start with a single three-seater sofa, purchase another if you’re thrilled with the first one, and add a corner piece to connect the two, as shown in the photo. If you’re looking for accent chairs to complement the sectional, there are both swivel and stationary models available. Every piece features all-weather wicker over a rustproof aluminum frame, with removable cushion and covers, and the lovely pattered throw pillows pictured are included.


The Traditional Dining Set

Aonna 6-Person Patio Furniture Dining Set

For an updated take on a traditional outdoor dining set, look no further than this elegant option. Details like tapered table legs with brushed metal feet add a modern touch, and open-weave chair backs keep the set from looking too heavy. Every piece features all-weather wicker in a rich chocolate brown, wrapped around an iron frame. The set gets extra bonus points for having chairs that stack.


The Value Bistro Set

3-Piece Patio Furniture Set

This best-selling three-piece bistro set is a fantastic value, priced at just under $140 at the time of this writing. It includes two chairs and a side table constructed of rustproof powder-coated steel, and the chairs are covered with all-weather rattan. The wide seats’ removable cushions come in gray or cream along with the black shown, plus bright turquoise and a striking shade of red.


For Evenings Around the Fire Pit

Keilson 12-Piece Adirondack Chair Set

With 12 pieces, including ottomans and side tables, this Adirondack chair set gives you plenty of bang for your buck. It’s made of recycled high-density polyethylene, a durable plastic that’s virtually maintenance-free and can be used year-round. It won’t fade or crack and the hardware is all stainless steel.

The chairs’ details are true to the original design, with slatted planks, angled seats, and high backs. We love the look of classic white, but the set also comes in fun colors, including lime green, pink, and lilac, plus several neutral shades.
