Believe it or not, summer is almost over — but sprucing up our backyards isn’t out of the equation just yet.
Now’s the time to give your backyard that much-needed refresh with some of the most stunning patio sets, chaise loungers and more we rounded up (trust us, once you see these sets, you’ll be swooning like us).
From wicker armrests that are practically falling apart at the seams to patio tables that look like the weather’s gotten the best of them, it’s just about time.
Conveniently, we ran the gamut of the best online retailers to buy patio furniture from, whether you’re interested in a complete set, a table for entertaining or simply a sectional sofa for soaking in the sunbeams.
Not to mention, a quality gazebo you can buy on Amazon may be something to add to your wishlist ahead of spring. Or, picking up one of our favorite outdoor fire pits and garden hoses can help complete your backyard space.
Take a look at the 12 best places to buy outdoor patio furniture this year, from The Home Depot to Wayfair. There’s nothing quite like being prepared before the new season emerges, either.
We don’t want to say we’re saving the best for last, but with Prime’s two-day shipping, it’s hard not to shop (and love) the patio furniture on Amazon.
The stunning 7-Piece Outdoor Furniture Set by Sunlei ($420, original price: $900) is nearly screaming your name to order it, decked out with its cushiony, homey feel. Another fitting option for your yard is Lausaint Home’s 3-Piece Conversation Set ($300) for a quality, comfortable look and feel.
Also great is Ovios’ Modern Wicker Patio Set ($899) and Tangkula’s 4-Piece Conversation Set with Glass Top Coffee Table ($420) if you’re looking to add some timeless, vibrant charm to your yard.
For some shade, Safavieh’s Elegance Valence Tilt Umbrella ($156, original price: $316) is a white and navy option that’s photogenic and practical, too.
Surprisingly, Walmart’s catalog of patio furniture is just as good as its rollbacks. We instantly fell in love with Vineego’s 7-Piece Wicker Set ($479, original price: $721) that’s one of the most affordable sectional-included bundles we’ve seen.
Also coming in hot is Mainstays’ Brayhills Bistro Set ($174, original price: $225) that’s perfect for quaint outdoor gatherings with your loved one. Plus, the brand’s Sandhill 7-Piece Outdoor Patio Sectional Set ($599) is even more affordable than the one mentioned above (and just as lovely in its ivory nature).
Per the commercials, Wayfair has “just what you need.” Speaking of, its endless selection of patio furniture hits that nail right on its head.
For an on-sale backyard staple at a phenomenal discount, snag the Beachcrest Home 4-Person Seating Group with Cushions ($330, original price: $836). Or, opt for the Gracie Oaks Amaara Bar Serving Cart ($340, original price: $629) if you’d like to serve fresh lemonade or tequila mixers by the pool.
Also, Wayfair is one of our favorite destinations for area rugs — both indoor and outdoor. Shop the Steelside Raya Chevron Rug ($138, original price: $185) or the Andover Mills Heartwood Geometric Rug ($164, original price: $240) for two premier choices.
Known for its southern-inspired sets and seaters, Frontgate is a brand our audience particularly loves. From the Surrey Hill Sofa Set ($5,397, original price: $7,497) to the Baleares Daybed ($3,799, original price: $3,999), the online retailer is a luxe investment that’ll turn heads (and tap into unmatched comfort).
What’s more, Frontgate has divine poolside chaises to lounge and lay, including the Balencia Bronze Chaise Lounges ($999, original price: $1,399). Its Isola Lounge Chair ($735, original price: $799) is one of our favorites.
If you want unbeatable outdoor patio sets shipped to your door, look no further than QVC. The beloved retailer isn’t just for the TV, either; its variety of quality furniture and sets is some of the best we found.
Whether your interest lies in the splurge-worthy Crosley Bradenton 4-Piece Wicker Set ($2,815) or the Teamson Home 2-Piece Patio Chaise Lounger Set ($510), your backyard will be transformed into a backyard oasis soon enough.
Yardbird is a brand that takes the great outdoors seriously. Quite seriously in fact. The Minneapolis-based brand used primarily recycled plastic to construct its elegant, environmentally-friendly furniture. The brand predicts that in 2022, it will use over 200,000 pounds of intercepted ocean plastic in its outdoor furniture.
The furniture arrives in less packaging than many of its luxury competitors and is primarily recyclable when you’re ready to phase it out (not anytime soon, we’re sure). In addition to the better-for-the-planet appeal, Yardbird’s outdoor furniture sets just look really, really good.
Nowhere is that more evident than the brand’s latest Ludlow Outdoor Wicker Furniture Collection (from $440). The all-weather, hand-woven wicker covers oversized, rust-proof aluminum frames with a modern, modular design. Finishing it all off are high-quality, generously stuffed Sunbrella fabric cushions.
Similar to Frontgate, Outer has high-end outdoor patio furniture that is contemporary yet modern — with a bit of a coastal flair.
Our top recommendations include the Wicker Outdoor Loveseat ($2,700), the White Aluminum Outdoor Armchair ($1,400) and the brand-new Teak & Aluminum Outdoor Dining Table & Six Directors’ Chairs ($5,950, original price: $6,700), the latter made of high-grade materials that will last a lifetime.
For more outdoor fit pit suggestions, take a look at our roundup of the best models.
Behold: we found some of the most modern, magazine cover-esque offerings fit for the outdoors at West Elm. Its best-selling Playa Outdoor Reversible Sectional, Lounge Chair & Coffee Table Set ($399 to $1,574) allows you to purchase items a la carte (or, buy together). Plus, the solid eucalyptus and mahogany wood frame are magical.
We also love the Catskill Outdoor Loveseat & Lounge Chair Set ($449 to $639) which seems like the perfect bundle for reading a great summer book. And, if you adore that ultra-modern look, you’ll love the Telluride Outdoor Sofa, Lounge Chair & Concrete Pedestal Coffee Table Set ($599 to $2,069) that’s featured in a rich chocolate brown and mahogany wood.
The Home Shopping Network — dubbed HSN for short — is a phenomenal made-to-order destination to create the outdoor patio setup of your dreams. We can’t stop staring at all the teak and vibrant hybrids characteristic featured in many of its sets.
Specifically, we adore the Linon Jiles Outdoor 4-Piece Chat Seat with Seat Cushions ($910), along with the brand’s 3-Piece Teak Café Set ($310) which is situated for indoor and outdoor use.
If you’re keen on entertaining, you’ll be just as happy as we were when we noticed its Outdoor Adirondack Arm Rest Chair ($200), which comes in a stunning royal blue, a wine red and classic white for you to choose from (or, to mix-and-match for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day alike!)
Not only is The Home Depot the grown-up toy store for tools and tractors but it’s also a wonderful place to pick up fairly priced patio furniture. Take the Hampton Bay Northport 4-Piece Wicker Seating Set ($699), including tan cushions and a coffee table — perfect for entertaining.
Or, perhaps your taste taps more into Southern charm. Then, the Laurel Oaks Collection — with items ranging from $15 to $949 — is perfect for you; choose from this 8-ft. outdoor umbrella ($349) and the five-piece brown steel outdoor seating set ($1,099), the latter coming with a fire pit that’s perfect for s’mores.
Charming and superb for a greenery-flocked yard, Lowe’s vast selection of patio furniture isn’t just home-y but it won’t be hard on your wallet, either.
Shop the Allen + Roth Pointer Ridge 4-Piece Patio Conversation Set ($1,578) for a Hamptons-inspired entertainer that’s a beaut right now. Or, Best Selling Home’s Ottavio Outdoor Daybed ($549) is a pretty great buy to create a Havana from the safe haven of your backyard.
What’s more, Lowe’s is home to some of our other favorites, too, like the new Ovios Vultros Rattan Outdoor Sofa ($648) and the best-selling Style Selections Elliot Creek Rectangle Outdoor Dining Table ($274).
Though we love taking out the red grocery carts (which are some of the smoothest ever, may we add) and taking a good peruse through Target, its patio furniture is something that won’t fit in your wheeler — and that’s why it’s great to order it online.
As the spot for Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia collection, we’re not at all surprised by the beautiful pieces Target has to offer. From the Southport 2-Pack Club Chairs ($450) to the Tropic Island Wide Hammock and Stand ($200), we can’t get enough of its almost bohemian styles.
We also have our eyes on Project 62’s Padded Sling Gravity Patio Chair ($180) for a buy-as-many-as-you-need offering to enhance your poolside experience.
