Are you feeling the heat? It’s that time of the year again when we start thinking about outdoor living and entertaining. Whether you have a large backyard, a small balcony, or a rooftop terrace, having comfortable and stylish outdoor lounge furniture is essential for enjoying nature with family and friends. Below we share our favorite summer outdoor picks for 2023:
When designing spaces for budget-conscious clients, Wayfair is a go-to destination for all things furniture. And they have an impressive selection of outdoor furniture. Our favorite pick is the Sol 72 Outdoor Falmouth 6 Piece Rattan Sectional Seating Group with Cushions. It comes in twelve colors and is made from weather-resistant wicker. The set has a sectional, table, and ottoman making it a versatile choice for any outdoor space. ($1,799)
2: West Elm
West Elm is known for its modern, affordably stylish furniture, and their outdoor collection is no exception. Our top pick from West Elm is the Portside Outdoor 3-Piece Sectional. We love that it’s made of moisture-resistant solid mahogany and solid eucalyptus wood with a wire-brushed surface sourced from responsibly managed forests. And it comes with a surprise: the back of the frame has a ledge to hold drinks and all your outdoor lounging goodies! And as of this writing, it’s on sale for $2,877.60.
3: Pottery Barn
Pottery Barn has been a favorite for classic and timeless home decor, and their outdoor furniture is well-constructed and iconic. We love the Black Palmetto All-Weather Wicker Armchair, which features a frame crafted of rustproof welded aluminum and wrapped in all-weather wicker, making it perfect for any outdoor space. Plus, the unexpected color makes this piece a real standout. (Starts at $1,199)
Ready to really relax? Our favorite pick from Article is the Galpin Lounger. From its dreamy aesthetic to its super soft upholstered cover, who wouldn’t want to sink in and take in some sun? Anywhere you put it, Galpin becomes the perfect spot for lounging with a cold drink, a good book, or whatever floats your boat. ($699)
Who says you can’t have big style in a small space? Joybird’s Bondi Outdoor Double Sofa has a minimal footprint that packs maximum design with woven sides and modern, clean lines. It’s unique and affordable at $856.
Time for a Target run! How cute is this Opalhouse Southport Patio Egg Chair? Adorbs! Create your own little oasis; sink into its thick seat, side, and back cushions that encourage you to sit back and relax. Plus, all-weather wicker construction is suitable for outdoor use, and this chair features water- and fade-resistant DuraSeason Fabric™ cushions.
7: Serena & Lily
Get ready to elevate your outdoor living space with the Pacifica Corner Sectional from Serena & Lily. With its modern update to classic wicker furniture, this sectional offers all the beautiful textures of natural, handwoven rattan, made with durable, outdoor-friendly materials that can withstand any weather. Its clean lines and lounge-worthy proportions make it the epitome of casual luxury, so you’ll have the perfect place to relax and unwind. ($7,998)
