FDW Patio Furniture Set
Let's start with an inviting place to sit and have a frozen margarita. This set from FDW is durable, and the cushions are dressed in a UV-resistant fabric that'll withstand the elements. It also makes cleaning up that spilled cocktail a breeze. Just remember to take in your cushions whenever you can to extend their life.
This happy customer says: "I was looking for something inexpensive but good quality and this was it for me. I’m excited and can’t wait to relax on my patio when it warms up."
Shine Company Adirondack Chair, Natural
When the weather gets warm, it's hard to resist the classic design of the Adirondack chair. This one is crafted with durable cedar wood which has a natural resistance to moisture. It has a natural finish to showcase the wood's natural beauty, but you can choose from ten other colors. Right now, it's $111, down from $172 — that's a 35% savings!
"I don't want to get up!" wrote one backyard lounger. "I LOVE everything about this chair. I crave, crave, crave comfort—especially when lounging with my husband in our backyard oasis, sipping margaritas, and watching dogs romping wildly through the grass."
Christopher Knight Home Acacia Wood Side Table
If you already have outdoor seating, you might want to grab a side table. This Acacia Wood Side Table makes a great place to put your essentials — your book, some sunscreen and maybe a frozen piña colada. And right now you can get it for $44, down from $102 — that's a whopping 57% off!
"Got this for my balcony," wrote a satisfied city dweller. "It was easy to put together and is a sturdy little table, exactly what I wanted. This is its second summer outside; every spring I give it a good going over with mineral oil, which leaves it looking as good as new!"
Alpine Bistro Sett
This elegant bistro set instantly brightens small spaces like a porch, balcony or courtyard. The set comes with three lightweight and foldable pieces that store easily in the winter. We love the Euro cafe feel — you can enjoy al fresco dining or just a cup of coffee and conversation. The best part: no assembly required.
"I LOVE it!" shared one joyful shopper. "The color is gorgeous as is the cutout leaf decorations on the table top and chairs. The chairs are nice and sturdy and comfortable to sit on. The tabletop is wide enough to eat at, to put a laptop or in my case, to put my tabletop easel and paint."
Nicole Miller Indoor/Outdoor Rug
Don't forget the rug — it's a forgotten plane outdoors, but it grounds the space like nothing else can, making a homey atmosphere that evokes real outdoor living. This 8'x10' New York Patio Country Rug by Nicole Miller is a great option, and it's on sale for 33 percent off.
This outdoorswoman agrees: "Can’t say enough great things about this rug! This is a really tough and durable woven material and has been rained on several times and dries fairly quickly. It definitely pulls our entire outdoor space together and is very sleek."
Best Choice Products 5-Piece Modular Outdoor Sectional Set
We love the preppy nautical vibe of this outdoor sectional set. It comes with a three-sectioned sofa, an ottoman, two pillows and a coffee table — all for $420. That's 130 bucks off the original price, which is already a steal. The washable wicker is tightly woven around a sturdy, powder-coated steel frame. The ottoman can be pushed against the sofa to create a chaise — or configure the pieces however you choose! The weather-resistant cushion covers are removable so you can toss them in the wash, which is a huge convenience.
Says a happy camper: "I love it. Fits perfectly on my small porch. Cushions are fine, but I am a big girl so added extra for comfort. Very sturdy but took about four hours to put together — instructions were thorough and easy to understand."
Kante Lightweight Concrete Modern Planters (set of 2)
Long and low, these planters are great for creating separate areas or lining your deck so no one takes a dive off the edge — cue the aforementioned margaritas. Landscaping is a big reason why we venture outside, so it deserves special treatment.
These concrete planters provide a clean, modern look that allows your plants to steal the show. Fill with snake plants or grasses for a tall, refined look. Made of concrete and weather-resistant fiberglass, these are durable and stylish. This set contains two sizes: 31" wide by 15" deep and high, and 23" wide by 12" deep and high. Save nearly 30 bucks right now!
A concrete convert says, "I was skeptical that these planters would be actual concrete based on the price, but I am glad to say I was wrong! These planters are amazing — very clean, simple look with a beautiful finish. Very light, but they are legit made out of fiberglass mesh reinforced concrete. The planters are exactly as pictured and have a 1” hole drilled in center of the bottom for drainage. They also come with a rubber plug if you do not want the hole."
Addlon 48 FT Outdoor String Lights
Last but not least, lighting. You know how pretty it looks when you pass by those well-lit bistros where everyone is dining al fresco? Good lighting makes a huge impact, and your garden patio should be no different. Illuminate the night with the warm ambient glow of string lights — the same kind the restaurants use.
They'll create a festive vibe and extend your time outdoors as you enjoy the fresh air. A No. 1 bestseller at Amazon, the 48-foot Addlon lights are on sale for just $36 with the on-page coupon. Features we love: You can link up to five strands, they're weatherproof and commercial grade, the standard E26 sockets make the bulbs easy to replace and they're even dimmer compatible, for true ambiance. At this price, you can afford to buy multiples to string together.
Raves one of 16,000 thrilled reviewers: "They make my backyard look like an oasis!" Says another: "These are the perfect outdoor string lights. The price is right and the light set is well made and appears heavy duty. The lights bulbs are a great size...We have put them along our fence and on our trellises. We live in Florida and our weather can be very hot and often very wet, and our lights have never failed in the past three months."
