Best Budget Patio Set

4 Piece Garden Furniture Set

This streamlined four-piece patio set is decidedly modern in style, though its simple, minimalist design works well with a range of decors. The seat is upholstered in a quick-drying, UV-resistant fabric – available in navy and a gray hue with a textured look – and the set includes a tempered glass side table. All pieces feature a black tubular steel frame that is powder coated to prevent rust.

Best Mid-Range Patio Set

Patio furniture set with cushions

This reasonably priced patio furniture set seats four and features tufted cushions covered in durable olefin fabric and finished with piping. Ties secure the cushions to the set’s black powder-coated steel frames, which feature elegantly curved arms and legs.

The set also includes a glass top table and the cushions are available in a choice of peacock blue, beige and bright orange-red pictured.

Best High End Patio Set

4 Piece Aluminum Outdoor Patio Furniture

This sleek and modern patio furniture set can watch like it’s out of your price range, but it’s actually relatively affordable, considering its quality and design.

It features a rust and UV resistant aluminum frame, also available in a stunning white, and deep padded cushions. They’re covered in a breathable mesh fabric and are removable, so you can easily wipe them down.

Best Value Dining Set

6 Piece Patio Dining Set with Umbrella

It’s hard to believe that a six-piece patio set can cost much less than $200, especially one that includes a tilting market umbrella. The breathable fabric of the four folding chairs dries quickly and there is a tempered glass table top, all with rust resistant black powder coated frames.

Keep in mind that the set doesn’t come with an umbrella base to weigh it down, so you’ll need to provide your own to avoid losing your umbrella to gusts of wind.

best loveseat

Norris Wood Loveseat with Cushions

This loveseat is getting lots of love from customers, with an average rating of 4.7 stars from over 950 reviews. Crafted from solid acacia, the natural grain of the hardwood frame gives it a slightly rustic vibe, but the overall look is modern, thanks to the open sides and tailored cushions. The cushions are upholstered in a weather-resistant polyester fabric and the covers are removable and machine washable.

Best modern seating set

Jessamine Chairs and Table

Mid-Century Modern-inspired chairs paired with a tile-covered side table make an unexpected yet delightful combo. The effect is a bit eclectic and adds character and keeps the whole thing from looking too cookie cutter. The legs of all three pieces are made from solid and manufactured wood, and the seats feature weather-resistant cord covering a powder-coated aluminum frame.

Best Bench Set

Solid wood bench and table

This bench and coffee table set is made of solid acacia wood, with a warm honey-colored hue. Details like the herringbone cut and the slight curve of the seat give the pieces a handcrafted look. The table’s slanted legs also add style. The set is weather resistant and it is also available in dark wood and a gray wash finish. Note that the accent pillow pictured here is sold separately.

The best sofa for small spaces

Patio sofa with ottoman

Those short on patio space are sure to love this little sofa and ottoman combo. Its frame is a fairly standard gray resin wicker, but the navy throw pillows with white piping, along with the cute striped accent pillows, make this sectional a standout. Deeply tufted back cushions are another upscale detail. Use the ottoman as a footstool or place a melamine serving tray on top to hold cocktails and snacks.

Best Rustic Seating Set

Set of wooden chairs with cushions

Here’s another affordable patio furniture set that could easily pass for a handcrafted set twice as expensive. It’s also a customer favorite, with over 350 reviews giving it an average rating of 4.8 stars. The pieces have a cozy cabin vibe, especially the side table, but still work with more modern decor. They’re crafted from solid acacia wood, and the white piping accented cushions enhance the overall look.

Best patio set upgrade

4 Piece Garden Furniture Set

Among the key features of this contemporary four-piece patio furniture set is the large center table, which comes with a frosted tempered glass top. The set includes PVC-coated polyester seats that dry quickly and are easy to wipe clean, and powder-coated steel frames with a matte gray finish.

We love the light and airy look of the Grey, but you can’t go wrong with the black frame-black seat option, which is also on sale at the time of this writing.

Best Dining Set Upgrade

patio dining set with umbrella

This dining set is a nice upgrade from our budget pick, featuring high-backed chairs, a 9-foot-wide tilting umbrella with eight steel ribs, and a larger table. Another plus is that the set comes with an umbrella base. The lightweight, aluminum-framed chairs are powder coated and fold for easy storage, and they offer seven recline positions.

If you’ve ever crawled into a daybed like this at an upscale hotel or resort, you know how dreamy they are. Bring that blissful feeling to your backyard patio with this stylish piece from Safavieh, featuring a steel frame wrapped in weather-resistant black resin wicker.

The daybed comes with six cushions, which also come in a gray fabric, and you can also choose between the black base with white cushions pictured here and a gray base and white cushion combo.
