Today’s round-up is all about the best outdoor patio furniture and where you can buy it online. The other weekend, Chicago almost hit 80º which meant The Boy and I cleaned up outside. While he hosed down the garage, I was out back scrubbing the outdoor patio furniture. This included the famous egg chair rounded up from my Spring Target Studio McGee collection round-up. My exterior decor is anything but snazzy. So while scrubbing away, I decided to really focus on decorating the space.
When we bought this house, I gave it a quick patio makeover. But because we’d never use the space, it wasn’t as functional as I originally thought it would be. And after the whole Biltmore Country Club debacle, The Boy and I started researching in-ground pools…more to come on that topic. But that means additional seating areas – think lounge chairs maybe some deep-seating swivel chairs, a fire table, and an outdoor eating area. If we’re really gonna do this, it’s going to be done right this time. Let’s dig into the outdoor decor that recently caught my eye.
Made In The Midwest
I discovered Lloyd Flanders about 5 years ago and have been a fan ever since. The price point is a bit higher, but what you receive is lifelong durability and craftsmanship. They’ve been around for over 100 years, family-owned, and when your factory is located in the UP of Michigan, you know they understand the effects of cold climates. If you’re on the prowl for modern outdoor furniture, I suggest starting with a couple of favorites – Catalina Collection, Elevation Collection (the rope wrap will add layers of texture to your outdoor decor), and the Fairview porch swing is a winner in my book.
If you want that modern traditional mix, check out the Essence Collection.
Innovative, Sustainable, Luxury Patio Furniture
Outer popped up in my TikTok feed, and it was love at first sight. The one thing I hate doing every night is covering the patio furniture. The mosquitoes are eating me alive and I’m fighting with this oversized dirty tarp and hooking it under the legs of furniture. But, unless you want dirty cushions covered in morning dew, bird poo, and pollen, it’s gotta be done.
Outer came up with their genius OuterShell Cover where the cover is built into the furniture itself and you literally pull it over the back cushion. Boom, done. Plus the cover doubles as a carrying case for storage. Brilliant!
If you head over to their site, be sure to peep their fire pit table that you can cook on and pick up a couple of bug shield blankets (yes, I’ll be living under
seven one of these blankies all summer long).
Comfiest Outdoor Patio Furniture
Telescope is a new to me company that I discovered at High Point Market last fall. At market, there’s a courtyard lounge area, and a swivel glider chair from the Leeward Collection was begging me to rest my weary feet. MOST COMFORTABLE CHAIR EVER! I could have curled up like a cat and taken a nap for days. Like Lloyd Flanders, they too have been in business for over 100 years and family-owned.
The Larssen Collection sofa sectional also caught my eye with its curved back and modern clean lines, and for poolside, how about these lay-flat chaise loungers? Or three of these on a tanning ledge. Yes, please!
Be sure to check out the fabric swatches too because while I was in their showroom in High Point, I spied some beautiful prints to make these chairs pop. A couple of my favorites were Novara Graphite, Climbing Vines, and Oarderly Lines Nautical – oh and Agra Classic is a fun one too (shown above).
Beautifully Designed Patio Furniture
I’ve been shopping at Frontgate for years and their outdoor patio furniture never disappoints. They offer full collections to make decorating easy – the Seton 3-piece sofa set is definitely on my wishlist with its all-weather wicker body and all-weather cushions.
I love it paired with this outdoor coffee table. It pulls apart into 3 teardrop shapes making it an incredibly versatile and hard-working piece. BTDubs, it looks like everything is 15% off and free shipping on outdoor sets.
