I love shopping for outdoor furniture! Patio sets and fun umbrellas (like this pom pom one!) are really exciting to buy because you are picturing outdoor parties and late night hangs on your patio or porch all summer long. Since I’m keeping an eye out for good outdoor pieces, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorites that I’ve found so far!
If you have the space for it, an outdoor patio set is a great way to go to bundle all your pieces together so they match. But smaller porches and decks can get away with a few chairs with some side tables or a coffee table for the main serving area. I’m thinking about putting that hanging chair in our little pavilion area since I really liked having an outdoor hanging chair at our last house.
Items like outdoor pillows can really cozy up a space, and I absolutely love having a fire table incorporated into an outdoor area—they are great for atmosphere even during warm weather and we’ve used ours through the fall and even on Christmas Eve in the past for an outdoor hot chocolate night! This is a pretty one and it’s not too big for smaller areas.
When it comes to the outdoors, don’t forget about lanterns and patio lights to set the mood (I love that these patio lights have a remote!! Taking care of your pieces is also important to be able to use them year after year! Here’s a good post on how to protect your outdoor furniture all year long to keep it at its best! xo. Laura
