When the weather changes from dirty to sunny, your backyard and patio are suddenly completely new rooms to decorate. Decorating your outdoor space can be a chore. You want comfortable, reliable furniture that can withstand the elements and look good at the same time. So why not take the same considerations when shopping for your home? We’re talking high-quality, design-oriented brands that use non-earth-destroying materials. And that will take years.
If all that sounds appealing, these are some of our best places to buy outdoor furniture – from alfresco dining to poolside lounging you may never want to leave.

Terry Lin and Jiake Liu launched their sustainable DTC outdoor furnishing company, Outer, in 2019 with a super weatherproof wicker collection made from recycled plastic. Launched in Spring 2021, the contemporary teak line featuring sleek, modular seating made from Forest Stewardship Council-certified wood, was followed by a $50 million Series B, to further their showroom and eco-friendly manufacturing efforts, announced in Sept. last year.

We turn to LA-based Lulu and Georgia for online home furnishings that feel cool, farmhouse and bohemian. The seasonal selection doesn’t disappoint, with stylish designs in clean neutral tones with luxurious details and richly textured woods.

Just in time for Summer 2022, e-design platform Havenly has acquired custom DTC site The Inside and together they provide an inspired grouping for your outdoor living. We love the Cabana Chair and the ability to choose your own adventure from the company’s plethora of traditional to trendy prints—more than 100—created using a water-free digital printing process.

The fast shipping of the item is available for your patio or patio in their robust outdoor area. We love the 9-year-old DTC company for its affordability — dining room chairs start at $89 — and style versatility, whether your dream outdoor space is bohemian rattan or based on mid-century modern design.
URBN’s brother with green thumb offers a whimsical selection of outdoor lounge and dining furniture, in addition to their plant-based products and garden tools. We love playful, beautiful pieces, such as the Havana Wicker and Teak Armless chair, a cheerful, deep-rooted lounger made of recyclable synthetic rattan and preserved wood.

You’ll want to dive into almost every piece in Arhaus’s outdoor seating and lounge collection. The line has the same cushions that are so deep you can get lost in them as the indoor sections and sofas, for the plushest poolside seat around. We particularly liked the Porto Outdoor Chaise, an over-the-top upholstered lounge inspired by the Portuguese coastline, and the Andaz, its nautical-striped sister.
