Best Outdoor Patio Furniture: An patio outdoor couch

Summer may be winding down (don't remind us), but there's still plenty of time to savor the great outdoors. In fact, depending on your climate, patio season can really last all year long. To truly appreciate it, though, you’ll need some great seating to park your rear on (we're partial to this Rattaner fire pit set, $950) or an ottoman, like the ones that come with this Leveleve balcony set, $205, to kick your feet up on with a warm beverage in hand. There’s certainly plenty of Amazon patio furniture that will fit the bill, and right now just so happens to be the best time to buy it (see below). But with so many different sets to choose from, there are a variety of points to consider, including your climate , the size of your space, how easy the furniture is to clean and your personal design aesthetic.

When Does Patio Furniture Go on Sale?

Trying to snag the best patio furniture deal? As you can probably guess, shopping at the very beginning of the outdoor season may yield pricey results, which is why the period between July 4 and Labor Day—aka right now—is the best time to buy patio furniture.

  • Pros: weatherproof, sturdy steel frame
  • Cons: difficult to put together
  • Set size: four-piece
  • Material: polyrattan, steel

This little beauty is made of a weatherproof polyethylene rattan with a steel frame, giving it both strength and durability to last beyond the season. We love that it comes with four pieces, including a tea table, two cushioned chairs and one cushioned double chair for less than $200, making it a budget-friendly option for a patio (or even a porch or apartment balcony). The layout also makes the pieces easy to separate if you want to set it up in two smaller areas for conversation.

Best Sectional Patio Furniture

2. Rattaner Sectional Patio Furniture Set


  • Pros: all-weather wicker, anti-rust steel frame, fire pit and furniture covers included
  • Cons: expensive, need to purchase propane tank separately
  • Set Size: five-piece
  • Material: wicker, steel

No time to make an actual fire pit? This five-piece wicker set has you covered. We chose it specifically because it comes with its own lava rock fire pit fueled by propane, so you and your house guests can stay nice and cozy well into fall (especially once you realize how easy it is to turn on and off the electric ignitor). You'll also get a three-seater sofa, two chairs and a loveseat, all of which feature weatherproofing and anti-rust frames, and the furniture covers for each piece are also included.

Best Small Patio Furniture Set

3. Best Choice Products Bistro Patio Furniture Set

Best Choice Products

  • Pros: great for smaller patios, easy to put together, chairs fold up for storage
  • Cons: prone to rust, not as sturdy as some other options
  • Set Size: three-piece
  • Material: polyester, glass, steel

Who says you can't have a full patio setup in a small space? We think this option will be perfect for those with limited outdoor real estate because its two simple chairs fold up easily when they're not in use. At 28 inches tall, the small textured glass table is also a great height for enjoying a morning coffee solo or a meal with a partner in the sunshine. The steel frames of these pieces come powder-coated to make them more resistant to wear and tear and the chairs have a breathable, water-repellent polyester mesh fabric.

Best Large Patio Furniture Set

4. Udpatio Conversation Patio Furniture Set


  • Pros: multiple waterproof wrap covers, comes with a fire pit, fastening strips on covers
  • Cons: sits sit low to the ground, arrives in multiple boxes
  • Set Size: eight-piece
  • Material: polyrattan

With a total of eight modular pieces, we like the freedom this one allows for, since the whole collection can be arranged however you see fit. The cushions connect to the polyrattan seats via fastening strips to prevent sliding, and they're made with water-resistant fabric that's meant to last, rain or shine. There's a waterproof cover with adjustable hem cords, too, so you can keep this grouping nice, even in inclement weather.

Best Basic Patio Furniture

5. Grand Patio Folding Patio Furniture Set

Grand Patio

  • Pros: easy to fold and store, convenient for small spaces, budget-friendly
  • Cons: not as comfortable as others
  • Set Size: three-piece
  • Material: steel

Don’t mind skipping the frills? This three-piece patio furniture set may be bare bones, but it will get the job done without costing you a pretty penny. It comes in a variety of colors and can be ordered with or without cushions (add an extra $30 if you choose to get them). Its small table and two chairs are super easy to fold up, giving you plenty of extra space when the set is not in use, and it’s made of rust-resistant steel to boot.

  • Pros: space-saving, removable covers, easy to put together
  • Cons: cheap cushion fabric
  • Set Size: five-piece
  • Material: polyrattan

This five-piece balcony furniture set comes complete with two chairs, two nesting ottomans, which are designed to slide under the seats and save (precious) space and a small table. And don’t worry about bringing anything inside when it rains: This set ticks the boxes of being both water- and UV-resistant. If the comfy cushions get dirty, just remove the covers and give ‘em a good wash. Alternately, you could replace them altogether—something Amazon shoppers recommend on account of the "cheap" fabric. Advised one expert: "My suggestion is to get different covers if you can find them."

Best Rocking Patio Furniture

7. Harlie & Stone Rocker Patio Furniture Set

Harlie & Stone

  • Pros: chairs rock and swivel, eco-friendly fabric, extra-thick cushions
  • Cons: requires assembling
  • Set Size: three-piece
  • Material: polyrattan, steel, olefin

Let's skip to the good part: The two included patio chairs in this three-piece set can rock back and forth. Not only that, but they swivel by a full 360 degrees. The cushions of this baby are built for comfort, with extra-thick olefin that's reportedly greener than cotton, wool, silk or rayon, and we also like that they're reportedly stain-resistant and durable. The small side table, meanwhile, is just the right size for holding a few glasses or coffee mugs, a book, reading glasses or even a decorative plant.

Best L-Shaped Patio Furniture

8. Best Choice Products L-Shaped Patio Furniture Set

Best Choice Products

  • Pros: detachable lounger, all-weather wicker, thick cushions
  • Cons: assembly may be difficult
  • Set Size: two-piece
  • Material: polyrattan, steel

L-shaped furniture is nice because it gives you the option to kick back with your feet up when you want to bask in the sun or to sit normally on the couch part when you're chatting with guests. This set makes an "L" with its detachable lounger, which allows you to convert this grouping into a three-person loveseat if you so choose. There's a side table with a tempered glass top to rest your belongings on, too.

Most Unique Patio Furniture

9. Giantex Patio Furniture Set


  • Pros: space-saving design, removable cushions
  • Cons: may be too small for some adults
  • Set Size: three-piece
  • Materials: polyrattan, steel, glass

Want to enjoy a romantic dinner à deux out on your patio, deck or balcony? This adorable three-piece includes a 20-inch-wide glass-top table that's just the right size for a meal under the stars. Its two chairs can uniquely be tucked underneath the table to save space when needed, and the seat cushions are removable (you know, for easy cleaning). We also like that the rear legs are slightly curved, so they’ll sit comfortably more on grass and lawns (no wobbling here!).

Best Affordable Patio Furniture

10. Greesum Conversation Patio Furniture Set


  • Pros: dries off quickly, sleek style, budget-friendly, included tool kit
  • Cons: hard to assemble
  • Set Size: four-piece
  • Material: steel, textilene fabric

Sometimes, you just want something that looks nice that won't break the bank. That's where this Greesum set comes in. It's sized such that it will fit in some small spaces but won't look out of place on larger decks or patios. The steel frames feature an anti-rust coating and you'll get two chairs, a loveseat and the glass coffee table. For its price, it's a nice setup that will give any outdoor space a more homey feel—especially with a cozy throw blanket draped over its arms. As a little added bonus, we love that the company throws in a little tool kit for assembly.

Best Garden Patio Furniture

11. Alpine Garden Furniture Set

  • Pros: aesthetically pleasing, study material, easy to fold for storage
  • Cons: small size, less comfortable than others
  • Set Size: three-piece
  • Material: steel, ceramic tiles

This little garden set, which features a whimsical mosaic made of strong ceramic tile, includes a small table and a set of chairs crafted from super durable, weather-resistant metal. It’s practically begging to be placed in your backyard next to a rose garden, where you and your favorite person can share a cup of tea on a gorgeous summer day. The chairs can be tucked away for storage and it comes with a one-year warranty in case anything should go awry.

Best Patio Bar

12. FDW Patio Bar Set


  • Pros: UV-resistant, sturdy, high-quality, provides storage space, handwoven
  • Cons: difficult to put together, screws may not align, may be smaller than expected
  • Set Size: three-piece set
  • Material: polyrattan, polyester, metal, tempered glass

Poolside drinks, anyone? This three-piece patio bar set is made with durable handwoven wicker and has an anti-UV finish that will keep it looking far pricer than the $100 you spent on it. The two shelves provide storage, and Amazon shoppers say it's super sturdy once you finally get the thing built—you'll want to approach it with patience however, as most cite the process as taking over an hour with a struggle to get the screws aligned. Still, as one writes, "100 percent worth it!"

Best Metal Patio Furniture

13. Titimo Dining Patio Furniture Set


  • Pros: sturdy, rust-resistant, high-quality, adjustable feet
  • Cons: screws may be stripped
  • Set Size: seven-piece
  • Material: cast aluminum

Cast aluminum is known for its high strength-to-weight ratio and resistance against corrosion, so it's no surprise that we chose this dining set as a favorite. With an antique-inspired design cast in stunning bronze cast-aluminum, it comes with four chairs and a round or square table. The chairs were built to contour to your frame, right down to their curved armrests, and the feet are adjustable to help ward off wobbliness.

Best Wood Patio Furniture

14. Best Choice Products Wooden Patio Furniture Set

Best Choice Products

  • Pros: real wood, water resistant, stain resistant, no assembly
  • Cons: can be uncomfortable
  • Set Size: three-piece
  • Material: acacia wood

For anyone who appreciates the simple things in life, there's this three-piece wooden bistro set with easily foldable (and portable) chairs and a table. It set comes fully assembled, so you can enjoy it right out of the box, and its natural acacia wood frame should be plenty warp- and fungus-resistant. Still, the company says you'll want to take special care of it to keep it looking its best, shielding it from extreme heat or cold and not allowing it to get fully soaked, despite its water-resistance.

Best Conversation Patio Furniture

15. Best Choice Products Conversation Patio Furniture Set

Best Choice Products

  • Pros: included protective cover, room for a large group
  • Cons: cushion covers are not removable
  • Set Size: seven-piece
  • Material: polyrattan

You know the saying "the more the merrier?" This set embodies it. With room for seven people to enjoy breakfast, shoot the breeze or stargaze, this three-person sofa with a large dining table and matching stools can be set up however you please. The 52-inch table is large enough for several settings, and each and every piece is made from weather-resistant wicker. It even comes with a fitted protective fabric cover to protect it from the sun, which is a huge bonus.

Easiest Patio Furniture to Assemble

16. Wisteria Lane Patio Furniture

Wisteria Lane

  • Pros: comfortable, removable cushion covers, easy to assemble, recyclable
  • Cons: chairs sit low to the ground, no labels on instructions, cushion colors may be different in person, chairs may be shorter than expected
  • Set Size: four-piece
  • Material: polyrattan, steel

Like many of the sets on this list, this four-piece is built with a weather-friendly galvanized steel frame and handwoven PE rattan that's both durable and sleek. Unlike the other sets on this list, however, it's one of the few shoppers say is *actually* easy to assemble, even without labels on the instructions. (Don't worry—there's a YouTube for that.) Its cushion covers are removable for easy washing, meaning your kid's ice cream disaster won't be the end of the world, and we love that the PE rattan is recyclable, according to the company.

Best Oversized Patio Furniture

17. Gotland Sectional Patio Furniture Set


  • Pros: lightweight, easy to clean, can be rearranged, rust-resistant
  • Cons: sits low to the ground, cushions can get saggy
  • Set Size: seven-piece
  • Material: polyrattan, galvanized steel

Sure, this bright, bold set that comes in fun shades of turquoise or red as well as several more muted options, pictured above, is on the larger side, but that's because it really has it all. You'll get four middle chairs, two corner chairs and a tempered glass table. Everything is made from durable, synthetic polyrattan wicker that's reportedly all-weather resistant, easy to clean and lightweight, plus, its galvanized steel frame is reportedly rust-resistant.

Most Comfortable Patio Furniture

18. Devoko Garden Patio Furniture Set


  • Pros: comfortable, good value
  • Cons: instructions may be confusing, smaller than average
  • Set Size: three-piece
  • Materials: polyrattan

While the jury's still out about whether or not the assembly for this three-piece design is a breeze or requires a little extra help, a 4.4-star collective rating from more than 13,000 signals that it's likely worth the effort. "Comfortable" was a word that came up often among Amazon shoppers (no doubt thanks to the sponge-filled removable cushions) and the waterproof PE rattan collection features a durable steel frame that's likely to weather a storm—or twelve.

Best Modern Patio Furniture

19. Nuu Garden Bistro Patio Furniture Set

Nuu Garden

  • Pros: ergonomic design, modern look
  • Cons: can be wobbly
  • Set Size: three-piece
  • Materials: polyrattan, metal

With its bright finish and a modern, all-weather woven rope design, this bistro set stands out among a sea of boring blacks and browns. The two chairs come with thick padded cushions that are covered in water-resistant polyester, along with a matching round café table. More than just looking cool, however, Ttose with sore backs and aching joints will appreciate the ergonomic design of the chairs, along with the vented back that helps promote air circulation (something that's sure to come in handy through these dog days of the season).

Best Patio Dining Furniture

20. Sophia & William Dining Patio Furniture Set

Sophia & William

  • Pros: chairs swivel and rock, ergonomic design, weather-resistant
  • Cons: chairs and table arrive in separate shipments
  • Set Size: five-piece
  • Material: textilene fabric, metal

We love that the four chairs included in this set can swivel on their bases, allowing parents to keep an eye on their kids as they play in the yard without having to crane their necks. The square table is paired with four weather-resistant chairs with breathable textilene, all of which come on sturdy metal frames with powder coating. The tabletop also has an umbrella hole for optional shade.

What to Look for in Amazon Patio Furniture

If you live in a wet climate, you’ll need to account for things such as rain and moisture, which bring along the possibility of mold and mildew. Some materials can also warp after drying, thus losing their shape. Metal and iron are sturdy and will hold up against inclement weather—just note that there’s a possibility of rust or corrosion if they aren't coated or properly protected.

On the other hand, if you live somewhere that's always sunny or has high humidity, you'll want to be sure to opt for materials that won't be damaged or fade from exposure to UV rays or extreme temperature changes, like wood, which can expand and contract and potentially crack. A better choice might be polyrattan, aka polyethylene rattan or poly wicker. Unlike natural wicker (which can quickly deteriorate when exposed to the elements) polyrattan is a great material for weather-resistance with a lightweight design that’s also relatively easy to clean.

Live somewhere that’s prone to high winds? You'll want to opt for a heavy, sturdy piece that won't fly away or topple over when there's a big gust, like one made of steel or wood.

We chose the sets below based on our extensive research of the elements above. Regardless of which style you choose, however, you’ll want to keep in mind that it's always a good idea to get covers for your outdoor furniture to keep it looking its best.

How to Clean Patio Furniture

While different types of patio furniture require different types of maintenance, there are a few general cleaning rules you should follow to keep your outdoor space looking spiffy. According to Merry Maids, you’ll need to grab some dishwashing liquid, a bucket ($20), warm water, a commercial cleaner that's safe for the material you’re cleaning, microfiber cloths ($15) and a soft-bristled brush ($8). 

The site recommends you first spray your furniture off using a hose. From there, you'll want to mix ¼ cup of dishwashing liquid in a large bucket of warm water before dampening your cloth with the mixture and wiping your furniture down. That's it! You can let it air dry, so it should be all set.

If that doesn't do the trick, you might need something stronger (ie, a commercial product that’s safe for cleaning your outdoor furniture). Follow the instructions on the product’s packaging, and if it's really ground in there, you can use the soft-bristled brush on it for a good spot clean.

As for those pillows, different material requires different care, too: For instance, vinyl cushions will require a dishwashing liquid, a bucket, warm water and microfiber cloths, while machine-washable cushions just need to be tossed in the wash. In general, Merry Maids suggests using Better Life Stain and Odor Eliminator ($11) to remove stains (after performing a patch test, of course).
