1. Bayou Breeze Kunz 120'' Cantilever Umbrella
Did you get your first sunburn of the season while “working” from the balcony? Same and we wish we’d invested in one of these umbrellas. The cantilever design is ideal for small spaces because the stand stays out of the way, rather than becoming the focal point.
3. Bayou Breeze Outdoor Standing Basket Patio Chair With Cushions
Sometimes, you’re better off setting up one big, comfy chair than trying to fit a whole patio set up there—especially if you′re interested in securing some alone time. This cool teardrop-shaped lounger looks like a tranquil spot to for curling up with a good book.
4. Mercury Rowcollingswood 2 Person Seating Group With Cushions
Looking to complete your modern aesthetic, even from the exterior? This weather-resistant wicker set should do the trick. The chic chairs will make you feel like you’re sitting poolside at a fancy resort and with ultra-comfortable foam-filled cushions, you’ll never want to get up. Just keep in mind that the brand recommends storing all three pieces inside when they’re not in use, to keep them looking good as new. High maintenance, but worth it.
7. gracie Oaks Refton Concrete Hanging Planter
Plants instantly pull your decor together, but they can take up a lot of room. That’s why we’re fans of this hanging planter. Secure it to the ceiling (provided part of your balcony has one) or to the wall and your plant baby will have a totally ‘gram-worthy new home.

Outdoor lighting really elevates any patio or balcony, and this lantern makes adding it easy, since its solar power means there's no swagged cord or hard-wiring to deal with. Use as a table centerpiece or cluster a couple together and hang from the eaves.
14. Wrought Studio Virginio Metal 4 Person Seating Set
Both lightweight and sturdy, this set has everything going for it—including good looks that will blend with eclectic and modern style decor.
