As someone who spent years working for luxury interior designers, I never expected to be enamored by Walmart’s home collection—and yet, here I am. For those who don’t know, the retailer has seriously stepped up its game, thanks to designer collaborations with Drew Barrymore, My Texas House and Dave & Jenny Marrs from HGTV's "Fixer to Fabulous." Every piece I’ve seen is not only gorgeously made with high-quality materials, but they nail the latest summer trends (read: tenniscore). Think a $400 slipcovered sofa that rivals similar options starting at $5k. Or a Terrazzo propane fire pit and ornate gold mirror that look like they’ve just dropped from Anthropologie’s latest collection. And of course, in true Walmart fashion, everything is budget-friendly with five-piece outdoor dining sets that come in at under $750. Here, find 10 items you’ll definitely want to snag before everything goes out of stock.

Looking to give your patio a pick-me-up? This outdoor rug—available as a 7'x10' or 5'x7'—showcases the best of traditional meets contemporary design. While the floral motifs are accented by a Southwestern-style border, everything is brought together by soothing blue hues. It’s also made from a sturdy blend of polypropylene and polyester, so it's soft underfoot while tough enough to handle the elements. And don't worry about keeping it clean; the fabric is engineered to be fade- and stain-resistant (just give it spray with a garden hose to rinse away any debris).  

Designed by Dave and Jenny Marrs, stars of HGTV's "Fixer to Fabulous," this sofa brings the couple’s signature blend of artisanal craftsmanship to a classic slipcovered design. It features a timeless silhouette with a pocket coil seat and a fiber back, so it’s as comfortable as it is beautiful, and everything is made from durable materials that are built to last. Take it from one enthusiastic Walmart reviewer, who writes: “First off, fabric quality is 10/10 soft, comfortable and easy to clean…put together in 30 minutes or less. It's fluffed up quickly and looks great. I was looking at [similar] couches with a 5k price tag, and this looks exactly like it! I'm so unbelievably happy with this purchase.” 

Best Comforter Set

3. Better Homes & Gardens Gauze Comforter Set


With a gauze construction that looks and feels light as a feather, this three-piece comforter set has ‘laid-back summer’ written in its design. It includes a comforter and two pillow shams with envelope closures—and despite the lightweight crinkled fabric, it’s stuffed with 100 percent polyester fill, so it’s thick enough for cooler temperatures. It’s also easy to care for, and many reviewers say it’s sturdy enough to hold up in the wash. 

At just under $750, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a higher-quality outdoor dining set (with as many clever features) as this one. It not only includes a sectional that seats up to six people—and two cushioned ottomans—but it also comes with an embossed woodgrain coffee table that stands 27 inches high (so it can double as a dining table). Plus, the premium foam cushions are built to last with durable foam cores, and the covers are Scotchgard-treated to repel water and stains. It basically has everything you need to create the perfect outdoor dining space, including machine-washable covers that’ll keep it looking fresh. 

Best Throw Pillow Cover

5. My Texas House Maisie Decorative Pillow Cover


ICYMI, tenniscore is the theme of this year’s backyard trends, and there’s no better (or, um, more affordable) way to bring the look home than with a pillow designed by My Texas House (a brand that’s known for preppy pastels). The 14 x 20-inch rectangular cover has a zippered closure, making it easy to fill with an insert, and it features playful tassels on each corner with a woven border for tone-on-tone texture. The front is also made of a durable cotton-rayon blend while the back is 100 percent cotton duck (and many reviewers say it holds up in the wash, despite the label instructing to ‘spot-clean only’). 

Best Fire Pit

6. Cosiest Terrazzo Propane Fire Pit


This ultra-chic fire pit features a terrazzo white faux stone base and a 40,000 BTU stainless steel burner, making it the perfect addition to larger patios or decks. It comes with natural lava rocks that help spread the heat evenly and uses clean-burning propane, so there’s no need to worry about wood logs or pellets. You can also easily control the flame with the auto-ignition device—and it includes a waterproof cover to keep it clean when you’re not using it. Measuring 16.7 inches high and 29.3 inches in diameter, the smallest size is a great fit for most patio setups, and it’s also available in larger sizes up to 42 inches wide. (Just remember, the propane tank isn't included, but you can get a matching tank table to keep things looking neat.)

With a gorgeous, blue-striped design that fits seamlessly with contemporary and classic interiors, this 12-piece set will wow guests at the next backyard BBQ. First, it includes four dinner plates (10.5 inches), four salad plates (8.5 inches), and four all-purpose bowls (6 inches). But it’s also made from durable stoneware—so it’ll last season after season—and it’s dishwasher- and microwave-safe for easy clean-up and reheating

Best Travel Blender

8. Beautiful Personal Blender Set


This compact blender features a powerful 285-watt motor and a stainless steel emulsifying blade system that can effortlessly handle vegetables and frozen fruits. It comes with a 16 oz To-Go Travel cup, complete with a handle and signature No Drippy Sippy flexible straw, plus a twist-off lid (so you can take your smoothies anywhere). The blender also includes various BPA-free, dishwasher-safe attachments, including grinding blades and cups, and storage lids, making it versatile and easy to clean. Not to mention that it features Drew Barrymore’s signature elegant matte colors, so it looks stunning on your kitchen counter.

Best Drinkware Set

9. Better Homes & Garden Tritan Tumbler Set


Perfect for summer soirees, these BPA-free tumblers are dishwasher safe (top rack only) and shatterproof, making them great for outdoor parties. It includes eight 21-ounce tumblers in a vibrant teal color (also available in ‘smoke) and the durable Tritan material makes them equal parts resilient and stylish. They also coordinate seamlessly with other items in the Better Homes and Gardens collection, including an embossed pitcher and ribbed dinnerware, that can bring the entire look together.

Featuring a striking gold frame with intricate floral details, this mirror looks like it came straight from Anthropologie’s latest collection (at a fraction of the price). It carries a signature Baroque era aesthetic, where the rich gold finish and meticulous scrollwork bring a modernized vintage charm. It’s also easy to hang with keyhole hangers and lightweight at 3.5 pounds. Translation? This is the most affordable way to add a touch of sophistication to your entryway or bedroom.
