The Perfect Style for You

We bought new patio furniture last year when we moved into our new house in North Carolina and had a sunroom to furnish and boy, did I not realize how many choices of furniture there are. Between conversation sets (think more couches and chairs with a coffee table) to dining sets (a more traditional outdoor dining space) to accent seating: there are a lot of different directions you can go!

Make Your Patio Furniture Last

Before beginning your shopping journey, consider if you’ll be looking to have the furniture be primarily indoors or outdoors. Pieces with a lot of fabric or rope detailing can hold pollen or dirt, making them have a shorter lifespan due to the elements. If your fabric pieces will be used outdoors, I recommend purchasing an outdoor storage bin or two. We have these and they’re wonderful!

Outdoor Accent Chairs

I love a statement chair and think there’s something so delightful about an egg chair and a large green plant. It gives me vintage 1920s vibes in the absolute best ways possible. No matter your vibe, I’ve included some favorites below!

Conversation Sets: Patio Furniture

This is my personal FAVORITE style of seating because it allows multiple people to gather while keeping a cool and relaxed vibe. I love pairing casual couches and coffee tables for intimate gatherings – it allows the summer beverages and conversation to keep flowing!

Feel free to mix and match these pieces for a unique look and show your own personal style. Mixing chairs and couches actually create a more high end look than sticking to one matching set. Just try to select “cousin” pieces within a collection for the perfect visual balance.

Dining Patio Furniture

If your summer calling is to host the ultimate dinner party: look no further than these dining sets! Set under some twinkle lights and paired with delicious food, these pieces are the missing ingredient to your perfect evening.

I’ve given suggestions of seating as well as tables, allowing you to customize your own set!
