Looking to turn your backyard or patio into an oasis? The best outdoor furniture stores will deliver everything you need to transform an average open-air space into an alfresco fantasy.
Whether you’re hoping to host hoards of friends or just lounge and take in some fresh air on your own, a comfortable space is a happy space. But buying outdoor furniture can quickly become overwhelming. Here are a few things that will make it easier:
- Take note of return policies in case what you decide on doesn’t quite fit your backyard
- Don’t forget the power of a warranty (the elements can do a number on outdoor furniture!)
- Go in with a plan—think of how you want people to flow throughout the space and buy furniture that supports that strategy. (For example, a big dining table may not be the answer if you dream of small groups catching up on gossip alfresco after a big dinner.)
- And, remember, you’ve got options! Just take time to think about them.
We’ve rounded up the very best shops that offer robust selections of outdoor furniture in a variety of styles—because why not have a slice of well-designed paradise in your own backyard?
It’s likely you’ve seen some Hay outdoor furniture in the backyards of your coolest buddies. Though there aren’t a ton of designs to choose from, the Danish-inspired brand really leans in on a few “patterns.” We aren’t talking textile patterns, more so powder-coated steel with clever cutouts. The color options are simple and rich: Think deep reds and lush olive green.
If your interior design (well, exterior design) style leans traditional, Pottery Barn has a ton of options for you to get lost in. Expect lots of texture, like rattan, and simple color palettes—beiges, creams, browns, and the occasional pop of chambray blue. This is an especially good spot to shop for deals on outdoor furniture sets—plus many of the designs are water-resistant and durable.
Digging through Castlery’s site is a delight—lots of pops of texture and luxe-looking silhouettes.

Rove Concepts serves up, designer-style, the kind of materials and silhouettes that subtly make an impact. The stock is full of pieces that will have people asking, “Where did you get that beautiful and comfortable lounge chair?” Well, maybe they’ll just ask where it’s from, but the designs do take comfort into consideration every step of the way.
This brand does a fantastic job offering neutrals in just about every design, as well as a bold pop of color. Each chair, table, and pouf is speaking to two audiences—perfect if you and your roommate (or partner, or parent) can’t quite agree on the color palette of your backyard space. There’s always room for one (or four) bright lounge chairs.
