It’s summer, which means it’s time to spend as much time as possible outside. Making your home’s outdoor space as comfortable as possible is a great way to do that, whether it’s through adding a bunch of plants, grabbing a grill for perfectly charred meats or splurging on some outdoor furniture.
Nothing transforms a patio better than a comfortable all-weather couch or set of lounge chairs, and no matter how much space you have available, there’s outdoor furniture that’ll fit your fancy. When purchasing furniture that lives outdoors, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind. It’s got to be durable, long-lasting and be able to withstand the elements while remaining comfortable to sit on. All of this tends to contribute to a higher price tag, but it’s worth spending extra money so it’ll last.
Frontgate makes some of the best outdoor furniture in the game, but it also tends to be pricey. They’ve currently got some great deals going on some of their most popular pieces, and we gathered a few of our favorites below. Summer is a great time to invest, since you’ll be able to enjoy it right away.
