10 Outdoor Furniture Ideas to Spruce up Your Patio

Outdoor patio furniture lets you create an extension of your living space, providing an area to relax and entertain. If you’re looking for some new furniture to spruce up your patio for the summer season, check out the latest trends below.

Patio Conversation Sets

The patio dining set is your go-to for eating outdoors, but it’s not the most comfortable setting for lounging and socializing. For that, you’ll need a patio conversation set. This combination includes a coffee table with outdoor seating consisting of a couch and chair with comfortable cushions. It’s the perfect way to welcome guests into your outdoor living space for some nibblies or coffee while you get the table set for dinner. The best place for a patio conversation set is beside a garden or pool area.

Fire Pit Sets

Enjoy your outdoor living space even when the sun sets, and the air cools with a fire pit. Today you can find a number of beautiful fire pit patio sets to purchase that include everything from the fire table to the chairs and couch that are designed to be used outdoors. You can choose between different décor styles such as aluminum, wicker, or metal with a variety of colours to match your patio theme. 

Chaise Lounges

There’s no better way to relax and take in the sun when outdoors than on a comfortable chaise lounge. Don’t worry, the cheesy plastic-looking ones have been replaced with high-quality materials like teak wood, wicker, and metal. Waterproof cushions in your favourite accent colour can be added to spruce up your outdoor area and turn the chair into the perfect reading or napping spot.

Outdoor Couches and Sectionals

Take your patio design up a notch with a full-sized couch or 4-piece sectional that will fit all your family and friends together in one place. Today’s cushion guard systems ensure that they won’t fade or get damaged by the rain when left outside. With an array of beautiful finishes available and even matching table sets, you can easily find the right couch or sectional option to meet your needs. 

Cantilever Umbrellas

Block out the harmful rays and stay out longer with a big, beautiful cantilever umbrella. Designed to extend over the top of you with the pole at the side, these are perfect for covering large areas, including your patio dining or conversation set up. The hot sun is no match for these durable, versatile umbrellas that swivel 360 degrees and can be easily moved around. 


Enhance an area of your outdoor living space with a decorative pergola that provides shade year-round. A pergola can also be used as a focal point that brings your attention to a certain area of your backyard. You can even hang plants, drape lights or suspend a swing from the structure as well to spruce up your patio area even more. If you don’t have a budget to build an expensive patio canopy, you can use a pergola and get the same effect.


A swing makes a lovely addition to any patio setup. It’s a great place to relax, read a book or simply sip on your morning coffee outdoors. Adding a swing to your décor setup is easy too. They can easily be hung from trees or even the patio roofing system. 


If you prefer a more boho-chic look, skip the swing and go for a hammock. A hammock will create an attractive centrepiece in your outdoor space. Not only does it look cool, but it’s also comfortable enough to nap in or read your favourite book. 


Hammocks are great, but if you want to truly transform your backyard into a luxury resort-style apace, then you need a day bed. A luxurious daybed is the ultimate outdoor piece for comfort, and R&R. Simply add some pillows, and you’ve created a lavish spot to relax and lounge with friends or to meditate and Zen out. 

Sling Chair

You never know when company is going to show up out of the blue. You have to be prepared by having extra seating that you can whip out in a hurry. So stock up on outdoor sling chairs that not only look great but can easily be folded up and stored away in a jiffy.
