The Best Patio Furniture
Looking to spruce up your outdoor space? The best patio furniture pieces are made from strong, durable materials that will last like metal, wood, or some types of plastic. Plus, they come in different sizes and styles — from comfy sectionals to outdoor dining tables — so you can find the pieces that fit both your needs, your style, and your space.
Patio furniture has to hold up against all weather conditions, so look for sturdy materials that are easy to maintain. Furniture made from metal or wood can be super durable and stylish, but both require routine maintenance against weather damage. Wicker with a metal frame can also hold up well long-term, but wicker materials vary — ideally look for polyethylene (PE) wicker, which is lightweight, stain-resistant, and resistant to UV damage. If you're looking at tables with glass on top, opt for tempered glass which is stronger. For those on a budget, plastic resin is cheap and easy to maintain, but may only last a season or two. And finally, if the furniture has cushions, ensure they’re removable or made of water-resistant materials.
Outdoor furniture often comes in sets (like a matching dining table and chairs, or a lounge set with a couch and coffee table) that can cover a lot of bases and look put-together. But it's also possible to buy separate furniture pieces, like side tables, benches, and lounge chairs, in order to customize your space.
These eight picks include a range of furniture pieces, so surely you’ll find ones for your patio. And Amazon reviewers give them their stamp of approval, too.
We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

6. A 7-Piece Wicker Furniture Set That's Super Versatile
This modular lounge furniture set from Best Choice comes with four single chairs, two corner chairs, and one table that can be configured in a whole bunch of different ways depending on your space and needs. Throwing a party? Arrange the pieces so you end up with two sofas and a chair for plenty of seating. Looking to lounge? Turn the pieces into one big sectional sofa. The set even comes with cushions, two accent pillows, a protective cover, and seat fastener clips.
Each of the pieces are made of a high-quality wicker that is tightly woven around a sturdy, rust-resistant steel frame. The manufacturer doesn't state the material the wicker is made from, but does note that it's all-weather wicker. The cushions have removable covers that are machine-washable, and the table features a tempered glass top.
The wicker and frame can stand some bad weather, but the cushions cannot. Water-resistant cushion covers mean they can probably handle a little light rain, but anything more and you'll want to cover your furniture with the included protective cover. Choose from five different color combinations.
Enthusiastic Amazon review: "This is a great product for the price. We ordered in dark brown wicker and tan cushions. The unit arrived in three large boxes. To assemble and move you will need two people. The cushions need time to puff up after unwrapping, but are comfortable to sit on. Once we figured out the best way to screw in the bolts, assembly went faster. There are a number of ways to arrange the seats and we love the option of choices. [...] We are very happy with the product and know it’ll be used well and enjoyed."
7. A Fan-Favorite Outdoor Side Table That Folds Up
This side table from Adams Manufacturing is super handy. The small table (about 17 by 15 inches and 20 inches tall) folds up for easy storage, and it's just 3 pounds so it's easy to move around. When you need the table, simply unfold it for use next to patio chairs, chaise lounges, and more. The table holds up to 25 pounds of weight, and is made of a plastic resin that won’t peel, rust, or rot. Amazon reviewers are in love with this pick; they give it a solid 4.4-star rating on the site, with 4,700 and growing reviews.
Choose from a super wide range of colors to coordinate with your other furniture.
Enthusiastic Amazon review: "I ordered this to have something to put our drinks on while we sit in our patio swing. It is perfect! The quality of the item is very good. I don't think it would do well for someone to sit on it or put a heavy planter pot or something large on top of it, but for a small plant or drinks it is perfect! [...] It came fully assembled, so I did not have to do any screwing or clicking together. I just removed the packaging and slid it open and took it outside. It is also easy to clean. This is a heavy plastic, and will just wipe clean or you could spray it off with a hose. It is a great outdoor item and we highly recommend it."
8. A Small Wicker Furniture Set With Rocking Chairs
If you’re in need of a small bistro set for your patio, this set from SUNCROWN is the cutest. The set comes with a small glass-top side table and two rocking chairs that are cushioned for comfort (but don’t worry, the cushions come off for easy cleaning). All of the pieces are made of a black PE wicker and feature a steel frame for sturdiness. The manufacturer doesn't note if the cushions are weather-resistant, but Amazon reviewers suggest that they do not seem to be waterproof and should be taken inside when it rains.
Choose from beige, cyan, and red color options. Each chair has a weight capacity of 250 pounds. The 18-by-18-inch table is just over 19 inches high.
Enthusiastic Amazon review: "This set is a steal, the price definitely doesn't reflect the product. [...] The chairs are super comfortable, they are pretty low to the ground but that friend and my husband and myself love to sit on the porch in them. They are also beautiful, sleek and didn't take very long to assemble. A def buy."
