With doctors prescribing time in nature to patients and studies reporting that kids who spend more time in nature are happier, it’s obvious that the more hours we spend outdoors the better it is for our wellness. And as the days start to stay sunnier for longer, now is the perfect time to make the most of your outdoor space. Turn your deck, patio or balcony into a relaxing oasis with the right set of furniture.
A good set will depend on what’s best for you and your family and how you intend to use it. You might plan to use it by yourself to work outside for part of the day or maybe it’ll be more of a family gathering place to eat meals al fresco or watch a movie on an outdoor projector. You could even choose a set to create a new spot to entertain and invite your favorite neighbors over for cocktails. (Or all of the above!)
No matter the exact reason, we’ve rounded up 10 of the most-loved, highest-rated outdoor sets available now on Amazon to make the most of longer days ahead.
Currently selling for $350 (down from $500), this four-piece outdoor set offers a sturdy and comfortable place to hang out.

Plus it’s modern and chic, a great set for up to four people at a time.
For a little pop of color, this five-piece wicker patio set might just do the trick. Available for $320, we like how the box chairs come with ottomans that can be tucked back under to conserve space. It also comes with a coffee table. This set would work well on a small balcony or patio or by the pool. Reviewers have noted it to be easy to assemble and that the chairs are very comfortable.

The seats are sturdy and offer nice support for your back and arms. It’s currently available on Amazon for $390 (down from $410).

A major bonus is that the cushions are washable. Find it from $219 to $260, depending on which color cushions you get.
Those with limited space might like this table set that’s ideal for one or two people.

This wicker conversation set comes with two ergonomically designed chairs that stay in place thanks to non-slip legs. The padded cushions have removable covers for easy upkeep.
