We can tell you what’s cool, but we cannot tell you what’s perfect for your space. Here’s a flow chart of considerations.

Furniture you already have: Is there something you want to keep? An heirloom rocking chair or deck swing? We love sentimentality, so build around that piece.

The aesthetic you want: The best example here is Jenni Kayne versus L.L.Bean. The first is distinctly West Coast and the second East Coast. Do you want to go all in on one brand or look? Or do you want to mix and match? If it’s the latter, steer toward brands that make simple furniture that fits with everything.

The space you have: Don’t get a big, beautiful sectional from Arhaus if you don’t have the space. And if you have the space, you don’t need a space-saving option from West Elm.

The statement piece: If you don’t want to have fun, take your sensitive ass back inside to interior design! You’re using outdoor furniture to entertain, so we say go bold.
