The Best Patio Furniture According to the MYMOVE Team

Nothing makes you re-evaluate your patio furniture like some warm weather. Whether you’re moving to your first home with a yard or you just want to upgrade your old setup, we’ve got you covered with some of our team’s favorite items to help you enjoy the season. 

Our favorite patio furniture

Shintenchi Outdoor Furniture Set

Furniture set features

  • Includes two chairs and one side table
  • Weather resistant wicker construction
  • Anti-skid glass table top
  • Washable cushion covers

Even the best outdoor spaces won’t get much use if you don’t have the furniture to go along with it. There’s a lot to think about when choosing an outdoor furniture set — how it fits with your patio’s layout, the seating capacity you need, what style fits your space — but a simple rattan set like this one from Shintenchi is always a safe bet. The material is weather resistant, and you can even unzip and wash the cushion covers whenever you need.

“It took me way too long to buy a balcony set. I wish I would’ve done this earlier to help complete the look and feel of the apartment. It felt incomplete until I got my patio set. I now get to enjoy working and eating from there.”

Solo Stove Fire Pit

Fire pit features

  • Double-walled design for higher temperatures and minimal smoke
  • Comes in three sizes: 15, 20, and 38 pounds
  • Stainless steel construction

Are you the person who the campfire smoke follows around no matter where you sit? This fire pit from Solo Stove just might have you reaching for the marshmallows again. Solo Stove says its double-walled construction allows the fire to get 400 degrees hotter than a regular campfire, which translates to lower smoke and finer ash.

“The solo stove is a great outdoor patio firepit! It is small and smokeless which makes it perfect for summer s’mores making.”

Best Choice Products Porch Swing

Porch swing features

  • Weather resistant acacia wood and steel chain
  • 500-pound capacity 
  • 45-inch seat
  • Hanging hardware included

Enjoying a good rock on a porch swing is one of the finest summer activities there is, and it’s easier to achieve than you might think. This swing from Best Choice Products comes with a set of anchor bolts and mounting hardware fasteners rated up to 500 pounds, but you can also purchase your own hardware to up the capacity. Pro tip: Add a couple of summer pillows for a cozy touch.

“We have a porch swing alongside two rocking chairs tucked in a corner of our front porch. I think it’s important to find little hidden spaces to unwind that aren’t part of a central location. I feel like I have a special summer getaway in my home.”

GHUSTAR Outdoor String Light

String light features

  • Available in three sizes
  • Shatterproof LED bulbs
  • Compatible with dimmers
  • Strands can be linked together
  • Warm white bulbs

Adding string lights to your outdoor space immediately takes the charm up another level. Customers love these string lights from GHUSTAR — they stay cool to the touch and the heavy duty wiring and bulbs mean you won’t have to worry about being too fussy with them. And while “LED” might bring to mind harsh fluorescent lighting, these warm white bulbs add a soft glow to your outdoor space.

Erica D. | Editorial Director

“We recently added string lights to our screened-in porch, and I’m in love. They make the porch feel so cozy during the summer and they give off the perfect amount of light. I can’t believe we didn’t put them up sooner!”

Tangkula Rattan Sofa Set

Sofa set features

  • Available in six colors
  • Three-inch thick cushions with washable covers
  • Waterproof rattan construction
  • Can mix and match for different furniture combinations

If you have a little more space in your yard for a full patio set, this four-piece from Tangkula lets you customize for whatever situation you need. It comes with three chairs that can be pushed together for a sofa or used on their own, and the ottoman can be turned into a table by removing the cushion.

Lindsey D. | Senior Account Manager

“This patio set has nice thick durable cushions, and the pieces move to fit different shapes and spaces. We adjust the seats depending on the number of guests we are going to have. It is easy to clean and maintain!”

The bottom line

Summer is all about enjoying nice weather with the people you love, and the right outdoor furniture can help you get the most out of the season. But that doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune to get the patio of your dreams — creating an outdoor oasis can be as simple as hanging some string lights or upgrading your chair cushions.
