Cool Outdoor Furniture for 2014

I've got OUTDOORS on my mind lately since we just finished setting up ours last weekend.
Yup, we're all set for summer but really, its just nice being outdoors too this Spring time don't you think?
And although I have no need for new furniture right now for our space (except for some bar stools which I'll talk about some other time), I can't help but admire all the new designs that are available out there for buyers who are still looking.

Here are some of my favorites. Let's start off with some

Madear Teal Dining from PB - love that you don't need cushions to be comfy
I usually see these kinds of furniture in West Elm or Crate and Barrel, but I guess Potterybarn is trying on new more cleaner and more modern styles now too!

Modern Picnic Bench anyone?
This one is from TARGET Threshold line and love the mix of steel (aluminum)& wood.
Love with this concrete top table - can go out or indoors too!
Another PB fave of mine, the top is virtually indestructible. Moving it though might be a bit tough, but ain't it pretty?
Love this modern design from Lowes
Perfect for a roofed patio. Roofed because of the glass top I think. This tables got some pretty legs!

Now let's see some cool OUTDOOR SEATING...

Sleek Faux Wood modern Adirondack from Target
Gotta love TARGET for coming up with a slight twist on a classic.

Nice rustic look - comes in Grey too
Perfect for your porch or veranda.

Danish Modern for the outdoors? WHY NOT!
A big Ooh-la-la for me - teak and white, with those curvy lines, I want it! Only downside would be price.

Bedroom style for the outdoors? Why not!
For your tweens and teens and maybe even you. This one looks cushy enough to be in your bedroom too right?

Absolutely love this chair from Serena & Lily
I forgot to add this to my Mother's Day wishlist - just lovely from Serena & Lily.
And speaking of Serena & Lily, I know your all crazy about their Riviera chairs like I am. So I was giddy to find an affordable Look-a-like from nonetheless but TARGET here...

Affordable French Bistro Outdoor chairs from Target - $270 for a pair
Serena and Lily's version is $245 for just one! Target version comes in red and grey too!
Bar stool version pretty cute too

This one is a more modern take on these classics - love it too

Cafe Bistro Set anyone?
This last one is from Garndin Road and I love the mix of blue and black in their set. Plus their table is pretty darn cute too.

Now let's look at my favorite OUTDOOR LOUNGING....

Cool and affordable Lounging option
This one is from Lowe's and I love the 'crate look ' of this set. Easy on the eyes and still looks might comfy.

Mid-century Modern set
Another work of art from Frontgate
I love the island-vibe of this modern set and I also like breezy feel of these seats
This set definitely takes me to the islands or the beach. 
Definitely love the comfy look and clean lines of this collection!
A set that I would probably even put indoors! Just so gorgeous!

Well, that's it for now. Hope you enjoyed this quick round-up of mine.
How about you have you started sprucing up your patio yet?  I'm guessing you'll be celebrating Mother's Day one way or another right? Either way hope it will be fun!

Have a Great DayEveryone!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...


  1. I love the Target bistro chairs, Vel, what a great find! Thanks for sharing this round up, I need to think about my outdoor space!

  2. I'm with you, I can't wait to get outdoors. I spent a couple of hours yesterday pressure washing the pollen off the porch and putting the boat in the water because it sure feels like summer here!

  3. Our goal this year is to get the backyard cleaned up and start enjoying it more. Right now we really only go outside to use the pool, but our backyard is huge and I feel like we aren't taking advantage of it. We do have patio furniture, but I'm looking to add a couple lounge chairs by the pool.

  4. Wonderful selections, Vel! Target really has some great outdoor pieces - I always find cool stuff there. Hope you're enjoying a fabulous spring - xo

  5. Perfect timing with your post, Vel. I have spent the afternoon surfing the net looking for some to add to our patio. I came across the Target knockoff,too....Loved it and what a great price. Still on the hunt though. Thanks for sharing! Jane

  7. I love the patio set with the glass top from Lowes! I've seen lots of sectionals used on patios too and I love that look. We spruced up our patio with new flowers for all my pots, but that's about all we've done so far. :) We'll be celebrating Mother's Day this weekend with family. I'm hosting at my house, so I've been on a cleaning binge all week. :) Happy early Mother's Day to you, Vel!!

  8. Great picks! I am actually a little obsessed with that Target concrete table. Definitely going to check that out!

  9. I love them all! I wish we could afford new deck furniture!

  10. Ack, I want it all!! Especially a large outdoor sofa or sectional with modern lines. One day I will have an outdoor space big enough for that!

  11. Don't they have the best outdoor furniture now ? Loving the set from Gloster - so fun!!

  12. Outdoor furniture is getting prettier and classier, but the pricing is the real "show-stopper!" Yikes!

  13. It all looks so nice! Wish I was more of an outdoor person. If I lived in California I know I would be!

  14. Such a great round-up, Vel! I like the modern picnic bench for their looks and practicality. I also like the Lowes set, the futuristic-looking midcentury modern set and the last one.


  15. Timely post, Vel. We spent the weekend looking at new patio sets! Of course, there were so many choices, we couldn't decide...boo! Oh well, there's always next weekend! My husband is THRILLED at that prospect! ;)

  16. Beautiful picks Vel - now you have me brainstorming about what to do on our deck this summer!! It is certainly on it's way:) Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!!

  17. Just desire to say your article is as surprising. The clarity in your post is simply excellent about the outdoor furniture and i could assume you’re an expert on this subject.
