When you’re working with a constrained budget, it takes some strategic shopping to design the outdoor space of your dreams. You might be willing to shell out for a dining table where you know you’ll host countless soirées through the year, but maybe you have to find some more affordable chairs to arrange around it. Design is all about balance. And that’s where dupes come in handy.

It can take a good deal of digging to find a piece of outdoor furniture that not only suits your aesthetic vision but also works with your budget. Luckily, our designers know a thing or two (honestly, even more) about sourcing hidden treasures — so we’ve decided to share their best budget finds for some of the most covetable outdoor pieces.

If you’re in the process of reimagining your garden, deck, or patio, these pieces can prepare your outdoor space for sunny days ahead. Shop our go-to dupes for outdoor chairs, tables, sofas, and more.

1. Lounge Chairs

Outdoor living is all about bringing the comforts of inside, well, out. Plush armchairs make for a chic lounge essential — perfect for curling up with a book on a sunny day or enjoying a refreshing beverage with a friend. Lulu and Georgia’s Anson Chair features a curved silhouette, teak frame, and wicker detailing that’s next-level chic, but Arlo Home’s affordable alternative offers a similar mixed-material look for a fraction of the price.

2. Bistro Chairs

Rattan bistro chairs are a timeless al fresco dining option. Pottery Barn’s blue-and-white chairs evoke Parisian cafes, as do Anthropologie’s much cheaper alternative (with a slightly lighter wood tone). 

3. Dining Tables

If you love to entertain, you probably want a dining table that can fit a crowd — and both of these outdoor-friendly wooden options fit that bill. McGee & Co.’s option is made out of sun-bleached teak wood, which gives it a cool, coastal feel. Article’s dining table offers a more mid-century-inspired look, with slightly darker teak wood and slim, angled legs.

4. Dining Chairs

Whether your style errs more coastal or more cottagecore, wicker is a classic material for a reason. The double-walled wicker frame of Serena & Lily’s dining chairs give them a distinctly sophisticated, modern appeal. Pottery Bar’s alternative skews just a touch more traditional — making them a versatile choice for different design styles.

5. Side Tables

Adding functionality is essential when designing a timeless outdoor living room. But you don’t have to go all-out on a cute, on-trend side table that will stand up to the elements. We love the style of Four Hands’ pricey version above, but found a similar fluted concrete style from Wayfair for far less.

6. Sofas

Powder-coated metal frames give these loveseats a cool industrial look — but plush cushions ensure they’re a comfortable spot to curl up outside. Pottery Barn’s Malibu loveseat makes a big statement with its thicker frame, but Article’s more affordable option has a similar contemporary appeal.

7. Adirondack Chair

Few things say “summer” quite like an adirondack chair. When situated in a garden, by a firepit, or around a dining area, these chairs make a timeless yard addition. The solid teak of McGee & Co.’s option gives it a more Scandinavian appeal, while West Elm’s driftwood-style seat has a weathered, coastal vibe.

8. Coffee Tables

These fluted coffee tables evoke classical columns — supremely elegant reference to make in a patio area! Williams Sonoma and West Elm’s designs only differ in minor ways, making the slightly smaller West Elm option a pretty spot-on dupe.

9. Outdoor Rugs

An outdoor rug can completely transform a deck or patio seating area, and neutral buffalo plaid is a timeless material for al fresco designs. McGee & Co’s Bellevue Outdoor Rug is a marvel of true craftsmanship, ideal for a covered patio, while Wayfair’s budget alternative mimics the look with a more weather-resistant material.

10. Outdoor Umbrellas

With a fringed, striped umbrella, it’s easier than you may think to evoke the beaches of Positano right at home. Small details, like a teak pole, give Pottery Barn’s umbrella a slightly more refined look, but West Elm’s option is an equally chic — and more budget-friendly — alternative. 

11. Firepits

Whether you’re in it for the s’mores or not, a firepit can completely transform an outdoor space by adding instant ambience. Both of these concrete designs look distinctly contemporary. Pottery Barn’s firepit has a slightly more organic look, thanks to its more rounded design, while Wayfair’s has a bold, modern appeal.

12. Garden Stools

Whether you’re enjoying a crisp glass of wine or you just want somewhere to rest your book, a ceramic garden stool can come in handy — in addition to adding a pop of color to your setup. The scalloped edge of Hudsonhill Foundry’s design gives it a unique sculptural look, while the East Asian-inspired cutout design of Wayfair’s budget alternative is perfectly elegant.

13. Picnic Baskets

Who says you can’t have a picnic in your own yard? These two picnic basket options make for a special dining experience. Pottery Barn’s two-person set is ideal for a fancy, romantic meal, while West Elm’s Party Pack is well-suited to serve a crowd.
