Whether its carpentry work or a new sofa, we’ve all been burned by the “supply chain crisis” over the last two years or so. And while dealing with a dresser-less bedroom is certainly not ideal, enduring a beautiful spring and summer sans patio furniture stings on another level.
Considering all you want to do is drink rosé outside once winter finally breaks, we suggest you get ahead of the inevitable shipping snags and buy your patio furniture *now*. That way, once it actually hits 70 degrees come May, your outdoor setup will be ready and waiting for patio season. Plus, who doesn’t love a good warm-weather design project to get you through the last stretch of winter?
To get started, Havenly designer Brady Burke is sharing his favorite modern outdoor furniture selects, from seating and dining tables to decor and lighting. Browse his selects below (and add to cart immediately):
Layer 1: Comfortable Seating
Outdoor sofas and accent chairs have come a long way — you can now find stunning modern pieces in breezy outdoor-friendly materials like rattan, bamboo, and teak. If space allows, create a seating area complete with plush, comfortable accent chairs and loveseats, and consider mixing organic materials for a balanced, texture-rich setup that cues major Pacific natural feels.

Layer 2: Dining Essentials
Why not welcome spring with a proper al fresco dinner party? Set the stage with a sculptural dining table, contrasting rattan chairs, and a cabana-inspired fringed umbrella to protect you (and, more importantly, your food) from the elements. Cancel the reservations and book the backyard for your next gathering.

Layer 3: Durable Decor
Like a living room or bedroom, a patio setup isn’t complete without textiles and decor. Layer durable jute rugs underneath your seating areas, pepper a few outdoor pillows across the couch and chairs, and complete the ensemble with outdoor vases, planters, and side tables.

Layer 4: Outdoor Lighting
Your patio should be practical as well as beautiful. To take summertime patio hangs into the evening hours (and beyond), invest in a fire pit, string up some twinkle lights, and decorate with oversized outdoor lanterns. Don’t forget the bug spray and Citronella candles!
