These Chic and Stylish Outdoor Sofa Sets Will Upgrade Your Patio Living Space

Summer is here and along with it comes the best excuse to spend more time outdoors. Whether you love spending your days lounging under the sun with a book in your hand or the family is getting together for some outdoor evening board games, investing in a good outdoor sofa set is almost mandatory. And, if you know how to choose the right one, you can enjoy it for years to come.

Tips for Buying Outdoor Furniture

There is a huge difference between the level of resistance that outdoor furniture needs to have compared to the one that stays indoors. Here is what you need to know beforehand:

  • When it comes to outdoor furniture, the most common materials that you are going to come across are natural wood, rattan/wicker, steel/iron, aluminum, plastic/PVC. Naturally, each of these comes with a different set of properties. Natural wood is an excellent choice as long as you choose a weather-resistant product; rattan and wicker are really common and easy to pair with multiple yard settings, but they require constant weatherproofing; iron and steel are really reliable in the long run but they need to have a weatherproof finish to prevent rust.
  • If you opt for wooden outdoor furniture, make sure it has been sanded and doesn’t have any splinter that might cause incidents. Make sure that you choose painted metals that have a uniform finish or wicker furniture doesn’t have any loose ends.
  • If you purchase outdoor furniture online, that means that you will have to assemble most of it yourself. Make sure that the joints are tight and well-fitted, and that the parts you receive have been welded properly. When you put everything together, nothing has to wobble.
  • Outdoor furniture has to be resistant to powerful sun and rain exposure, otherwise you will find yourself carrying furniture pieces in an out of the house/garage way too often for your own comfort.

Top 13 Best Outdoor Sofa Sets

1. Shamavi 4 Piece Rattan Sofa Seating Group with Cushions

View in gallery

This set comes with 4 pieces and offers you a very unique outdoor sofa setup that’s bound to find a way into multiple yard settings and patios. The cushions are 2.2 inches thick and are made with canvas upholstery so they can be easier to clean and super comfortable to sit on.

The frame is made from wicker, giving the set a timeless design, but also the features that you want to have in an outdoor sofa set: it’s rust, water, weather, and UV-resistant. One recommendation that we do have to make is to make sure that you always remove the cushions and store them in a non-humid place when you’re not using them.

Pros:

  • Resistant wicker construction.
  • 7 cushions included.
  • Thick and comfortable cushions.
  • Table also included.

Cons:

  • Difficult to put together.

2. Calloway 4 Piece Sectional Seating Group

View in gallery

The Calloway 4-piece set is actually an L-shaped style outdoor sofa that includes a small wooden table matching the entire set. Made from solid wood, the frame is pretty resistant to outdoor weather conditions, so you shouldn’t be worried about water damage whenever it rains.

The cushions are made from polyester blend and there are a total of 6 cushions available, designed to match each of the three seating sections on this corner-style sofa. Overall, the set can support a total weight of 1050 pounds, which says enough about the overall durability of the product.

Pros:

  • Removable cushion covers.
  • 1050 pounds weight capacity.
  • Table included.
  • Water-resistant construction.
  • Unique natural wood grain.

Cons:

When you often find yourself having guests over and you want to enjoy spending as much time outside as possible, always consider investing in an outdoor sofa that provides you with plenty of seating space, like this Kenwick set. Made from polyethylene wicker, this set was designed to withstand nature’s elements so that you can enjoy the seats for years to come.

The acrylic cushions are actually available in a wide variety of colors, giving more space to play with the looks. There is a total of 12 cushions included, while the set itself comes with the main sofa, a couple of ottomans, and a center table for holding your drinks.

Pros:

  • Fully-assembled.
  • Long-lasting suspension.
  • Removable cushion covers.
  • Weather-resistant construction.

Cons:

  • Cushions get easily stained.

4. Chesterle 6 Piece Sectional Seating

View in gallery

Outdoor sofa sets that are made from wicker are one of the best investments you can make, since the material is really resistant to water and UV light. This particular set meets those standards and offers generous seating space for up to 5 people. Since this is a sectional set, you can combine the pieces to create one large L-shaped sofa or you can remove the sections to have the seating pieces further apart.

The set includes 13 cushions with removable covers for easy washing. It also features a table with a wicker body and a glass top, so it’s really easy to clean it whenever there are too many glass smudges on the surface.

Pros:

  • Removable cushion covers.
  • Multiple versatile sections.
  • Generous table space.
  • Weather-resistant construction.
  • Tempered glass table, easy to clean.

Cons:

  • Cushions will easily lose shape.

5. Ulibarri 6 Piece Rattan Sectional Seating Group with Cushions

View in gallery

Here is another great outdoor sofa set that’s based on a wicker construction, sharing a lot of similarities with some of our aforementioned products. The entire set is built around the idea of sectional pieces that can be put together whenever you want to create a large seating space. There are 12 cushions included in the set, all of them with a decent amount of cushioning, but questionable long-term durability. The covers can be removed and washed in the home washing machine.

The wicker part of the set, however, is really resistant to everything from sunlight to rain exposure. The table itself is really similar to the one found in the Chesterle set: the base is made from wicker and it features a tempered glass top that’s really easy to wipe clean.

Pros:

  • Removable/washable covers.
  • Weather resistant construction.
  • Plenty of seating space.
  • Tempered glass top table.

Cons:

  • Separate packages may arrive.

6. Caillat Patio 4 Piece Rattan Sofa Seating

View in gallery

The Caillat patio set is another product worth your money because it features plenty of seating space and a quality construction that uses wicker as its center material. This rattan set is perfect for different types of outdoor setups, and the dark color makes it easy to match with multiple types of yard decors.

A nice surprise was to see that the upholstery material of choice is cotton, creating a more breathable cushion made with a fabric of a higher quality. The coffee table is bigger compared to what we’ve seen in other sets, and it can hold anything from phones to foods and snacks. The set includes a loveseat, two chairs, and a table.

Pros:

  • Cotton upholstery.
  • Glass table top.
  • Generous space on coffee table.
  • Removable and washable cushion covers.
  • Weather-resistant construction.

Cons:

  • Difficult to assemble.

7. Donn Conversation 4 Piece Rattan Sofa Seating

View in gallery

We present to you yet another beautiful outdoor sofa set with four seating spots and a weather-resistant rattan construction. The set was clearly built to last and align with different types of yard decors, being perfectly capable of withstanding both rain and sun.

The upholstery material for the cushions is canvas but one thing that we were not particularly fond of is the fact that there are no cushions included for the back, only for the bottom. That means that leaning on the wicker backrest for too long may be quite uncomfortable.  There is also a generous coffee table included that comes with a glass top surface, making it easy to clean with a damp cloth.

Pros:

  • Weather-resistant construction.
  • Different cushion color options.
  • Includes a coffee table.
  • No maintenance required.

Cons:

  • No cushion for backrests.

8. Evenson 4 Piece Sofa Seating

View in gallery

The Evenson seating group is a little bit different compared to the products we’ve seen so far. The seating outer frame material is made from solid wood and not wicker, and gives the whole set a very traditional, almost rustic feel. While the design of the set is really appreciated and the construction is really solid, there are a few concerns that we have about this product.

The cushions that it comes with are strictly for the bottom side of the seating, and you don’t get support for your back. Leaning against the wooden backrest will get tiring after a while. The second thing that we noticed is that the included coffee table doesn’t come with a glass top which always makes it easier to clean the table. The manufacturer advises to protect the furniture when not in use by either covering it or storing it indoors.

Pros:

  • Quality wooden construction.
  • Weather-resistant.
  • 3 cushion color options.
  • 4 frame color options.

Cons:

  • Best preserved when covered/stored indoors.

9. Granados 6 Piece Sofa Seating Group

View in gallery

Can we interest you in an outdoor sofa set with a sturdy metal frame construction? If so, you have to check out this Granados outdoor set that comes with a sofa, four chairs, a table, and all the cushions you need for each particular piece. Designed to provide seating space for up to six people, this is the perfect addition for a patio, but it also goes perfectly just by the pool.

While we absolutely love the comfort level provided by the cushions (yes, this set comes with backrest cushions as well), we did dislike the fact that the cover of the cushions isn’t removable and washable, making spot cleaning the next best choice. Just make sure to bring the cushions inside whenever you’re not using them.

Pros:

  • Table included.
  • Really comfortable cushions.
  • Sturdy metal frame.
  • Weather and rust-resistant.
  • Highly durable.
  • Easy to clean.

Cons:

  • Cushion covers are not removable.

10. Alcazar 4 Piece Sofa Seating

View in gallery

Straight from the style and elegance book comes a 4-piece outdoor sofa set that’s perfect for people looking to create a romantic setup in the comfort of their own backyard. The set brings forth a galvanized steel and acacia wood construction that promises long-term durability and weather resistance.

The cushions are made with polyester upholstery but the manufacturer insists on letting us know that the set can easily be used without them (I do hope that’s not a hint about the overall durability of the cushions). The set comes with a loveseat, two chairs, one coffee table, and six cushions.

Pros:

  • Quality construction.
  • Romantic-type vibe.
  • Weather resistant.
  • Made with solid acacia wood.

Cons:

  • Cushion covers are not removable.

11. Daytona 4 Piece Sofa Seating Group with Cushions

View in gallery

The Daytona outdoor sofa set is probably the most elegant one we’ve seen so far because of its unique design that blends modern accents with a rustic color. The set is made from a combination of galvanized steel and eucalyptus wood which create a stable and weather-resistant outdoor furniture set.

The set includes a bench, two chairs, and a coffee table, providing seating for up to four people. The bench and chairs each have their own cushions and a beautiful set of toss pillows included. The cushions are covered in polyester fabric and, while comfortable, the covers can’t be removed and cleaned in the washing machine.

Pros:

  • Toss pillows included.
  • Multiple cushion color options.
  • Solid eucalyptus wood construction.
  • Coffee table included.
  • Ties to keep the cushions in place.

Cons:

  • Throw pillows do not match the cushions.

12. Ellison 4 Piece Sectional Seating Sofa Set with Cushions

View in gallery

Let’s move on to another personal favorite: an outdoor sofa set made from acacia wood that serves to create amazing resting zones in intimate corners of the garden. This L-shaped set is sectional, but it can be put together to save space whenever the situation calls for it. The coffee table is adorable to say the least, with everything being made from quality solid wood available in a single color option.

The upholstery is made from polyester blend and the cushions are thick enough to make seating down for hours as comfortable as possible.  The product picture is a bit misleading, as there are no toss pillows included with the set. Also, the cover of the cushions isn’t removable, so you will have to spot clean them in case of any stains.

Pros:

  • Water-resistant.
  • Sectional and versatile design.
  • Comfortable cushioning.
  • Coffee table included.
  • Easy to assemble.

Cons:

  • Low-profile seating.

13. Timpano 4 Piece Deep Seating Group with Cushions

View in gallery

And now we have reached the end of our list, and some would argue that we saved the best for last. The Timpano outdoor sofa set is a metal-structure combo for furniture pieces that are aimed at giving homeowners a reliable product that will last for years to come.

The set includes a loveseat, two chairs, and a coffee table, each of them looking spotless even if metal isn’t popular for its good looks. The set is made from galvanized steel which is resistant to rust, while the pillows are fade and water resistant. They are made from polyester blend and actually feel really fluffy. Sadly, the cover of the cushions is not removable.

Pros:

  • Weather-resistant construction.
  • Quality galvanized steel frame.
  • Rust-resistant.
  • Slat-topped outdoor table.
  • Comfortable cushions.

Cons:

  • Complaints about missing parts.

Bottom Line

There are plenty of things one has to consider before buying an outdoor sofa set. How many people does it need to seat? What is the weather like in your area? How much available space do you have? How comfortable do the cushions have to be? Are you okay with spot cleaning fabric or do you want to wash them in the machine? Answering these questions will put you on the right path to choosing the best outdoor sofa set for your needs.
