Buying the best patio furniture is an easy task. Whether you're after a sumptuous five-piece set, a compact bistro set, or a recliner to catch the rays in your backyard, these are the nicest patio pieces out there. Durable and weatherproof, our picks are stylish, too, and will suit any patio.

Our top pick is the gorgeous Walsunny low-back all-weather rattan set; it will outfit your patio with all the furniture pieces you need in one go. Keep reading for more of our top picks. 

Best patio furniture set

Walsunny low-back all-weather rattan set

A five-piece rattan set that comes with cushions

All the patio furniture you need in a single set—it's weatherproof, too.


  • Weather-resistant synthetic rattan
  • Fade-resistant cushions 
  • Easy assembly 


  • Cushions slide around a bit
  • May not be suitable for taking a lot of weight

The Walsunny low-back all-weather rattan set is just what you need to take your patio to the next level. Made from stylish yet durable synthetic rattan, it comes with sumptuous, thick cushions that can be left out in the sun or a shower, and the covers can be easily removed for washing. There are three color choices for the cushions, which makes the set easy to tailor to your patio style. The only downside is the fact that the cushions aren't secured to the furniture, so they will move around a bit as you sit on them. 

Best bistro set

Flamaker 3 Pieces Patio Set

Flamaker 3-piece patio set

Our top three-piece choice

This compact yet stylish set is perfect for a smaller patio, and it's rust-proof, too.


  • Rust-proof frame
  • Chairs with armrests 
  • Versatile contemporary design


  • Cushions are a bit thin
  • A bit tricky to assemble

The Flamaker 3-piece patio set is compact yet well designed, with comfy chairs that have armrests (quite difficult to find in the world of bistro sets). Their durable, lightweight frames are made from powder-coated steel, and the weather-resistant synthetic wicker won't fade in the sun. Each seat will take up to 250 pounds, so you don't need to worry about the chairs breaking, ever. The cushions may not be the thickest we've come across, but you can always replace them with thicker ones if you want.

The Peach Tree outdoor furniture sectional wicker sofa is just the ticket if you're looking for something to fit into a corner or you're not yet sure how you want your patio sofa to be configured. It's sectional, meaning you can rearrange it however you want until it sits exactly the way it needs to in your space. It will withstand a shower and strong sun, and the cushion covers can be washed. What's even better, you get a stylish glass top coffee table included. Do bear in mind that while assembly is easy, it will take you a good while to do, so be prepared to be patient.

Le Conte offset umbrella

Enjoy the shade with this stylish parasol that comes in five colors

This gorgeous freestanding umbrella is made from high-quality fabric and offers protection from both UV rays and rain.


  • High-quality fabric
  • UV-resistant
  • Easy to assemble


  • Does not come with a base
  • Will swing around in strong winds

The Le Conte offset umbrella is perfect if you prefer your patio umbrellas freestanding rather than attached to your patio furniture. The craftsmanship on this patio umbrella is really amazing, with a thick, durable fabric that is sure to protect you from harmful UV rays. The colors are elegant and will suit all patios. The only real downside here is that you won't get a base with this umbrella, so you'll need to think about where you'll be putting it.
