Whether you just moved into a new place or want to refresh your patio, investing in quality outdoor furniture will elevate the look of your outdoor space and encourage you to get more use out of it. One of our favorite retailers for uncovering modern yet earthy outdoor furniture is West Elm. The brand offers loads of options, from outdoor sofas, durable lounge chairs, and dining sets to coffee tables, side tables, and bar carts. The store really has it all, in a variety of styles and dimensions.

We’ve honed in on pieces that will bring luxury resort style to your home. Details like handwoven all-weather wicker, nylon cording that resembles rope, and water-resistant eucalyptus and mahogany not only assure these pieces are built to brave the elements, but they also capture the style and comfort of indoor furniture. To help you figure out which pieces are right for you, we’ve listed our favorite features, which environments we think these pieces are best for, who might want to avoid them, and details like dimensions, materials, and seating capacity. We know outdoor spaces come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you can choose from pieces like expandable dining tables that can accommodate 10 people in a pinch or compact bistro tables perfect for two.

Shop our top picks from West Elm’s vast offerings ahead.
