Save $32: Alfy Outdoor Club Chair with Cushions (set of 2)

Let’s start with an inviting place to sit and have a frozen margarita. This pair of Alfy Club Chairs from Christopher Knight Home is made of Acacia wood — which happily doesn’t darken — maintaining that warm wood tone that’s trending this season. It’s durable, and the cushions are dressed in a water-resistant fabric that’ll withstand the elements and make cleaning up that spilled cocktail a breeze when you’ve had one too many. I recommend taking in your cushions whenever you can, to extend their life even further. I love the sexy curve around the back of the chair — so chic! You can even upgrade the set with a matching side table or pouf.

This happy customer says: “These chairs are beautiful! The cushions are extremely thick and comfy— they look exactly as pictured.”

Right now the set is on sale for $492, down from $524, making each chair less than $250.

Save $53: Nicole Miller Indoor/Outdoor Rug (8 by 10)

Don’t forget the rug — it’s a forgotten plane outdoors, but it grounds the space like nothing else can, making a homey atmosphere that evokes real outdoor living. This New York Patio Country Rug by Nicole Miller is a great option, and it’s on sale for 33 percent off. I’ve priced the 8 by 10 size here, because bigger is always better. Design tip — at a minimum, the front feet of your furniture should sit on the rug. It makes the space appear larger. This chevron pattern comes in nine colors.

This outdoorswoman agrees: “Can’t say enough great things about this rug! This a really tough and durable woven material and has been rained on several times and dries fairly quickly. It definitely pulls our entire outdoor space together and is very sleek.”

Save $50: Best Choice Products 5-Piece Modular Outdoor Sectional Set

I’m loving the preppy nautical vibe of this outdoor sectional set. It comes with a three-sectioned sofa, six seat clips to keep it together, an ottoman, two pillows and a coffee table — all for $500. That’s 50 bucks off the original price, which is already a steal. The washable wicker is tightly woven around a sturdy, powder-coated steel frame. The ottoman can be pushed against the sofa to create a chaise — or configure the pieces however you choose! The weather resistant cushion covers are removable so you can toss them in the wash, which is a huge convenience.

Says a happy camper: “I love it. Fits perfectly on my small porch. Cushions are fine, but I am a big girl so added extra for comfort. Very sturdy but took about four hours to put together — instructions were thorough and easy to understand.”

This reviewer says it all: “Now that the weather is warming up, I’m breaking out all my outdoor decor. This tabletop fire pit is the newest addition to my deck and it’s a wonderful piece! I love that it feels solid and sturdy ; it’s also easy to use. The extinguisher is effective and sleek, and the design of the bowl is versatile enough to fit in with any decor. Definitely a must have for a cozy backyard space!”

I agree! love the sculptural element this portable piece provides — it’s the perfect mix of form and function. Fueled by ethanol biofuel, the artistic little fire pit can be used indoors or out, so you can experience the warmth and ambiance anywhere. And by little I mean little — it’s only about 8 by 8 inches. Most importantly? It’s perfect for making s’mores.

And right now it’s $10 off.

Long and low, these planters are great for creating separate areas or lining your deck so no one takes a dive off the edge — cue the aforementioned margaritas. City dwellers can benefit from these too by adding some greenery to a balcony or rooftop. Landscaping is a big reason why we venture outside, so it deserves special treatment.

These concrete planters provide a clean, modern look that allow your plants to steal the show. Fill with snake plants or grasses for a tall, refined look. Made of concrete and weather-resistant fiberglass, these are durable, stylish and add an unexpected medium to a wooden deck, creating contrast. This set contains two sizes: 31″ wide by 15″ deep and high, and 23″ wide by 12″ deep and high. Save nearly 30 bucks right now!

A concrete convert says, “I was skeptical that these planters would be actual concrete based on the price, but I am glad to say I was wrong! These planters are amazing — very clean, simple look with a beautiful finish. Very light, but They are legit made out of fiberglass mesh reinforced concrete. The planters are exactly as pictured and have a 1″ hole drilled in center of the bottom for drainage. They also come with a rubber plug if you do not want the hole.”
