Now that summer has finally arrived, it’s time for you to heed your call of the wild and head outside. Of course, you’re not chilling outside alone: You’ll have all your plants, grilling tools, and outdoor decor essentials keeping you company. That said, finding the right outdoor furniture to suit your space can be admittedly tricky. Not only do you have to find pieces that are designed with Mother Nature in mind—and hopefully don’t follow these key backyard blunders—but you’ll want to find items that look good, too. (Just like what’s inside your home, outdoor furniture can be surprisingly pricey, so it’s in your best interest to find furniture that ticks off all of the boxes.)

But with so many brands, materials, and options to choose from, whittling down your search to find the very best outdoor decor can be a doozy. To help, we tapped a few West Coast designers to share their favorite options. These professionals are no strangers to indoor-outdoor living, so it’s safe to say they know where to find everything from splurge-worthy investments to budget-friendly buys. Whether you’re looking for a new outdoor lounge chair or a fun bar cart, the search is finally over.
