Organized, disciplined, and delightfully predictable, Virgos are what the world needs to make sure everything goes back to its rightful place—including patio furniture. Clean lines and easy maintenance are a priority for these perfectionists, who are more than happy to avoid flashier details and look-at-me color. There’s nothing like a matching patio set and plenty of shade to make a Virgo sigh with relief. Subtle, orderly patterns for rugs, pillows, and textiles also appeal to the most sensible of signs.
