Socializing and dining outdoors can be a relaxing and peaceful way to spend time with friends and family, but your furniture must be durable enough to stand up to the elements. These patio sets are specifically designed to withstand the harsh sunlight and excessive moisture of the outdoors, and with a range of sizes and designs, you should be able to find one that fits your family's needs.

Something to keep in mind when choosing your patio furniture is the weight of the people who will using it. Some sets are able to support more weight than others, the Devoko Outdoor Garden and Victone 5, for example, can handle 330-pounds of weight on their seats, while the Oakmont Brown loveseat is only rated to support 500 pounds, which would only be 250-pounds per person.
You should also take into account how many people will be using the set. If you have a big family that's always out by the pool or you host a lot of neighborhood barbeques, you'll want a large set, like the 9-piece SunHaven Resin. But if you live with one significant other and only have a small outdoor space, then a smaller two-seat option would suffice, like the Devoko Outdoor Garden. Even if you plan on having people over occasionally, sometimes it can be easier to just bring an extra chair outside, rather than have additional seating that is going unused most of the time.
Depending on your climate, you may want to invest in an outdoor heater to be able to enjoy your patio furniture on cooler nights. Alternatively, an outdoor fan or patio umbrella could be a better choice if you're in an especially hot or humid climate.
Though these sets are all designed to stand up to the elements, you may also want to add another layer of protection with an outdoor furniture cover. These can help prolong the life of your patio furniture even more, and also keep off leaves, bird droppings, and other debris.
