We rely on West Elm for all of our Mid Century Modern furniture desires, and their outdoor and patio offerings make us long for spring. West Elm can be pricey, but they often have seasonal sales, so be sure to sign up for their email list to keep an eye on deals you might want to take advantage of. They also offer white glove service for most furniture deliveries, so you can have your new outdoor set up ready to go as soon as it arrives on your doorstep.

Target is one of our catchall stores for all kinds of home goods, but we've taken special notice of their outdoor furniture recently with the launch of a few new in-house brands. Opalhouse brings casual sophistication with a bit of boho flair to conversation sets, outdoor throw pillows, loveseats and dining sets. The collection is characterized by bright colors and chic prints, perfect for a summer soiree.

It's worth remembering that Home Depot sells a lot more than tools and household miscellany. Their online furniture selection is huge, and you can have much of it delivered to your nearest Home Depot store for you to pick up for free. They have a variety of collections and styles that are somewhat traditional, but can easily be dressed up and updated with lighting, pillows and smaller decor items.

We've mentioned Article before because they are one of our favorite DTC furniture brands of late. Much of their outdoor furniture could work indoors, too, like this fun rattan chair. We also love that their prices are quite reasonable, and white glove service is available for larger items.

World Market is one of our favorite sources for eclectic home furnishings and affordable decor updates. Much of their offerings skew to a more bohemian, casual look, but can easily be dressed up with classic elements like a striped rug or formal setting. For hits of color, tropical wicker and vacation-esque vibes, this is our go-to shop.

Another great source of affordable patio furniture, be sure to check out Pier 1 if you're looking to make your outdoor space more inviting. From wicker chairs and couches to formal dining sets and all the trimmings (non-breakable glassware and place settings) — they have it all.

No roundup of our go-to furniture retailers would be complete without Ikea, of course. We love to browse their online inspiration galleries that show how easy it is to style up their affordable furniture collections and mix and match pieces into really unique vignettes. Even without a "hack" it's possible to create a patio or outdoor space that feels totally yours. As with most Ikea purchases, shipping can be expensive, and there's always assembly required, so budget in those costs, as well as possibly hiring a TaskRabbit to help you build larger pieces.

If you're looking to make a serious investment in your outdoor furniture, CB2 has what you need. Their offerings can definitely be pricey, but they're so classic and stylish that if you take care of them, they will take care of you for years to come. (In other words: Be sure to buy covers for your furniture!)
