1. Modern comfort 

Clean lines doesn’t necessarily mean lack of comfort. Try the Hampton Bay West Park patio conversation set. Its decorative, yet sturdy, aluminum, weather-resistant framing creates a beautiful and appealing framework for the ultra-plush cushions with UV-resistant fabric. For extra comfort, the back cushions come stuffed with super-soft, down-like filling that lets you ease into the seat.

Use accessories such as outdoor pillows and throws in muted grays and blues for added comfort. An outdoor rug is just as as important as the plush pillows. Easy-to-clean and quick to wash away spills, outdoor rugs with patterns strike a balance while also bringing definition to your outdoor space.

Don’t forget to add plants such as succulents and fiddle leaf figs in tall planters.

Set the mood with string lights over your dining table and flickering candles in outdoor lanterns. For the perfect al fresco patio dining sets, choose from mix and match selections to get the right look for your space.
