20 Outdoor Pieces That Will Transform Your Patio (For Under $100)

Summer, we’re ready for you.

By Phoebe Neuman

While some parts of the country are still experiencing chilly days (looking at you, fam in New England), most of us around here are finally soaking up all the warm weather sun we can. After what felt like another long winter, it’s finally the season to spend as much time outside as possible. I’m talking spring picnics, weekend afternoons biking and hiking around, and, of course, hours upon hours of quality time on our very own patios and decks. If you’ve also been craving a spring home refresh, you’re in luck. We’re rounding up the best affordable outdoor furniture pieces our design-obsessed minds could find. Oh, and even better news—they’re all under $100.

If you’re like us, after a few evenings spent basking out on the patio with a glass of wine, you’ve started to realize your outdoor space could use a bit of TLC. And while we’d all love to transform our yards into Camille’s sunny oasis, there are plenty of ways to pull off a budget-friendly refresh if you aren’t ready to go all-in (yet). It bears repeating: the following affordable outdoor furniture and accessories all clock in at under $100. Plus, they’re perfect for a wide variety of styles—from boho beautiful to farmhouse chic—so you can add in just one or layer up a few without breaking the bank. Now all you need to do is get that outdoor Easter brunch planned.

While terrazzo came back on the design scene a couple of years ago, the on-trend abstract pattern is still holding strong. Case in point, this stunning side table. Pair with a few terracotta planters and geometric print pillows, and the desert-chic look is yours.

I love this table’s mod hourglass shape. Its ribbed details along the base add interest with texture, plus it comes in a rainbow of colors ranging from calming and neutral to bright and punchy—so there’s no way it won’t work in your space.

Hearth & Hand™ x Magnolia Woven Stripes Tassel Hammock

Hammocks may not be for everyone, but for those of us who love a good outdoor nap, they come in clutch. The tassel fringe is undeniably boho and I can’t get enough of the classic striped design. Swing, sway, and sleep away.

nuLOOM Angie Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug

I’m all for pieces that I can use in multiple areas of my home in different seasons throughout the year. The warmer months will see me laying out this area rug on my back deck. But in the winter? I plan on bringing it indoors and rolling it out in the kitchen for a cozy, comfy look.

Three things I love about this rug: It was handwoven by artists in India, it’s made of recycled polyester, and it’s the perfect pop of color for an otherwise muted color palette.

Live in a cooler climate where your outdoor plants won’t survive the winter? These fluted planters work indoors, too.
