It seems like all of our favorite design studios and retailers have dropped new sectional sofas, side tables, and even chic firepits over the past few months if not days. To help you get a handle on all of the powder-coated aluminum, weather-resistant faux wicker, and plush Sunbrella-covered cushions fresh on the market, we plucked the most noteworthy brand additions and organized each by newness, below—and there’s more to come. If summer soirees and backyard barbecues aren’t already on your mind, they will be shortly.
Known for its commercial-grade, chic seating, Ledge Loungers’ outdoor furniture would look just as smart in your backyard as it does on the patio of a 5-star hotel. Of all the pieces to choose from the Houston-based brand, we’d stock up on seating primed for optimal rest and relaxation, including the Echo chaise, which features five recline positions. One shopper described the piece as “beautiful and comfy,” adding, “Not only does it look very chic and modern, but I was able to customize the finish and fabric choices. I also bought the nesting table. It all looks so perfect together! We have gotten tons of compliments.” That style flexibility extends to its Adirondack chairs, too, offering a choice of 13 colorways, including five natural wood looks that are made with high-density, UV20-rated polyethylene resin, so you can pop a squat after a dip in the pool or lake without concern over warping or splintering.
There are 11 new pieces of furniture, ranging from dining tables to loungers to a bench, in the AH Outdoor Series from Carl Hansen & Søn. Designed by Alfred Homann, the collection focuses on simplicity, which is evident in the pared-back use of weather-resistant, untreated teak. You can opt to dress up the slats of wood with an equally durable, lightly cushioned textile that can be secured to the frames with built-in ties.
Serena & Lily added new outdoor collections earlier this month, and it’s almost solely focused on seating and dining. From the Kiwah collection, pick between white and black wicker lounge chairs, an all-white sofa, and bleached swivel. The accompanying cushions can be covered in 22 different performance fabrics. If you’re in favor of the brand sticking to its signature styles, then we’d steer you in the direction of the new Oceanpark lounger. Like an elevated beanbag, match the slipcovered seat with the equally soft pouf in Sunbrella’s botanical green, lido navy, or Mediterranean blue stripe. Our favorite part? All outdoor pieces are currently 30% off.
A staple for bistro sets, French-made Fermob just expanded its powder-coated galvanized steel offerings to add a lounger and dining table to its Bellevie collection, and will soon be dropping Adadesk and Bolder in the U.S.. The former calls to mind childhood rocking chairs, whereas the latter is a versatile, all-in-one table for a dining-slash-work-from-the-garden setup. Plus you can now purchase all of the above in a new neutral finish—lapili gray.
Provence is the latest outdoor collection by Los Angeles–based brand House of Leon. As the name suggests, the minimalist iron frames draw inspiration from the South of France, where the idyllic landscape is dotted with vineyards. The elegant silhouettes, with windowpane-like seat backs and table bases inspired by sculptor Diego Giacometti, bring the fabric of the moment—nubby bouclé—outdoors. Equal parts modern and timeless, tap the sofa or dining chairs to lend an elevated, European touch to your backyard. The only caveat? You may be waiting until the end of June for these to ship.
It’s all about the ’70s at Article. It’s easy to spot inspiration from the decade, including an earthy-focused color palette and curvy, chunky silhouettes sported by chairs and coffee tables. New styles also boast dual-purpose pieces. Our favorites include the Toro pool lounger-and-table combo with its eucalyptus-wood base and powder-coated aluminum mechanisms for adjusting between four recline positions. Eyes are also on a playful terrazzo table decked out with extra shelving so you don’t have to choose between keeping a chilled beverage or summer read close.
For the first time ever, Burrow has launched outdoor furniture. The Relay collection delivers on patio dining and lounging with modular sets and stylish stand-alone pieces made with galvanized steel frames, quick-drying foam cushions, and waterproof fabrics. For now, everything is available in two color choices: a neutral salt and moodier shale. But as you can expect from the brand, most items—even the massive, eight-piece modular sectional—will ship in multiple, simple-to-move boxes that are just as easy to break down again for storage by the season’s end.
Woven, formerly Selamat Designs, has dropped a sequence of outdoor-friendly furniture since last month, starting with Natura. Crafted from 95% compostable and recyclable materials, the modular collection features regenerative rattan and bio-based, weatherproof cushions fashioned from latex foam and Texstyle, an Oeko 100–certified fabric crafted from single-use water bottles. More recently, the brand introduced a woven beach chair made with seagrass and featuring an adjustable hinge to take along to the beach or park. Campo, on the other hand, is indoor-outdoor-friendly, sustainably harvested eucalyptus with cotton covers that can be removed for easy cleaning.
We’re gearing up for a series of fresh releases from Neighbor, but for now, we can’t stop talking about Terra, made with the formerly teak-only brand’s new material, aluminum. There’s tons to love about the plump cushions (stuffed with more fill and foam than its predecessor, Haven) covered with recycled Sunbrella fabrics. Pull any of its modular seating up to the brand’s even newer concrete firepit, Mesa, which is powered by natural gas and doubles as a coffee table when not in use thanks to a slatted wood top.
The Malta collection from Castlery consists of an egg-shaped lounge chair and equally round drum and pedestal coffee tables, plus a sofa. The weather-resistant, wickerlike weave sets the foundation for a textural olefin-covered cushion (a fabric known for being UV resistant and quick drying), so summer showers won’t be a worry when decorating an uncovered deck or patio.
Leanne Ford took to the outdoors for her fourth furniture collaboration, Jeannie, with Crate & Barrel. We love that teak is the star of the collection, as it’s paired up with simple, goes-with-anything cushions. But reviewers are also raving about the rock-inspired, sculptural side table, confirming it’s worth the hype. “It’s smaller than a cocktail table but much larger than an end table,” one shopper writes. Another adds, “It’s even better in person.”
The Crate collection veers from Hay’s powder-coated past, though the all-wood chairs and tables are actually reeditions of original designs by Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveled from 1934. The goal was to repurpose a surplus of wood crates, which the blocky frames nod to.
CB2 is seemingly always dropping new collabs, but back in March it released an exclusive collection with designer Ross Cassidy, inspired by a seaside Tuscany hotel, and we can’t stop thinking about. There are six coordinating “suites” to choose from. Pinet Teak, as the name suggests, pairs FSC-certified teak with the plump, textured cushions of sofas, lounge chairs, ottomans, and pool loungers. Nino and Bacio are both collections of all-weather rattan, but that’s where the similarities end; Nino’s frames are sold in a softer gray and sharper silhouette versus the natural browns and curves of Bacio. Colombe is all about fitting into smaller spaces, with compact dining sets and storage tables in the form of green and white powder-coated metals. Remo’s French-inspired looks boast travertine details and, last but not least, Roc offers indoor-passing takes on dining essentials with chunkier cuts of wood chairs gathered around an etched bluestone tabletop.
Created by Canadian British industrial designer Philippe Malouin, Hem’s first outdoor furniture drop—Chop—features a mix-and-match ensemble of stainless steel tables and stackable chairs. Each is offered in bold, earthy powder-coated finishes, including an eye-catching ultramarine blue.
New to Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams’s outdoor range—which already consists of the Sanibel, Del Mar, Alys, Jupiter, Adirondack, and Santorini collections—is Telluride. While limited to covered spaces only, the series of tables all feature rough cuts of Omani marble with hammered edges. And, new this season, you’re now able to customize one of the two recently added upholstered lines (including a collaboration with Rafael de Cárdenas) in a Sunbrella fabric. This option lets you take a sofa or chair from the Haywood Wide Arm, Laurel, Sullivan, Burgess, Hatcher, Jada, or Costello collections from the living room to the back patio.
Since Schoolhouse added to its summer assortment back in April, shoppers have been snatching up the brand’s vintage-inspired folding chairs more than anything else when it comes to outdoor furniture. Available in three bright color combos, all are equipped with fade-resistant webbing and a lightweight, durable metal frame—catch one in our Father’s Day gift guide. Among the newcomers, we also spied this Scandi Adirondack-like chair and matching ottoman that is the work of none other than Skagerak. Both are constructed from slats of 100% FSC-certified teak.
Skagerak’s modular slatted teak offerings never miss, and that hasn’t changed since it’s come under the Fritz Hansen umbrella as Skagerak by Fritz Hansen. In February, the Plank collection expanded to include chairs and tables by Aurélien Barbry using (what else?) FSC-certified teak. And the Banco bench, by Hugo Passos, dropped at the same time. The contoured backrest is fine alone but can be paired up as a double-facing design.
Arhaus’s new outdoor product range is vast, running the gamut of fully upholstered daybeds to traditional solid-teak frames. The 11 collections (plus a few expansions and one dedicated to installing outdoor kitchens) all appear to nail one of the following distinctions: a low profile; modular, easy-to-arrange combinations; or dramatic angles. The prices are definitely in high-end investment territory, but that’s to be expected from the brand.
Last month, RH unveiled its new outdoor collection focusing on rich finishes and sculptural shapes. Case in point: the Trelica collection’s lattice details. Inspired by Brazilian Muxarabi window panels, the dappled, slatted effect can be spotted across chairs, tables, and daybeds drawn up by designers Thomas Bina and Ronald Sasson. Other luxurious launches worth perusing include Cape Town, Cortona, Matira, Oslo, Trieste, Santos, and Solaro.
