The snow has melted, the mud has mostly cleared, and you’re left looking at your patio and wondering how the heck you’ll be able to transform it from a pile of dusty bricks and old leaves into the summer oasis you deserve. Patio furniture can be shockingly expensive, but let’s be real – the furniture you’re going to leave out in the hot sun and summer rain shouldn’t be pricier than the stuff you cozy up on indoors. Affordable outdoor furniture does, luckily, exist. Whether you’re going for bohemian or modern, need full-on furniture or just some finishing touches, these are some of the best trendy outdoor furniture finds this spring.
