THE GREAT OUTDOORS: DESIGNER PICKS FOR SMALL SPACES
So you don’t have the largest outdoor space on the block. It may be the size of a postage stamp, but even the outdoor space challenged deserve an oasis to which they can retreat to soak up some vitamin D or glowing moon rays with a glass of wine.
Here, our designers give their top picks for small outdoor spaces (and it doesn’t hurt that they’re affordable, too!)
I love the bistro chairs and table from Tuliprop on Etsy because it is a classic, light shape and will look great on small patios. The bright green looks beautiful in a garden mixed with colorful flowers, and the chairs can be painted a different hue every summer if you want a little change.

These patio chairs are not only beautiful, they’re made of mesh and allow the rain and moisture to go right through rather than puddle and wear away at the finish. Plus, plastic is easy to clean and doesn’t get hot like metal or stay damp like wood. Double plus—they stack for easy storage.

Don’t let the relaxed look of the Onya Sofa fool you. Durable resin wicker, a powder-coated aluminum frame, and outdoor-friendly cushions create a sofa that’s backyard and rooftop-ready. Paulina loves this sofa because it’s, “a stylish, inexpensive, on-trend (rattan) piece that will fit in a tiny outdoor space. Ready for Margaritas!”

I recommend the 2-pack Wicker & Metal X Frame Patio Chairs from Target. They’re super versatile and the neutral color will go with anything. You can dress them up or down with outdoor accent pillows, accessories, and rugs. They’re sophisticated yet affordable. A win-win in my book.
