Patio furniture???

Now that I have the inside of my house (mostly) furnished…patio furniture? My brain is fried. What do I want? Where do I buy it from? Is there anywhere that I can buy preassembled so I don’t have to assign another task to dh? Will it go on sale for Black Friday?  What is comfortable? What lasts? Does nothing last and it just has to be replaced every couple years regardless? We are in the south so it will be nearly year round use. 
 

It’s going under a covered patio (but open on the sides so exposed to some weather. I don’t need a table. We’ll have a small propane fire pit (safe for use under covered patio-we have high ceiling clearance, a fan etc. and enough clearance from the house, I am fire paranoid so I have researched this). So we don’t need a dining set- just some chairs/loveseat to sit around outside. I would probably like one or two particularly comfy chairs for myself to enjoy my coffee (or wine) and the mountain view 😊 but mostly just seating that can be flexible and moved around for the circumstances is fine. We are casual people so comfort and function is going to rule over style. 
 

We don’t need to buy it right now- we can always use camp chairs and make do until I find what I want or wait for a sale. But I am kind of in buying and getting set up mode so I’d be happy to check this off my list now. 
 

Anyone have a kind they love or hate? A good place to buy from? I’m weary of decision making! But I would like to enjoy fall on my patio…

If you’re a Costco member, their outdoor furniture gets great reviews. There is none in the stores right now, but Yiu can shop online, and have it delivered. It might even be worth buying a membership for.

 

I am not a Costco member but I had thought about this and there is one close to my new home. Thank you!

The pool lounge chaise by my condo pool have survived more than 17 years of usage and still look gently used. I don’t know the brand though. My kids like the adjustable heights for the back rest portion and there are cup or mini table attachments you can use for those

Agree about Costco.
 

We got ours on clearance at Lowe’s in late summer/early autumn. It was already assembled and we got a deal because it was the floor model. Even if you don’t want a table, think about surfaces to put drinks/books/etc on. 

Oh yeah we could use side tables I just meant I wasn’t looking for a full dining set. Thank you!

I bought new patio furniture last year at Christmas.  One thing to keep in mind is that most patio furniture will list a weight limit for each chair.  I tried to find a set with a higher limit.   I also found that a lot of chairs with sides or arms are a little narrow, so you might want to keep that in mind.
