So, you want to turn your outdoor space into a summer retreat? Whether you're making over your backyard or just want to trick out your patio, you can easily create the perfect lounge space for you with the right outdoor furniture.

Whether your style leans more colorful and boho, or neutral and traditional, there's a little something for everyone among these outdoor furniture picks. Shop for separate chairs, sofas, and coffee tables, or go straight for a conversation set or a dining set, depending on what you want to use your space for. And of course, don't forget an outdoor rug to tie it all together.

Outdoor Chairs
For a pop of color, try this set of multi-color wicker chairs from Pier 1, and add cushions (in whatever colors you choose!) for added comfort. Or, turn your attention to these Sunbrella fabric slipper chairs from Anthropologie, with three colors and patterns to choose from. You can also go totally mod with West Elm's handwoven cord and aluminum Huron chair, or curl up with a good book on Pottery Barn's cushy wicker papasan chair.

Outdoor Tables

Show off your flair for the traditional with Serena & Lily's gorgeous round basketweave-pattern table made with resin; keep it sturdy with West Elm's concrete drum table for a fun, chic-but-industrial feel; or turn to this wicker pick from Amazon which features a lift-top with hidden storage underneath. Plus, there's always Anthropologie's teak and metal oblong Melbourne table, too.

Outdoor Sofas

The yellow stripes on this Anthropologie sofa will basically transport you straight to a beach cabana, while Pottery Barn's square-arm wicker sofa will make you feel like you're at a chic, coastal Hamptons house. Go simple and spacious with Wayfair's cushioned sectional, or try West Elm's more modern quilted wraparound settee.

Outdoor Dining Sets

If you plan to entertain and host outdoor dinners and brunches, you'll need an outdoor dining set like these. Whether you choose Target's blue powder-coated steel set featuring four chairs and a glass-topped table, Wayfair's picnic table-inspired set with a long wooden table and two benches, Amazon's more traditional set of four wicker chairs and a matching round table, or Walmart's 7-piece set featuring six director-style chairs? That's up to you.
