5 Outdoor Furniture Essentials You Need

5th Jan 2023

You can probably picture the last time you had friends over to catch up with and enjoy food and drinks. More importantly, can you see in your mind's eye where it happened? Of course! Your backyard! Your backyard is the best place to personalize your home life. It’s the go-to space to escape, enjoy a break from everyday life, and have a fun family time or dinner with friends. Because of that, it's important to take the time to decorate and transform your backyard into the best outdoor oasis - a place where you can have barbecues and make memories. A backyard transformation is a captivating idea: it's a total makeover of the outdoor area of your house, something that means putting luxury furniture on top of a lush lawn or patio. What's the best part of that? You don't have to make that much effort to make it happen! You can bring that fantasy into reality by choosing the right outdoor furniture today. If you don't know where to start, let us give you a little push in the right direction! We have 5 different outdoor essentials that will transform your patio space and make it a cozy spot you’ll never want to leave. 

Loveseat Seating Sets

Nobody likes to stand around in an empty backyard. That’s why having the right seating set is vital for successful get-togethers like barbecues and game nights. Because of that, your seating set is the heart and center of your backyard - and it’s a good idea to choose furniture that fits your life. 

Think about it: every time you host a dinner, birthday, or similar event, everyone gathers around the sectional or sofa to share stories and eat food. You can make that happen with the right loveseat seating set. At the same time, you will need to choose a set knowing it'll be the focal piece that sets the tone for the rest of your outdoor décor. Do you want to find the right loveseat for your backyard? We recommend the Sea Pines 6 Piece Outdoor Wicker Seating Set with Swivel Gliders. It's perfect, no matter your family size. 

There's enough room for a big family to sit together or for two people to stretch and relax. Have a lot of guests to accommodate? No problem! You can rearrange this set with ease to fit any occasion. What's the best part about having a quality loveseat? It combines both style and comfort to create an outdoor piece that’s not only essential but also adds meaning to your space! 

Outdoor Dining Sets

Does it get any better than enjoying the fresh air while you eat fine dining with family and friends? To make that experience even better you need the right size patio table and the right number of chairs. With the right set you’ll be prepared for any occasion!

Be it a relaxing evening grilling burgers with the family or large get togethers with all your friends, dining sets are essential to live your best outdoor life. That’s why at Tortuga Outdoor we offer loads of high-quality, super stylish dining sets that are crafted to fit any need. We recommend our Portside 5pc Outdoor Wicker Dining Group for smaller families. With its beautifully crafted hand-woven wicker you'll have the perfect place for your family to sit down and catch up after a long day. 

Or invite your friends over for a game night in a super cozy spot. We also have the Portside 7pc Outdoor Wicker Dining Set for bigger families or anyone who likes to entertain. It’s attractive, comfortable, stain resistant, and makes for a hearty set that oozes homestyle appeal. You'll have the perfect place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the outdoors no matter what dining set you choose. Be careful! After buying either set, your backyard will be the go-to place for family reunions, so be ready to become the perfect host.


Conversation Sets 

Do you want to give your backyard a stylish makeover? A conversation set might be just the thing your space needs to stand out! Being our most versatile option, these sets bring everything your next family get together needs: a small table, a sofa, and lounge chairs. 

Picture you and your family hanging around during a barbecue: everything starts on the chairs and then moves to the sofa, while the table remains at the heart and center of it all. You can envision how your backyard changes as you make the most out of its potential! It's the perfect furniture set for deep conversations and intimate moments with friends and family. 

If that sounds like the right thing for you then we recommend our Portside Plantation Wicker Rocking Chair 3pc Set to cover the chair and side table combo. It's where style meets comfort: the beautiful, wicker chairs feature an ergonomic design plus a tan cushion that'll make you feel like you never want to stand up again. 

Cozy Loungers 

A cozy lounger is perfect as a finishing touch for a 3-piece conversation set: that's where you'll go after rocking back and forth in your Portside rocking chair because you're so relaxed you need to lay down. It's also the go-to choice for a moment of poolside relaxation. 

Don't think a cozy lounger isn’t for you just because you have a small backyard - it's the other way around! This piece of furniture is perfect when there's little space and you need to make the most out of it. What's the best part of owning a lounger? It's so versatile you won't believe it! Lay flat for a quick afternoon nap outdoors or sit upright and enjoy your favorite book comfortably surrounded by nature. You can do both: start with a little literature and nap when you start to nod off. Do you want the best cozy lounger for your backyard? 

We recommend our Sea Pines Chaise Lounge. Made from stain-resistant wicker, you'll have no issues leaving it outside no matter the weather. Its beautiful design and vibrant colors will be the perfect poolside piece for your backyard. No pool? No problem! Choose a small part of your backyard as the designated reading and napping area! 

Fire Table 

Don’t let the cold keep you inside when the season changes. A fire table is a perfect ally to fight against winter when you love the outdoors. With its smooth, full flames and just the right amount of warmth, you’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor space all year round! 

Are you looking for a fire table to make your cozy dreams come true? Take a look at our 5pc Rio Vista Fire Table Chat Set. When it’s placed front and center of your backyard, you'll have a warm glow that will make everyone feel invited to come outside and enjoy a nice time, no matter the season. Our fire table sets come with chairs that feature powder-coated steel frames and weather-resistant wicker in sandstone colors.

They combine durability and style to create a beautiful set that’s hard to find anywhere else. Watch the fire, though! The flames come from a stainless burner ring with a 50,000 BTU output which guarantees everyone will stay warm. If that sounds like enough to stay outside all year round, it's because it is! That means you're one fire table away from enjoying the outdoors from winter through summer and back again.
