Durability and comfort are key when buying an outdoor wicker conversation set. All-weather woven wicker combined with cozy fade-resistant upholstered cushions ensures your new sofa, chairs or sectional will keep their good looks for years. Worry-free clean-up is also a plus when spills and stains occur during the family barbeque.

For breezy, casual layouts or coastal themes, look for wicker patio conversation sets in light neutral hues like cappuccino or driftwood. In modern settings, opt for boxy sectionals and seats in dark mocha or chocolate. When designing a boho garden layout, consider gray rattan chairs that let colorful patterned pillows and throws take center stage.
