Editor’s Picks: 10 Outdoor Finds Perfect For Small Spaces
The first long weekend of the season is coming up, and like most of us, I can’t get outdoor living off my mind! Thankfully, the stores are well-stocked with all-weather furniture and accessories, making it the perfect time to plan a dream outdoor space (or, if you already have a nice set-up, just refresh a thing or two). But it can be tough to find pieces that suit smaller spaces, like city balconies, compact terraces and narrow backyards. So here, I’ve rounded up a few of my top picks to make the most of the room you have — and all the sunny days ahead.
The slim Lucinda chair from CB2 is the perfect scale for smaller dining spaces. Its mint green color and matte, powder-coated finish are perfectly pretty and fresh. Bonus: It’s a stackable design, so you can easily store extra chairs when not in use.
This stylish chair is both comfortable and affordable, and folds up for easy storage — or toting to the beach! I love the leaf-print sling, but it also comes in a classic stripe.
These mercury-glass lanterns shimmer by day and cast a warm glow at night. A fresh alternative to candles, they also keep tabletops clear. Hang a few at different heights for an exotic look.
Double-duty pieces are essential for small spaces. This waterproof deck box lets you stash your outdoor cushions in a dry place, and is sturdy enough to be used as a bench. I’d push it up against a wall and layer it with outdoor pillows for an extra hit of color and pattern.
This clever parasol doesn’t need a heavy base; it simply attaches to a railing for instant shade and UV protection. I particularly love it in a beautiful sky blue.
This compact work station from Crate & Barrel is super versatile. You can use it for outdoor projects, like repotting plants, and then convert it into a bar for entertaining at night.
Garden stools, like this white ceramic design, are a small-outdoor-space staple. They’re easy to move around, make great side tables, and can be used as casual seating.
The neutral wood tone of this outdoor dining table from Wayfair means you can pair it with chairs in any color you like. Place it against a wall for everyday use (and a smaller footprint), and fold up the leaf when entertaining larger crowds.
