71 Backyard Furniture Pieces

From Potted Furniture Pieces to Grassy Picnic Tables

— July 25, 2014 — Art & Design
Lounging and eating are two of the best things to do during the summer months and these backyard furniture pieces offer the perfect places to do these activities, especially when it comes to outdoor entertaining.

Since barbecues are a summer staple, it's also handy to have plenty of places for your guests to sit and enjoy whatever you've got cooking on the grill. Although it's easy to opt for something classic like a picnic table, patio set or a relaxing Adirondack chair, there are tons of abstract designs that can't be fit into these groupings of normal backyard furniture styles. No matter how unconventional or traditional you plan to go with furnishing a backyard, there are designs for big and small backyards, as well as budgets.
