Best Patio Conversation Sets for 2024

What Kind of Patio Conversation Set Should You Buy?

If you’re looking to add a conversation set to your patio, look no further! As the expert on patio furniture, we are here to help. When choosing the best conversation set for your space, there are many options to choose from – set size, material, chair types, cushions, and more! You will also need to keep in mind the amount of company you regularly have, how much outdoor space you’re working with, and what look fits best with your style. We’ve created a list of the best patio conversation sets by material to help you find the perfect set for your budget, needs and style. To make sure you’ll love your outdoor conversation set for many years to come, we’ve based our list on the following three categories:

  • Value - To determine the value of an outdoor seating set, we not only look at price but also the features, quality of materials, construction and design. For example, some types of fabric add to the cost but are superior in quality.

  • Durability - We determine durability by considering several different factors: materials, quality of construction, ability to handle outdoor elements and amount of care needed for upkeep. All of our furniture is outdoor rated, however, there are some materials that require less upkeep and are more durable than others. Read our Guide to Outdoor Furniture Materials and Patio Furniture Cleaning Guides for more information.

  • Features - Different features such as types of tables, included cushions (and the fabric used to make them) and various seating options (loveseats, sofas, swivel rockers, etc.) are just some of the features we consider to determine the value of an outdoor conversation set.

Best Cast Aluminum Patio Conversation Sets

Our best-selling outdoor material is cast aluminum. It is made by filling molds with molten aluminum and then welding the solid pieces together. Unlike extruded aluminum, cast aluminum is completely solid. Cast aluminum patio conversation sets are sturdy, require minimal maintenance, are very easy to clean, can have more detailed designs and do not rust. They are sturdy enough that they won’t easily be blown away by wind but are still light enough to move around.

Best Aluminum Patio Conversation Sets

Aluminum is one of the most enduring and bestselling outdoor furniture materials. Extruded aluminum patio conversation sets are hollow frames, designed to be far lighter than cast aluminum and easier to move — which makes them easier to blow over, too. As a rule of thumb, that lightness means you can bend or dent them with less effort. However, some manufacturers build supportive metal into the extrusion, which helps withstand those unfortunate bangs and thumps.

Best Teak Patio Conversation Set

Teak is the most popular wood type in terms of outdoor furniture. Because of its high oil content, teak is naturally resistant to bug infestation, rotting, warping, splintering and outdoor elements. Regularly treat your teak conversation set with a teak sealer to keep the golden-brown color, or leave untreated and the teak will age to a beautiful silver gray.
