Say hello to some serious outdoor lounging.

By Patricia Cunningham

Summer is finally here! And that means heading outdoors to spend as much time as you can soaking up the rays and fresh air, firing the grill and cooling off with a beverage, preferably a nicely chilled glass of rosé. But of course once you are out there you’re going to need somewhere comfy to sit down and relax, and here is where the standard metal patio dining set just doesn’t cut it. What you need is an outdoor sofa.

Ideal for lounging and entertaining, there is no more centrally important item for taking the party outside, well, except maybe a little bug spray. Today’s outdoor sofas come in a range of sizes and price points, and there are literally hundreds to choose from, so we narrowed it down for you to a list of our top ten. Whether you have a modest-sized city terrace or an expansive country patch of heaven, these sofas will transform your outdoor living experience all summer long.
