With Easter behind us, I’m counting the days until Memorial weekend. (But really, aren’t we all?) Something about the spring season makes me want to spend as much time outside as possible. If you’ve also got a longing for al fresco living, then check out Apartment Therapy Marketplace for patio furniture you can pick up locally. I’ve rounded up a few tempting finds that will have you basking in the sun.

Pour me up a large frosty lemonade and consider me set for the season with a bunting porch glider. Such a rare find, this 1950’s outdoor furniture has been restored and glides smoothly. What makes it truly special is the Bundle of Wheat pattern. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $550.

Pleasant weather is Chicago is a fleeting thought. If you’re not careful, you might miss the breezy, comfortable days between coat season and the hot and humid scorchers of summer. Get yourself ready with a pair of retro aluminum lawn chairs. Light and easy to move, makes this find one you can trot out for concerts in the park, a rooftop party or an afternoon at the beach. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $65 for the pair.

Getting excited about sunny weather in Los Angeles is like getting excited about another Fast and Furious movie—you know exactly what to expect. That said, don’t limit your enthusiasm for a great deal like new outdoor umbrella for half the retail price. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $45.

How inviting is this Ritts rattan patio set? The vintage settee comes with two tables, all in excellent condition. Small details like the carvings and painted wood make unlike anything you find new at a local shop. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $1,250.

Take your pick from both double and single vinyl patio chairs. The avocado green is a friendly flashback to the 1970’s. These seating options are ideal for tiny New York balconies or even fire escapes. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $75 each or $100 for a double.
