Living in NYC, having any inch of patio space is a luxury and a blessing all at once. While I am not one of those lucky New Yorkers who can enjoy a nice glass of wine at sunset on their patio every night, I do get to enjoy my boyfriend’s overly spacious patio that does not get the use (or love) it truly deserves. Before I came along, my boyfriend and his roommates outfitted the space with a hodge-podge of random chairs that looked like they picked it up on the side of the street. So, it was my mission to give the outdoor area a much-needed facelift, but where to begin? The space could technically fit a sectional, but then there wouldn’t be a ton of walking or standing space. Or, we could opt for something smaller to accompany the few existing things they had. The options were limitless!

After months of searching the best configuration, I found the perfect piece: Outer’s Brown Wicker Outdoor Loveseat. Martha Stewart-loved brand Outer had been on my radar for the last few years, but I’d never been in a situation where I could actually be in possession of their elevated outdoor pieces. This was the perfect opportunity to take the incredibly luxe furniture for a spin, and my friends at Outer were kind enough to let us test out this roomy piece. Yes, it is pricey, but listen up! Right now, Outer’s having a 30 percent off sale for Labor Day, and this loveseat is a whopping $900 off(!!), so you’ll want to add a new set to your cart ASAP.

Design Features That Stand Out

My favorite part about Outer’s Brown Wicker Loveseat is that it feels like an extension of the living room. It doesn’t feel like a typical flimsy piece of outdoor furniture that doesn’t have any thought behind it — I could truly sit outside on this thing for hours and not complain about feeling uncomfortable. If the weather was nice all year here, I’d opt to sit on this instead of inside on the sofa. So all you Southern Californians, take note! I’ve only had this piece for a month or so, so I’ll have to report back on how it holds up over time.

One of the best features is the modular design, which allows you to separate the loveseat into two chairs within minutes. The memory foam cushions are what really make this piece feel like a cloud (and make it hard to get up) — and the fabric is machine-washable, which is a game-changer if you plan on eating on this. Overall, this durable piece is made to withstand the outdoor elements — from rain to UV rays. But if a major storm is coming your way and you want to bring the cushions inside, you can quickly wrap them up in the built-in covers (which have a handle, to boot).

What I Loved

  • The built-in cushion covers with handles make it a breeze to carry them inside when a storm is coming
  • Modular design fits any space
  • The ultra-durability of the pieces combined with the 10-year warranty make this item worth the splurge

Good to Know

Afraid to commit without seeing it IRL? You can request fabric swatches for free before you add it to your cart. Simply fill out a short form here, and you’ll be sent the swatches you requested. According to Outer’s website, ” No amount of dirt, wine, coffee, or tea can destroy this fabric.” On top of that, every Outer piece comes with a 10-year warranty so you can feel confident that these pieces are made to stand the test of time (and mess).

Should You Buy Outer’s Brown Wicker Loveseat?
