It’s a balmy 80+ degrees out in New York City and I, for one, couldn’t be happier. Sure, summer doesn’t officially start for another month, but everyone knows Memorial Day Weekend is the real kick-off to the season. If you don’t have plans yet, then get ready to make some that include relaxing outside on these outdoor seating finds from Apartment Therapy’s Marketplace. Whether you can afford to splurge or are looking to save, these listings are worth a look!

How fab is this faux bamboo Meadowcraft patio set? The aluminum collection includes a sofa, chair, and coffee table with both upper and lower glass tabletops. Absolutely rust-free, this Mid-Century era number dates is surprisingly in near perfect condition! Some minor scuffing on the white powder-coated frame. Seller is offering domestic shipping and local delivery in the Bloomingdale, IL region. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $1,999.

Every time I see these outdoor dining chairs, I picture someone feeding me grapes while gently swaying a palm frond to offer a light breeze. They are the luxurious choice for an al fresco dining chair, but ultimately a bargain when you realize you’re getting a set of five. Made of wrought iron and rattan, these seats are wrapped in a blush pink ostrich skin upholstery. The backs of the white frames have a graphic bamboo peel treatment. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $999.

If the first two options seem rather extravagant, these white stools are a little more down to earth. Perfect for people watching from the fire escape or tucked in a corner of a garden. Upholstered with a gold patterned fabric, this pair is a charming addition to any outdoor living. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $30.
