TL;DR: Outdoor furniture is up to 40% off as part of The Big Outdoor Sale at Crate and Barrel, which is still going on as of May 6. Outdoor rugs and planters are also 20% off.
Most summers, Instagram stories feel like a flex battle of who’s at the coolest rooftop bar. This year, it will be who has the coolest patio setup. Mark our words.
Home improvement (whether that be DIY stuff or redecorating) has become a major theme during isolation. Our humble abodes are the only scenery a lot of us have right now — and if we’re going to be stuck like this for the foreseeable future, it might as well be in a space that makes you happy. A lack of weekend plans or vacations is also giving many people the free time to complete the project they’ve been putting off for three years.
But, for obvious reasons, you may not feel like waiting in a 15-person-deep line at Lowe’s. Hit up The Big Outdoor Sale at Crate and Barrel instead: Outdoor furniture is up to 40% off, and there’s a way bigger selection than what any physical store can house. The outdoor furniture selection includes patio umbrellas and pillows, plus 20% off planters, dining and glassware, and outdoor rugs.
Here are a few of the items that caught our attention:
Morocco Oval Loveseat — $976 (regular price $1,149)
Is it just us or do these cushions look way comfier than your typical patio sofa? This wicker loveseat feels like a cozy mix between a couch and a hammock, and the size is great for smaller outdoor spaces that only need room for two people.
Dune nesting tables — $296 (regular price $349)
Nesting tables are one of the first pieces of patio furniture you should buy. When pulled apart, they’re two versatile, matching end tables for the price of one. When pushed together, the fact that they only take up the footprint of one table makes them a solid choice for cramped spaces.
Wall-mounted plant boxes (set of 4) — $95.20 (regular price $119)
As a plant parent, running out of floor space for your planters happens quickly. This wall-mounted box planter will look great with compact or tailing plants, and provides a cohesive home for them instead of matching four pots. Note: It does not come with screws.
Vaso acrylic margarita glass — $3.96 (regular price $4.95)
You may not be hitting up a marg happy hour any time soon, but investing in real margarita glasses can help your homemade ones feel a little more authentic. At less than $4 a pop on sale, you can even grab a few for when you do get to host. They look like glass but are acrylic, which won’t shatter if dropped.
