I have never been more inspired than I am this year to decorate my patio with furniture and trendy decor! When the pandemic hit two years ago I started browsing interior design websites for inspiration and decided I wanted to create a beautiful outdoor oasis that I could use while working from home and relaxing on the weekend! One thing is for sure, I have been dreaming of a resort-inspired patio with gorgeous upholstered outdoor furniture, a chic bar cart, and an outdoor fireplace. Doesn’t that sound heavenly? 

If you’re searching for a beautiful weatherproof outdoor slipcovered sofa, chair, or sectional, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 20 gorgeous upholstered outdoor furniture that you will love in a variety of styles! 

The Best Upholstered Outdoor Sectionals

Spending time on my patio is one of my favorite pastimes. This morning there was a cool breeze, so I decided to eat breakfast outside before starting my day. It was so relaxing I wanted to spend the entire day there. Thankfully my WIFI is strong today so I can bring my laptop outside and work. While browsing gorgeous upholstered outdoor furniture, I stumbled on the most beautiful outdoor sectionals. Here are a few favorites that you will love!

I can’t get enough of this gorgeous Sundial Outdoor Left-Facing Sectional (it’s also available as a right-facing sectional). It is absolutely stunning and available in tons of different fabrics, colors, and prints. This one, in particular, is called “Perennials® Basketweave – White.” According to the website, it is “woven from 100% solution-dyed acrylic, it will resist all manner of wear and tear – staining, mold, and UV radiation.” Having upholstered outdoor furniture made out of performance fabric is an absolute must as it will be easy to clean!

I love how Serena & Lily adorned the Sundial right facing outdoor sectional with beautiful blue and white stripe pillows with fringe detailing! It is the perfect spot to relax after work or chat with a few friends on the weekend.

How stunning is this Sundial Outdoor chaise sectional? It is available as a left-facing sectional or a right-facing sectional.

According to the website, this channel-tufted sectional is “upholstered in 100% Olefin fabric in Ash.” There are so many great things about olefin fabric, two of my favorite things are that it “is water- and mildew-resistant.”

If there’s one fabric we’ve heard time and time again over the years that is durable and stain-resistant it’s definitely Sunbrella! Not only is it stain-resistant, but it is also mildew and UV resistant.
