Outdoor Conversation Sets

When looking for Outdoor Conversation Sets for sitting and relaxing in your patio area, the Resin Wicker material should be on your list.  With a resin wicker patio conversation set, you will get a set that will take little upkeep and have the rich look of rattan wicker at a fraction of the cost.

Most resin wicker is made from recycled plastic, this makes it good for those who want to do something to help the environment.  The color can be blended in when the plastic is made, you will not have a painted surface that may peel over time.

The biggest problem for most of these sets is the quality of the cushions, storage for the cushions when not in use is a must to keep your set looking like new for several years.  For some of my storage solutions for your cushions, see my post here.

You don't need a big space of any of these outdoor patio conversation sets, just an area that is at least 10 foot on each side will give you enough space to not squeeze your furniture together.  Smaller areas should look at a bistro or set with two chairs for their outdoor seating, look at some of my examples here.

Now let us look at these six wicker patio furniture sets and see what works best for your outdoor seating needs.

My final thoughts on these patio furniture sets

 

Depending on the look you are going for, this will make a difference in the choice of the above resin wicker outdoor conversation sets.  None of these sets will break the bank, if you are like me you do not have a lot of money to purchase patio furniture.  I like the Lakewood Ranch set for the looks, thick cushions and simple assembly.

Color choices, table styles, and resin wicker looks are very different in each of these sets.  The size of your patio space can go into your decision making if you don't want to be too crowded when sitting.
