No matter the size or layout of your outdoor space, a sectional patio furniture set can help make it feel more intimate. AllModern’s Clark 5pc Sectional set offers sleek lines and extra spacious seating that makes this option an excellent addition.

It comes equipped with ergonomic 6.5″ Olefin cushions to ensure maximum comfort, and features water-repellent, UV-protected covers to protect its durability.


No matter the size or style of your balcony or rooftop terrace, durable outdoor furniture is essential to creating an enjoyable outdoor experience. There are a range of choices available to meet both your space and style needs – choose between wicker or metal sectional patio furniture as they both work great in various outdoor setups. Read further to gain more insight into these two furnishings including which types perform better for hot versus cold climates; rain resistance measures; how they hold up over time and more.

Most wicker furniture is constructed with standard white, black, gray and brown finishes that blend easily into any outdoor color scheme. The neutral shades allow brighter hues to stand out while simultaneously making it easier to coordinate with other furnishings such as rugs, accent pillows and throws.

Add vibrancy and character to your wicker sectional by including pillows in vibrant red, blue, green or yellow shades. Water-resistant and fade-proof fabric options ensure that your sofa will continue looking great even after years of use. For convenience and maintenance purposes, look for one with removable and washable cushions.

Iron sectional patio furniture is an ideal option for both hot and cool climates alike, as its durable material withstands various weather conditions. However, it’s important to be aware that when exposed to moisture – including dew on grass, puddles on decks and rain showering down on tables and chairs – this material may rust. To prevent this happening again in future seasons, make sure that you refinish your iron furniture regularly in order to protect it against further rusting.

Replace worn-out and faded cushions with new waterproof options like Sunbrella. These waterproof materials offer durability as well as fast-drying fabric that’s simple to maintain, so they’ll protect you against the elements while being easy to keep clean. Choose from various patterns and colors of fade-proof cushion covers so you’re sure to find the ideal match for your home.

Teak wood is another highly durable material perfect for use in sectional outdoor lounge seating, producing its own natural oil to preserve strength and suppleness, as well as prevent fungal growth on its surface – thus earning it its nickname as an “all-weather” material.


Comfort should always be top of mind when looking for backyard seating, and many sofa sets in Pottery Barn’s backyard seating collection provide this ideal combination.

For instance, the Walker five-piece sectional includes a corner chair, four loveseats and two armless chairs connected by one-of-a-kind accent details to form a spacious sofa with deep seating comfort for a crowd. Its sleek aluminum frame has been finished in dark grey for an elegant aesthetic while fade-resistant Sunbrella fabric boxy cushions add softness and color contrast.

Pottery Barn offers outdoor sectional sofas made of high-quality materials designed to withstand outdoor conditions. Most frames are composed of either rustproof aluminum or recycled plastic frames; natural wood options may also be available. They come complete with quick-dry sofa cushions covered in either olefin (great for deterring abrasion and staining) or Sunbrella material that resist moisture, heat and ultraviolet rays respectively.

While some sofas in the backyard lounge seating collection are designed for lounging, others can also serve as dining al fresco environments. The Sea Island sectional provides the best of both worlds with its durable powder-coated steel frame topped with all-weather wicker over foam seat cushions and backrests – giving an appealing retro appearance with timeless arms, feet and tufted cushions providing that special extra elegance perfect for modern backyards.

No matter if it’s an intimate backyard soiree or a massive summer barbecue, Pottery Barn backyard sectionals offer versatile solutions that are easy to configure. Choose between L-shaped or U-shaped options depending on the layout of your yard, then add outdoor coffee tables or accent tables to keep drinks and snacks within easy reach. As an upgrade option, add a propane-powered fire pit table so your party doesn’t end when nightfall arrives!


Patio sectionals add an elegant touch to any commercial outdoor seating arrangement, creating a cozy retreat for clients and guests to unwind in comfort. As modular sofas with individually deep-cushioned sections, these chic chairs can easily be rearranged or reconfigured depending on the space in which they’re being used.

Metal patio sectionals come in an assortment of styles to meet the aesthetic needs of your backyard. Stainless steel is known for its sleek and stable look while aluminum is more lightweight but both materials can withstand Mother Nature with little upkeep required – Marianne Lipanovich of Houzz recently highlighted this topic. Aluminum also tends to be less costly than its wrought iron and cast aluminum counterparts making it the go-to choice for budget shoppers.

Metal patio sectionals can add the finishing touch to a modern or rustic design while still offering plenty of seating and entertaining space for friends and family. Choose an L-shaped sectional with matching outdoor coffee tables for an elegant minimalist aesthetic, or go classic with traditional wrought iron or iron-and-brass set for classic backyard setting.

At Urban Furniture Store, you can find an industrial-inspired sectional for your restaurant or hotel’s rooftop terrace, cozy nook for guesthouse balconies or spacious family pool deck from four to eight-piece sets that meet any of these criteria. Mix-and-match modular sofa components to customize a lounge seating area before completing your space with accent tables or propane fire tables for the finishing touch.

Metal sectionals offer neutral shades that complement any outdoor color palette, seamlessly blending in with white, black, brown and beige tones while helping brighter hues such as yellow, green, red, blue and pink pop out against them. Some styles even resemble more organic wicker and rattan textures for even greater styling options.
