As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it’s become increasingly clear that it will alter more than just the way we experience and enjoy recreational activities and relaxation. In fact, until researchers create a safe, effective and accessible vaccine, social distancing — which often means keeping our gatherings outdoors — will remain the norm.

If you’re like me, you probably bought a few inexpensive, portable camping chairs when it seemed like something bigger and better wasn’t worth the investment. Clearly, it’s time for something a bit more functional, especially if you plan to host a few close friends for socially distanced hangs. Whether you have access to a backyard, a balcony, an apartment building roof or a patio, there’s a patio set out there to fit any space and budget. (And while you’re at it, try sprucing up your outdoor space even more with a few of our standout recommendations.)
