Your Outdoor Oasis Awaits…and It’s On Sale!
A comfortable and appealing outdoor space is always top of mind once the warmer weather hits. We can finally enjoy meals outside or watch the sunset with a glass of wine in hand. When you make your backyard or patio an extension of your indoor living area, you truly maximize your entertaining space. But, where do we start? First, give that patio a deep power wash. You want to remove the layer of dust and grime that inevitably appears over the winter months. Then, assess what needs to be refreshed.
Sometimes just a few new potted flowers will do the trick. But if it’s time for an overhaul to create your open-air retreat, I’ve got you covered. Serena & Lily is known for their quality and elevated pieces that stand the test of time. And… they are having a rare outdoor furnishings sale! Here are some gorgeous sale picks that will help you create a luxurious outdoor oasis right in your own backyard.

Outdoor Sofa & Chairs
I’m loving the classic streamlined silhouette and durability of this teak sofa and matching chairs. The light rattan option also looks updated and fresh. Both are available in multiple fabric options that repel water and stand up to the sun's rays without fading. The texture is durable but still comfortable and inviting.
If you prefer a sectional over a sofa and chairs, both of these options look chic and comfortable (not to mention nap-worthy). I'm partial to teak’s silvery patina as it develops over time, which gives furniture character without looking weathered. But, if you prefer teak’s warmer tones, you can sand the patina off and start anew each season.
Dining Al Fresco
This expandable teak dining table is ideal for small and large groups. The extra panel allows you to accommodate up to 10 guests. A definite weather-friendly option, the planked top allows the rain to drain right through. I like the idea of mixing up the chairs - some with arms, some without, and maybe the wicker sofa chairs on each end.
If you are looking for a perfect poolside chaise, this one fits the bill. The hidden pull-out tray keeps your book, sunscreen, and a cool beverage at your fingertips. You’ll feel like you're on vacation (pool boy not included). This side table, plant stand, or extra seat – whatever you please, is a versatile piece that works indoors and out. The cutout handles on either side make it easy to move.
Once all your furniture is in place, you are ready for guests! Serving trays, a woven runner and fresh placemats - check, check, check.
