Buy Your Outdoor Furniture With DFO Home! There's nothing quite like sitting out on your patio in the evening, enjoying a cool breeze and a beautiful sunset while relaxing on comfortable, stylish furniture. Whether your style tends towards the super-casual, like hammocks and Adirondack chairs, or you prefer a sleek, modern look, having the right outdoor furniture can make all the difference between an unused patio or backyard and your own personal relaxation-and-entertainment zone.

What should you buy for your outdoor furniture? Naturally, the answer depends on what you have in mind. Are you looking for chaise lounges to put next to your pool, or a patio set for serving cocktails and appetizers? Outdoor furniture isn't limited just to seating: most retailers also carry chimineas and fire pit tables both for ambience and heating purposes, shades and curtains for privacy and protection from the sun, even swings just for the fun of it.

Dezignable

DEZIGNABLE Visit Site

The Dezignable brand focuses on being a "personal stylist for your home", offering design services combined with a unique selection of home decor products. Take one look at their Outdoor Furniture selection and you'll see that they offer chairs, dining sets, rugs and many other items that are much more on-trend than what you'll find at your typical big-box retailer. Of course, that kind of style comes with a price tag; expect to spend quite a bit more when shopping at Dezignable.

Already have an idea of what you're looking for? Use the photos or the left-hand navigation to narrow down your options in the following categories:

  • Outdoor Dining: Tables, Chairs, Sets, Bar + Counter Stools, and Bar Tables
  • Outdoor Lounge Furniture: Outdoor Chairs, Rocking Chairs, Outdoor Sofas, Outdoor Chaise Lounges, and Lounge Sets
  • Outdoor Accent Furniture: Coffee + Side + Console Tables, Ottomans + Poufs, Garden Stools, Benches, and Fire Pit Tables + Accessories
  • Outdoor Accessories: Pillows, Planters + Plant Stands, Gardening Accessories, Outdoor Lighting, and Patio Furniture Covers + Storage
  • Outdoor Rugs
  • Outdoor Game Tables

Once you've narrowed down the options by category, scroll down a little further on the results page: you'll find further sorting choices such as Color, Shape, and Brand. You'll need to hover over the image of any product that interests you to see its name and price, or click on it to get more detailed information.

Not sure what you want, or looking for design help? You may want to consider joining Dezignable's Swank program. The membership fee is $99 per year, and perks include free shipping and 15% discount on all products, along with the assistance of a personal "Swank Stylist". There wasn't much information about the Swank program other than those few details; we would have liked to see more about the process of working with the design specialist.

Be aware that, as a smaller, boutique-style company, Dezignable has a number of products that are custom-made, which adds to your expected shipping time. Although there's no posted shipping rate, we were able to determine that the average shipping charge is 10% of the order total. That's pretty steep, compared to most of the other outdoor furniture retailers we reviewed who offer free shipping on all or most orders.

Dezignable does have a decent return policy on all products that are not made-to-order: 30 days after delivery, with no restocking fees. Customers are responsible for any return shipping costs, and the outdoor furniture must be returned in original condition in order to receive a refund.

There's also not a lot of buzz about Dezignable's products, positive or negative. Dezignable did not have a listing with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our review, and most of the customer comments we found were with respect to their design services and not their product quality. Because of the higher price tag and high shipping costs, we wonder if the average customer will feel confident enough to shop with Dezignable. In the future, we'd love to see more customer reviews and testimonials on the products available on the site, to see if they're worth the higher cost.

Omni Furniture

OMNI FURNITURE Visit Site

OMNI Furniture carries a wide range of outdoor furniture and related accessories, from bistro sets and cocktail tables to swings and gliders.

Shopping the site isn't as smooth as many of OMNI's competitors. You'll start by choosing a category under the Outdoor link at the top of the page. From there, you'll be taken to a results page that can only be sorted by price, product name, or manufacturer. We would have liked to see more options for filtering the results, such as color or material.

Once you've selected a product, you can see a brief description, along with tabs at the bottom for specifications, shipping info, and any available reviews. We noticed that the photos of almost every piece of furniture seemed like they had been taken in someone's backyard instead of being professionally done. We also didn't find any products that actually had a customer review, and many items had very little information in the specifications tab. For example, when we looked at a side table, the only specifications offered were the manufacturer name and the product weight. With items as large as patio furniture and tables, most shoppers will want dimensions to know if their available space can accommodate what they buy.

What does shipping cost with OMNI? You'll want to check each individual item, as the store's policy was unclear. It gives the impression that orders over $100 ship for free within the lower 48 United States, unless you live in a remote delivery location.

Several issues with the OMNI site left us scratching our heads. Unlike most retailers, we had to disable our ad-blocking software to view primary parts of the page (e.g. the OMNI Pride section highlighted at the top of the page). We also found several typos and mistakes that had us wondering if the site's operators are based in the US, despite numerous promises on the page describing OMNI's commitment to America and American workers. The site also describes a rewards program in the links at the bottom of the page, but there was no mention of it anywhere else on the site.

Finally, OMNI Furniture is the only outdoor furniture retailer we found that allows shoppers to haggle over pricing: most in-stock items have a "Make an Offer" button where you can tell OMNI what you'd like to pay for your dining set, outdoor bar stools, or chaise lounge.

This last feature may be directly related to the fact that OMNI Furniture is a drop shipper: in other words, they carry no inventory of their own, but instead serve a as a middleman that passes your order along to the manufacturer. This leads to questions about OMNI's returns policy, which states that OMNI will only help you to contact the manufacturer in the event of a return. Their policy further states that items have to be returned within 15 days of delivery - half as much time as what is usually offered by their competitors - along with hefty charges of 25% restocking fees, plus paying for all shipping costs and an administrative charge to OMNI.

On a positive note, OMNI Furniture did have a respectable "B+" rating with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our review, indicating that they've done an acceptable job in responding to any issues that arose. Unfortunately, we couldn't find any reviews, positive or negative, describing customers' shopping experience with OMNI Furniture.

We're concerned with the lack of feedback from actual shoppers, and the questions raised when shopping the OMNI Furniture website. We suggest you consider the more highly-rated stores in our review for your outdoor furniture shopping needs.

As you think about what you need to make your ideal outdoor space, you'll want to give some consideration to what materials are used. By design, most outdoor furniture is designed to be weather-resistant, but some materials can withstand heat, cold, rain and snow easily, while others will need to be moved indoors during times of more extreme temperatures.

You may be surprised to know that buying patio furniture and other outdoor items is often easier and more affordable when you shop online. Even on large, bulky things like lounge chairs and tables, many retailers offer free shipping, saving you the hassle of having to drive around town to find what you need - and then hoping that it will fit in your car for the ride home! What should you look for when choosing an online store for your outdoor furniture? Keep these criteria in mind:

  • Selection. Does the store have a wide variety of products to choose from? Can you get items in a number of colors, materials, and styles? How many brands does the retailer carry in stock?
  • Price. Are the prices competitive with other stores? Are there any discounts or other money-saving perks like free shipping? Will the store match the price if you find your furniture somewhere else for less?
  • Return Policy. If you need to return your purchase, will the store allow it? And, if so, will you be charged a restocking fee?
  • Customer Satisfaction. How does the store measure up when it comes to keeping their shoppers happy? Is the customer service department responsive and helpful when issues arise with products or delivery?
