Though spring is officially here, it still seems too early to dine alfresco (in the northern states, at least). But we like to believe there is something therapeutic about planning the décor of your outdoor space. Think about it: Ordering a patio chair now might incite thoughts of backyard dinner parties on warm summer nights, brunches spent outside with a cold iced tea, and lazy Sunday afternoons curled up in that chair with a guilty-pleasure page-turner. Sooner than you know it, your upgraded patio has arrived—along with sunnier climates. Start shopping now for your outdoor essentials, starting with this season’s best selection of patio chairs under $300.
