If you typically have a houseful of guests, opt for a set that’s big enough to accommodate everyone. Some sets include couches, coffee tables, loungers and even all-weather lamps and rugs. Add pillows for color and comfort. Then, consider what type of material (wood, steel or aluminum) is best for your space and top it all off with an umbrella!
