Shop Outdoor Furniture
Let's start with Patio Collections/Sets because we believe it's super important to have an amazing area to kick back and relax. Having a nice sofa and chairs outdoors really creates a nice cozy space for you to either lay down or kick your feet up. We've rounded up some great sets we found along the way.

Outdoor Dining Furniture
If you have the space to have a dining set outside, it's the best! There is nothing like taking a good meal outdoors and enjoying it with family and friends - even by yourself for that matter! We live in Minnesota so we try to cherish ALL of the warm months of the year in any way that we can. Taking a meal outside is such an amazing way to do it!
So that leads us to the most important question of the day - Hot Dog or Hamburger?!

Outdoor Area Rugs
Rugs are just as important outdoors as they are indoors! They really complete a space and feel so nice under foot, especially under a dining table! Being able to kick off your shoes outside is such a good feeling and outdoors rugs just keep getting better and better!

The Haugerud's Outdoor Living
This is the Haugerud's outdoor space below. We moved in roughly 5 years ago and have spent some time putting together this space over those years and feel it's such a great space for the whole family and for gatherings. The upper patio we created to be a straight walk out from the eat-in dining space so that it felt like an extension of the interiors main level. During the warmer months of the year we use this upper patio as our dining space, which is again an extension of our kitchen and eat-in area.
In the later months of the summer, the upper patio gets a lot of shade which is nice on the really hot days, especially when eating. But that didn't leave a space where you could sit in the sun so we had the lower patio built to capture that as well. On the lower patio we created a couple of seating spaces. One area with lounge furniture and another bonfire space. We often bring an umbrella down into this space as well if the sun gets too hot.
Of course we're always looking to add a few touches here and there because we spend so much time back here throughout the warm months of the year and this is the perfect weekend to grab stuff with all of the sales going on!
Check out some of our favorites that we've rounded up below!
