The 2016 patio season is roaring away and we’re excited to say we’re having a great year helping people make their backyards even more beautiful (not to mention cozier) with the highest-quality patio furniture for the most reasonable price online! We’re also pleased to say that one of our own personal best-loved brands, Sunset West, is one of the biggest hits of 2016! Sunset West is a well-known name in the patio furniture industry, with a brand that has become synonymous with quality and elegance. All of their furniture is unique and well-made, but of course, we have our favorites. So, which of Sunset West’s many awesome sofa sets make the cut, earning the distinguished title of “Patio Productions Favorite”? Read on to find out!
Please note this is not a list of the “best” outdoor sofa sets by Sunset West. We love the brand, and we think it would be too hard to objectively assess all their items against one another. Besides, taste is subjective, and our personal favorites may not fit well with your sense of style. We wrote a post on the top patio furniture brands back in 2014 and update it every year; if you’re looking for the “best” patio furniture, that may be a better place to start.
These are the Sunset West outdoor sofa sets that have us inspired for 2016:
This is one of the first Sunset West models we added to our catalog, and it has proven to be one of our perennial best-sellers! This classically sophisticated set features a dense outdoor wicker cable with elegant knotting and weaving. We love it because it’s so timeless and classic in its appeal that it works with almost any patio or deck setup.
The full set includes a 5-seater sofa (1 corner piece and 2 arms – a right-side loveseat and a left-side loveseat). An optional coffee table, end table, and additional sofa sectional middle will take the set to new heights of style and grandeur.
We think the Monterey Sofa Set is going to be a big hit for 2016. The all-weather aluminum frame features a style that is fun and playful, without being childish or excessive. Whimsical curves and sophisticated, well-balanced structural work combine to create something that is both cool and cute.
The set includes 2 club chairs, a 3-seater sofa, and the coffee table. You can add optional end tables to really bring the set to life and make your summer’s outdoor entertaining even more… well, entertaining!
Are you a fan of classy outdoor aluminum sets like the Monterey above, but wish it was just a bit… slimmer? The elegant and beautifully svelte Provence sofa set may be the perfect piece of patio furniture for you.
Tough and durable despite its lithe and flexible appearance, the 4 pc Provence Set is perfect for relaxing outside with included rocking chair and billowy cushions, or for casual morning dining over the glass and iron coffee table. Set includes a 3-seater sofa, 1 club chair, 1 rocker, and the coffee table with glass top. We love the rocker so much we had to add the set to this list!
4.) The 4 pc Venice Sofa Set
Bold and strappy, the Venice sofa set is a more-daring-than-usual addition to Sunset West’s lineup, and we just love that! The modern style surely isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but its inspired design paired with Sunset West’s uniformly flawless manufacturing makes for patio furniture that is as comfortable and durable as it is eye-catching.
And heads will certainly turn with this sofa set on your patio or deck! Strappy furniture is certainly an up-and-coming trend in interior and exterior design, as it allows for playful texturing and patterns that you wouldn’t normally see in products like these; Sunset West is leading the way with the Venice set! This set includes a 3-seater sofa, 2 club chairs, and a coffee table with glass top.
Versatility is the name of the game with the 8 pc Emerald Sectional Set. The sofa is a hand-on-decorator’s dream come true, allowing for a wide variety of possible permutations and designs. The ottomans can be used as a cushy surface for your weary feet, a flat tabletop for drinks and dining, or even as an extension of the sofa itself – the ottomans are the exact width and depth of the middle sectionals, they only lack the back support – which, incidentally, makes for great lounge-style seating! Few sets are better for a nice afternoon siesta than the Sunset West Emerald Sectional Set, which is why it makes our list of 5 favorites.
The set includes 4 sofa middle sections, 2 corner sections, and 2 ottomans.
