I want to have it all.
I want a gorgeous outdoor dining set that’s functional, stylish and ever-ready to entertain guests for a scrumptious barbecue feast on any given weekend.
I want a modern, luxe outdoor sofa set that reflects my personal style and preference for quality finishes, allowing for relaxation and friendly conversations, wine glasses in hand.
And I want to have them both in a suburban backyard with limited space. Crazy, right?
But who says I can’t have it all. I can – and I do – courtesy of a little shuffling on my part and this stunning Settina 9pc Estate Collection from The Home Depot Canada.
I’ve been working on turning my backyard into an oasis for some time now. First, we designed a stamped concrete patio and furnished it with a beautifully intricate outdoor dining set from The Home Depot. Next, I adopted a green thumb, and with the help of a foliage master, created a mini garden to flank either side of the patio. My backyard retreat was finally coming together! It was just missing one thing: a place to stretch out and relax. However, given the limited size of our patio, I was unclear about my options.
Thank goodness for The Home Depot’s incredible selection of patio furniture. From conversation sets to sectionals, lounge chairs to benches, it’s pretty much certain you’ll find something to fit your needs and suit your fancy. I had a wishlist for my patio furniture – clean sleek lines, a contemporary design and quality handmade construction. Thankfully, I found exactly what I was looking for in the Settina 9pc Estate Collection.
Constructed from hand welded heavy gauge powder-coated aluminum framing covered in thick all-weather hand woven resin wicker, this set is built to withstand the elements. All cushions and accent pillows are constructed from weather, UV and mildew resistant Olefin fabric – which, given our current summer “situation”, is definitely a need to have.
The set, which ships directly to your home for only $39 when you order online, includes nine (9) easy to handle modular pieces: two club chairs, one left armchair, one right armchair, one armless chair, two ottomans, one coffee table and one occasional table.
Since the set comes fully assembled, the only thing you have to do is decide on your configuration! Create a sectional or set up four standalone club chairs. Spread the pieces out or settle on a more compact design to make the most of a small space, as I’ve done. Regardless of your current or future outdoor living area layout, the versatile, the Settina 9 pc Estate Collection will add practicality and panache to your outdoor living space!
The set comes with perfectly coordinated accent pillows that just happen to match my dining set as well. It’s like this patio furniture was created for me – and my kids, who aim to spend every waking moment outside. They’d rather be hanging out in our “outdoor living room” than anywhere else!
(Also, mad props to me for fitting an 8-foot kiddie pool on our 8.5-feet wide patch of grass. I’m all about using my space wisely! And as you can see from the photo below, at least one of my kids takes full advantage of the water fun. The kid’s photo bombing prowess is in stealth mode.)

As for me, I’ll be sneaking out to enjoy some “me time” on the patio. Of course, I may have to nudge this little freeloader out of the way first. Hey, even Spider-Man needs a break sometimes.
