You鈥檇 *think*聽outdoor furniture would be less expensive than indoor furniture, since you聽can typically only use it part of the year. (Not you, obvs, California girls.)聽Unfortunately, you鈥檇 be wrong. Outdoor furniture often聽carries a price tag as high as the sky you can see while sitting on it. That鈥檚 why Yardbird has us so intrigued.聽Instead of messing with a bunch of middlemen, they sell high-end outdoor furniture online directly to consumers. Translation: This stuff is more聽affordable than similar furniture from other etailers. Not only that, it may help save the whales.

鈥淲e value the outdoors and have made sustainability a part of our core mission by incorporating聽more than 30,000 pounds of intercepted ocean plastics in our 2018 collection,鈥 Jay Dillon, owner and co-founder of Yardbird, told Brit + Co. 鈥淲e believe the Yardbird customer values our socially conscious approach to design and production.鈥

The company launched as a pop-up operation in Minneapolis as a test last year. The brand passed with flying colors, selling $1 million聽worth聽of product in four weeks. Knowing they were onto something,聽Dillon and his team聽officially launched the online store this spring.

鈥淲hat we鈥檝e been hearing from our customers is that they value the high quality of Yardbird products, and they also value getting quality furniture at a fraction of the cost,鈥 Dillon聽says. 鈥淐ustomers also love our white-glove delivery service and setup, and the fact that we dispose of packaging materials.鈥

The company has 10 core collections that feature聽love seats, sofas, sectionals, dining collections, fire tables, and more. It鈥檚 all simple and sleek, and we can just see ourselves sitting on it, sipping margaritas in the sun. Of course, when we say it鈥檚 affordable, that depends entirely on your budget. Prices range from $30 for pillows to $4,400 for an eight-piece fire table set. They鈥檙e not giving the stuff away, but compared to other high-end outdoor furniture, it鈥檚 definitely competitive.

Now, bring on the warm weather!
