Outdoor furniture is a tough nut to crack. Speaking from experience as someone who recently put in a patio (after months of deafeningly loud construction), the intersection of style and durability is nearly impossible to find. All the most gorgeous pieces feel like they would wash away after the first rainstorm, and the ones built to last emphasize… functionality over form, to put it politely.
So how does Rove Concepts do it? Their pieces are almost museum-quality in their polished finesse, yet those same premium materials can handle years of life spent en plein air. That’s not to suggest you shouldn’t invest in covers — or that this high level of craftsmanship comes at a bargain price — but investing in pieces from Rove’s collections feels like just that: an investment.
To quote my partner when our shipment arrived: “This is by far the nicest furniture we’ve ever owned.”
- Designs that exude elegance from first glance
- A robust mix of indoor and outdoor options
- Remarkably fast delivery times and responsive Concierge Team
- 30% site-wide discount for members at a relatively low annual fee
We don't like
- The price point makes it tough to build a full collection
- The styles are specific enough that they don’t mix and match with too many other brands
Before taking a tour of the wider world of Rove offerings, I’ll start with my new pride and joy: the Louis Outdoor Sofa ($2142, or $1499 for members). When designing our new patio, my partner and I loved the idea of monochrome furniture offset by splashes of greenery – but the last thing you want with a black-and-white look is for things to feel drab. The Louis’ creamy white cushions (made from fast-drying, UV- and mildew-resistant fabric) are anything but, and the wood detail on the black aluminum frame is the perfect touch to warm things up a little.
So naturally we had to get the matching loveseat too ($1513, or $1019 for members). It’s everything that’s great about the sofa, only smaller, making it the ideal add-on for a wrap-around seating effect. Both pieces are available in light gray fabric for those worried about how easily white stains, though as performance fabrics they’re designed with easy cleaning in mind. I love how these pieces feel stately but not stiff, supportive enough for good posture but cozy enough for unwinding at the end of the day.

MORE WHERE THAT CAME FROM
As it would happen, that’s sort of Rove’s signature: creating pieces that are somehow both grand and inviting at once. I can’t imagine a yard that wouldn’t look ten times better with a few Jericho Sling Chairs ($527, or $369 for members). The silhouette feels familiar, almost inspired by an Old Hollywood director’s chair, but the ribbed cushioning feels both playful and bold. Details like the tan straps attached to the headrest are what justify Rove’s higher price – and having taken one too many trips to the Pottery Barn outlet, I can say honestly their prices aren’t that much lower when it comes to outdoor decor.
And just when you think you’ve seen every coffee table shape in the world, Rove busts out with something organically imperfect like the Kara ($1784 or $1249 for members). It’s almost Stonehengian in its design, but the concrete texture is as modern as it gets. The two-tone look of the Francis Outdoor Coffee Table ($1427, or $999 for members) is even cooler, and offers for a roomier surface for more large-scale entertaining. Plus all of Rove’s woodwork is always with teak, the most reliably weatherproof choice for outdoor furnishings.
CALLING ALL SUNSETTERS
I’d be remiss to end my Rove write-up without a nod to their newest, buzziest collab: the Rove x Oppenheim Group Collection, for the Selling Sunset fans out there. Even if those mega-mansions aren’t your style, there’s no denying these products are killer. The Uma Floor Lamp ($713, or $499 for members) is a statement piece all its own, whether you opt for the black or white carrara marble base. But the piece de resistance, the centerpiece of the collection, is the Berlin Modular Sectional ($9999, or $6999 for members). It’s seemingly infinite, opulent, and available in tons of colorways – just like Christine Quinn’s wardrobe.
TIME TO LEVEL UP
There comes a time for all of us (re)decorators where we’re ready to commit to some Real Furniture Pieces, the kind that won’t just get you through a year or three but will stand the test of time. As hyper-modern as many of Rove’s designs are, there’s a sophistication to them that keeps them from feeling niche and overly trendy. Since the day my Rove pieces arrived, I’ve made constant use of them, and not just to show them off to every guest – they’re fantastic to look at, but even better to build a life around. Even if you are Team Davina.
