When it comes to furnishing a small patio or apartment balcony, there aren't a ton of options that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional in confined spaces. Instead of dragging out folding chairs every time you want to be outside, consider a three-piece furniture set. It's a simple solution for small-space seating woes.

Three-piece furniture sets, sometimes referred to as conversation sets or chat sets, typically include two armchairs and a matching side table. Often lightweight, they offer compact outdoor seating for two people. And since they're meant to withstand the elements, when winter comes, you won't have to worry about finding storage space.

Thankfully, there's a great selection of patio seating options at significant markdowns at Target's Deal Days Sale. Through June 22 only, shop a wide selection of patio furniture, including three-piece patio conversation sets. Not sure where to start? We found sets to fit a range of home styles, including mid-century modern designs and classic wicker, at huge discounts. For even more furniture options, head to Target's outdoor furniture deals.
