We couldn’t love Yardbird any more if we tried! As you know by now – especially in our Trendy AF series – we recently purchased our first home (whoop whoop!) and, well, we went from a 490 square foot apartment to a 10 room house. Sure it sounds good, but we basically had zero furniture so we have to furnish the entire thing. Fun? Not really. The fun part for us is our backyard, deck, and patio. Since we WFH on the regular we want to make sure our outdoor space is zen, comfy, and not like everyone else’s. That’s where Yardbird comes in.
If you haven’t heard of them yet, Yardbird makes some of the most amazing outdoor furniture from intercepted ocean plastic and sustainability is the name of their game. We have mad respect for companies that are focusing on this and, besides just loving their furniture, we also really like supporting companies that focus on the environment as part of their overall mission and business plan.
If you’ve been in the market for some outdoor furniture – be it dining sets, conversation couch/set-ups, bistro sets – you name it, you know how finding good pieces can be crazy expensive. If you look at some popular brands like Pottery Barn and even most recently William Sonoma you can see complete sets going for as high as $7,000 – $8,000. Even options from more affordable retailers like Walmart, Target or even Home Depot will typically run you anywhere from $900 – $2,000 depending on the style you get. And with those, quite honestly, they don’t always last the longest. At least they never did for us in previous years.
With Yardbird, sure you’re going to find some expensive choices, but you can find some of their most popular picks priced anywhere between $1,700 – $3,300 on average. But, the good news is that it includes the whole set (chairs included). I mean, we had recently seen a table (just the table) on a competitors site priced at $2,995. Then each chair ran you $450. Too much math for us.
Some of the sets we’re most obsessed with you should check out include things like:
- Their Outdoor Sofas – Learn More Here
- Their Fire Pit Tables + Sets – Learn More Here
- Their Sectional Sets – Learn More Here
- Their Chaise Lounges – Learn More Here
They even have some really cool outdoor throw pillows that come in really trendy colors and patterns and, in comparison, most are super affordable. For us, we think it’s the best way to had some bright pops of color to your outdoor space. Either way, at the end of our review we’ve listed out some of our most favorite sections so you can quickly get to them and decide for yourself.
The Deal With Their Deals:
Our only gripe, but we totally get it, is that they really don’t have deals and sales like a lot of other brands do. Their official take on this is:
We do not offer any sales or discounts, as we are opposed to the industry practice of setting false retail prices to then offer false discounts, even though they are emotionally powerful.
We focus on keeping our prices as low as possible all year by working closely with our manufacturers and selling direct-to-consumer without a middleman. We pass any possible savings into the regular pricing of the furniture.”
And you know what? We totally respect that. Half the time other brands have sales we’re convinced they may just raise the original price to make it look like you’re getting a great deal. Hey, at least we appreciate the transparency coming directly from Yardbird – and like we said – if you’re in the market for outdoor furniture you know how crazy expensive some places can be!
The Deal With Promo Codes:
So we researched this one a bit too and while they do accept promo codes and discount coupons at checkout they do not give out promo code offers of any kind to any site whatsoever. And, to be clear, we don’t have any exclusive offers here either. We looked at a bunch of sites that claim to have them but, honestly, none of them worked. I mean, we didn’t really think that they’d offer 50% off (haha!). So, don’t waste your time looking for random codes online.
At the end of the day, we think your best bet is to just shop them directly on their site and even sign up for their newsletter. This way, you’ll also be in the loop on any new arrivals or promotions they may be offering. We did see that they did have a free shipping offer with minimum spend but, as always, just go directly to their site to see what’s up. Check them out here!
