Do you feel that in the air? It’s officially getting warmer, which means we’re storing away bulky sweaters and opening up the windows to enjoy some extra fresh air. After being tucked inside the past few months, we’re ready to get outdoors — which makes it the perfect time to transform even the smallest outdoor space into an oasis.

From cushion covers to sun-shielding umbrellas, these products will help transform any alfresco area into a more pleasant, comfortable place to lounge. The best part?
