The official start of spring means shoving all things related to cold weather like boots, scarves, and flannel sheets into the back of your closet for a solid seven months and ~springing~ into the new season ASAP.

One of the best parts about this time of year is being able to enjoy your patio (or deck, or balcony, or porch), whether you’re out there plugging away at e-mails or kicking back with friends on the weekends. Even if your outdoor space is small, it's easy to make it ultra functional with space-saving, multipurpose pieces that can be stacked, folded up, or even brought inside to double as living room furniture.

Ahead, 10 pieces of small space-friendly patio furniture that will have you wanting to spend more time outside than ever.
