I'm a home product tester — and I did a double-take when I saw these chic patio chairs on sale for $37 each

Outdoor furniture can be ridiculously expensive, but this 'sturdy and beautiful' rattan set won't break the bank.

Real talk: I shop for deals on home items all day, and this might be the best one I've seen all week. It's a pair of Emma + Oliver patio chairs so sleek, you'd think they were ripped right from a catalog. Only they're from Amazon, and on sale for a mere $74. No, not per chair — for the set! Not only are they attractive, but reviewers say they're sturdy to boot, so if your outdoor space could use some gussying-up, these patio chairs will do the trick.

I don't know who Emma and Oliver are, but I'd like to thank them for such aesthetically pleasing, reasonably priced chairs.

Why is it a good deal? 💰

If you've shopped for patio furniture, you're aware of how outrageously expensive it can be. These days, it's hard to find a single chair for the price of this pair. As far as our price trackers are concerned, this is about as low as these chairs have been since last fall, so it would be smart to snag 'em, stat.

Why do I need this? 🤔

These rattan chairs might look dainty, but they're made of durable steel and can support up to 352 pounds. The powder-coated frames are designed to handle inclement weather, though they're lightweight for easy movement and can be stacked to save space.

Their sleek, minimalist style will fit in with most outdoor aesthetics, or indoor, if you'd prefer to use them in a sunroom. Place them on the deck, near the pool or around a table and invite some friends over for an al fresco meal.

(Oh, and before you stress about having to dig out your screwdriver — these chairs come preassembled!)

What reviewers say 💬

Amazon customers praise the Emma + Oliver Rattan Chair Set for its strength, appearance and durability.

Pros 👍

"I love these chairs!" exclaimed one fan. "Beautiful right out of the box. They are sturdy enough for my husband to feel comfortable in and look very nice. They aren't huge, will be easy to stack and store in winter and are a great way to have extra seating on our back patio. We're considering buying a second pack of two, we like them so much."

"They stood up to a Florida summer of intense heat and regularly scheduled downpours," shared another shopper. "They got drenched in hard rains, but a couple [of] hours in the sun and they are dry as new."

They're not just for outside, either. "I bought four," said a repeat buyer. "I liked them so much, I bought two more ... to put in my guest bedrooms. They look equally well indoors or outdoors and the arms are a great aid feature for older people to get up from."

Cons 👎

Several buyers mentioned concerns with their compact size. "[The] only con is I wish they were larger," wrote a user, though they also described them as "sturdy and beautiful."

Others had notes like this final reviewer: "[The] bar at the front of the chair is [a] little higher than the seat, so it's pushing against the back of the legs when sitting." (Psst: Some recommended using a seat cushion to fix this — keep scrolling for a comfy option.)

These come in four neutral colors, though prices vary. For just a bit more, you can get 'em in this pretty two-tone style.

And to make your tush a little cozier, how 'bout some cushions?

Stuffed with a thick fiber fill, these seat pads offer a cushy spot for your bum and come in lots of colors and prints. 

"I love these cushions," raved a reviewer. "They're very comfortable, they've held up well all summer ... they are not showing any signs of wear, and my cushions get a lot of use."
