Do you live in New York City and want to turn your balcony into a cozy and comfortable hangout space?
Maybe you’re looking for furniture that can stand up to the elements but still looks and feels great. If you’re in New York, you probably have a limited space for your balcony furniture.
We can help! We’ve chosen a few pieces of poly furniture that work well on balconies with small spaces.
What is poly furniture? Poly lumber is a strong, durable plastic composite material made with recycled milk jugs and other consumer products. It is water resistant, won’t rot or crack, and has UV protection to ensure that its color remains bright and vibrant year after year.
Poly is well suited for environments like New York City. Check out some of the benefits:
- Leave it outside year round! With a tight space, you don’t want to have to worry about bringing your furniture inside when the weather gets bad. You can leave poly outside without having to worry about it rusting, rotting, or fading. It’s also heavy enough that it won’t blow off your balcony when hurricanes or strong winds come through.
- Easy to assemble - Our poly furniture comes partially assembled so you only have to do minimal work to get your new furniture assembled.
- Won’t fade - If you have an uncovered balcony, you might be worried about your furniture’s color fading in the sun. Our poly lumber has a special UV protectant that stops the Sun’s harmful rays in its tracks.
- Low maintenance - Poly furniture requires virtually no upkeep. No painting. No resealing. All you need to clean it is a damp towel and some dish soap.

Best Balcony Set for New York City Apartments
This Amish made outdoor patio set is a fantastic way to spend some time outside. This set makes it easy to take dinner outdoors or have a drink at the end of the week with a friend.
Be sure to measure your outdoor space. These chairs measure 26” by 18”, and the table is 27.5” by 27.5”, so your balcony may not be able to accommodate them if it’s too small. If you can fit them on your balcony, however, they make a comfortable and homey addition to your apartment.
We love the customizability of this set. We recommend customizing your piece with two colors - one for the frames and another for the back slats and tops. White works well as a base color and adds a clean, neutral color to the mix.
