In the South, patios are extensions of our homes. The outdoor space is additional square footage that families can use for entertaining, gathering, and relaxing together. For many, outdoor patios can become somewhat seasonal living rooms, dining rooms, and play rooms, especially in the spring and summer months before temperatures are unbearable. Outdoor furniture can make a patio feel as stylish and comfortable as the interior of a home.

Whether your patio has room for a full-fledged couch, or a single rocking chair, spring is the perfect time to give this special spot a seasonal upgrade. Here are 10 outdoor pillows that will do just that, starting at just $8.

While shopping for pillows is a fun task, it's not one you necessarily have to do every few months. Investing in a well-made, transitional style allows you to use the same pillow for more than one season. This polyester pillow from the Southern Living Collection at Dillard's is a great example of a style that works for all seasons. Choose between two color ways, navy and coral gold, to match the rest of your home decor—or your football team's colors.
