When it comes to summer lounging, it's a material world.
The elliptical spread of the Arena daybed by Roda ($17,000) is constructed out of gently yielding tubular-knit fabric with a just-so incline of a backrest—and it’s the perfect platform from which to survey the great outdoors. Hail, summer! rodaonline.com
Wrap yourself in the woven form of the Dragnet lounge chair by Kenneth Cobonpue (from $7,855). Inspired by fishing nets, the seat and ottoman feature bright-red fabric twisted and looped around a stainless steel frame, making them a worthy catch indeed. bloomfs.com
No two of these handcrafted teak-and-aluminum dining tables ($12,900) are the same. The tables, part of the Raw collection by Danish designer Henrik Pedersen for Gloster, feature live-edge, split-wood tops that are meant to be left to the elements, allowing the rich-brown teak to morph into silvery grey—changing as the seasons do. gloster.com
The Erica by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia ($2,248) is light and airy (aluminum frame and interlacing fibre) yet cushy (ergonomic padding) with some very vibrant hues to sink into. bebitalia.com
For Loll Design’s new swaying version of the classic Adirondack chair, the Lollygagger rocker ($910), the sturdy lounger gets reimagined and made from recycled plastic for modern aesthetics and sensibilities. And there’s an integrated bottle opener…of course. lolldesigns.com
Designer’s Pick, Ben Leavitt of PlaidFox Studio, Vancouver: “A well-designed exterior space is the marriage of form and function. Let the function be obvious and the form … anything but! This Cloud bench ($2,000) from Bend Goods is the only type of cloud I want to see on a sunny summer day. I love this sofa—it’s cheeky and fresh and fun to look at, even when the long days of summer have turned into the soggy days of September.” bendgoods.com.
