Best Outdoor Planter

we're loving the gorgeous texture€”and affordability€”of Ikea's new Drömsk plant pots (from $2). Designer Henrik Preutz used a reactive glazing technique to achieve the dreamy indigo colour on these stoneware planters.

Best Outdoor Table

Loll's new Fresh Air round table ($1,305) is made of durable high-density polyethylene that comes from recycled milk jugs€”the containers are white-ish, which makes them a great blank canvas for Loll's vibrant colours.

Best Outdoor Furniture System

This outdoor dining lifesaver is called Amai, which is a Flemish expression for €œwow.€ The wow-worthy new furniture system from Extremis (from $5,180) consists of an adjustable tabletop between two A-frame supports, and a retractable canopy for extra-sunny days.

Best Lanterns

there'senough light for everyone when the Rope lantern set ($249) comes to party. The geometric cut-outs in this trio are designed to look pretty with or without candlelight shining through, so they€™re great decor day or night.

Best Outdoor Chair

Look familiar? Ligne Roset's Lapel outdoor chair ($1,201) was inspired by the collar of a coat or shirt. There haven€™t been too many opportunities to dress up lately€”this woven armchair definitely wore it best.

Botanical Trivets by Graf Lantz, from $14

These botanical trivets not only protect the tabletop, they also provide a beautiful pop of colour and shape. The super-adorable aster, plumeria, banana leaf and monstera leaf designs are made with merino wool felt and Oeko-Tex certified dyes, and they€™re totally biodegradable (not that you€™d ever want to throw them away). €”Alyssa Hirose, assistant editor
