1} VONDOM
Designer Karim Rashid’s Sloo chairs for Vondom are composed of polyethylene and come in 10 colors, among them black and white, orange, green, and pink. From $375. +34.962.398.486, www.vondom.com

2} SUMMIT FURNITURE
In profile, Summit’s Boomerang sofa is designed to recall the shape of a throwing club. Made from sustainable teak, the frame sits on metal legs and holds a weatherproof cushion. $8,000. 831.375.7811, www.summitfurniture.com

3} SUTHERLAND
The Boardwalk club chair and ottoman by the late designer John Hutton feature a teak frame that is available in four finishes. From $5,130 for the pair. 214.638.4161, www.sutherlandfurniture.com

4} JANUS ET CIE
Thanks to its low-profile design, the Fibonacci Vantana double chaise sits in a garden like a sculpture. It is made from Janus et Cie’s synthetic weave, which wraps around the powder-coated steel frame. $6,879. 800.245.2687, www.janusetcie.com

5} DEDON
Philippe Starck designed Dedon’s new Rayn daybed (to be released later this year) with foam-filled cushions of varied thicknesses to provide increased lumbar support. The armrests double as side tables. 310.388.4721, www.dedon.de

6} RESTORATION HARDWARE
Rustic enough for a country retreat but sleek enough for a modern home, the Aspen chaise boasts a base of solid French oak and can be covered in any of 68 fabrics. $1,695. 800.910.9836, www.restorationhardware.com

7} FENDI CASA
With its ample upholstery, the Gianicolo might be mistaken for an indoor sofa, but its outdoor fabric and wood frame (available in solid ash or solid pine) are meant to withstand the elements. $11,000. 305.438.1660, www.fendi.com

8} PHILIP NIMMO
The interior designer and ironwork artist’s first outdoor line includes the Opio sectional: a mix of chairs with iron frames hot-dipped in galvanized zinc. From $5,800. 323.653.1209, www.philipnimmoironworks.com
