This limited edition ping-pong table from James Perse is as understated and sophisticated as the brand’s sportswear. The teak design comes with a removable leather-bound net and an optional teak top that converts the gaming surface into a dining table. A felt-lined drawer holds four handmade paddles and James Perse–brand ping-pong balls. From $14,500. James Perse, 866.466.0668, www.jamesperse.com

These glasses from Mepra are as aesthetically refined as crystal stemware, but their construction—made from seamless polycarbonate—makes them ideal for poolside entertaining. Available in five sizes and four colors. From $16. Available at Table Art, 323.653.8278, www.tableartonline.com

Gray Malin, the fine-art photographer known for his aerial shots of idyllic beaches, has partnered with Orlebar Brown to put three of his photographs from Kauai, Rio, and the Caribbean on the brand’s designer swim trunks. $315 each. Available at Forty Five Ten in Dallas, 214.559.4510, www.fortyfiveten.com, and Maxfield in Los Angeles, 310.274.8800, www.maxfieldla.com

The outdoor umbrellas in Santa Barbara Designs’ Striking Stripes collection feature teak or maple posts and solid or striped canopy covers with matching, striped interior linings. Square, rectangle, or octagon shapes are available. From $3,880. Santa Barbara Designs, 800.919.9464, www.sbumbrella.com

The Los Angeles–based handbag designer Clare Vivier has taken Shutters on the Beach’s signature yellow-and-white stripes—in celebration of the Santa Monica, Calif., hotel’s 20th anniversary this summer—and created a canvas tote perfect for the season. It includes a detachable mini fold-over leather clutch in royal blue. $220. Shutters Beach Style, 888.334.9110, www.shuttersbeachstyle.com

This extra-large floating pool chaise is 73 inches long and adjusts from a fully flat position to the angle of an upright chair. The raft, made from rustproof steel covered in layers of closed-cell foam, is available in five colors. $359. Frontgate, 888.263.9850, www.frontgate.com

As artful as paintings, Hermès beach towels add flourishes of color to summer’s festivities, from pool parties to picnics in the park. From $550. Hermès, 800.441.4488, usa.hermes.com
