Need some solo time with your favorite beach read? A hammock is ideal for those lazy summer days when your hardest decision

instead of rope.
Want to have a backyard bash every weekend? An outdoor sectional with weather-resistant cushions accommodates a crowd. When entertaining, remember that furniture arrangements influence how your guests interact. A group of cushioned chairs and a low table will encourage guests to linger over drinks and conversation, while limiting seating options may cue them to mingle.
