In the pandemic era, we all want our outdoor spaces to shine—and also work for our lifestyles. These pieces, which range from practical (a coffee table with storage inside) to a showstopper (a chandelier of hanging rock crystal), will help you make the most of your time al fresco.
Gilded Cage Chandelier by Fisher Weisman
This ethereal chandelier, handcrafted in Mexico, will bring serious bling to an outdoor entertaining space. Feather-shaped drops of papier mâché and rock crystal hang down from a steel cage, to stunning, glittering effect.

Lucia Dining Chair by RH
This comfortable outdoor dining chair was inspired by the tailored minimalism of 1970s postmodernism. In any setting, it offers a beachy vibe, thanks to breezy, handwoven wicker panels. The frame is solid teak.

Solis Outdoor Coffee Table by Model No.
This table is beautiful, practical—the top comes off, so pillows and a blanket can be stored inside—and environmentally sound. It’s made in Oakland, with cherry wood from a responsibly managed forest and plant-based resin, with non-toxic finishes.
Acapulco Tonal Chair by CB2
If you can’t make it to a Mexican resort, this lounge chair is the next best thing, with its cheerful, sun-colored cords. It’s equally sophisticated in shades of blue, selected by fashion designer Azeeza Khan, and in a black colorway.
Redo Stool by Atra Studio
This bar stool, a gorgeous combination of brass-plated steel and leather, was inspired by the simplicity of Japanese design. It’ll even do double duty, transitioning brilliantly from outdoors to indoors.
