Trend Watch: Low-Lying Patio Furniture

Five patio solutions for laying low in the summer heat

By Sara Cunningham

1 Ring of Fire
Warm your hands (and ward off mosquitoes) around this lightweight concrete fire pit handcrafted locally by Dekko Concrete. Natural gas or propane burning, it also comes with your choice of decorative rock. $2495, at ARD Outdoor.

2 Path Finder
The buffed teak handle on the Cocoon lantern makes it easy for pool party guests to locate flip-flops, while the polypropylene shade creates solar and rechargeable LED–powered ambience. $900, at Jardin de Ville.

3 Outliers
Patricia Urquiola referenced India’s quintessential carpets and roll cushions for her latest rug collection for Gan. Handmade in polypropylene, the boho outdoor range dries quickly after flash summer showers. Call for pricing, at Kiosk.

4 Island in the Sun
Designed to look like a small island rising out of the sea, the comfy Brioni lounge chair features a dark band that protects its UV-resistant upholstery from making contact with the ground. From $3700, at Suite 22 Interiors.

5 Shades of Summer
Paola Lenti’s dazzling flat or dome-shaped Bistro parasols now come with seating elements and aluminum side tables that can be configured to create the perfect patio oasis. Call for pricing, at Studio B.
