The Edmond Outdoor Chair ($899) from Thrive Home Furnishings is part of a stylish midcentury modern collection that relies on equal parts eco-friendly manufacturing and comfort. Made of an element-resisting stainless steel frame and Sunbrella fabric in cheery green, the chairs (like all the company’s furniture) are made in L.A. Thrive also offers a 365-day return policy and pays return shipping.
Keep your patio or rooftop glowing through the night with the Solvinden Solar-Powered Light Chain ($19.99) from Ikea. Sixteen multicolored LED bubble lights require 9-12 hours to charge in sunlight and will provide 12 hours of full light when fully charged. Only available in stores.
Flip Flops Reborn
When all those summer flip flops are stamped out by machines, there are a lot of rubber remnants left behind. Flip Flop Door Mats from Vivaterra ($29-$95) turn those remnants into multicolored, super-hardy doormats that are virtually indestructible.
