We pick out some of the most stylish furnishings and accoutrements to lounge away the summer

Deckchairs and daybed from Kettal’s Bitta Collection by Rodolfo Dordon

Faceted lanterns in glass and solid brass fit with any outdoor set-up. Versatile and handy, these charming lanterns add both illumination and ambience to any garden party.

Stylish and inviting daybeds from the Tosca Outdoor Collection by Monica Armani call for lazy downtime. Their alluring feminine touch, with rounded forms and extra-wide braiding, makes an eye-catching statement. The innovative braiding, made of foam encased in a seamless sheath of knitted textilene and polyolefine, ensures that these daybeds are weather-resistant and also surprisingly soft to the touch.

Give your al fresco dining experience a touch of the exotic with exquisite home pieces by Ralph Lauren, such as this slab end table crafted fromsolid teak wood with natural edges and head-turning tortoiseshell pattern dinnerware in porcelain with 24-carat gold trim.

The Halley "Outdoor" family designed by Rodolfo Dordoni follows the visually striking bold design of its eponymous indoor counterpart. Radiating the tastefully elegant structure and streamlined proportions of the original Halley armchair, the outdoor collection includes an armchair, ottoman, sofa, and reclinable daybed. Completely removable upholstery covers come in a wide selection of outdoor fabrics that look sensational when combined with the cord structures.

Get your fill of stylish accoutrements from the latest collection of objects from Hermès Maison: set of two beach bats crafted in beech wood with cork handles, skittles set in ash with bridle leather, Jeux d’Animaux beach towel in terry cloth, and mahogany boxes with bridle leather.

Designed by the Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza and perfected by Japanese craftsmen, this bamboo bench from the Karumi collection features a light silhouette and comfortable removable leather pads in taurillon H.

Porcelain Barbados salad plates and faux monstera leaf napkin rings are all you need to bring the essence of the tropics to your summer table.

Like a cosy nest, be one with nature as you sit back and relax in the Bitta swing club. Reminiscent of the braiding on ropes used to moor boats, the architect and designer Rodolfo Dordoni achieved his aim to create furniture that features dense braiding while still letting air through.

Bring the comforts of the indoors out into your garden with the Portofino Collection designed by the Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen. The Portofino folding chairs with armrests (available in natural or dyed in wengé) pair perfectly with the stone top Bistrot Table with umbrella.

Break the boundaries with bright green fibreglass folding chairs made of uniformly coloured polypropylene resin with UV additives to make them weather-resistant.

The intricate patterns and bright colours of the Del Sol melamine serving bowl are reminiscent of authentic Mexican hand-painted earthenware without the risk of breakage.

Inspired by the shape of maritime sails fluttering in the wind, the Isabella daybed with its graceful silhouette, was designed by Budji Layug.

Aside from adding a vibrant burst of bright colour, the most compact Essenza Mini treats you to a full coffee experience with a perfect cup of brew at the single touch of a button.
