Outdoor living never felt so right!
Do you dream of lounging lazily by the poolside this summer? Or, perhaps magnificent parties in your backyard star front and center in your dreams. Either way, many new outdoor furniture designs are available to fulfill your summer fantasies. Turn your patio into a cozy open-air space with these fabulous finds.
Made of 100 percent stainless steel, this hammock exemplifies unique beauty and sturdy construction. “The Tuuci hammock is the splurge hammock,” says Carrie Leopold, co-owner of Dodds & Eder Home in Oyster Bay (www.doddsandederhome.com). “There’s nothing else like it on the market.”
“With hammocks, you can go two different routes,” says Dottie Simons, Leopold’s partner. “Hatteras soft weave hammock is very popular in navy blue.” The thatch-like weaving is soft and cushiony, while also highly durable against the elements. Recline in absolute comfort. (www.doddsandederhome.com)

“The sectional is very popular right now,” says Carrie Leopold. “It is sleek and modern, but also very comfortable.” With its deep cushions and built-in tables, you’ll want to spend all of your free time outdoors.
“These fire pits are very modern and contemporary and work with a lot different grouping,” says Simons.
“They are probably the most simple to use fire pits,” adds Simons. They use bioethanol fuel, which is effortless to pour in. The flame is also easy to extinguish. There is no smoke or soot and unlike gel products of the past, this fuel is not combustible. (www.doddsandederhome.com)
