Outdoor furniture gets a bad rap. For some, the phrase conjures metal-frame glass tables, where water pools in crevices and mold grows with abandon. For others, it’s monobloc for miles, and still others pale at the thought of (over)wrought iron.

You can avoid that drab vision of terrace life with these eight design-forward options, from sleek loungers to downright-adorable LED lanterns and cool planters.

Lounge chair, West Elm, $549
The webbed lawn chair just got a major upgrade. An oversized seat, colorblock pattern, and handwoven wicker give it a modern look, too.
Follow Me Portable LED, 2 Modern, $264
Use one of these portable LED lamps, designed by Marset, to set the scene, or multiples to light a path.
Aussie charcoal grill, Lowes, $49
In a vibrant blue, this portable charcoal grill starts the party wherever you are.
Croquet set, L.L. Bean, $229
Striped mallets, nine wickets, and bright plastic balls make for a compelling and stylish match.
Ceramic planters, Lowes, $34.98
This red, fire-glazed finish will add life to lush greenery. Use indoors or out.
Lollygagger Chaise by Loll Design, DWR, $962
This not-so-basic basic, by Loll Designs, has generous proportions and an optional padded cover for extra comfort. And it’s made in the U.S. with socially-responsible manufacturing practices and environmentally friendly materials, a.k.a. 100 percent recycled plastic sheet material.
Terra-cotta lantern, Fredericks and Mae, $120
This handmade terra-cotta lantern will add earthy style to your patio, garden, or mantle.
Ver 1.0, PAD, $194
Liven up your patio with these mod, colorful planters by Eli Alexander. The Ver 1.0 is available in seven summery colors and in full and half sizes.
