Great outdoor furniture for kicking back at the cabin.

1. It's Nap Time Somewhere
Lazy cabin afternoon? This sturdy hammock is big enough for a nap for two, and the comfy built-in cushion will have you drifting off to dreamland in no time.

2. Perfect Porch
The view’s always better from a porch swing. This one’s made the old-fashioned way, with mortise-and-tenon joinery of lodgepole pine logs that were culled and skip-peeled by hand.

3. Every Seat is Unique
Handcrafted of teak planks recycled from retired Balinese fishing boats, each of these chairs is a work of art. The company’s purchase of materials supports Balinese fishermen and their families.

4. Pop Goes the Table
This bench has a table for two that pops up for impromptu picnics, then recesses seamlessly back into the seat. Position it under a shade tree or in the cabin garden, if you have one.

5. Set It & Forget It
These marine-grade polymer Adirondack chairs look like wood, but they are way more rugged. They won’t fade, warp or rust, and they’re hefty enough that a strong wind won’t blow them off the dock.

6. A Little Birdie Told Me...
This delightful bistro set provides the perfect spot to sip morning coffee. It looks like it was crafted from tree branches – little birdies included.
