I rarely see outdoor furniture that makes my heart sing, but HAY’s Palissade’s Outdoor Set did.
A few months ago I ordered it it, unseen, nervous whether I would like the feel of it. I am happy to report the material is AMAZING! And, the entire set is super sturdy and visually pleasing. (For those of you who don’t like to sit on no-back-support-benches, you can also get chairs!)
May it last for a LONG time!

Rumple makes Puffy Blankets that roll up like a sleeping bag. I am especially intrigued by the super small size they offer: The NanoLoft Travel Blanket combines Rumple’s proprietary down-alternative insulation with the same technical materials found in premium sleeping bags and insulated jackets to keep you warm and cozy on the go. Who doesn’t want a blanket for everywhere? (Love that Lisa Congdon designed one of these blankets!)

These Ceramic Berry Bowl Colanders will make your cut fruit happy. Don’t we all want happy fruit?
In case you’re on the lookout for a hammock, look no further: Yellow Leaf Hammocks! I own two of this exact style and I leave them outside all summer. Through rain and all, they stay perfectly nice. I don’t even understand how that is possible. They are stylish AND comfortable.

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived?”
