Comfort Zones

Today’s garden furniture offers habitats you’ll be loath to leave

Outdoor furniture is having its settle-in-and-stay moment, with Paris-based Fermob producing a canopied hammock that is the very model of contemporary design made loungeworthy. A sofa from Roche Bobois—fittingly named “Cocoon”-—boasts an Italian acacia wood frame that calls to mind a modernist web, if the weaver had been Marcel Du-champ. From Galanter & Jones comes a cast-stone bench with a heating unit to take the chill off cool nights. The garden has never been more homey.
