Now that these three out­door de­sign mir­a­cles ex­ist, all you need is a fruity cock­tail to com­plete the pic­ture.

Pull up a chair… a daybed, even. Mother Na­ture is feel­ing sunny, and we owe it to her to en­joy the rays. This sum­mer, a new cal­iber of out­door fur­ni­ture awaits, from sus­tain­able to swivel­ing.

SWEET DREAMS

Why wouldn’t you want to sleep in the sun? That’s the ques­tion the de­sign­ers at Janus et Cie asked them­selves. “A lot of folks first saw daybeds in lux­ury ho­tels,” says man­ager Ser­ena Zahler. “Now they want them in their back­yard!” The Duo Round Daybed is avail­able in talc and graphite, and swivels 360 de­grees. Full re­tail price (as shown) $8,598. Janus et Cie, Boston De­sign Cen­ter, 1 De­sign Cen­ter Pl., 617-449-5514; boston­de­sign.com

SIM­PLY SUS­TAIN­ABLE!

Fea­tur­ing teak­like Brazil­ian eu­ca­lyp­tus trans­formed into sturdy patio ta­bles and lounge chairs, Out­door In­te­ri­ors’ col­lec­tion is “en­tirely sus­tain­able,” says Jay O’Rourke of New Eng­land Nurs­eries. The ta­bles fea­ture built-in lazy Su­sans, while the steamer chair of­fers a re­tractable ot­toman. Pass the shrimp cock­tail! Prices avail­able upon re­quest. New Eng­land Nurs­eries, 216 Con­cord Road, Bed­ford, 781-2752525; neweng­land­nurs­eries.com

DREAM WEAVER

Rocker or winged? Spice or At­lantic? Ex­cit­ing shape and color de­ci­sions abound with the De­don out­door chairs col­lec­tion at Show­room. “They are su­per com­fort­able, and pretty much in­de­struc­tible,” says owner Doug Gates. “We have a short and volatile sum­mer here; our clients in­vest in sum­mer hard.” Pric­ing starts at $3,975. Show­room, 240 Stuart St., 617-4824805; show­room­boston.com
