Suzanne Rheinstein and Chanae Richards on the hottest outdoor sofas

Designers Suzanne Rheinstein and Chanae Richards take on the season’s hottest outdoor sofas.


1. 561 Trampoline by Cassina

CHANAE RICHARDS: The shape is really interestin­g. I’d use it on a deck in the Berkshires.

SUZANNE RHEINSTEIN: Ideally, I’d have two of these facing each other. They’re fun and unusual. 79.5• w. X 78.5• d. X 28• h.; $16,430. cassina.com

2. Oasi by Paola Lenti

SR: A great sofa for lolling and lounging.

3. Ottoman by Ligne Roset

CR: I’m ready to curl up and take a nap on this, but the seat height could be challengin­g for older clients.

SR: It’s incredibly casual. Perfect for either side of a fireplace on a terrace. 65• w. X 37• d. X 27• h.; from $4,790. ligneroset.com

4. Roma by Derek Castiglion­i

SR: It’s beautifull­y detailed, ideal for the Amalfi Coast with an Aperol spritz in hand. CR: Look at that frame! This was made for a screened-in porch in Charleston. 90.5• w. X 39• d. X 31• h.; price upon request. derekcasti­glioni.com

5. Piatro Mosaic Bench by Kelly Behun

CR: This belongs in a foyer with high ceilings. The mosaic inlay is so stunning.

6. Caribe 2-Seater Bank by Ames

SR: It’s cheerful and practical for warm, rainy climates like the tropics.

7. Locus Solus Loveseat by Exteta

8. Rossi Sofa by CB2

SR: It’s an updated classic, striking without being too look at me.
