H&D editors highlight this year's picks in landscaping products
SITTING PRETTY

The Vibrant Colors series of Adirondack chairs and side tables comes in four eye-catching shades: Sunset Red, Aruba, Lime and Pacific Blue. The collection is resistant to water, staining, corrosion and UV rays. trexfurniture.com

SOLAR POWER
Blade, a portable solar-powered lantern by Les Jardins, combines sleek style with energy efficiency. The clean-lined teak-and-stainless-steel lantern produces up to 200 hours of LED light per charge. Available in a range of sizes, it features a motion sensor and dimming capability. lesjardins.solar

MODERN SPIN
In 1948, architect Walter Lamb created Bronze for Brown Jordan, a seating line inspired by the sea and made with salvaged rope, brass and copper tubing. Today, Ann Marie Vering puts a modern spin on this classic collection with Oscar, crafted of die-cut aluminum and Italian rope and featuring Sunbrella upholstery. brownjordan.com

AL FRESCO
Patricia Urquiola dubbed her recent collection for Kettal “Vimini,” which means wicker in Italian. The outdoor line, combining basket-style wicker seating with a wooden frame, includes sofas and dining chairs.
