This table is beautiful, practical—the top comes off, so pillows and a blanket can be stored inside—and environmentally sound. It’s made in Oakland, with cherry wood from a responsibly managed forest and plant-based resin, with non-toxic finishes.

If you can’t make it to a Mexican resort, this lounge chair is the next best thing, with its cheerful, sun-colored cords. It’s equally sophisticated in shades of blue, selected by fashion designer Azeeza Khan, and in a black colorway.
