Weber Summit S-670 Gas Grill

Finally – finally – it’s grilling season. Although these days, calling it “grilling season” seems a bit limited. Case in point, the Weber Summit S-670 – in addition to 4 square feet of grill, it features a sear station, side burner and rotisserie system, making it more compact kitchen than stainless steel fire pit – not that we’re complaining. Now on sale for $3599, at InsideOut Patio, open 24/7 online and processing orders by phone.

Cuba Outdoor Lounge Chair

Despite echoing classic mid-century Danish design, Carl Hansen & Søn’s Cuba Lounge Chair, designed by Morten Gøttler, was only released in 1997. With smooth, clean design that neatly folds up, the chair is constructed with a solid teak frame, a synthetic flat rope weave and sturdy brass hardware, making it ideal for the outdoors and seasonal storage. $1205, at Design Within Reach, which is currently offering free shipping on all orders.

Mesa Teak Dining Table

Inspired by mid-century modern design, Mario Ruiz’s Mesa Teak dining table is a timely outdoor piece. Handcrafted from sustainably harvested teak, it naturally stands up to rain, frost and snow, all of which we’ve experienced this past month. Consider Ruiz’s Mesa Teak arm and side chairs to complete the set. Starts at $6595, at Restoration Hardware, now offering virtual design consultations.

Mah Jong’s Outdoor Modular Sofa

For the first time, Roche Bobois is offering an outdoor version of its best-seller, the slouchy, modular Mah Jong sofa. Upholstered in hand-stitched, quilted fabrics made for the outdoors, mix and match seat cushions and lounge chair units for a bold, cheerful combination. Call for pricing, at Roche Bobois, and request a virtual design consultation through video or 3D rendering.

Beolit 17

What’s May Two-Four without tunes? Bang & Olufsen’s Beolit 17 bluetooth speaker features an aluminium grill and leather handle, making it both durable and easy to transport around the house and outside. Ideal for open concept areas, patio spaces, and even balconies, the speaker delivers 360-degree sound with up to 24 hours of battery life and is offered in three shades, pink, stone grey and natural. $700, Beolit 17, at Bang & Olufsen, which has extended its 30 day free trial to 45 days for all online orders.
