Sure, architect Wiel Arets’s versatile "Jellyfish" chair and ottoman will add instant style to your yard or poolside patio, what with their clean lines and bold color and creative use of a fancy-sounding material that basically amounts to, well, super-rubber. But this duo isn’t just chic — it’s so super-strong (it’ll hold up to 350 pounds) and crazy-comfortable that you just might find yourself dragging it from the backyard into the bedroom long before summer even winds down.

$478 for the chair and ottoman set — also available in white, light gray and green — at Design Within Reach, 1710 Walnut Street, 215-735-3195; dwr.com.
