The surprising thing about fancy rooftop bars and glamorous resort pool decks is that their special ambiance comes from elements you probably have already in your own outdoor space: a summer breeze, good company, and fresh air. (Though, yes, a bar tab you can charge back to the room also helps.) What makes these areas feel so ritzy is a simple consideration for design. For all the time spent futzing over our interiors, it’s easy to leave our outdoor spaces an afterthought.

This isn’t surprising. Outdoor furniture has always been a game of compromise. You can have stylish pieces, but they’re probably flimsy. You can prioritize sturdiness, but it’s probably not that comfortable. The Venn diagram of outdoor seating that’s well-cushioned, well-designed, and well-made used to be three separate circles, but Outer set out to change that. Their triple-threat furniture is as comfortable as your bed, as stylish as your living room sofa, and as durable as camping gear.

Investing in furniture that takes such a beating may seem counterintuitive. But, as with most things, when you choose the high-quality stuff, you’re setting yourself up for years of enjoyment. Outer’s pieces are a huge step up from those stackable chairs that leave strap marks on your thighs. Their cushions are made with memory foam that’s both luxurious and supportive, and they’re lined with high-performance fabric that’s stain-, fade-, and mold-resistant. Built-in covers extend easily to protect their sustainable construction through all kinds of weather, and five- and ten-year warranties on their cushions and new aluminum collection add extra security. And it’s just plain beautiful. With classic, elegant lines, Outer’s seating, tables, and rugs have a casually glamorous feel you can lounge in from sunbathing to stargazing.
