If your outdoor chairs are rotting or covered in rust, it's time to replace them. Here are a few outdoor seating options that are comfortable, durable, modern, low-maintenance, and that won't inspire embarrassment when your guests want to have a beer on the porch.
Room & Board Laguna Sofa
If you've got a screened-in porch or a patio with a roof overhead, you should invest in an outdoor sofa. The Laguna could easily be the base of an outdoor living room: a hangout spot where your kids can converge while you man the grill. It's framed with plywood and covered in fade- and water-resistant fabric, so it needs to be taken in only during the winter or severe storms. [$899; roomandboard.com]
