8 Essential Objects for a Lazy Summer Day

From a canasta lounger to curl up in to a stool to sink into, each of these furnishings is designed for doing nothing—in style.

It’s summertime, and living easy is top-of-mind. While you’re dreaming up your ideal day, remember that furniture is an important part of setting the stage. Here, we detail pieces that prioritize function and comfort, and are imbued with pure imagination. Each promotes ultimate repose—at home or poolside—while transporting users to a whole new headspace.

Every object is from a brand on The List, the destination for all things Surface-approved. Want to join The List? Contact our team to find out how to apply.
