This is not your 1970s bean bag. The Fatboy Original Outdoor comes in way cooler colors, is much more comfortable as a real seat and its jacket is moisture repellent Sunbrella™ fabric.

You know it’s the best time of year to lounge and swing from side to side. The colorful nylon on the Fatboy Headdemock Hammock is easy to wipe down, and there’s no need to find two perfectly placed trees — it comes with a tubular base.

The Fatboy Buggle-Up Lounge Bag is a very versatile piece. You can prop it up to sit up straight, punch it around for a lounge or lay it flat as a relaxing mattress at naptime. The outdoor version has straps that make it easier to lug around and prop up. After you try a Buggle-Up, you’ll never want to sit on wrought iron outdoor furniture again.

Once you start planning out your colorful new outdoor color scheme with Fatboy, you’ll be scooping up the deal before you know it. So get shopping; you only have until June 15, 2015.

If you don’t know Kähler, you’re going to want to get to know them. The iconic Danish ceramics company has been making museum-worthy pieces since 1839. Don’t let the pedigree scare you though; the Kähler pieces you’ll treasure forever are still handmade by artisans yet are reasonably priced.

Hand-painted stripes mark the classic Omaggio line by Kähler. A variety of shapes and sizes in a range of colors, the vase collection is made for all sorts of leaves, branches and blooms.

Omaggio will dress your table with style as well. A favorite is the crisp contrast of black and white with lovely wooden details like the butter dish’s top.

As an interesting side note, Kähler more recently expanded from making serveware to serving regional Danish specialties in their restaurants in Denmark.

Before you get to know them a little better through photos, here’s a bit of their design philosophy:

“We like to think of ourselves as part of a tradition that’s truly Scandinavian. On the other hand we’re inspired by everything from early American shaker style to Bauhaus. We believe that less really is more.”

Their Nozib Sun Lounger embodies these principles to a T. It’s comprised of 88 layer-glued teak slats, stripped down to its most The neck cushion is made from water-resistant artificial leather and can be height adjusted or removed.

While we love teak, but we’re also happy that Skargaarden has some whimsical fun with metal in their Reso Collection. These pieces throw some great curves and color into the mix.

They design their pieces with timelessness in mind. If you’re ever looking for a housewarming, wedding, holiday or birthday gift for a modernist, you don’t have to look any further than Namba.

Of course, feel no shame in treating yourself — you’ll enjoy your Nambé forever and pass it along as an heirloom. Here’s just a small sampling to whet your appetite.

Nambé Blend Bar Board with Knife. Acacia wood and stainless steel are a gorgeous combination, and the curved niche for the cutting knife is such a clever touch. Keep this on the bar to slice up your limes at G&T time.

Nambé Curvo Colander. We had no idea a colander could be so sexy before we saw this one. You won’t want to stash it away in a cabinet when it’s not in use, but rather will wind up showing it off on display somewhere.

Nambé Harmony 3 Piece Salad Set. The gorgeous curves and elegant simplicity of this bowl and tongs make it a set that will never go out of style.

Nambé Globe Candlestick Pair. There isn’t anything more romantic than candlelight, and the sinuous shape of these two candlesticks. While they appear as light as air they are sturdy and strong.
