wicker swing you'll want to use basically every day in the summer to enjoy the beautiful weather while reading a book. I can already feel you starting to relax.
three-piece rocker set I'm pretty sure I saw in an episode of Veronica Mars the other day – if that show's coming back. it def means these are still in style.
Promising review: "These chairs remind me of the ones my parents had when I was growing up. They are solid and good quality for the price. They are not the heavyweight chairs from the 1960's, which makes them easier to move. I put them together in about one hour. Pleased with them and will likely purchase additional from this line as I continue to decorate my outdoor living space." — Linda
wicker table with a removable lid so you can store all the random things you don't want sitting out when you're not outside using them.

chiminea to keep you warm when the temp cools down but you're not ready to go inside just yet.
Promising review: "I'm really enjoying my chiminea! It actually came a day early, was easy to put together, and I have used it every day since. It is not EXTREMELY heavy duty, but a small fire is plenty to warm it and you too. I love sitting in front of a fire, and this chiminea is just the right size for my wife and me." — Jarrett
set of two all-weather wicker chairs so you don't have to worry about them when it suddenly starts to downpour at 3 p.m. (because that's what it does in the summer for some reason).

lounge chair – you might want to be careful with it, because it *could* cause you to never want to leave your backyard again (not that that's a bad thing!).
