2012 has been a good year so far for outdoor design. A slew of modern products have been released, from seating to umbrellas to tables and planters, but summer is also about fun--and we're all about having fun here at USA, so here are five of our favorite Character Approved outdoor product discoveries. Check them out in the slide show below!
The pet float. Need I say more? Okay I'll say a little more... pets want to keep cool and have fun this summer, too! Make them feel like they're part of the family by including them in the fun, backyard activities such as swimming and lounging by the pool. Or, in this case, in the pool. [Image: Frontgate]
Offi's new Mod Lounger is a rocking chair/chaise hybrid that brings Offi's playful style and fun colors outdoors for the entire family. Made from #4 recyclable molded polyethylene, Mod Lounger is a modern, fun alternative to those cheap, stackable plastic patio chairs. [Image: Offi]
What's more fun than camping? Answer: nothing! Field Candy is a company that makes design-led, limited-edition tents. They're fun for kids and adults, too! From the beautiful to the humorous (like this jelly bean tent called "Sweet Dreams"), one of Field Candy's designs is sure to suit your mood. [Image: Field Candy]
