Stylish Sofa

With the benefit of being modular, this sofa can be reconfigured to fit your patio and seating needs. Shown is the two-seater version, but with two additional pieces, you can easily fit up to four people. The aluminum base is covered with a 100% recyclable polyethylene fiber that is weather-resistant. The feather-filled cushions are not weatherproof, so keep them inside when not in use.

Or just use the cushion on the bed as an ideal seating area for entertaining. This daybed offers Sunbrella fade-, stain-, and mildew-resistant cushion options (sold separately).
