From a day at the beach to a long weekend away in the woods or a state park, there’s one thing that’s never a given when you’re out in nature: a nice place to sit and to set the gear you bring along with you. While for some a basic log will do, being outdoors is much more convenient when you have comfortable seating and tables available. And outdoor seating has come a long way since folding chairs. While they still fold, it’s not simply a matter of folding them in half anymore, but folding them into a long tube, which makes it easier to store and stack them. Thanks to this construction, they’re stronger and also more comfortable. They can be perfectly plush, but also come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from rockers to loveseats to recliners. And tables too are much easier to pack around. Tables fold down flat and some models even fold in half for more space savings. Plus, many include built-in or attachable pockets that are ideal for holding a drink or things like crayons if you’re using the table for outdoor crafts. And extra shelving on tables makes them ideal for grilling and outdoor cooking.
