Pros: Lighter than its wood counterparts, this colorfast molded version of a classic English garden bench can be hosed down and has a sloping seat for water runoff. Cons: Although not shiny like cheap resin furniture, polyethylene is still plastic. Giulietta Bench, $795, from www.conran.com, (866) 755-9079.
