Tables and chairs released into the wild quickly go feral, developing a weathered wooden skin that camouflages them when they hunt stray throw pillows for dinner. Today's Groupon confines feral wood furniture inside a patio pen: for $50, you get $150 toward outdoor furniture at Home Escapes in Reston.
Home Escapes cossets comfortable backyards with patio furniture and umbrellas from brands such as Summer Classics, Winston, and Treasure Garden. Customers can browse showroom stock to decide which inanimate guests to invite to their backyard festivities. At parties, the four Aire chairs in a Summer Classics patio set ($2,092) will conga-line around their 40-inch slatted circular table as a 9-foot umbrella swivels its auto-tilt hips nearby ($330). Meanwhile, the two chairs of an Ashcroft bar set ($1,496) linger near their matching 36-inch table, scarfing down poolside snacks and commenting cattily on the chaise lounge's fading finish.
