A backyard, like reality, is what we make of it: either a wondrous realm of childlike make-believe or a nightmarish wasteland dotted with the limbs of lawnmower-mangled action figures. Make your home’s outback your own with today’s deal: For $65, you get $150 worth of eco-conscious patio furniture, solar lighting, and other outdoor accessories at Unique Arts.
Unique Arts head product designer Ati Goknur and his staff handcraft a diverse ecosystem of outdoor accouterments using carefully chosen processes and materials, such as Forest Stewardship Council-certified wood. Ati also personally visits Unique Arts’ overseas partners before deeming their products eco-friendly and genie-absent enough to sell. Olympia solar lights illuminate walkways and remote property areas without enlarging carbon footprints ($49, six per set). The plug-less bulbs recharge automatically during the day and blink on when the sun slips into the horizon’s fanny pack at night. Enliven summer barbecues with wafts of charcoal from a stainless-steel screened fire pit ($99). The avian flutterings around a tall birdbath ($99) give patio populations something to look at as they lounge on a honey-brown Birmingham bench constructed from FSC-certified eucalyptus and do the New York Times crossword tattoos on their arms.
