As summer reaches its sweltering height, there’s no hiding where you stand: sun worshipper or shade seeker? For members of the latter camp, here are five fun ways to beat the heat in style. (All are best enjoyed with a mojito in hand.)
1. Sit under a fanciful umbrella. In the absence of a huge, leafy tree, Droog‘s Shadylace parasol will drape you in delicious dappled shade.

4. Commission a breezy hideaway by treehouse artiste Roderick Romero. Or, just check out his Web site and imagine yourself in one.

5. Dangle from a sturdy bough in Dedon’s Nestrest pod.
