Lazy breakfasts by the pool. Barbecues in the park. Bottles of grocery store rosé bought last minute to drink as the sun goes down on the beach. The hallmarks of a typical summer holiday look different this year, so it’s all about finding small ways to uphold that escapist feel—and Zara Home’s newest collection is full of warm-weather–ready pieces to keep those rituals alive. 

The star of the show? A roster of woven pieces, ranging from bamboo to rainbow-hued rattan. The style is a summer classic for a reason, and we already have these four standouts in our shopping cart.

For Picnics in Your Backyard

Pack up your favorite treats and throw blanket and take your next meal to go. This bamboo vessel can surprisingly hold a lot, so you’ll only have to make one trip (despite your commute being significantly shorter than usual). 

For Socially Distanced Rooftop Brunch

If you’re feeling up to having a couple close friends over, throw a buffet-style fete with the help of these raffia servers. 

For Hastily Put-Together Desk Lunches

Make raiding your cheese drawer an elegant affair with this set of multicolored knives. Your midday break deserves more than just a salad—a simple charcuterie board (with some of that bread you likely made over the weekend) will do the trick.  

For Dressed-Up Dinners for One

Takeout from your go-to restaurant can still be special with the right setting. This woven rattan placemat makes anything look fancy… even if that’s eating at your coffee table while Netflix plays in the background. Everyone has their own definition of a getaway.
