Ashwell takes a break on a vintage Adirondack-style chair that she bought at the Brimfield flea market in Massachusetts. Nearby an old wicker sofa without feet offers a quaint seating area. "It had two broken legs, so I just took the other two off," Ashwell says. "It's fine for a deck at the beach." A long weathered bench -- one of her favorite versatile pieces -- acts as a footstool.
