Model and mom-of-three Ashley Graham recently traded her Brooklyn apartment for a house in the New Jersey suburbs, complete with a giant backyard. To decorate her new outdoor space, the Sports Illustrated cover star teamed up with interior designer Mikel Welch and pay-over-time service Affirm, and the results are gorgeous.

“The whole experience was so amazing,” Graham tells us, revealing that her biggest must-have backyard item for summer is “100 percent a big, comfy couch.”

While Ashley’s backyard makeover featured decor from Pottery Barn and West Elm, we’re happy to report that the most important item—the couch—came from Amazon Home.

“I mean, there’s five of us and normally my mom is around or my in-laws are around, or we've got brothers and sisters galore! So we needed a lot of space outside for sitting and just entertaining,” the model tells us.

The five-seater wood and wicker couch Ashley chose is definitely big enough to fit her family, in addition to being water-resistant and available in two different colors (beige and dark gray).

Made from acacia wood, this material is designed to withstand outdoor elements and not darken over time. Another bonus? Ashley tells us that the cushions are firm and comfortable.

And Ashley isn’t the only happy customer. “This is a beautiful patio sectional,” one reviewer writes. “Buying online without actually seeing it and feeling it, I was a little apprehensive about the quality....the minute I opened the boxes I realized what a high quality set it is. Solid frame, cushions are thick and firm, everything fits tight. Assembly was simple. And it's a perfect match to an existing teak framed dining set. I couldn't be more surprised and happier.”

Now where can we get our hands on that stunning backyard pool?
