Lightweight furniture options?

Lightweight yet comfortable furniture that can be moved out of the way easily? Asking for my mom who runs a rental cabin but also hosts yoga classes form time to time.

My mom owns and runs a small rental cabin. Occasionally she teaches yoga classes and workshops, so she designed the cabin so it could be easily converted into a space that supports up to 15 yoga students or so in the living room area. It's a small, simple, Zen-like space, so she never had very much furniture in it so begin with.
When she originally invested in furniture for cabin, she bought furniture that could be easily pushed out of the way to make space for students when she does host yoga classes. Most of it is lightweight but not so comfortable furniture, like a small wicker couch and wicker chairs from Pier One (they have cushions and look nice, but they are not super comf) and another lightweight but sort-of comfy chair from Ikea. Over the years, enough people have complained that the one thing they dislike about the cabin is lack of comfortable furniture.
So, does anybody know of any lightweight, yet comfortable furniture options? She doesn't use the cabin for yoga as much these days, but it would still be awesome to have the option. She really would like a sleeper-sofa or couch that converts into something people could sleep on as well, but again, something light enough so one, maybe two people-- and by 2 people I mean not 2 huge mover-guy types-- but possibly 2 older women-- could move it out of the way and put back without a lot of discomfort.
