Excitingly, it's only about two or three weeks until we get our brand spanking new bi-fold doors installed in the kitchen. It will totally change the way we live. The entire corner of the room will now be opened up onto a (yet to be built) deck. I cannot wait! The weather is warming up and when the sun is shining, the only place I want to be is outdoors. I am dreaming of being able to lounge around outside on the deck, reading design mags and sipping on a cool glass of my favourite sav blanc.
Naturally, my thoughts are turning to exactly what I will be reclining in. Something cool, something retro, something comfy.
The Acapulco Chair is right up there. But at $484 a pop (and I'll be needing two), I'm not sure it's still sitting at the top of my practicality list.
I do adore the classic Butterfly chair. Similar to the Acapulco, at $545 each, I'm sucking in a bit of air through my teeth. Don't think the budget will stretch that much when we still have to pay for the doors, the deck and blinds for all the windows.... blah. And I think you'd take your life in your hands going for a cheap-rip-off version of this one.
How about the Hoop chair? Love it, but maybe not so comfy for lounging?
OK. This is a cracker. The Slip-In sun lounger by Lettini. Cheap ($179!). Cheerful. Great lines. Could be the go until I can afford to get ritzy.
This is Jamie Durie's version of the Adirondeck by Patio for Big W. I like these, but maybe at a coastal or country house. $198 = good price.

Love the shape and texture of the Hulto by IKEA. It's made of rattan, but not technically for the outdoors. Good price at $129 each, but they'd wear pretty quickly during our harsh summer.
