Bardolino Lounge Chair

With credentials to show weather-worthiness, this lounge chair would be an excellent candidate for being an indoor/outdoor chair (as in, would look just fine as an indoor chair until the weather’s nice, then pull it outside).

The indoor/outdoor Bardolino Collection has lines that echo the forms of classic mid-century European furniture, but its materials are squarely in the new millennium…They’re made from a powder-coated aluminum frame that’s wrapped in WaProLace® – a polyethylene fiber that has been specially tested to maintain its color and resist corrosion from chlorine, salt water or other outdoor elements. Nontoxic and 100% recyclable, WaProLace is easy to maintain and can withstand temperatures from -94°f to 176°f. The Lounge Chair is distinguished by a deliberately low seat and slightly inclined back.

Relief Chair

Hmm, while I can think of a few heavy-hitters that I’d rather spend 4 G’s on, I can pretty much guarantee that none of them are eco-friendly. Plus, the pattern on this chair made from stacking felt pieces is superb and gives a very luxe look.

The Relief Chair remasters the art of sculpting, using digital fabrication and solid, renewable materials. Materials commonly associated with seating – upholstery, foam products and toxic finishes – are all supplanted with thick sheets of natural wool felt, adhered with non-toxic, water-based adhesives. The precision-cut contours of each piece of felt are aggregated into sinuous yet comfortable forms. The cascading edges create an integral pattern with both a visual and tactile effect.

manufacture: Mickus Projects, Brooklyn, NY
materials: Industrial wool felt, stainless steel, water-based adhesive
dimensions: 36.5″ tall x 32″ wide x 24″ deep

Zanotta Club Sofa and Armchair

So, once you get over the slight sticker shock, take a look at just how cool these outdoor/indoor pieces are…I love how simple the frame is, and how light the pieces appear.

Designed for indoor and outdoor use, the Club Sofa and Armchair are very versatile pieces of furniture. The steel internal structure has been painted so this set is suitable for outdoor use. Weave in PVC thread with nylon internal reinforcement, in the shade of brown, the Club Sofa and Armchair feature a unique design. Available with or without a seat cushion, these two items are perfect for lounging. -allmodern.com

Armchair (25.6″h x 33.07″w x 31.1″d): $2,350.00

Egg Chairs (Outdoor)

Whoa, talk about style. I was reminded* of how cool these chairs are when I posted the Ace Hotel in the travel section the other day. There was a picture on their site with one of these chairs on the patio and it definitely caught my eye.

*(editorial note: Let me start by saying I love these chairs. But, by any chance, have any of you been to Mexico and/or Costa Rica and seen very similar chairs on the porches of very humble homes? I know I have, because I’ve been tempted to stop the car and ask how much they cost down there and how much shipping would be…maybe next time I will.)

Hexagon Executive Lounge Chair

Hmm. It’s appealing in a strange (and big and low to the ground) sort of way. Plus, there’s a ‘make an offer’ option which means you can get it for less than the listed price…(very curious as to just how low they’d go). Also, if you’re feeling brave: an Egg Chair in Rattan. Yep, you read it right, rattan.

Comfort meets stability with a touch of class with the Hexagon Lounge Chair. Great for rest and relaxation yet adds style and a sense of power through modernity to any interior space.

Camping Series

Bring the outdoors inside with this series from Normann Copenhagen’s New Danish Modern furniture collection. The Camping series consists of chairs, table, stool and daybed in moulded beech wood and leather and man-oh-man does it look impressive. It oozes craftmanship; I’d love to see it in person.

Jesper K. Thomsen explains: “The archetypical traditional camping equipment has been my inspiration. The design has a recognition factor that brings the thoughts over to leisure and togetherness, that many think are typical of camping. I like the thought of bringing outdoor pursuits indoors or, perhaps more correctly, freedom in to the living room. At the same time, the icon, camping furniture, has been refined in my interpretation.”

Papa easychair

Quite possibly the perfect alternative to some of the more ubiquitous midcentury lounge chairs, the Papa Easy Chair (2001) by Jonas Lindvall is one of my favorite picks for a lounge chair, public or private.

Prince Charles Side Chair

Messing with a good thing can sometimes be disastrous, but other times it’s interesting and strange in a good way, which is the case of this interpretation of the Eames classic.

Modernica’s design studio has collaborated with artist Peter Shire to design the Prince Charles Chair based on the company’s Case Study Fiberglass shell chair and playfully named after the originator of the design, Charles Eames…The Prince Charles chair is an elegant and ironic juxtaposition – past and present. It is an innovative combination of two recognizable styles artfully embracing 300 years of furniture design into a single chair. This, along with the chair’s Queen Anne-like legs, which look like broken violin cut outs, prove opposites attract.

from $359.00-$469.00, depending on the seat selected (arm, shell or wire)

Rex Lounge Chair

A steal of a deal- for $124 you can own a comfortable folding armchair. Not bad.

Designed in 1952 by award-winning Slovenian designer Niko Kralj, the Rex appeals to the trained-and untrained-eye with its simple solid birch wood construction and fluid folding mechanism. Despite its storage capability, the design’s wide, comfortable seat and backrest, and sloping armrests invite frequent use in a lounge or office. When folded, the armchair measures less than six inches wide. Made in Russia.

Boden Chair

An homage to Wegner’s ch445 chair? Perhaps. It seems like a toned down version, with less curve to the back and a transitional wood base.

The sweeping curves of Boden start with an angled high-back and end with strong tapered base. Its unique shape is remarkably comfortable, ensuring that it will be the most popular seat in the house.
