Sweet New Seats Perfect for Patios


Spend the rest of the summer sunbathing in one of these gorgeous patio chairs


Rio’s airy eucalyptus frame, gently curving resin slats and nautical rope handle at the back have us all charged up. Brazilian designer Carlos Motta’s pragmatic Finnish training meets Rio de Janeiro’s racy summers in this dynamic blue number. $430, at Avenue Road, 415 Eastern Ave

Keep it parked lakeside on this twist of the cottage staple. The Lollygagger’s poppy coral and angular slats are crafted out of recycled polyethylene, with just enough arm room for a cocktail. $440, at Hauser, 218 Merton St

Claim poolside status on Indecasa’s milk-white chaise. Its arched curve, teak arms and UV-resistant fabric will keep you cool and comfy in the middle of a heat wave. From $3030, at Design Within Reach, 435 King St W

patio chairs
Fall into Blow Up’s plush, lemon-yellow cushions and chill. The Sunbrella upholstery won’t fade, and the protective hood (stashed underneath the skinny black aluminum frame) will keep the chair safe from freakish summer storms. $1350, at Jardin de Ville, 44 Sherbourne St

patio chairs
Kartell’s indoor-outdoor Masters chair was elevated—literally—into this whimsical bar stool. Intersecting, wiry lines make up the ergonomic backrest, while a wide seat provides extra legroom. $565, at Plan b office, 380 King St E
