SIT OUTSIDE: OUTDOOR CHAIRS WORTH A LOOK

by Marisa Marcantonio


A new crop of outdoor furniture that looks meant for the living room has recently debuted from Made Goods. With the look and feel of chairs that reside inside, the pieces are made to withstand the elements and look sharp while doing it. Here are some new editions in fresh light metallics and white that will perk up the garden.

A modern adaptation of the Peacock Fan Chair, The Aurora from Made Goods is made of synthetic rattan and teak to withstand the elements. A large circular back adds dramatic appeal poolside or next to a flower bed.

A French Bistro Chair gets a redo in all white with the Fitzroy.  This is the sort of chair that makes al fresco entertaining even more appealing, just wipe it's faux rattan surface down after a rainstorm.

This is a great looking chair. The Kismet design has stood the test of time, and this metal version with a circular mesh back has a lightness to it. The Hadley is done in a silver or gold finish for a low-key metallic moment.

Classics are classics for a reason. This design, inspired by a French Patio Chair, has an x-back and x-base, simple touches that are sophisticated and clean. The Kimberly Chair can mingle with a table of a different style and still hold its own.
