ventura nights



Make your porch, deck, or patio a true summertime lounge with this extra-wide lounger by Gloster. The Ventura Deep Seating Chaise beckons with the silken teak finish of its frame and its comfortable (and colorful!) all-weather cushions or sling. Available at Fortunoff in White Plains $3,000


sit tight



The Stinson’s smooth square slats of sustainably harvested Indonesian teak, fashioned by hand, acquire a silvery gray patina over time. Cushions (sold separately) are poly-filled and covered with zippered Sunbrella covers that are resistant to fading, staining, and mildew. Available at Restoration Hardware in White Plains $1,225


lean and green



No doubt Al Gore would be partial to this minimalist chaise, part of the Leaf Collection by Arper: all of its components are recyclable and produced with non-toxic materials. Arper’s design interpretation of nature has a modern bent and strong architectural form, earning it a place of honor in the contemporary home. Available in green-, white-, or mocha-painted coated steel, to trade only, at SUITE New York in New York City  $2,230


hot seat



The Savannah Sun Lounger from Barlow Tyrie represents two firsts for the company: the chaise is part of modern furniture designer Vladimir Kagan’s premiere outdoor collection, and the line is crafted in hand-woven resin fiber, a new material for the company, which has an 87-year history of producing outdoor furnishings from plantation-grown teak. Available at Pound Ridge Nurseries in Pound Ridge and in Scarsdale  $1,728


stack the deck



In honor of his 55th birthday, Mark Singer, president of GIATI Designs, designed the company’s Fifty Five chaise, which combines the natural beauty of teak with the contemporary lines and durability of stainless steel. Its nautical styling makes it an ideal choice for the pool or family yacht. And, as an added bonus, the chaise stacks easily. Matching chairs and table are also available. Available to the trade at Walters Wicker in New York City $7,825


chair of the board



Remember those summers upstate? The Adirondack chaise by Groovystuff will make you feel as if you’re sitting in scenic Adirondack National Park, where the designers got their inspiration for its design. The pitch in the back of the chair and the front leg supports of each chair are formed from salvaged farm plows. Available at the Patio Shoppe in Wilton, Connecticut, and United House Wrecking in Stamford, Connecticut $713


all-weather wicker



Talk about smart design: the Chorus Relaxer marries modern stainless steel with a traditional-style weave. Svelte in its form, this Gloster chaise has a softly curved tubular frame with seats. Available at Seasons Too in Larchmont $2,000


cool by the pool



Classic maritime joinery and generous proportions characterize designer John Hutton’s Poolside Collection, which features adjustable back positions, a solid teak frame, and concealed wheels. Available to trade only through the David Sutherland Showroom in New York City  price upon request


retreat to the seat



Noted for its generous proportions, the Randi Resin Weave Chaise Lounge by Walters Wicker has an aluminum frame covered with woven resin and comes with a plush seat and back cushions in a wide variety of fabric choices (including the customers’ own material). An indoor version of the Randi can be constructed on a rattan pole frame and covered with woven wicker for, perhaps, the sunroom. Available to the trade at Walters Wicker in New York City $3,200
