24 picks for patio chairs: Modern looks for lounging in style
Whether your tastes lean toward the clever and cool new folding chairs made of poplar or hickory by Culver City-based Industry of All Nations, above, or designer Karim Rashid's waves of metal mesh pictured at the bottom of this post, we've got you covered.
Our pre-summer rundown of the latest designs includes trendsetters such as Gervasoni, Zanotta and Kenneth Cobonpue, as well as mod-for-the-masses destinations such as CB2 and West Elm. We've even tossed in a few previews, including the sheet-metal Lami lounge chairs, right, from Markamoderna. The company made a splash at international design shows but isn't scheduled to launch Web sales for the U.S. market until late June.
