At the beach or by the pool, this quintessential hot seat defines what summer is all about
Amid the grand canon of seating—armchairs, sofas, stools, etc.—a sling chair is practically synonymous with freedom. The very act of sitting in it denotes a mood of idle ease. (Have you ever tried barking orders from a sling chair? We're not entirely sure it can be done.) The options below start at a mere $25 and run the gamut from jaunty stripes to an iconic designer print. Scatter several on a patio for hits of color that instantly uplift your outdoor decor. The best part? They fold up flat at summer's end.
