Kalvö Director's Chair

A sleek slice of Bauhaus-meets-Hollywood for the back yard – and at a great price. Lightweight and sturdy, this rustproof version of the movie-set staple folds up, so you can stow it in a shed or the garage when not in use. Park one in a far corner of the lawn to read the paper in peace, or group several around the fire pit. It's made of aluminum with a heavyweight polyester seat that's extra durable, can handle the elements, and wipes clean. If you own jodhpurs and an ascot, by all means grab a megaphone and start barking orders at your friends and family. [$34.99; ikea.com/us]
