Lizz by Piero Lissoni with Carlo Tamborini

Designed by Italian architect Piero Lissoni, the Lizz is a streamlined and urbane take on the outdoor dining chair, produced with state-of-the-art manufacturing. It's made as a single piece using glass-blowing technology, from a thermoplastic technopolymer that's weatherproof and resists scratches. Available in seven colors including dark blue, red, and white. Try a phalanx of these on either side of a wood farm table, which makes for a striking, mixed-metaphor outdoor dinner setting that'll also contrast boldly with the grass. [$315; yliving.com]
