Aspen Lounge Chair

Turn to this burly lounger if you're looking to lend your patio some gravitas. At over 400 pounds, Danish designer Søren Rose's robust Aspen chair is hand-built from solid French oak timbers, rough-hewed and then planed and sanded. To keep things honest, exposed knots and other imperfections have been left alone, and as a result, each one is totally unique. [$1,995;]
