Sponeck Modern Garden

Handcrafted in Switzerland, the graceful, curvy Sponeck Modern Garden Chaise is made from durable fiber cement – basically the standard stuff mixed with sand and cellulose. Also used to make external siding, the material is breathable and frost-proof, so the chair can be left outside year-round. It's also swank enough to bring indoors, once a chill hits the air.
