More about teak chaise lounge

Teak Chaise Lounge Chair from Home Garden and Patio is a recliner with a difference that the users can fold up and move to any place with minimum fuss. Finished with high quality teak, the portable lounge chair comes with a well-placed handle and a telescoping headrest, offering trouble-free transportation and optimum comfort respectively to the users. While the natural finish gives a classic look to the lounger. You may own this wonderful sun lounger for $655.

The southern european culture of afternoon siestas led us to create this pair of chaises with extreme comfort and functional simplicity being the major factor of its design. The initial concept for the outdoor Siesta chaises derived from our interior Siesta daybed also designed for comfortable resting. Essentially the Siesta interior/exterior series will continue to concentrate on developing both interior and exterior lounging solutions. The chaises have optional steel with wheel or curved wood feet and slings made from luxurious textile mesh. Also available in aluminum frame with exact dimensions.

Furniture Fashion showed our loyal readers a beautiful teak chaise lounge from Diamond Teak that would surely add some class to you patio or outdoor living area. Well here is another fine patio furniture offering from the masters of wood work that has a very unusual concept. Diamond Teak makes several benches available in various curvatures, lengths, and back rest designs perfect for all weather environments or interior atriums. The zig zag of the individual slats supports the benches front and back weight load making a very stable place to enjoy your self. As with the Chaise lounge, each piece of wood is spaced and tapered to give a very finished look, leaving few straight lines. Bench lengths range from 69" for $2990 to 100" for $4630, and depths 29" to 36" depending on curvature, with all seat heights a standard 18".

From The Workforce Of The Bucharest Heavy Machinery Plant, With Love

I've been meaning to write about this for some time. Taschen's book of political souvenirs has been lying around on our office bookshelves for so long I can't recall who brought it in. It features photographs of hundreds of political gifts presented to the East German Communist Party leadership by visiting dignitaries from the fifties to the late eighties.

They are fabulous objects, combining political/military bombast with miniaturisation. Many of them take the format of elaborate retirement gifts (which some of them in fact are) or executive toys, but with the toys replaced by representations of rockets, heavy machinery or spaceships.

They are kitsch and full of bathos. Many of them serve an obvious function of declaring political obedience, or as examples of mutual back scratching or one-upmanship. They are baldly literal but put together with an eye for surreal juxtaposition.

My personal favourite is the "Desk Set" at the top, a gift from Lieutenant Colonel Kurkotkin to Erich Hoenecker on the occasion of his 60th birthday. I was hoping for something similar for mine.

The book is now sadly out of print. The objects are from the Deutsches Historiches Museum in Berlin, and the photographs are Sebastian Ahlers.

Incidentally this post is also a kind of parting gift to you, People of the Blogosphere (alright then, Person of the Blogosphere), as I am off on holiday for the next couple of weeks to a distant land with no broadband. So there will be a break in broadcasting. No twittering neither.

Amazing design of outdoor lounge chair

We can find amazing designs on the pool lounge now . think out of the box. Then you will discover a form that you never know. This is because Synthetic Rattan wicker material has been widely used and inspire them. See this bellow that some of designer done!!!

Check out the uber-funky AGK Mercury Lounge Chair has a spherically shaped frame that gives the chair and impression of floating in the air. Implemented in hand-shaped and welded powder-coated steel wire that is impervious to the elements, the frame is hand-wrapped in polypropel synthetic rattan, in a dark brown color.

Part of our contemporary garden furniture collection from Spanish company Punto, made from their exclusive synthetic rattan on an aluminium frame, the Double sun lounger is almost indestructible. Hand woven by artisans with years experience of weaving cane, the Double Sun lounger/Daybed is unusual but practical.The rattan weave is cool & smooth to the touch, dirt repellent, water and frost resistant, and completely environmentally friendly as it is toxin free, biodegradable and recyclable. This beautiful garden furniture is designed to last forever & require virtually no maintenance.

The Double sun lounger is available in dark, white, or natural fibre. The cushions are included, and are covered in weatherproof fabric, with a wide choice of colours & patterns.

Lounging two ways is always more fun than one, as demonstrated by the SunRebel lounger by Freeline. The sculptural piece is invertible to offer different seating positions, and is constructed of synthetic rattan over an aluminum frame. It comes in a clean stone color, as well as a rich chocolate brown. Custom colors are also available

The "Leaf" modern outdoor lounge chair from DEDON needs no real explanation, the benefits seem rather obvious. There is however two accoutrements, a curved side table and thick breathable cotton pad that make for a real quality lounging experience you should know about. This organic lounger is available in two sizes and was the recipient of the "Award for Outstanding Design" by the British Interior Design Association.
