This summer I want to be able to lounge by the pool in comfort. I want to have my coffee and smokes beside me within easy reach. (I want a tan). I WANT this chair. I'm not sure how well teak outdoor furniture would work in our long winters, becuase I sure as hell do not have the room to store one more thing in my garage. Any outdoor furniture would have to be able to stand up to the rain and the snow - and the sun.
