Splurge vs. Steal: Outdoor Chaise Lounges

Looking to soak up some sun?  These two chaise lounges can help, regardless of your budget.

The Chesapeake Single Chaise and Cushion from Pottery Barn is crafted from solid hardwood with weather-resistant hardware to survive summer showers. The lounge can adjust to four levels and offers drink holders for your summer mojito. Wheels on the back make the chair easy to move. A chaise with a solid-color cushion set rings in at $548; with a striped cushion, $568.

On the other hand, maybe you had to have that Michael Kors bikini and now you need to save a little on your outdoor furniture purchase. Check out the Smith & Hawken Marlton Chaise Lounge at Target. For $179, any lounge lizard can find just the right angle for optimal tanning on this wheelable chair that adjusts to five positions. Bring your toolset to the pool, assembly is required.
