The Bisou chair is another attractive contemporary piece of design with retro curves. For those looking for stylish outdoor furniture, its scratch resistant plastic means that if you get a model with solid aluminium legs it is also suitable for outside use. If white plastic chairs in your garden revive too many horrific memories, it comes in a vast range of bright colours including blue, yellow, red and orange.
The chair, shown here with the accompanying Bisou table, is designed by Roberto Foschia and manufactured by Softline, Italy. This design pedigree means it isn't a throwaway number at £170, with the outdoor suitable legs (rather than using the other options of chrome lacquer or aluminium lacquer) £20 extra. Hopefully at that price it will weather quite a few years of use.
