Do away with the usual dreary wicker conservatory furniture in favour of this fabulously retro Cordage Settee from Anthropologie.
Watch any TV drama of the late '60s or 1970s and some hipster's flat will almost certainly have one of these in the corner. Unfortunately, wicker hasn't exactly has a good time of it since, although you can see this pair of 1970s wicker Peacock chairs looking good in the right place.
Very distinctive with their high back, they'll probably look good in a 70s-styled flat or some sort of conservatory or summer house. Note that there is some minor wear (see the site listing for full detail and imaging), but nothing major and nothing that takes too much away from the design.
If you fancy them, the two chairs are ours for £30.

Another summer-themed find, this time the 1950s-style Round Back chair at Graham and Green.
New in at the online retailer, it offers up that distinctive 1950s shape and wire construction, not to mention hard-wearing construction, the latter making it ideal for using in the garden, even if there's a chance of a shower. Although it's probably better suited in a summer room or conservatory, where it should add an affordable retro twist.
£49 will secure you one, cushions are extra.
