Bookworm or no, these classic Penguin cover deckchairs make for smart outdoor seating.
The folding, portable chairs come in several classic-read prints and colors. I love them for the beach, but think they’d also make the perfect comfy seat for your deck or patio. Since they’re easy to fold up and stash, you could keep several tucked away and pull them out when company comes. So far they’re only available in the UK, but these just might be worth the international shipping.
