Rope chairs are staples in our summer entertaining arsenal. Lightweight and comfortable, they're easy to move around, and they allow in a breeze.  Here are five favorites for use indoors and out. Above: The soft cotton cords of the Acapulco-inspired  Ellipse Chair  are hand dyed resulting in subtle tonal variations; $319 from Roost. Above: Thanks to its teak and wicker-rope construction, the  Palmer Rope Armchair withstands the elements; it's $179, marked down from $229, at Pottery Barn. Above: The classic midcentury Hoop Chair , with a powder-coated steel frame and and vinyl cording, is available in a range of colors; $325 from Potted.  Above: Walter Lamb's original 1940s  Lounge Chair made use of bronze and copper tubing salvaged from ships in Pearl Harbor. These days, the design is made of brass (which develops a patina over time) and marine-grade, UV-stable cording; $845 from Design Within Reach. Above: We first featured Ikea's  Brommö Chaise Lounge in 2010, and right afterwards, I bought two for my London garden. Four years later, they've aged gracefully despite being left outside during long, wet winters. And when not in use, they fold up neatly and hang on the exterior wall of the shed; not bad for $59.99.
