With summer on the horizon, we're freeing our sofas and armchairs from their sheepskins and on the lookout for ideal warm-weather seating. Our pick of late: elevated versions of the classic lawn chair in woven leather or cotton with frames of thin steel or pale wood.  Here are 10 favorites—some classics, some brand new, and all ideal for the next heat wave. Above: Designer Eric Trine is a master of the form, from  woven leather steel armchairs  to stackable chairs with undulating oak frames . The  Rod + Weave Chair , shown here,  is made to order in Trine's LA workshop; it's available with a black or white metal frame and vegetable-tanned leather for $1,200. See variations of the chair on Gardenista . Above: Jasper Morrison's  Tagliatelle Chair  is a reinterpretation of  Giandomenico Belotti's Spaghetti Chair . It's made enameled steel woven with belts of elastic fabric, and is available in a stackable or armchair model. Contact Suite NY for more information and pricing. Above: Designed in 1997 by Morten Gøttler for Carl Hansen & Søn, the  Cuba Lounge Chair  has hand-woven cotton straps on a Danish oak frame with brass hinge mechanisms (it folds for easy storage and an accompanying wall hook is sold separately); $760 at Design Within Reach. Above: Designers (and siblings) Benjamin and Jessica Klebba of  Phloem Studio  in Portland, Oregon,  offer their  Nadine Lounge  in a range of domestic hardwoods woven with leather straps (shown) or seat belt webbing. Contact Phloem Studio for pricing and availability. Above: The classic  Armchair 406  designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek is made of sustainable birch with linen webbing. Shown here in black, it's also available in natural, blue, brown, white, and red; $1,490 at Matter in New York. Above: Mark Albrecht's Woven Side Chair is made in the US from loosely woven vegetable-tanned leather stretched over a black steel frame; $1,475 at Suite NY. Above: Jens Risom's  Lounge Chair  was first designed in 1941 for Knoll and has woven cotton or nylon webbing over a maple or walnut wood frame. The chair has mortise and tenon joints and the seat is attached with invisible screws; $938 from Hive Modern. Above: The  Black Leather Palapa Chair  is designed by husband and wife team, Steve Nasker and Charlotte Stone (he makes wooden furniture, she makes  leather sandals ) of Pacific Wonderland. Made in LA of birch plywood and black leather, the design ships flat with instructions for assembly; $1,050 from Sunroom or Pacific Wonderland . Above: Inspired by the classic camping chair, the Normann Copenhagen Camping Chair  has a beach frame with a seat woven from khaki-colored canvas or  vegetable-tanned leather (shown) ; $2,450 for the canvas and $3,500 for the leather from Normann Copenhagen.
