Chasing the Affordable Chaise

We're already into the work week, but I've still got the weekend on my mind. While Saturday was all about paint (Yes- Holtwood House is finally sporting fresh colors!), Sunday was spent fussing about the patio and surrounding yard in preparation for the lazy days of Summer.

One of the first outdoor purchases we made last year were some chaise lounges to complete the pool deck. After weeks spent searching web stores for an attractive chair at a reasonable cost, we suddenly stumbled upon a killer deal at our local Costco and snapped them right up. But I must admit that the overall search was a bit frustrating. There seemed nothing to be had for under $200- and we were looking for four of them.

Though we're no longer in the market, this year there seems to be an abundant crop of attractive chairs priced very accessibly. Should you be looking to stretch out by your own pool this summer, here's a couple of not to be missed chaises I've come across that will not break the bank.

While I typically would search first CB2, West Elm and IKEA for modern patio furniture,  there's always a gem to be found among the home furnishings at JC Penney. Don't discount this retailer, especially when looking for seasonal items or ready-made window treatments.

I spotted that plush aqua lounger last week on Target's website and nearly fell over after seeing the price. Similar chairs sell for twice the cost elsewhere. The back of the chair features some fretwork detail that will surely add a bit of glam to your poolside decor as well. Target actually has some really nice options in a variety of shades and styles in this price range.

If you own a membership, Costco and Sam's Club are also great sources for affordable patio furniture. I recently spotted the same loungers we picked up last Spring in our local store. If you're willing to risk sell-out, we saw these same chairs go for half of the original price on clearance at the end of last season.
