We are down to our last three timber director's chairs on the deck. We used to have eight. The canvas fabric is perishing before our very eyes. (I was heavy-handed with a bottle of bleach a few years ago ...)
It has even gotten to the stage where our BBQ invitation list is dwindling in direct proportion to the demise of each chair.
We now only BBQ with one extra adult - the newly separated or constantly single. It doesn't make for a jovial BBQ atmosphere.
So, the perfect outdoor chair. Does it exist?
- must be able to endure damp weather and harsh afternoon sun on a covered deck
- cannot be too heavy or large
- cannot be padded
- look good (according to me)
Here are some contenders on my list:

Italian - with leanings towards Swiss cheese.
Jenny cafe chair

Very plain and also the cheapest on my list. The cafe up the road has something similar and they were very likeable in person.

I've heard these urban chairs are not comfortable or is that a malicious rumour?
Ebay - Vintage tulip style fibre glass chairs
Not sure who made these chairs but I have friends who have a similar set and they look fantastic on their deck.

I like vintage Sebel chairs but will my deck look like a pub's beer garden. Hmmm...I could live with that anology if the beer is low carb and cold enough...
What do you have as outdoor dining chairs? I'm very interested because I don't like to reinvent the wheel.
