Ikea Outdoor Furniture Spring 2012

Two Ikea Outdoor Chairs I'm Longing For — but They're Not Available in the United States!

Two new outdoor chairs have made their ways to Ikeas around the world, but they haven't landed in US stores yet. While I'm not contemplating a trip across the northern border into Canada quite yet, I am eager to see these chairs stocked in the US. And at least one will be, since it's already listed on the website (just without availability at this time).
While the Hogsten may not have the most graceful name, this gorgeous chair is a total looker. Made from woven plastic rattan, it has an organic look, but its plastic exterior means it is very, very low maintenance and quite durable — an absolute must for outdoor furniture. You can also purchase the matching footstool, which is equally cute. The Hogsten is currently available at a few Canadian Ikea stores, according to the website.

I love the idea of a durable, outdoor-friendly rocking chair, so the Vardmo has risen quickly to the top of my list. Designer Nike Karlsson explains it by saying, "Simplicity made the design of Vardmo rocking chair work well — so well that it rocked on the first attempt. With clean lines, there is a neat appearance even when no one is in the chair. I imagine this furniture peacefully rocking back and forth on porches and in living rooms."

The chair isn't yet available on the US website, but I'm crossing my fingers it will show up soon. You can add a cushion to it, but I love the look of it bare. Oh, and that pretty red shade? It's available in Norway.

Are you a fan of either of these chairs, or are you looking for another look for your outdoor furniture this season?
