If you tend to avoid buying and owning crap, look to Lafuma for your deck furniture. I checked the usual suspects in town, finding only junk and cast metal suitable for your Mother-in-Law's house. I already own Lafuma's larger lounge chairs; they are spectacularly comfortable and worthy of years of use. These smaller chairs are much lighter and portable. I appreciate the support and comfort, and expect that they will also provide many seasons of deck activity. One word of caution - they are not constructed such that I would seat my larger friends (250+ pounders) in one. They are not THAT big. Backcountry gets 'em to you with not shipping, too.
