Italian Busetti Garuti Redaelli designed the appropriately named Lapel chair for Ligne Roset’s latest outdoor collections. Cords weave from the seat frame over the rounded back and fold like a collar back toward the base. From $825; ligne-roset.com

For Arpa, from MDF Italia, Spanish designer Ramón Esteve took design cues from the harp. Cushions appear suspended from the orthogonal frame and cradled by a network of elegantly thin string. From $6,340 (armchair), $10,530 (sofa); ddcnyc.com

Price upon request; brownjordan.com

The success of Paola Lenti’s Telar lounge chair last year led the Italian company to extend the whimsically sophisticated, technicolor collection to include a pouf, chair, and chaise longue (shown). The structure is finished in hand-brushed proprietary lacquer. From $4,225; paolalenti.it

Inspired by rocks and sand patterns found in Japanese gardens, Hong Kong–based André Fu designed Rock Garden for JANUS et Cie, which combines teak, JANUSfiber, and textured Alabama Ceramic tabletops into serene silhouettes. $1,685–$15,271; janusetcie.com
