Past and present join hands in the latest seasonal selections from Brown Jordan. The past: Cricket II, a reissue of the 1979 folding chair by Henry Glass, flaunts a frame of powdercoated aluminum that collapses to less than 1 inch tall. The sling seat is Suncloth, a proprietary textile incorporating Sunbrella solution-dyed acrylic. The present: Richard Frinier's Sway series in powder-coated aluminum. Seating is inset with UV-resistant thermoplasticpolyester mesh; aluminum or glass tops the tables. Somewhere in between: Kattan II, designed in 1956 by Tadao Inouye and refreshed by Frinier with machine-formed brass and Suncloth straps. Frames of the rocking and lounge chairs, ottoman, and tables develop a rich patina or retain their original sheen through occasional polishing. 800-743-4252; more
