Enjoy the first days of spring by lounging in the Adirondack chair of the future. From an ex-real-estate guy in Winchester, Massachusetts, Archie’s Island Furniture offers tweaked versions of the classic outdoor loungers and tables found in way upstate New York. Archie (that’s his real name) styles his wares into contemporary takes on familiar shapes, using environmentally harvested mahogany and hard-shell boat enamel in bright, happy hues like Pineapple, Periwinkle, and Bonfire. The result? Surprisingly sophisticated furniture that looks ahead and gazes back at the same time. $90-$750. (800) 486-1183, www.archiesisland.com.
