Longing for Lawn Chairs

I'm about two weeks behind everyone else, but I'm finally starting to think about what I want to do in the yard this summer. There is a big swath of unplanted dirt that needs some direction and I think I've figured out which ornamental grasses and perennials I want to plant there.

Which has me thinking about lawn chairs. I think I'll set two right down in the middle of whatever I plant with a bench or table for potted herbs.
It is quite clear to me that growing up around beaches, lakes and rivers in New England has rendered Adirondack chairs my first and immediate choice. What isn't as clear is why the wood chair is cheaper than the two recycled plastic chairs.
