Marcel Breuer designed Chaise Lounge (1), at $2,722, might become a family heirloom. At less than 10 times the cost, the IKEA POÄNG lounger (2) is not as unique but it's an attractively priced, well-designed option. Then there's the BluDot Toro Lounge Chair (4), which certainly isn't cheap at $1,099, but the elegant and classic design is certainly worth giving up a few dinners out for. I also love the simplicity of the leather Butterfly Chair that is available from Urban Outfitters for $199 (5) even though it's personally not my favorite place to shop. Or there's the handmade version with higher quality leather from Circa 50 (3) for a couple hundred dollars more. Ultimately, I'll make a decision based on the piece I love the most that I think will fit best in the space — a 1950s ranch filled with mid-century as well as modern pieces. If I go for one of the higher priced options it might mean a few extra months of saving up, but that just might be worth it in the end. What factors do you weigh when buying a new piece of furniture?
