People should step up their beach and deck furniture game with an X-Z Chair or two. This outdoor seating option may look like a typical, albeit stylish, version of a beach chair, but it boasts some uncommon features that sets it apart from its low-brow sibling. Two of the X-Z Chair's crowning features are its extendable flap, which provides shade from the scorching sun at whim and a discreet pocket beneath the seat that is roomy enough to store such beach staples as sunblock, water bottles and magazines.

Created by the Croatian-Austrian design collective known as Numen/For Use, the X-Z Chair has a sturdy and warm frame made out of Acacia wood, which pulls both of the flaps taut to ensure they don't collapse around the sitter.
