This time of the year marks the beginning of patio season.

We’re mere days away from crossing that all-important temperature threshold that separates early spring from late, at which point we’ll be able to sit al fresco, cold beer in hand, without shivering in a down jacket and wool socks.

And for the backyard-equipped, campsite-frequenting or otherwise spatially uninhibited folk, that means it’s time to dig out the camp chairs.

Below, five assorted seats for cradling your keister, sorted by the venue where you’ll be posting up.
