Today I'm on the hunt for wicker. I love wicker (usually the unpainted kind) and think it can be so perfect for your front or back porch. In this case, since we already have a porch swing, I think it will be perfect for our back deck. Here are some options I found today.

2 Pier One matching wicker chairs. Each originally ~ $150, now $80 for pair or $50 for one.
$35 OBO. It is in good condition. It measures 21 inches tall by 16 inches wide.
Happy Birthday to me? That's what I said to Tim. He didn't really take me seriously.

This wouldn't work for our deck, but I love a good fixer-upper, so I couldn't resist! Some people might like that green velvet.... no thanks. I'm down with velvet. It has a time and a place. But this chair could be brought easily into present day with some new padding and material. I'd have a debate with myself about painting it, but it would be on the table as an option. I guarantee you this chair could look like $150 with minimal help.

I can't wait to have a deck porch. I also can't wait to have some wicker to set on it. Patience is hard to come by!
