Three Things to Know Before Buying Outdoor Lounge Chairs

You deserve to stretch out when you’re outside.

Outdoor furniture sometimes feels uncomfortable. Folding chairs, hard benches and the like are good for protection against the elements, but not so much for relaxing. A good outdoor lounge chair will enable you to stretch out, feel the sunshine and enjoy your outdoor space comfortably.

There are several varieties of outdoor lounge chair, and all have their place (we love to lounge and would never want to limit the amount of lounging you do!) If your space is limited, look into a folding lounge chair—these can expand to a full chaise when needed, and folded flat and stored away when not in use.

If you’re looking to place a lounge chair near a pool or hot tub, look for quick-drying, water-resistant fabrics like Textilene. These are artificial fabrics made of plastic, and they’re perfect for poolside furniture due to their water resistance and UV protection. Neither sun nor rain will hurt or fade them.

Other types of outdoor lounge chairs are designed to stay put in one location. Don’t overlook these—in much the same way as you install a hammock in one place, a chaise can become a part of your outdoor layout. A carefully placed and arranged outdoor chaise will quickly become your favorite place to read, nap or simply daydream.
