Outdoor chaise lounge furniture was our first outdoor pool furniture purchase. Your pool deck is like another room of your house - only outdoors and it needs to offer some of the same comforts. Relaxing by the pool with a good book and a cold drink in our outdoor chaise lounge chairs (yes, we both need our own) is a favorite way for us to enjoy our pool area. Styles range from modern to traditional and from wrought iron to resin wicker. Check out some of the options available here ....
Our neighbor put in a new swimming pool last year, and her first pool furniture piece was an outdoor double chaise lounge.
Made of all weather wicker, it is as beautiful to look at as it is comfortable to sit in.
This chaise lounge furniture looks great and is so comfortable thanks to some really thick, nice looking outdoor wicker cushions.
Add a couple of pillows to give it some color and extra comfort.
Our wrought iron chaise lounge is an adjustable chaise lounge. Sit upright for reading or watching kids in the pool or completely recline to a flat position which is perfect if you'd like to lay on your stomach for a little snooze.
What we love about these outdoor chaise lounge chairs are the wheels that allow us to move them easily to anywhere around the pool. Sometimes we like to be in the shade and we will move it to a shady spot. Other times some warm sun is welcome and we can move it to a sunny place.
The outdoor lounge chairs get used almost as much as our outdoor patio table and chairs. We love to relax on them with a good book, our feet up, and a cold drink.
When shopping for a metal chaise lounge you will find that they are rust
resistant. Wrought iron outdoor pool furniture has been specially
treated and then powder coated. Many companies state that the special
treatment will give you "years of rust free enjoyment." That has been
true with our metal chaise lounge. We have had it for 10 years, and I
just inspected it while writing this page, and surprisingly still no
signs of rust. But when it does happen you can sand it off and spray it with Rustoleum spray paint.
A wide range of styles are available in this metal - from classic to modern. Prices vary as well from $200 to $2,000. Believe me we did not pay $2,000 - we paid around $200. Wrought iron chaise lounge furniture can be found at your local Home Depot or Lowes as well as outdoor furniture stores. They can also be purchased on-line at Amazon here:
Metal chaise lounges all need outdoor chaise lounge cushions. If
you are looking to buy a new outdoor chaise lounge, you can sometimes
save money if you buy the chaise lounge with the cushions as a set.
Instead of moving the lounge chair to a shady spot or moving an umbrella to the lounge chair I finally purchased a clamp on umbrella. It has a universal clamp that clamps on to most surfaces whether it is tubular or square. I clamped mine onto the arm rest.
The umbrella swivels 360 degrees so I can always be protected from the sun. It can be positioned in just about any way - higher, lower, left or right, tilted up or tilted down.
The special lining provides the maximum sun protection of UPF 50+. It's a lot cheaper than buying a tilt patio umbrella and takes up way less storage in the winter. Check it out at Amazon here:
A resin wicker outdoor chaise lounge provides a classic look with no maintenance.
The wicker is actually not wicker, but a resin material that is durable and long lasting. This outdoor furniture can be left outside (bring the cushions in during the winter). Hose it off when it needs to be cleaned.
There are many different color options, from this dark brown to white or black.3 Piece Wicker Rattan Chaise Lounge Chair Set Patio Steel Furniture Black Wicker
Both of them are weather resistant. This wood is well-known for its natural resistance to decay, mold, mildew. The wood can withstand being outside but will weather and take on a more driftwood type appearance. As the wood is exposed to the outside elements, the color will change. Teak changes to a light gray weathered look. If you'd like to keep the original color and sheen you can regularly apply teak oil .This lounge pictured has a cool slide out tray to use for your drink or snack. An adjustable back provides a choice of several comfortable positions and wooden wheels make it easy to move or maneuver. A wood outdoor chaise lounge can be quite heavy, so get one that has wheels so that you can move it easily to another spot.
Outdoor chaise lounge cushions are necessary for most outdoor lounge chairs. They not only provide comfort, but style and color as well.
Whether you are buying them at the same time you are buying your chaise lounge furniture or as replacements, it is important that you check that the outdoor fabric is fade and mildew resistant.
Cushion thickness will determine comfort. If you are in the store try the cushions out on a store model. Be sure to shop for your patio chaise cushions in the spring or early summer while the selection is still good.
These cushions can also be purchased on line, but it is important that you measure your existing cushions or the chaise lounge to be sure you get the right fit.
