Pour a tall glass of lemonade, grab a great paperback and relax in the sun. Our outdoor lounge furniture collections feature plenty of pieces that are ideal for sitting back in the shade or summer entertaining. Choose from a great selection of chaises, outdoor sofas, benches and outdoor chairs. Recreate your living room on the patio or create a cozy corner for summer siestas. Pottery Barn offers outdoor furniture in durable materials such as wood, metal and wicker.
The ideal outdoor lounger furniture pieces for your patio, porch or deck depend on how you intend to your space. If you love relaxing in your living room in the evenings after work or chatting with friends over coffee, you can get the same effect outdoors with an outdoor sectional. Our collections offer a variety of sectional sets in different sizes and colors. You can also build your own sectional with modular components to create a custom style in your space. If your patio space is limited, you can also get a living room effect with an outdoor sofa and chair. Simply arrange these pieces as you would set up your living room furniture.
Benches, armchairs, rockers and Adirondack chairs work well on porches, balconies and smaller patios. They offer excellent places to rest between pulling weeds in the garden and provide great spaces for relaxing with a cool summer drink. Outdoor chaises are ideal for poolside patios and reading corners in the shade. These loungers let you recline to bask in the sun or enjoy your favorite magazines. All-weather ottomans add additional seating when you have company and can double as round coffee tables in an outdoor seating area.
Size is another thing you should consider when choosing outdoor lounge furniture. Large patios and decks can accommodate bigger pieces such as sectionals and couches; however, you may want to choose small benches and chairs for your porch or balcony. The feeling of open space is one of the greatest joys of relaxing in an outdoor lounge area, so you should be sure to leave some room between pieces. If you are unsure of how your desired chair or sofa might fit in the area, you can use masking tape to mark out the dimensions on the ground.
Materials and maintenance play key roles in how your outdoor lounge furniture holds up over the years. Our outdoor furniture is made of durable materials that can withstand all kinds of weather. Metal furniture frames are low maintenance and easy to clean, which makes them ideal for any climate. Wood such as teak can withstand rain and snow, and it remains sturdy after many years of use. To keep your wooden outdoor furniture looking fresh and new, clean it regularly and apply new stain every one to three years. Wicker is a strong, yet lightweight material that is easy to move into the garage for the winter months. Although wicker is water resistant, you can help it maintain its color by covering it with outdoor furniture covers when you are not using it.
Many of our outdoor lounge pieces include cushions; however, you can add padding to hard-bottomed benches and chairs with our outdoor patio cushions as well. Our collections also feature a variety of decorative pillows that can add color and comfort to your lounge area. Pair pillows with throws to experiment with contrasting colors and prints and stay warm on chilly evenings. Be sure to store decorative pillows and throws indoors when you are not using them. You may also want to store outdoor patio cushions indoors during poor weather conditions. You can also use furniture covers to protect the fabric when you are not using your furniture.
