The materials of sturdy outdoor chairs
Because they are for outdoors, these chairs are made from durable materials that can withstand cold, heat, moisture and other environmental conditions. Materials like wood, plastic and metal are popular options.
Metal outdoor chairs
Metal is one the most common patio chair materials because of its durability and sturdiness. Outdoor metal chairs are very easy to clean, they have protective coatings and come in plenty of styles to match your outdoor areas. You can choose metal materials like aluminum, iron (cast iron, wrought iron) or steel. Aluminum chairs are rust-resistant and lightweight, while iron and steel chairs for outdoor use are heavier but usually more suitable for windy conditions.
Wood outdoor chairs
Wood is another fantastic material because it will last a long time and there is a plethora of design options to choose from because of this material’s popularity. Wooden outdoor chairs are available in durable wood materials like teak, bamboo, acacia, eucalyptus and cedar.
Plastic outdoor chairs
Generally, the high quality synthetic chairs are all weather outdoor chairs. Weatherproof outdoor chairs such as polywood, HDPE, poly lumber, rattan PE, resin or all weather wicker are the common options. Typically, rattan PE or wicker chairs for outdoor use have metal frames.
Comfy outdoor chairs in many sizes and shapes
- Choose a small outdoor chair or one with a low back if you need a comfortable outdoor chair for a small space.
- On the flip side, high back outdoor chairs will provide you with the necessary support for your back and neck, and wide and extra wide outdoor chairs can offer you plenty of seating space.
- If you need a more elevated relaxing experience with a patio chair, shop for bar height or counter height outdoor chairs. Both of them have a higher seat height than standard patio chairs.
- High quality patio chairs are available in many shapes. In case you like completely round chairs, shop for papasan chairs for outdoor use.
Unique outdoor chairs with style
Are you in need of a great way to beautify and instantly refresh your deck or yard? A gorgeous outdoor chair is the perfect choice because it can carry out the task. There are many options when it comes to deciding on a chair style. Each style has its own aesthetic benefits. Choosing the right style will not only give a certain character to your outdoor living space but can also add a welcoming and elegant touch.
From vintage, retro and antique metal outdoor chairs, to farmhouse, rustic, boho, modern or outdoor wicker chairs, you will find the style you need in our shop. They have an affordable, yet elegant style with a visually appealing personality that will host you for many years to come. Take your favorite patio or yard to the next level, with our stylish and affordable outdoor chairs.
Colorful outdoor chairs
There are many colors that you can use and combine to create the aesthetic look that you want. Black, white, brown and red are the most popular colors. However, this does not mean that you have to choose one of the popular options. Additionally, you can find blue, gray, pink, green, orange and more.
So how do you decide what color works best for your patio or deck? Well, it comes down to your outdoor living space needs. For instance, if you live near the sea or lake you can mix and match yellow, beige and blue colors for outdoor chairs and their cushions to create a nice coastal style for your patio.
Do you need a table for your new cozy outdoor chair?
Well, it’s very unusual to find a table, indoors or outdoors, without at least one chair or some other seating option. These two go hand in hand. However, the opposite isn’t always true. Many outdoor chairs do not require the presence of a table, whether it’s a bistro, dining or side table, to make you feel comfortable.
Consider the table’s size and tabletop height
Do not take into consideration only the chair’s seat height. For example, when shopping for an outdoor chair with arms that you plan to fit under a table, you have to make sure that the height from the ground to the upper part of the chair’s arm is smaller than the height of the table top. What’s more, if you plan to purchase two or more chairs to accompany your large outdoor table, then measure the distance between the table’s feet and check the outdoor chairs’ width.
What is the most comfortable outdoor chair for a fire pit?
We love fire pits. Having a fire pit in your patio or garden is a spectacular way to enjoy our outdoor living areas and we spend a lot of time around them, especially in the evenings. For this reason we need really comfortable outdoor chairs. Well, the obvious choice are Adirondack chairs. However, you don’t have to follow this norm. You can choose other comfy outdoor chairs such as rocking, swivel, glider or lounge chairs.
