best poolside lounge chairs

Staff

A pool is a boon in the summer for so many reasons. Pools are, most obviously, a wonderful way to have fun, exercise and cool off. But a big part of the pool experience happens outside of it. If you like to relax, get some sun, and catch up with family and friends, or get into a few fun summer reads between splashes, you’ll need a pair of poolside lounge chairs to maximize the experience. Thankfully, there are a plethora of options.

What to Look for

One thing to keep in mind with poolside chairs is that there’s going to be a lot of water involved, so definitely prioritize fast-drying materials. Ideally, the poolside area should be a stylish and comfortable oasis, so keep the overall look of your other furniture, flowering plants and the pool’s design in mind when selecting colors and shapes. Also think of how adjustable you want the loungers to be, and whether you want cushions or not.

We rounded up the widest array of poolside lounge styles and prices we could find. All of our selections have been highly rated by customers for durability, looks and comfort. All come from companies with excellent customer service as well.

This super comfortable double-chaise lounge was built with kiddos in mind. The frame is constructed from Sanmu wood, and the lounge seats feature beige and white fast-drying cushions.

The mini-chaise is designed for kids ages 3-8. 

Users raved about its looks, and several mentioned they don’t even have kids. “We bought this for my dogs so they could enjoy summer pool days with us. They love it and use it all the time!” wrote one enthusiast.

Best Luxury Set

Falmouth Reclining Chaise Lounge Set with Cushions

Sol 72 Outdoor
wayfair.com

$1,039.99

This lounger set could double as a pair of daybeds. The frame is crafted with aluminum, but wrapped in vanilla-cream-colored resin, making it weather-, water-, UV- and rust-resistant, and giving it a Hamptons-chic aesthetic to boot. 

The chair can be reclined to six different positions, and the cushions are soft, quick drying and weather resistant. The set comes with a one-year warranty. If it’s in your budget, these are worth the splurge.

Best Wicker Set

Blanche Faux Wicker Loungers

Christopher Knight Home
amazon.com

$323.51

This dark brown faux-wicker set has been crafted from polypropylene to be especially durable and weather-resistant. The backrest is adjustable. Customers love the classic look of the wicker, the sleek, modern lines and elegant curve of the design. This set will appeal to traditionalists who also value comfort. 

You may want to add a water-resistant cushion or pillow because even though the lounge is ergonomically designed, the material is hard and doesn’t have “give.”

You’ll never want to get in the pool once this patio chaise lounge is set up. The frame is constructed from rust-resistant steel, with all-weather PE rattan on top. Each lounger is topped with a 2.3-inch thick water-resistant cushion. The cover is made from 250G polyester, which means it’s breathable, UV-resistant and is easy to remove and wash. 

The back can be adjusted to five angles. There is a shelving board on the right side of each chair, leaving room for a plate of snacks, a drink and a beach read.

The frame is made from steel and aluminum, with a wear-resistant Oxford fabric that is comfortable, water-resistant and supports up to 330 pounds. 

This chaise can be adjusted from 11 inches to 32.5 inches with four fixed positions. It also comes with a side pocket for stashing your phone, snacks, reading materials and a drink, and a sunlight shade to protect your eyes and face while lounging in the sun.
