We talk about pool furniture and pool chairs here on the blog often. The more we do, the more we realize that people have a real interest in the topic. Some of our readers are curious about brands like Ledge Lounger or the AquaOutdoors line. Others are just looking for good quality furniture that can hang out on their pool deck all summer long before moving into storage.
Whatever your reason for Googling, we hear you. We decided that with summer approaching, it was about time to dive into a more granular series on the best pool furniture options. Over the next few posts, we’ll be breaking down the best pool chairs, couches, chaises, and tables for in and around your swimming pool.
Today, we’re talking about chairs. Whether you’re interested in investing in a high-end product or you’re on a budget, here are five pool chairs we love.
Steel Mesh Zero Gravity Lounge Chair Recliners
It’s a chair, it’s a chaise, it’s the best of both worlds. If you’re looking for something to take you from watching your kids to reclining with a drink, this is it. Not only are these zero gravity pool chairs super comfortable, but they are super durable as well.
This Amazon buy can hold up to 250 pounds, and it is made of UV resistant material. This means that even the most intense summer rays won’t ruin your summer vibes. Season after season, this steel mesh material is designed to last years before needing replacement.
These pool chairs feature a locking reclining system. The locking mechanisms allow you to feel secure once your chair has been reclined into its desired position. Finally, removable headrests, and a cup holder tray mean you can get extra comfortable poolside.
We should note that this chair isn’t great for in the water, and should be kept on the pool deck. Currently, you can buy your own on Amazon. $120.00 will get you a set of two chairs, so invite a friend to your next sunbathing session.
Sport-Brella 3-Position Recliner Chair
If your ideal poolside relaxation session does not include glaring sun, we have you covered. What if your pool chair could also guarantee shade? This Amazon pick does exactly that. Featuring an attachable and removable umbrella, getting the glare out of your eyes so you can focus on your summer reading has never been easier.
This pool chair pick also comes with a removable footrest. At under 12 pounds, this pool chair is easy to haul around your yard, and lightweight to store when the summer season is over. The stainless steel frame is durable, but should not be submerged consistently. Shop on Amazon.
Curved Steel Chaise Lounge Chair Swing
Ready to think outside the box? This curved pool chair provides the ergonomic comfort of a chaise with the support of a regular chair. The unique, c-shaped frame is made from tempered steel, and can hold up to 265 pounds with ease.
This model comes in 5 different colors, and the gentle suspension swinging will help you catch a breeze even in the hottest months. Unlike some other pool chairs, this design comes equipped with 2 inch thick cushions. This means additional comfort, with the option to add or remove the pillow headrest. There are a lot of upsides to this pool chair, but it’s not the right choice for everyone.
We can’t deny that the dimensions of this pool chair may leave something to be desired for those who have a small space. At 73″D x 46″W x 78″H, it’s not exactly a small space pick. However, if you are looking to fill up an empty pool deck, this could be a great choice. Available for purchase on Amazon for $229.99.
Ledge Lounger Signature Chair
Up until now, our other picks have been best for poolside lounging. But what if you’re looking to take your chair off of the pool deck and into the water to relax on your tanning ledge or sun shelf. If that’s the case, you may want to consider a specially designed chair made to withstand months of being submerged in water.
As we’ve discussed in previous articles, Ledge Lounger products are some of the most popular in-pool furniture pieces on the market. Their upright chair is great to compliment a chaise piece, or to surround an in pool table.
Still, like we’ve mentioned, a product from this brand doesn’t come cheap. While you can expect quality and a great look, you can also expect to pay around a whopping $700 for this chair model. Not exactly a budget pick, but it should last you forever.
Ledge Lounger Barstool
While this isn’t exactly a standard chair, we feel it’s worth it to mention some more unique options for readers who may be looking to fill a more niche need. If you have a pool with a swim up bar, or a similar feature, you may have had stools built in. But if you didn’t then finding seating to outfit this new area can be tricky.
On Ledge Loungers long list of unique products is their in-pool bar stool. This stool comes in two different height options, and prices range from $479, to $499 per stool. This is also a great option to add elevated in-water seating to a pool that doesn’t feature a tanning ledge or baja ledge. Like all of the company’s products, the bar stools come in a range of colors and finishes. Shop on the Ledge Lounger website.
