With daylight savings time and spring on the way, it’s time for more vitamin D and soaking up those warm rays of sunshine outside. You can turn a porch, patio or deck into a totally posh hangout with the addition of one simple furniture piece: the outdoor chaise lounge. These pool chairs are the ultimate way to sit and relax outside, and they transition well from summer to fall because you can easily swap out pillows, throws and cushion covers to match the season. If you’re ready to outfit your outdoor space with some new furniture, we’ve rounded up the best, most stylish outdoor chaise lounges for every budget, from Target buys under $150 to swoon-worthy, resort-inspired pieces to durable wood that will last for years. Take a peek at our top picks below and treat yourself to a new outdoor chaise lounge.
While there are metal chaise lounges under $100 online, that sweet spot between $100 and $175 is where you can score both style and savings. Target and Wayfair have similar curved wood chaise lounges in this price range, and I’m really digging this modern rattan chair from Amazon, too. Also, Target has a huge selection of chaise lounge cushion covers under $75 that are worth browsing. A cute printed cushion can make an old patio chair look like new. And let’s talk about this pint-sized chaise for kids — how cute is that?
If you can push your budget above $200, that’s where you start to see real wood such as acacia instead of synthetic, manmade materials. I also spotted some nice features like a slide-out table for drinks or even a single-chair canopy for shade. And this white mesh chaise lounge from Target is a total design dupe of a similar metal chair at CB2 — except this one is almost $200 cheaper.
Chaise lounges in the $300-$500 range are both chic and savvy. I spotted some great buys that include a cushion in the price such as this striped chair from Amazon. I also love this multipurpose chaise daybed situation. It’s a great way to change up your seating and offer different seating options even if you’re short on space.
At the $500+ level, there are several resort-worthy chaise lounges such as this double lounger from The Home Depot. I’m obsessed. I think it would be cute enough to bring inside for a sunroom, too. This chaise set from Wayfair features built-in wooden tables for easy access to drinks, snacks or sunscreen while staying trendy and modern in design.
If you’ve got the budget for a total patio overhaul, brace yourself for some seriously gorgeous chairs. With a $750-$1,000 budget, you start to see more premium materials such as teak, eucalyptus and wicker. And though these prices are high, it’s an investment that pays off. If you take care of your patio furniture and clean it regularly, teak and wicker especially will last a long time.
And now for the Cadillac chaise lounges. Past $1,000, things get fancy with ultra-plush, spa-style cushions and unique features such as the built-in cooler in this double chaise from AllModern. Not having to get up to go to the kitchen? That’s a true luxury.
