THE DRIFT

Three interior designers —and AuthenTEAK trade members—share their favorite outdoor chaise lounges and why they love them. From eye-catching shapes to low-maintenence features, these patio loungers combine chic style with lasting quality. Here’s the drift:

Two chaise loungers by a pool.

1. Talenti Breeze Sunbed
Made from weather-resistant, powder-coated steel, Talenti’s Breeze Sunbed is a modern take on the classic outdoor chaise lounge, making it a designer favorite. “My eye was immediately drawn to the shape of this chair,” says designer Addie Sandidge of HK Architects. “Its simple but unique silhouette would add a perfect, unexpected pop to a modern outdoor area or poolside.”

“This piece has its own personality, which I love,” notes Hailey Pennington, also of HK Architects. “It provides a modern take on a classic outdoor chaise lounge. This is a perfect reflection of what could be used for a luxury resort, high-end residential home, or a charismatic outdoor bar/ lounge.”

2. Sunset West Laguna Chaise Lounge
Durability meets design in Sunset West’s Laguna Outdoor Chaise Lounge, which features a soft cushion upholstered in weather-resistan Sunbrella fabric.

“The number one request I get from clients is low-maintenance,” says designer Abbi Williams of Red Door Design Studio. “My clients don’t want to spend time cleaning or maintaining outdoor furniture. This chaise gives my clients the ‘warmth’ of a real wood look, but it’s actually a driftwood powder-coated aluminum frame. And it visually mixes well with other outdoor furniture collections for a truly custom look that helps to create a luxury resort feel in a residential space.”

3. Gloster Grid Lounger
When it comes to patio loungers, Gloster’s Grid Lounger is at once classic and contemporary. “This chaise takes a classic footprint and gives touches of a contemporary aesthetic,” says Pennington. “Any project that is blending the traditional with new, this piece would fit right in. It effortlessly blends different finishes and textures to bring together a seamless design.”

4. POVL Outdoor Menlo Stacking Chaise Lounge
Beloved for its simple yet sleek design and quick-dry materials, the POVL Outdoor Menlo Stacking Chaise Lounge is an ideal low-maintenance option. “This clean, classic design is a favorite of mine because of the quick-dry sling, which means you’re not dealing with damp or dirty cushions,” says Williams.

“You're also not storing cushions away at the end of the season; you simply stack these chairs in a flat position,” she adds. “Clients love the lack of cushion maintenance and the comfort and coolness of the sling design. It’s also lightweight and easy to move, with small wheels.”

5. Kingsley Bate Steamer
A four-position backrest and removable footrest make this foldable outdoor chaise lounge by Kingsley Bate a compact and comfortable choice. Made with high-quality teak, this patio lounger is also weather-resistant and incredibly low maintenance. “I love this chair for the nostalgic vibe it gives me,” says Sandidge. “This chair is perfect for a sunny day spent at the family lake house.”

6. Cane-line Peacock Daybed
A plush take on outdoor chaise lounges, Cane-line’s Peacock Daybed is constructed of Cane-line’s sturdy, sturdy all-weather Cane-line Weave. A small teak table is the perfect perch for a happy hour beverage and can also be combined with Cane-line’s outdoor parasol for added shade.

“Every patio and hardscape needs a few statement pieces that visually anchor the space,” says Williams. The daybed has a rounded silhouette that gives patios much-needed structure and definition. And it also has a parasol option! Perfect for moments of taking a break from the full sun.”
