Even the most modest pool can look impressive with a couple of modern pool lounge chairs by its side. Creative, cool, and inviting modern loungers have so much character you won’t need to add anything else to your outdoors.
Pool lounge chairs come in different styles from classic chaise longues to outdoor lounge chairs and creative hybrids between the two. While some are perfect for sunbathing others are more versatile and practical and can double as regular seats.
Chaise longues are popular because they embody poolside idling in full its glory. Newer designs even allow to immerse them into water for the ultimate refreshing poolside rest.
Fiam‘s Contract Tango lounge chair is a perfect mix between a chaise longue and a lounge chair. Its aluminum frame makes it light while its texfil fabric can withstand the elements. In addition the wooden armrests add a warm luxury touch to the design.
Paola Lenti specializes in pool lounge chairs offering a wide variety of shapes and designs. Surf is a sleek adjustable chaise longue that has three positions and comes in textured Rope fabric.
Stylish and cool Surf can be outfitted with pads and pillows for more comfort. Also available in silver grey it’s bound to make a statement in your outdoors.
Sun loungers are very much like chaise longues out of which they morphed but they have evolved into something between chaise longues, chairs, and sun beds.
Skargaarden‘s Nozib Sun Lounger is a cool modern design made of teak slats and leather headrest. No familiar aluminum or fabric. And its shape is simply intriguing.
Frontgate offers a Wake Chaise Lounge designed by Porta Forma that looks nothing like a typical beach chaise longue.
Its sculpted shape disguises the aluminum frame. And its woven Carbon resin wicker lends it a luxurious and stylish look. With just a couple of these a simple deck can turn into an attraction.
Reimagined pool chaise longue Caribe is a part of Roberti Greenfield Collection. Curvy sophisticated shape makes it stand out among even modern designs let alone your typical sunbeds.
Standing on a table-like support base Caribe looks elegant and probably makes you feel like levitation is possible.
Multi-Functional Sun Loungers
Vivere‘s The Original Dream 360° chair is one for the practical homeowners. It doesn’t just act as both a lounge chair and a chaise longue, it also has an integrated 6 point umbrella that allows to instantly create a shady spot wherever you choose to place it.
Available in a range of bright hues The Original Dream is a great space/money saver.
EGO Paris‘ pool furniture assortment is one of the best on the market. Clever designs and designing shapes make them retreat staples.
Tandem is a collection by Thomas Sauvage who combined pool lounge chairs with wooden slat tables creating seats that faintly remind us of an airport. Unusual but convenient.
Another outdoor furniture guru brand is Dedon who designed a now iconic hanging wicker lounger. Exploring shapes beyond familiar recliners Dedon created a Leaf beach chair Peter & Glass Associates used in their Sydney landscaping project.
Sculptured outdoor pieces like Leaf are not only incredibly luxurious but they can also bring a decorative element to your pool like nothing else.
Fibonacci Vantana Double Chaise from Janus et Cie is designed by a similar principle, to bring a decorative touch to the pool deck.
Besides it’s unusual curvy shape Fibonacci seats two people for a quality relaxation time with your loved ones.
Again Dedon brings an innovative shape to outdoor furniture designs with a colorful Floor Rocker beach chair you can place on a deck just above the pool water to dip your toes in.
Bright and lively Floor Rocker is bound to make the outdoors feel like a place of a non-stop fiesta.
Designers Jules and Jason Henry of SVEGLIO designed a rocking chair for indoor and outdoor use called Volo that also promotes family quality time.
Take a moment to lean back and enjoy its slow motion with your loved ones or hog the spacious hammock lounger yourself to get some well-deserved rest.
When it comes to hybrid design there isn’t anything quite like outdoor furniture. Daybeds that double as rooms, ottomans-cum-coffee tables and limitless variations of sofas, loungers, and chairs make choice almost impossible.
Sponeck is the definition of hybrid design. Conceived by Green Form it uses an ottoman as a side table all the while creating a chaise longue type of seating in a tandem with said ottoman. Clever!
Paola Lenti keeps combining daybeds with chaise lounges and chairs. Frame is a result of such experiments.
Featuring a single armrest Frame is a bench, a bed, and a chair. Modular elements can also turn it into a double daybed with a side table or a spacious chaise longue for two.
EGO Paris keeps bringing life to outdoor design with their Kube collection. Space-saving pool loungers are not only multi-functional, they also bring a decorative element to a pool deck.
Their laser-cut armrests and matching side tables come in various bright hues while the double seat cushions extend to allow you to stretch your legs after a lap or two.
Outdoor Lounge Chairs
Actual outdoor lounge chairs can also make good pool chairs. Sure, you won’t be able to lie down and fit your entire body on one but they aren’t just cheaper than loungers, they also take up less space.
Skargaarden designed a classic simple outdoor hammock chair that beckons to sit back and enjoy the fresh air. What sets it aside from similar designs, though, is a comfy cushioned headrest.
Roost‘s Butterfly is an iconic modern lounge chair that makes a perfect pool lounger. Looking like a cross between a hammock and an outdoor chair Butterfly looks appealing in any color or print.
Linen finish is the best for the outdoors, though as it looks both crisp and summery, creating a nice contrast with the blues and greens of the outdoors.
Cane Line‘s Breeze lounge chair is perfect for any location, but it looks especially good near a sparkling blue water creating a sharp contrast with its dark frame and angled shape.
Contrasting white cushions add more comfort to the reclined woven seat that looks like a pure embrace.
Another one of Roost’s iconic creations is Ellipse chair. Its woven oval seat is like a basket or a cobweb that beckons to fall into it.
Somehow both modern and contemporary it would make a perfect accent for a pool deck and interior alike.
Pool Lounge Chairs
Amalfi adjustable lounge chair has a traditional metal base but its soft sleek cushions add a contemporary touch to it.
The stainless steel lounge seat comes with an ottoman and would look great in both modern and traditional garden or backyard.
Hexagonal Hive chair does not only look intriguing but it’s so spacious you can drown in its cushions. With a white base and a contrasting dark print it looks like a perfect addition to a contemporary home.
You don’t need a set of pool lounge chairs to decorate a pool deck. One or two can be enough, especially if they’re as full of character as these stylish seats.
