From on-trend string comfy outdoor chairs to rattan pods, there are countless ways to elevate your outdoor seating. If you’re looking for chairs that are long-lasting and low maintenance, consider wrought iron or metal garden chairs (although these can rust quickly) and wipe-clean HDPE plastics (also known as synthetic resin or poly rattan). Wood is another stylish choice but it’ll need more regular upkeep, such as sanding and staining.
Whether you’re lounging poolside or enjoying the sunset, you want an outdoor chair that is not only comfortable but also looks great. For the best of both worlds, try this swivel lounge chair with a handwoven wicker and rust-proof aluminum frame paired with fade-resistant Nuvella fabric cushions. You can even switch out the cushion covers for a new look throughout the season.

A twist on the classic Adirondack chair, this one from West Elm comes with a curved back that’s crafted from moisture-resistant mahogany and eucalyptus woods. It’s available in two stain hues and pairs nicely with this brand’s Portside Outdoor Dining Chairs, which are also crafted from rust-proof aluminum.
Another teak option is this swivel lounge chair from West Elm, which is made from reclaimed wood that’s been salvaged and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. It’s also topped with a fade-resistant Nuvella fabric that can be easily rinsed and cleaned to keep it looking like new. It’s a little bit more pricey than the other chairs on this list but is well worth it for those who are committed to maintaining their outdoor furniture.
