166 Eclectic Outdoor Chairs

Whether we're soaking in the rays or watching the sun go down, we all love spending time outdoors — especially if our patio furniture is comfortable. Finding the right outdoor chairs can make or break your time outside; after all, an uncomfortable chair, or complete lack of seating, makes your patio, porch or deck much less appealing. Fortunately, there are a lot of options out there. Adirondack chairs are trendy right now, and much less expensive than a full-blown patio set. Rocking chairs, swings and gliders are classic porch staples, while lounge chairs ensure ultimate relaxation. Read on for more details about your options. More

What kind of patio chairs are out there?

You would think that picking patio furniture is simple, but it's not: There are a lot of options! Before you make your selections, think about what purpose the chairs will serve. Are you looking for pieces to surround your outdoor dining table? Search for something that has enough height and doesn't lean back too much. In the market for a comfortable relaxation chair? Try out an adirondack or cushy lounge chair. Need to fill up that front porch space? Rocking chairs, swings and gliders are always classic additions. You can even mix and match to cover all your seating bases. You can never have enough chairs!

How many patio chairs should I buy?

As you get ready to buy new outdoor furniture, think about your space and what will properly fit without feeling cramped. You want to ensure there's plenty of seating on hand for guests, but you also want room to walk around your deck, porch or patio. For a proper entertainment space, variety and quantity is key. Create an outdoor living room with two patio chairs and an outdoor sofa, and then add a bistro table and counter-height chairs off to the side. Crowd four to six chairs around an outdoor dining table, or add four laid-back adirondack chairs near the fire pit. Be more selective with your front porch, though; most are small and therefore can only house two rocking chairs, along with a porch swing.

What outdoor furniture material works best?

Since the furniture will be spending most of its time outdoors, you want to invest in waterproof and weatherproof materials. While that should be your first consideration, you should also keep in mind what works with your eclectic style preference. Teak, metal and rattan are popular contemporary choices, while wood and wicker with fluffy fabric cushions are common traditional options. Plastic and aluminum pieces are often more affordable, though not as heavy duty as other materials.
