Outdoor Chairs

Outdoor chairs are among the most functional furniture pieces that also provide a decorative touch and create the look that you want in your outdoor space. Just like sofas, chaises or sectionals, outdoor chairs are there to provide your seating for lounging about your patio or garden or entertaining friends. More than just being creature comforts, however, outdoor seating also works well as a decorative element in various styles and shapes that enhance a blank space and let you express your style. Pair the chairs with the dining or coffee table of your choice and you’ll instantly turn your outdoor space into one of your family’s favorite areas in – or out of – your home.


Pottery Barn offers a fine selection of outdoor chairs in various styles, shapes and materials in designs that include occasional armchairs, armchairs, Adirondack chairs and rocking chairs. Our outdoor chairs, and all our outdoor furniture offerings for that matter, have a sturdy construction that enables them to withstand damage due to their exposure to the elements. Wicker, for example, is a favorite outdoor furniture material, and we offer several wicker outdoor chairs fortified with eCollege, a material that replicates the look and feel of natural wicker fibers but is highly resistant to degradation caused by heat, sun, rain and cold.


Many of our wood outdoor chairs, on the other hand, come from eucalyptus or teak hardwoods. These species of wood are highly durable on their own, but the wood in your furniture, particularly the eucalyptus, is kiln-dried and boasts mortise-and-tenon joinery, which makes each piece stronger and more durable. Teak is rich in naturally occurring oils, which makes our teak pieces more resistant to moisture and rot. This species of wood also looks better as it ages and begins to show wear while still remaining solid and sturdy. The wood that we use on our furniture is Forest Stewardship Council-certified, which means that the process of harvesting the wood is sustainable and complies with responsible environmental standards.


Our wicker outdoor chairs are available in armchair, rollarm and occasional chair styles. The Ecolene wicker fiber weaves onto a durable, rustproof, welded-aluminum frame. Some of our wooden outdoor chairs have an additional protective finish that seals out moisture, which makes the chairs more durable. Many of our outdoor chairs come with plush outdoor cushions that make them more comfortable. The cushions come in either tufted or plain designs and have a ring-spun cover that’s water and moisture resistant.
