Outdoor Chairs for a Stylish Patio

Create a patio area that's stylish and comfortable with outdoor chairs from Pottery Barn. With the right furnishings, it's easy to transform your outdoor area into a great space for relaxing and entertaining. Whether you plan to lounge by the pool or host a backyard barbecue, there are chairs in the selection to suit your needs.

Types of Outdoor Chairs

Patio chairs aren't one-size-fits-all. There are chairs to suit every aesthetic preference from casual to elegant. They're crafted from sturdy, weather-resistant materials such as wood and wicker for lasting beauty. Pottery Barn also has outdoor furniture covers to impart even more protection from the elements. Here are just some of the patio and garden chairs to consider:

  • Swivel Chairs: This type of chair has a modern appearance that's understated yet eye-catching. Another advantage is that you can turn the chair 360 degrees without having to move it.
  • Occasional Chairs: Also known as accent chairs, occasional chairs are a great choice for any patio area. They come in a variety of styles and can be grouped at a table or even placed on the porch. You can also position these chairs by the pool for a comfortable place to sit when you're not in the water.
  • Rocking Chairs: An outdoor rocking chair is yet another option for your patio. This type of chair lets you relax with gentle rocking and has a traditional look that enhances any outdoor space.
  • Papasan Chairs: If you love an exotic look, you can't beat a Papasan chair. These round wicker chairs have plush cushions for luxurious comfort.

Placing Your Patio Chairs

There are plenty of possibilities when it comes to positioning your garden chairs. As previously mentioned, you can use them around a patio table for dining, on the porch or by the pool. You could also put them in groups of two or three on your lawn to provide a comfortable spot to sit and enjoy the sunshine. A wicker side table in between two chairs is a good addition, as it can be used to hold drinks and other essentials.
