Wood Chaise Lounges That Make Your Outdoor Living Space Truly Spectacular

Relax in front of the swimming pool, beneath your favorite tree or under the stars in a wood chaise lounge from Pottery Barn. Choose from sustainably-sourced, kiln-dried hardwood lounges featuring ultra-soft, water-repellent polyester canvas or Sunbrella® cushions to transform your outdoor living space into a luxury retreat.

Wooden outdoor furniture is the perfect addition to your backyard, whether you're big on entertaining or you prefer to relax in solitude. Set up a series of lounges and wood tables near the pool, along the edge of your patio or deck, or on the grass near a fire pit to create a wonderful gathering space for your family and friends.

The best woods for chaise lounges are typically teak, mahogany, acacia and mixed woods that meet the stringent standards of the Forest Stewardship Council®. These woods are naturally strong - or engineered to be strong - and weather-resistant, which makes them the right choice for your outdoor living space.

Standard Chaise Lounges Made From Wood

Standard-sized chaise lounges comfortably fit one person, although measurements vary based on style - some are built for compact spaces and allow you to fit more lounges in a smaller area. Choose one with a simple silhouette that helps you maintain a minimalist look or pick something more elaborate with boldly patterned cushions to create your dream space outdoors.

Double Chaise Lounges

Extra-wide for cozying up and relaxing, double chaise lounges are the perfect place to snuggle or sprawl out with your favorite book. Choose one with a canopy for an even more luxurious retreat near your pool or just outside your back door. You can even find outdoor daybeds with canopies if a full-sized double chaise lounge isn't in the cards for you.

Features to Look for in a Chaise Lounge

While every chaise lounge has its own list of fabulous features, be on the lookout for these:

  • Two back wheels for easy mobility
  • Three or more back-adjustment positions
  • Finished exposed hardware
  • Kiln-dried hardwood
  • Mortise-and-tenon joinery
  • Sunbrella® or water-repellent polyester canvas cushions
  • Wood that's been sustainably harvested and meets FSC standards

Caring for Your Chaise Lounge

Taking care of your wood chaise lounges is simple with an outdoor furniture cleaning kit. Here's how to ensure your furnishings look great every time you use them:

  1. Brush away loose dirt and debris.
  2. Wipe away spills as soon as possible.
  3. Use a gentle fabric cleaner every few months.
  4. Scrub or sand away mold or mildew (depending on the material).
  5. Fill in scratches as soon as you notice them.
  6. Cover your items when you're not using them or store them indoors - and always bring cushions in out of the elements during winter.

Adding wood chaise lounges to complement your other wooden outdoor furniture is a fabulous choice. They're incredibly stylish, comfortable and low-maintenance, which means you'll be able to enjoy your time in the sun, beneath the stars and everything in between.
