The Coolest Outdoor
Seating Options

Want to win summer 2019? Outfit your outdoor space accordingly.

Maybe you've got a spacious backyard with a pool deck and a pingpong table. Maybe you've got a modest patio with just enough room for a fire pit. Even if you've only been blessed with a small balcony, make the most of your outdoor space this summer by outfitting it with some handsome seating options. After all, is there anything better than sitting out in the fresh air with a cold drink and good company?

But there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your outdoor seating. Materials matter here. Teak is a time-tested wood that will wear most gracefully. Pieced and glued wood items likely won't even last the whole summer. If you're looking for something lower in price, try acacia wood, which performs well when treated with a weather-proof finish. You also want to consider weight, when dealing with breezy areas or terraces that are prone to strong gusts of wind.

If you're the type to hang out for long stretches, consider investing in upholstered cushions that provide a lot more comfort than the handsome but hard wood and metal options. Then, you simply have to find some chairs that suit your personal style and the aesthetic of your environment. To help you make the most of your outdoor space, we've pulled together a few of our favorites.
