Lounges are no longer restricted to the inside of our homes; nowadays, it's perfectly acceptable to have a lounge outside, too! Outdoor lounges have obviously been adapted to suit the difference in conditions, made from durable materials and fabrics that can withstand snow, sun and rain. Whether you fancy an outdoor lounge for entertaining the masses, or a simple two seater for some quiet moments with family, there are a huge range of outdoor lounges available now to suit every taste and budget. The only boundary is the limit of your imagination! Take a look…
This incredibly versatile and goodlooking outdoor lounge set is from Jusi Colour. As you can see, the shape and design is both aesthetically pleasing and functional, given that the couches can be pushed up against the coffee table for storage when the warmer months are over. With the option of two high back lounges and two large stools, this intimate seating area is perfect for relaxing in the company of friends or all alone with good book.
Woven furniture is extremely durable and resistant, and makes a great choice for an outdoor lounge. This L-shaped couch comes with an additional footstool so you can kick back and relax after a long day. The earthy material palette and texture makes this lounge well suited to the outdoors, blending in against both a country style or Mediterranean themed garden. Whether situated poolside or on the grounds of a country estate, this example from World of Weave is sure to please.
For those who want something different, albeit a little playful, why not change up the traditional notion of an outdoor lounge and invest in this stunning two seater oak swing set. From Sitting Spiritually, you can meditate, have a moment with a loved one, or even rock an unsettled child to sleep in the comfort and privacy of your own backyard, patio or veranda.
My Italian Living brings us this functional and exciting polypropylene stackable sofa that is extremely durable and most importantly, weather resistant. Available in a wide range of colours, the feet on the bottom of the lounge are anti-skid, meaning it will always stay in place. If you have more than one, come winter time, you can stack the lounges up together and store them safely away until spring returns.
Lastly, but definitely not least, we finish this ideabook with a very different kind of outdoor lounge. Created by Green Oak Furniture, this award-winning piece is designed to be used alone or in the company of one other person. Held together by gravity and two wedges, is it surprisingly comfortable thanks to angle and height of the backrest. This lounge looks romantic set amongst the lush green grass and overgrown trees, however, it could also take on a Nordic, minimalist feel if positioned in a rock garden or timber deck.
