Not sure what design fits your home best when shopping for outdoor accent chairs? Don't worry; we have you covered. Check out a few tips below for inspiration and practical styling advice as you shop our curated line of outdoor lounge furniture.
Tips for Shopping Outdoor Accent Chairs
When outfitting an open-air lounge, elements like outdoor armchairs impact not just the look but also how you live in it. As you shop, you want to weigh practical considerations against your aesthetic vision to create a space that invites you in—or out. Our two timeless tips for outdoor design are to mind your material and always picture the piece in your space.
Material is essential when it comes to shopping patio chairs—but the perfect material is the one that makes the most sense for you. When styling outdoors, we are often working with dynamic arrangements that we adjust to the season or occasion. We may want an area that transitions from family nights to summer soirees—or a sometimes lounge that we can easily store when the season is over. Lighter-weight materials like aluminum and wicker can offer strong, resilient frames that are easy to move around.
If you want your space to feel more established—or are updating a sunroom or covered porch—try shopping for indoor/outdoor chairs that lean more into that transitional feel. The Orlena Outdoor Swivel Chair offers a beautiful, allover fabric chair suited for use outdoors or in with a performance fiber slipcover for easy care. Outdoor fabric chairs and cushions use olefin and other specially designed fabrics to offer a soft touch that can hold up to wear and tear or even style poolside—but be sure to check your specs and follow any care instructions for lasting outdoor style.
While upholstery can create a pleasing contrast to an outdoor environment, echoing more natural textures in your design is a great way to curate a space that seamlessly folds into its surroundings. We love patio accent chairs that use organic materials like wood to evoke a warm, grounded feel. Not all wood is made equal—if you're looking for that piece that will hold up for years to come, consider a teak chair. Teak naturally contains water-repellent oils and resins, and with a bit of care, it seasons beautifully. Rattan outdoor chairs are also a great way to bring warmth and texture to your space—but consider opting for all-weather wicker for added resilience in the elements. This Arcadia Indoor / Outdoor Swivel Chair pairs a classic wicker base with an artful silhouette perfect for an artfully-appointed lounge.
Lounge Layouts with Outdoor Armchairs
As you shop styles, it's good to take a step back and think about the space as a whole. What is the setting? What is the footprint? What are those extra elements that will make the area an inviting place to live and lounge? Here are a few ideas to get you started as you dream up your fresh-air escape.
The Lone Lounger
Not every outdoor space has to be for entertaining—sometimes, we just want a comfy place to grab some fresh air or a quiet moment. A chic but casual outdoor chair or oversized lounge seat is the perfect way to turn an unused corner of your patio or terrace into a cozy hangout. Or for something unique—try styling this Gibbs Indoor / Outdoor Hanging Chair as a standalone garden lounge chair where you can slip off to read a book or enjoy a drink. Layer in some soft touches for a refined feel—pillows, and poufs or an outdoor rug are the perfect way to elevate your curation.
Fit for a View
Indoor-outdoor design is all about taking advantage of your surroundings—working with the setting and natural scenery to create impact. Whether framing a mountain view or styling a coastal lookout, sometimes less is more. We love a pair of casual outdoor chairs for an intimate spot to unwind or host a friend for an afternoon chat. Don't forget the small, practical touches—a side table for drinks and an umbrella can really extend your use of the space.
If you're going for a more classic lounge, try anchoring the area with a fire pit or outdoor coffee table to create a focal point for guests to gather around. Tailored collections can offer a clean, cohesive look, but for a patio lounge that stands out, consider mixing and matching. The key to the mix is to keep some unified thread and experiment with others—finish, shape, and material are all elements you can play with. For example, you could style a few teak outdoor chairs with complementary but varied silhouettes for added interest.
However you style it, remember that outdoor accent chairs allow you the flexibility to showcase your design aesthetic. From a casual slingback design to a comfy garden accent chair, finding outdoor elements for your look is about blending functional appeal with a personal touch.
