Depending on the climate you live in, Summer means a whole lot of time spent lounging around the pool with drinks and close-friends. In between taking dips in the deep end, where else are you going to absorb the warm sun rays? To make sure you’re fully prepared for Summer, here are some poolside furniture ideas that will prove to be your best investment thus far.
Leaving furniture out by the pool means that it will be exposed to the full spectrum of elements. Make sure that you have durable furnishings that won’t wither away in just a few years. Enjoy free shipping when you order high-quality outdoor furniture from Patio Productions.com.
Safety Tip: Remember that amidst all of the fun and games, it’s important to keep an eye out for young children around the pool. I recommend reading this post to learn more about pool safety for children.
Lounging VIP Poolside
There are many different types of outdoor furnishings out there but I have a few in mind that are perfect alongside the pool. Whether you’re looking for the perfect spot to tan or a cozy spot to dry off, the right patio furniture can make or break your experience. To make sure that your patio furniture is up to par with industry standards, you want to look for furniture with powder-coated frames, UV inhibitors, Sunbrella Fabrics, and warranty information. For everything from materials, thread style, and brands catalogs, you should read this Patio Buyers Guide for a complete list of details.
1. Outdoor Daybeds
Find a momentary escape from reality. Outdoor daybeds allow you to take a nap outside. You’ll often see these in commercial venues such as vacation resorts and upscale hotels (Pssst! Are you a hotel, resort, or HOA with a pool? We are the experts on commercial patio furniture). You’ll feel first class curling up in your daybed while listening to sound of water lapping in front of you. When not in use, it’s suggested that you protect your outdoor daybed with a furniture cover to reduce sun exposure.

2. Chaise Lounge
Just thinking of July puts me in the “Summer” state of mind. The open blue sky, warm sun rays, and the gentle ocean breeze. I like to enjoy every moment of Summer laying back on a comfy chaise lounge chair. Now don’t quote me on this, but I think that the chaise lounge was invented for the pool. Unlike a daybed, it allows you to have an angled support that keeps you from falling asleep while comfortably perched above the bed. Or you can doze off if you have an hour or two to spare.

3. Bistro Set
Typically coming as a pair of chairs with a small side table, bistro sets are made to facilitate conversation amongst long-time friends and new acquaintances. You can set up pods of bistro sets around the rim of your pool. Bistro sets make for an intimate spot to engage in after a romantic dinner outside.
4. Outdoor Sectionals
Outdoor sectionals work well when positioned on the slab leading up to the pool. Although you can set them up closer to your pool, it may make more sense to pull them closer to the house to have them centrally located. Yet and still, there are modular pieces that allow you to rearrange sectionals in your own unique configuration. These can come in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes that will fit the theme of your home.
5. Adirondack Chairs
Adirondack chairs are a classic staple in poolside decor. Reminiscent of summer itself, the Adirondack encapsulates the entire idea of vacation and sweet relaxation. These chairs are noted for their low-profile, classic design that features flat armrests and deep-seated design. The look of the Adirondack is timeless and memorable. Best of all, you can find them in eco-friendly recycled Polywood materials.
