Deep seated patio furniture offers widened dimensions to increase the comfort of your outdoor patio furniture. This is well-suited for taller individuals and those who enjoy the feeling of laying back on their outdoor sofas. On the contrary, normal seats can make you feel as though you are sitting on the edge of your seat. This creates discomfort and detract from your overall experience.
This article will provide more information behind the design of deep seating patio furniture sets as well as provide some of our most popular options. Patio Productions specializes in high end patio furniture. Visit our homepage to browse a wider variety of products.
Deep Seating Outdoor Furniture
Deep seating furniture describes furniture that features an extended depth on the seat bottom. This means you have more space to scoot back in your seat so that your entire upper leg is on the sectional. This is highly recommended for individuals over 6′ tall.
Although deep seated furniture is seen as an upgrade, it may not be ideal in all cases. Shorter people can sometimes feel as though the depth of the seats create a feeling of being “sunken” into the sofa where your back is not able to reach the seat back when your scooted all the way back with the back of your knees against the front of the sofa. In this case, standard outdoor seating would be suitable for you.
In the instance that you have individuals in your family that are both tall and short, you can consider adding extra throw pillows to create a compromising solution for both parties.
Key Features of Deep Seating Furniture:
- Spacious Design
- Overstuffed Cushions
- Generous Frame Construction
Deep Seating vs Standard Seating Dimensions
As a primary example, many customers comment about the depth of the Barbados Collection from Sunset West. This is not to say that the Barbados is inferior to any other sectional set. In fact, it is one of our most popular items. Just as you would have to find the right size fitting for your shoes, the same is true for your outdoor furniture. The image below demonstrates the difference of seating dimensions between our deep seating sofa (left) and the Barbados collection which has a much more narrow depth.
