Sun loungers – the key to creating a great holiday destination at home

January 9, 2021

It’s becoming more and more apparent that in this day and age, outdoor furniture is increasingly being designed with style in mind. In fact, it’s becoming quite difficult to spot a piece designed purely for the outdoors, as so many would look equally as perfect indoors and play an essential part in the design of a thoroughly modern home.

We are all spending a lot more time closer to home these days, and for the ultimate in staycation chic you can’t beat a hotel-worthy sun lounger in which to soak up the rays in style. Whether your poolside or patio is Balinese style, Palm Springs or Riviera chic, a sun lounger is a summertime indulgence we can all make room for, no matter the size of your al fresco entertaining space.

Sun Loungers for All Occasions

A sun lounger is also a must-have piece of outdoor furniture that anyone can enjoy. It’s where you can while away hours reading as you soak up the sun, or take your remote working situation outdoors with the help of your laptop, a shady spot and the perfect lounger to suit. And if lockdown has inspired you to spend more time in the garden, then a relaxing lounger is the investment you’ll be happy you made even after the world at large returns to normal.

From contemporary loungers fit for a five-star resort, to quirky designs spotted poolside at a hip boutique hotel, sun loungers are the ideal way to transport yourself to a holiday location. Choosing the right sun lounger for you shouldn’t just be about your garden or patio’s measurements either. You’ll need to think about positioning to catch the best of those much-needed rays, and take some time to consider lifestyle, too. Do you want an adjustable lounger you can prop up, allowing you to get stuck into a magazine before lying it flat for a nap? Or would you be content with a structured style that’s designed for ultimate comfort, but less for an all-over tan?

Most sun loungers are designed for solitude and come as single day beds, but of course you can pair them up to suit your space. Some are even sold in sets of two complete with a handy in-between side table, adding a social element that begs an ice bucket and chilled bottle of rosé.

From the informal chaise lounge to the all-day lounger, Design Warehouse offers a plethora of beautiful and functional sun loungers, daybeds and sun beds that includes meticulously crafted teak day beds and teak steamer chairs. Each piece in our range of specialty loungers and relaxing beds is carefully designed so as to be the perfect mix of form and function, being as durable as they are a statement in style. In addition, the ample dimensions of all of our teak daybeds, stainless steel poolside loungers and Batyline® mesh loungers allow you plenty of room to relax and read a great book or enjoy a cool beverage, and their weather resistance takes a little of the worry out of New Zealand’s often inclement climes!
