The Relaxing Chair

Everyone wants to indulge in a little bit of rest and relaxation when it’s hot, and our carefully curated selection of relaxing chairs represent that, wherever you are. Whether it’s under a Pohutakawa, on the balcony or facing the ocean or pool, we have a relaxing chair option for every aesthetic, and every scenario.

If you’re looking for modern comfort with an intriguing and glamorous silhouette, our Vena Wicker Tub Chair is a beautiful option for outdoors or in. Unaffected and chic, Vena is just the piece you’ll love to curl up in and relax in your own time, and your own space. A modern wicker chair in a realistic wooden hue, Vena is made from premium quality Viro® polyurethane wicker, and specifically built to withstand outdoor use. The Vena Relaxing Tub Chair would look gorgeous seaside or on a dock, in the garden, or on an outdoor patio surrounded by greenery.

Alternatively, sink into the Wright Relaxing Chair, a piece constructed with soft, sumptuous rope, thick cushions, and an elegant frame. Oozing luxury and glamour, situate this stunning chair on your veranda or in the garden for a perfect piece to relax on a warm summer’s eve.  Made from premium outdoor products and built by master craftspeople, the Wright Relaxing Chair is one you will enjoy for years to come. Our outdoor rope is UV treated, and through dyed for an excellent outcome in a quality, long lasting chair. The chunky weave is fabulously modern, and the cushioning comes filled with Quick Dry® foam, so you can rest assured you’ve confidently picked a truly robust piece of outdoor furniture.

A perfect porch piece, our St. Moritz Folding Recliner is a classic, comfortable reclining chair designed to fit in on your patio, veranda or in a tranquil spot in the garden. Versatile and convenient, it also folds for easy storage, making it perfect for having on hand when unexpected guests arrive for drinks or dinner. Traditional in style and very comfortable, our St. Moritz Folding Recliner is constructed from substantial cuts of A-Grade Teak, highly regarded because of its high levels of natural rubbers and oils, ensuring a quality product that will have a long life span. Try a St. Moritz placed around one of our large Round Pedestal Tables, or even a couple in the garden with a Large Nest Table; creating a special spot for your morning coffee or drinks as the sun goes down.

Alternatively, if an urban edge is what your garden space is crying out for, look no further than our Raw Modern Bench. Plucked straight from a design magazine, it offers style and superior materials in one clean, beautifully streamlined piece. A simple half rectangular design means that the Raw Modern Concrete Bench suits a multitude of different spaces; making for a great standalone piece for your garden, or on a patio to compliment your concrete or teak dining table. Crafted using a composite blend of resin and concrete so that it is substantially lighter than solid concrete, it is also easy to move around when needed and perfect for outdoor use.

The Sun Lounger

Sun loungers are the key to creating a truly relaxing destination at home, and an essential for every pool deck.  We are all spending a lot more time closer to home these days, and for the ultimate in staycation style you can’t beat a hotel-worthy sun lounger in which to soak up the rays in style. Whether your poolside is Bali boho or coastal cool, a sun lounger is a summertime indulgence we can all make room for, no matter the size of your al fresco space.

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 lockdowns have inspired you to spend more time by the pool, 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?

Tango and Mesh Lounger?

If you’re looking for a sun lounger crafted using our much-loved Grade-A teak, the Tango Teak and Mesh Sun Lounger just may be the piece for you! Solidly constructed, as aforementioned, using Grade-A teak, it is covered in hardwearing outdoor mesh and sports marine grade stainless steel and aluminium components for added durability. This lounger can also be adjusted in six different ways, whether you want to sit up and enjoy an afternoon cocktail or rest completely flat. In addition, easy manoeuvrability is a given thanks to two back wheels lined with rubber for durability.

Alternatively, the Malibu sun lounger is another Design Warehouse favourite, and even comes with a slide out drink tray for your bottle of water, glass of Pinot Gris or fruity poolside cocktail.
