Poolside furniture: Planning the perfect setting for 2022
The sun is shining, and the lazy days of summer holidays are calling. For some, that means heading off to seaside locations, for others it’s soaking up summer at home – especially if you’re lucky enough to have a pool in your own backyard.
If you’re looking to add a little pizzazz to your poolside space, then you’ve come to the right place. From sun loungers to Adirondack and steamer chairs, to cantilevered umbrellas, outdoor chaises and more, we have a beautiful range of poolside furniture that looks stunning now, and will stay that way for many summers to come.
The Essential Poolside Chaise
The Amalfi Teak Chaise Lounge is one of the most popular pieces of poolside furniture, in our teak deep seating collection, as it doubles for outdoor lounging and sunbathing by the pool in ease. Made by combining an Amalfi Centre Piece with the opulent and oversized ottoman, the pair work effortlessly together to form a chaise style lounger with room for more than one. Plush, comfortable Sunbrella® fabric covered cushions are also included; as with all our deep seating products. Made here in New Zealand and available in four chic shades, they are durable as well as comfortable and elevate the style of any piece they sit upon. The Amalfi’s 100 per cent Grade-A teak frame means that it is built to last, with a bold looking frame and timeless appeal.
Relax on an Adirondack or Steamer
Also in handsome teak, the Adirondack Chair has long been regarded as a popular choice for poolside relaxation all over the world. Designed for hours of lounging, the legendary Adirondack makes it almost impossible not to relax once you've settled into its high back and reclining, backward sloping seat resting oh so close to the ground. An added bonus: extra-wide armrests for balancing drinks and small plates, right when you need them. Traditional and comfortable, our teak Adirondack chair has been a steadfast favourite since it arrived in our stores. It features the quintessential five back panels, elegantly curved up on a high angle for the ultimate in relaxation. If you’re looking for a little extra, our Teak Adirondack Chair Set includes a beautifully crafted matching footstool - just add a side table for the ice bucket and you need never get up.
Or, with its slim silhouette and classy and sophisticated air, our Classic Teak Steamer Chair is another great option for days by the pool. The folding design makes it easy to stow away when it’s not needed, and the full length means you can stretch out in style. Made from the highest quality teak available anywhere, this A-Grade teak piece is finished with statement brass hardware that most definitely elevates it above the rest.
Poolside furniture: the Modern Sun Lounger
Strong and dripping in style thanks to a 316 Stainless Steel frame, our Summer sun loungers are a gorgeous mix of contemporary looks, utilitarian functionality and no-cushion-needed comfort. Batyline® fabric provides resilient springy comfort, while maintaining air-flow, resistance to chlorine and other environmental factors and incredible good looks whilst the spectacular, micro–polished marine-grade 316 stainless steel frame adds style and strength. The final gorgeous touch is a thin teak piece in place on each of the arms, for a sun lounger you won’t want to leave.
The aforementioned Batyline® is a fabric made with polyester fibre and finished with an outer layer of PVC, and you’ll find it everywhere in our offering including the beautiful Abbey Relaxing Chair, Summer Relaxing Chair and more. Its unique combination of fabrics creates extreme durability with special characteristics including a low total stretch, no instance of cracking and very good resistance to natural environmental elements. This makes Batyline® ideal for poolside furniture and any pieces which must retain showroom quality good looks while also staying outdoors year round.
Or if you’re looking for chic and cool in crisp white, our contemporary Glaze Aluminium Outdoor Sun Lounger offers modern luxury in a wonderfully sleek form. An adjustable back and wheels at one end for ease of movement make for a premium but always practical piece, while the use of outdoor, UV treated mesh and powder coated aluminium ensures this beauty will look great long after Autumn’s return.
Keeping It Shady
Lastly, when it comes to the perfect pool setting, you can’t go past a cantilevered umbrella made using Sunbrella® fabric that delivers shade all day long. We can’t rave enough about the unique makeup of Sunbrella® fibres, which come saturated with highly UV stable pigments. Traditional dyeing methods only add colour to the fibre’s exterior, but Sunbrella®’s performance characteristics are an integral part of the fabric. This means they are not an applied finish that would wash off over time, and will maintain their signature hue for many years to come.
Choosing a quality outdoor umbrella option for your pool deck that can either tilt or rotate ensures that you are protected from UV rays, no matter the angle of the sun. Our large cantilever umbrellas like the Ascot, Kingston and Caribbean styles are ideal for adding extra protection exactly where it’s needed, and look absolutely stunning while doing so. The main benefit of modern cantilever umbrellas is that they can shade a large area without the obstruction that a central pole causes. Our Kingston Cantilever is an impressive 4m square and does a full 360 degree turn, so that you can lock the base in place by the pool and still have shade in a variety of areas.
