buyers guide: choosing the perfect sun lounger

a gorgeous addition to the deck, pool-side or patio - our sun loungers cut a clean, classic profile - perfect for soaking up the sunshine all year round.

with so many options out there, it can become overwhelming to settle on the right type of pool lounger for your space. our buyers guide will help to simplify things so that you can make the most of the gorgeous Summer days that are just around the corner.

convenience: your weekends and holidays are a time to de-stress and relax - which is why convenience is top of our list.

1. choose pool loungers that can remain outdoors throughout the season so that you don't have to trouble yourself with taking them in and out of storage often.

2. wheels: there's no risk of muscular strains from trying to carry your lounger from one spot to the next when there are wheels involved. 
great for chasing the sun or re-positioning to keep an eye on the kids from outside the pool. our Cayman Sun Lounger features discreet wheels, keeping the silhouette chic and clean and is available with the choice of grey or off-white cushion.

design: opt for beautiful outdoor furniture pieces only - high quality loungers can create that luxurious spa-like feeling at home. now who wouldn't want that? 

while functionality is foremost, we believe that well-designed loungers/ daybeds are the only type that should be brought into a sophisticated outdoor space. 

structure: the great debate in the world of pool loungers: fixed or foldable. while foldable loungers such as the Jaipur Sun Lounger can save on space when not in use, fixed loungers like the Cayman Sun Lounger or Portals Sun Lounger are almost always more generous in size and offer far more comfort and sturdiness. 

opt for loungers with adjustable back-rests so that you can truly get comfortable.

material choice: this combines our top two points of convenience and design.

a pool lounger with removable cushion is a great happy-medium here - see the Cayman Lounger with white or grey cushion; Portals Lounger (dark or light), and Jaipur Lounger with Cushion for this option.

we love the quick-dry, fuss-free, straight-from-pool-to-lounger solution that is textaline as featured in the construction of the Portals Sun Lounger. super flexible and comfortable, the fibres and weave used in textiline allow you to completely chill out without having to worry about a wet bathing suit while you soak up the sun!

(added bonus: UV-protected & easy to clean - no fade, no fuss)

what about wood?: hardwoods such as Eucalyptus, teak and acacia are great woods to use in the construction of a sun lounger. 

soft to the touch and incredibly durable, these woods are perfectly suited to time out in the sun given their tropical origins.

low maintenance, with only once-a-season oiling required to keep 'em looking gorgeous - see our range of maintenance products, including sun lounger covers, textile cleaner and transparent wood protector here.

all-weather, maintenance-free resin: a great option where fuss-free is top priority, resin loungers such as the Pacific Sun Lounger Set and Jaipur Sun Lounger (in Graphite) shine. these offer the attractive look of wicker without worrying about fade, peel or unraveling.
