Reclining Chaise Lounges You Need in Your Backyard

Reclining Chaise Lounges You Need in Your Backyard

Of all the items people put in their backyards these days, chaise lounges are one of the most functional pieces of furniture. An outdoor chaise lounge is the perfect combination of a chair and a sofa. The elongated section lets you put your legs up and relax, while the seat and backrest allow you to sit up or lie down. Its full-body support works well for reading, lounging by the pool, or relaxing and talking with friends. What type of chaise lounge do you need for your backyard?

More About the Chaise Lounge

Interestingly, the chaise lounge is one of the oldest furniture designs known. Images of ancient Egyptians reclining on them have been found by archeologists. The modern chaise lounge became popular in France around the 16th century. Artisans designed them to allow the French nobility to rest without having to go to their bedrooms. Understandably, chaise lounges quickly became a symbol of social status, and only the rarest and most expensive materials were used to create them. Even today, a chaise lounge can feel like a luxurious item in a modern home, especially when used as part of outdoor décor. A reclining chaise lounge for the backyard or patio will typically be lower to the ground than indoor chaises. They often sit lower than sofas or even outdoor benches.

What to Look for in an Outdoor Chaise Lounge

The first thing to consider when choosing a chaise lounge is its durability. It should withstand the elements it will be exposed to, whether it's year-round outdoor weather or frequent use.


When choosing an outdoor chaise lounge, it's essential to consider its total size. Chaise lounges may take up more space than other seating options so it's necessary to measure the dimensions when it's fully reclined. This will help you determine the best way to position them within your space. At Paddy O’ Furniture, we offer a variety of chaise lounge sizes, with the biggest difference being between our cuddle chaise lounge and a regular chaise lounge. A cuddle chaise lounge is comparable to a chaise and a half, which ranges from 42-48 inches in total width. A single chaise lounge ranges from 25-33 inches in total width. 

The diagram below shows the difference in cushion size. 


An outdoor chaise lounge should be a blend of comfort and durability. At Paddy O', the frame's construction materials can include EcoLumber, woven wicker and sturdy aluminum. It's important to choose a chaise lounge that can withstand elements like hot sun, rain, and cold weather. Many chaise lounges have cushions in the back, seat, and under the legs. These cushions should also be able to withstand different weather conditions. Regardless of its appearance, a chaise lounge won't last long if it can't endure bad weather. That's why Paddy O’ Furniture invests time and research into creating designs that can withstand the elements. For example, the Bliss Cushion® we offer has fabric that is:

  • Waterproof
  • Stain-resistant
  • UV Tested
  • Easy to clean
  • Dust-proof
  • Anti-microbial

Bliss Cushions are also designed for comfort. The upper chamber shapes to the neck’s curve, the middle area is plush for maximum comfort, and the lower section offers firm lumbar support.
