The Best Poolside Patio Furniture

Posted by Fortunoff Backyard Store

Stay cool. Stay comfortable.

Creating a stunning poolside oasis begins with choosing the perfect patio furniture. Fortunoff Backyard Store, America's largest outdoor furniture provider with over 100 years of experience, offers an impressive range of poolside patio furniture that combines style, durability, and comfort just in time for summer.

Whether you prefer relaxing loungers, chic chaise lounges, or elegant dining sets, we have everything you need to transform your backyard into a relaxing escape. Are you ready to dive into the season's best offerings? Here are our picks for the best poolside patio furniture:

The Best Poolside Materials:

Featuring Grand Banks Collection

When spending a day by the pool, you want to select materials that will keep you cool and dry. Teak, sling, and our polymer outdoor furniture sets do just that. Our teak outdoor furniture sets are water resistant and don’t conduct as much heat as our cast aluminum, wrought iron, aluminum, and resin wicker products, so the only burn you have to worry about is coming from the sun's rays. Plus, our teak outdoor furniture collections feature a slatted construction in the chair seats and backs. These slats allow air to pass through and keep you comfortable on those warm days.

Our outdoor sling furniture works similarly, but you’ll find our quick-drying mesh material instead of wooden slats. Sling is the perfect material for people who enjoy warming themselves in the sun after a quick dip in the pool because the acrylic fiber mesh doesn’t absorb water, allowing it to dry quickly and entirely ignore chlorine. In many of our sling patio furniture collections, we use Sunbrella® sling material. So, not only will the sling keep you cool, the material is resistant to fading, mold, mildew, and bleach cleanable.

Featuring Cape Coral Collection

For the best of both worlds, explore our Sedona Collection. It pairs our sling material with a teak frame for the perfect poolside outdoor furniture collection, complete with a five-year limited warranty to ensure it's around to help you soak up the sun for years to come.

However, suppose you’re looking for a hardier material or have a saltwater pool, In that case, you can’t go wrong with polymer outdoor furniture. Our polymer patio collections are commercial and marine grade and have a similar slat-back construction to our teak products. But unlike teak and sling, polymer furniture warranties last up to 15 years. Their frames also resist fading and chlorine, and while they do tend to conduct more heat than teak or sling, it’s nothing a well-placed outdoor umbrella can’t fix. Before we dive into poolside accessories, let’s talk about what we would place under that umbrella first.

The Best Poolside Furniture:

Every space you use for relaxing should be comfortable. Your backyard is no different, and for poolside relaxing, we’re big fans of the chaise lounge. All of our chaises are fully adjustable and contoured for comfort, which means their shape follows the natural curvature of the human body.


We suggest opting for a chaise in one of the previously mentioned materials, but we carry a variety of chaise lounge styles in other materials and different heights. Some chaises sit higher off the ground than others, but it’s a personal choice as to which you prefer. You can test each style in a Fortunoff Backyard Store showroom near you. We always have chaise lounges in stock and in some cases, ready for you to take home that same day.

Speaking of lounging, a chaise may be a classic poolside option, but a daybed is a luxurious choice. Our San Lucas Daybed is a customer and poolside favorite. It comes with Sunbrella® outdoor cushions for optimal comfort and outdoor longevity, a canopy for sun protection, and it’s configurable! Two curved and cushioned bench seats wrap around a cushioned ottoman and connect with the shaded loveseat to create the perfect lounge experience. You can sit up, lie down, spread out, and relax until the sun goes down. For those who prefer a more upright lounge experience, we have ledge loungers and Adirondack chairs.

Featuring Modern Collection


Like chaise lounges, Adirondack chairs are the perfect water-adjacent outdoor furniture item. They are the embodiment of polymer's durability without sacrificing comfort. We love them for their wide armrests, ideal for resting snacks or drinks on, and their color varieties. Another colorful and upright poolside seat is our ledge lounger. Ledge loungers are designed to be placed directly poolside, so you can dip your legs into the water while feeling supported.

Think of them like those pack-and-go bleacher chairs but for the pool. You can even use our ledge loungers in the water if you want to swim around. They’re made of the same material as our pool floats, so trust you’ll stay buoyant for years with this purchase.

But we can't mention amphibious patio furniture and neglect our Kai Collection. These polymer chaises and the accompanying floating end table are made for your pool shelf, but they also work poolside. Kai chaise lounges come with a removable cushion, built-in drink holders, and a phone holder. It’s one of the most popular collections this season, so if this is how you see yourself relaxing this summer, we won’t delay.

The Best Poolside Outdoor Accessories:

We love sun protection, so outdoor umbrellas are the best poolside accessory you can invest in for your health and comfort. At Fortunoff Backyard Store, you have a lot of umbrellas to choose from. You can shop by color, height, and even style. We like cantilever umbrellas for large spaces that need a lot of shade, but a market umbrella with a mobile base can work in a pinch. Either way, you can’t lose if you’re relaxing in the shade.

If you’re hanging poolside, you’re bringing a towel with you. Now, you can always hang that towel over your chair, but no one wants to lay out on a wet towel. For those moments, we suggest our Milan towel rack. It’ll let those moist towels dry far away from your body while you catch some rays, and it will with style. We love our Milan towel rack’s base details and simplistic shape. Plus, the cast aluminum construction will ensure your towel will be nice and toasty when you are ready to use it.

And when you’re ready to get back into the water after drying off, don’t forget your floaties! From pool float lounges to kickboards and noodles, we have everything you need to stay cool in and out of the water. Our pool floats come in seven colors and are softer than our competitors’. You will be just as comfortable relaxing in your pool as in our outdoor patio furniture.
