Top In-Pool & Outdoor Furniture Considerations for Your New Oasis
by Cristi Oramas

There's nothing quite like having your own backyard oasis in the form of a luxurious swimming pool. A well-designed pool area can transform your backyard into a haven of relaxation and entertainment. But to truly make it a paradise, you'll need to consider the right in-pool furniture.

From comfortable loungers to practical accessories, choosing the right poolside elements can make all the difference in your outdoor experience. In this blog, we'll explore the top in-pool furniture considerations for your new oasis.

1. Comfort is King: High-Quality Pool Loungers and Floats

When it comes to in-pool furniture, comfort is paramount. After all, who wouldn't want to bask in the sun while floating on a cloud of relaxation? Investing in high-quality loungers and floats should be at the top of your list. Look for loungers that are durable, weather-resistant, and can withstand the harsh pool chemicals.

For unwinding by the pool, think about choices such as a padded chaise lounge or an outdoor daybed that enable you to lie down and bask in the sunlight. The Faz Sun Chaise Lounger is the perfect example. Sleek and stylish, its sharp angular lines blend comfort and art to create the perfect poolside retreat.

Don't forget about pool floats either - they're not just for kids! Grab a luxurious pool pillow or pool hammock from the Laze collection by Ledge Lounger to drift around the pool effortlessly. With many stunning patterns available, there’s no question you’ll find the perfect one to match your style preference.

2. Materials Matter: Opt for Pool-Ready Furniture

Pools are fun, but they can also be harsh environments for furniture. Chlorine, sun exposure, and constant water exposure can cause wear and tear on certain materials. When choosing in-pool furniture, opt for pool-ready materials that can withstand these conditions.

For instance, the Kai Shelf Lounger. These classic in-pool loungers, made of highly durable, medium-density polyethylene, have a UV 20+ rating. This type of plastic makes them long-lasting and perfect for chlorine and salt-water pools alike! Even better, they’re made right here in the USA.

Other popular choices are weather-resistant wicker and corrosion-resistant stainless steel for outdoor furniture. Investing in furniture designed specifically for in-pool use ensures that your pieces will look good and last for years to come.

3. Versatility: Modular and Multi-Functional Pieces

A well-designed oasis should be versatile and cater to various needs. Look for modular furniture pieces that can be rearranged to fit different layouts and purposes. Modular sectionals let you make various seating arrangements, perfect for hosting pool parties or small get-togethers.

Additionally, multi-functional pieces can add value to your oasis. For instance, consider a storage bench or ottoman that doubles as seating and provides a convenient place to stow away pool toys or accessories. Or an in-pool umbrella stand that doubles as a cooler like the one in the Autograph collection.

You can protect yourself from the sun and keep your favorite ice-cold drinks close by all day long! Versatile in-pool furniture not only maximizes your space but also enhances the overall functionality of your oasis.

4. Shade Solutions: Umbrellas and Canopies

While soaking up the sun can be delightful, too much exposure can be harmful to your skin. To ensure that your poolside experience is both enjoyable and safe, incorporate shade solutions to protect you and your loved ones during those sunny days. From large cantilever umbrellas to smaller, resort-style umbrellas, they will provide the perfect balance between sunshine and shade.

When selecting shade options, consider the ease of use and durability. There are many umbrellas with tilting or rotating features to adjust their position throughout the day. High-quality, weather-resistant materials will ensure that your pool umbrellas can withstand the elements and provide protection season after season. Now you can elevate the style of your outdoor space with resort umbrellas at home!

5. Accessorize with Style: Drink Caddies, Pillows, and Weather-Resistant Outdoor Games

Don't forget about the smaller details that can elevate the overall look and feel of your oasis. A unique pool caddy like the AquaBar not only keeps your favorite drinks and snacks cool and easily accessible, but you and your guests will love how fun it is. With the option to add a remote-control motor, you’ll impress everyone at your next pool party!

Outdoor pillows in vibrant colors and patterns can brighten up your in-pool and poolside furniture and add a pop of personality to your oasis. Not to mention, they add an additional element of comfort that you’ll appreciate on those long days. Choose pillows with removable, water-resistant covers for easy maintenance and care.

Other poolside accessories you should consider are durable outdoor games. Fun shouldn’t stop outside of the pool. Adding a stylish, high-quality game like the Ledge Lounger Ping Pong Table or Ring Toss will keep you and your guests entertained and having fun all day long. Their durable construction means you’ll be enjoying them for years to come.

6. Guilt-Free Furniture Options: Sustainability and Eco-Friendly Choices

As we become more environmentally conscious, incorporating sustainability into our outdoor spaces is becoming increasingly important. When selecting in-pool furniture, consider eco-friendly options that are made from recycled or sustainable materials. Furniture crafted from reclaimed wood or recycled plastic not only reduces environmental impact but can also be durable and stylish.
