The best garden chairs

Amazon Basics Chicreat Stiliac Generica Keter Kidkraft Outsunny

Amazon Basics

As often happens, especially in a certain category of products, the articles made from the Amazon Basics brand they prove to be excellent and with a very good quality / price ratio. This is the case of this garden deckchair which, in our opinion, deserves to be included in our dedicated list because it has everything you need to relax and enjoy excellent comfort. Available in various colors, this model has been designed to give you the feeling of weightlessness and has a powder-coated steel frame that makes it resistant and at the same time light to carry. It also includes a padded headrest and contoured armrests and supports a weight of 136kg.



Similar to the previous model, the Chicreat garden deck chair it is one of the most comfortable and, unlike the others, it is offered in a set of 2 at a very competitive price. Perfect in the garden, on the terrace or on the balcony, this solution boasts a 7-angle adjustable backrest and an aluminum structure with padding, proposed in a beautiful combination of gray and silver. Thanks to the excellent materials, these deckchairs will be resistant to water and UV rays and, consequently, their coating will remain intact for a long time.



Available in many colors, the garden deck chair produced by Stiliac is another model to be considered by those who want to have a solution capable of guaranteeing excellent comfort. Just like the previous model, it has been designed so that you can lift your feet higher than your head and obtain a “zero gravity” effect, for the benefit of relaxation typical of professional beach solutions. The maximum capacity reported by the manufacturer is 110kg, while the structure boasts materials such as steel and breathable textilene fabric.



If you like wood, this garden deckchair is the one for you! Unlike the previous models, it has a very soft and comfortable cushion padded with foam, washable and replaceable with numerous other cushions of multiple colors (available separately). The wooden structure was designed to be reclining in 3 positions, adapting to both indoor and outdoor use. In addition, it is easy to fold up, which makes it easy to carry and space-saving when not in use.



Another garden chair which adapts to multiple uses is the model made by Keter. Its peculiarity is the beautiful wicker texture, which makes it elegant and with a neutral tone, and therefore able to adapt to any environment. Although the structure may seem not foldable, it will actually allow you to reduce the bulk when you want to put it aside, and you will be able to choose 4 settings with which to enjoy excellent relaxation. Furthermore, it is maintenance free, since its materials are resistant to atmospheric agents.



If you are looking for a dedicated solution to the little ones, you will be happy to know that it exists and is made by Kidkraft. Unlike the other models, in this case it will not be possible to adjust it in different inclinations, but we believe that this lack is not important if we consider that it is intended exclusively for children. The overall quality, on the other hand, is excellent and the three-sided canopy and mesh window will allow your little ones to shelter from the sun. Included in the price, you will find 2 lined cushions and 2 glass holders, as well as assembly instructions, which will allow even the less experienced to assemble it in a few minutes.



We couldn't close the list of the best garden loungers without mentioning an Outsunny model, a leading brand in gardening equipment. This solution is undoubtedly the most desired, but it has a much higher cost than the other models. It is ideal for those who want to have, in addition to comfort, a deckchair that can make an aesthetic difference. The structure, in fact, boasts a first-class workmanship and includes a sun canopy resistant to sunlight and bad weather. Being double and supported by a high quality structure, the base can easily support 2 people. We are faced not with a simple garden deckchair, but with a piece of furniture that combines design with functionality.


How to choose the garden lounger

As you might imagine, the factors that determine whether a garden deckchair is good or not focus almost exclusively on comfort, so it's no surprise that the elements to consider are similar to those we reported in our recent guide dedicated to the best garden hammocks. However, there are some features that should not be missing if you want to get maximum comfort and they are the following:

Foldable structure

Since we are talking about garden chairs, check if a certain model has or does not have a folding structure is important, since the latter will help you move it from one place to another quickly and easily, as well as having the advantage of taking up little space when you need to put it aside . Possibly, this structure should be made of materials such as steel or wood which, in addition to making the product resistant, absorb heat better than a plastic solution. If the deckchair will be placed in a fixed position, then you may not even consider folding models, opting for a more bulky and heavier structure, which results in a more resistant product. However, we reiterate that the bulky models will prove to be excellent only if you intend to place them in the immediate vicinity of your home, since they would be too difficult to move from one place to another.


Although any garden deck chair allows you to adjust the backrest, it is right to consider the model that offers the greatest possible angle, so that you can easily find the position that is most comfortable for you. Furthermore, it would be preferable for the deckchair to have the possibility of adjusting the inclination also in the front part, giving you the opportunity to place your feet at different heights.

Armrests and more

Although they are not essential , the armrests have the potential to increase the comfort of a garden deckchair, especially in models whose shape tends to resemble a chair. This also applies to headrests and footrests, which should not be missing in the most expensive and refined solutions.

Maximum capacity

Finally, there is the maximum weight that the structure can support. Knowing what the maximum load of the model you are about to buy is is essential, in order to avoid damaging the deckchair. In this regard, our advice is to take your weight into account and evaluate a model that supports a slightly higher weight, although the higher the better, of course. However, most models are able to safely carry over 100kg.


Although materials tend to affect the stability and strength of a product, in the case of garden chairs also have a good impact on comfort. In fact, depending on the intended use, the deckchair offers different comforts for the same materials and the most important factor is due to transpiration. For example, if you intend to use the deckchair to sunbathe on the terrace or get a few hours of sleep, plastic models are not recommended, as they do not favor perspiration, which then indirectly impacts comfort. Other materials, such as wood, are much more suitable for afternoon naps, especially when accompanied by pillows or padded surfaces. In summary, here are the main characteristics of each one:

Wooden deck chairs: the wooden models are among the most sought after, thanks to their beauty and variety of style. They can be designed in pallets, with thin rods or with whole wood. Strength depends largely on the quality of the wood and maintenance, as they need to be painted regularly, especially if they are exposed to the sun, wind and rain for a long time.

Plastic deckchairs: these are also popular and we usually find them around swimming pools. The design and functions have reached a standard nowadays, but they differ in countless styles. In addition, the material plays an important role, since there are different types of plastics, which determine the strength of the product. Although the plastic deckchairs do not require any kind of maintenance, the advice is not to leave them exposed for too long to high and low temperatures.

Aluminum deckchairs: these can be made of simple aluminum, reinforced aluminum, galvanized or in steel. The latter variant is the most recommended, as well as the most expensive, and is characterized by its resistance and lightness.

How to clean the garden deckchair

Although some deck cloths are washable in the washing machine, it is recommended to manually clean the dirty part, dabbing the canvas with a liquid laundry detergent and working it with a soft brush or cloth. Then let the canvas rest for about 15 minutes and add 1/8 teaspoon of detergent diluted in a liter of warm water and clean the stains with a cloth.
