Buying a garden armchair: What to consider
A garden armchair that is uncomfortable or can no longer be used after the first rain shower? No thank you. When buying your armchair, pay attention to a few basic things and you are guaranteed to enjoy it for a long time.
Weatherproof garden armchairs
Rain, snow or sunshine – outdoor furniture is exposed to a wide variety of weather conditions and therefore has to be able to withstand a lot. When choosing your garden armchair, you should therefore check its weather resistance. Garden chairs made of high-quality materials such as polyrattan or our SunbrellaTM fabric are particularly suitable for outdoor use.
Weatherproof materials have several advantages: They help keep your armchair in good shape for a long time and at the same time save you the trouble of carrying it back and forth. If on of those summer thunderstorms comes up, you don't have to bring your garden furniture inside, you can leave it outside without worrying.
Easy-care garden armchairs
Since garden armchairs are usually outside all year round, they are quite exposed to dirt. So you don't have to spend your free time cleaning outdoor furniture, you should choose low-maintenance materials. You are considering garden chairs made of rattan? Then it's best to opt for the plastic version made of polyrattan.
Even our garden lounges made of SunbrellaTM material or aluminium do not require any extensive maintenance. And if it does get a bit dirty, wiping it off with a damp sponge and a little soap is usually all it takes.
Comfortable garden armchairs
You have found a garden armchair that is weatherproof and easy to care for? Congratulations, you have already checked two of three important criteria. Finally, of course, you should not forget that your outdoor chair should also be comfortable. After all, you will be spending several hours in it – reading, sunbathing or relaxing.
It is therefore important that the chair has soft upholstery. Are you a real bookworm? Then we recommend a model with armrests, so you can sit with comfortable support. The backrest should also be at a comfortable height for you. So you can settle into your armchair comfortably and relax!

Which material for your garden armchair?
As we have already seen, the material of your garden armchair plays an important role. It will determine how well your chair can handle different weather conditions and how much care it will need. But not only functionality matters, optics and design should be right, too. You can't go wrong with any of the following materials!
Rattan garden armchair
Our hand-wovengarden armchairs made of polyrattan are an absolute classic. The material boasts a natural look and has several advantages over real rattan:
Bad weather cannot harm your garden chair. Temperature fluctuations are not a problem, and even strong UV radiation does not damage the surface. That makes our woven outdoor armchairs durable. In addition, polyrattan is a very light material. That means you can easily move your garden furniture at any time.
Garden armchair made of SunbrellaTMmaterial
The outdoor furniture made from our unique Sunbrella TMmaterial offers several advantages and is:
- quick drying
Because it is filled with Quick Dry Foam, the water is not absorbed – as with conventional foam – but simply goes right through. Your armchair will be completely dry and ready for use just 20 minutes after a rain shower.
In addition, the soft upholstery provides a comfy seating. Thanks to the dirt-repellent surface, the garden furniture is easy to care for, and the robust frame made of rustproof aluminium guarantees stability.
Accessories for your garden armchair
What makes your garden armchair extra cozy? Exactly: the right accessories. How about a few decorative lounge cushions as eye-catchers? If necessary, they can be stowed away in a cushion box.
To create more seating options, you can add a garden sofa or a sunbed to your outdoor area. This way you have enough space for friends and family. A stylish stool with a glass top can serve as a shelf for drinks, snacks or books.
