Pool Deck PerfectionJuly 7, 2021
When you’re building your dream pool deck, several key factors need to be in place to ensure a long, hot summer of fun in the sun. To sit elegantly alongside your pool design of choice, assemble a beautiful setting of outdoor furniture that reflects the mood you want your outdoor space to convey – be that Balinese paradise, French Riviera retreat, or Yucatán hideaway.
At Teak Warehouse, we have an amazing array of stunning outdoor loungers, deck chairs, and daybeds on which to relax and reset after a dip, all offering different moods, silhouettes, and materials for you to be able to customize your outdoor living area in the style you see fit. And if you’re dream pool deck is built with entertaining in mind, our sectionals are just the ticket for gathering al fresco with family and friends.
Whether you’re curating a larger area, or need a simple, chic piece to make the most of your layout, we’re sure we can find the right welcoming solution for you.
The Sun Lounger
Sun loungers are the key to creating a great holiday destination at home, and an essential for every pool deck. We are all spending a lot more time closer to home these days, and for the ultimate in staycation style, you can’t beat a hotel-worthy pool loungers in which to soak up the rays in style. Whether your poolside is Palm Springs hot or coastal cool, a sun lounger is a summertime indulgence we can all make room for, no matter the size of your poolside space.
A sun lounger is also a must-have piece of outdoor furniture that anyone can enjoy. It’s where you can while away hours reading as you soak up the sun, or take your remote working situation outdoors with the help of your laptop, a shady spot, and the perfect lounger to suit. And if lockdown has inspired you to spend more time by the pool, then a relaxing lounger is the investment you’ll be happy you made even after the world at large returns to normal.
From contemporary pool loungers fit for a five-star resort to quirky designs spotted poolside at a hip boutique hotel, sun loungers are the ideal way to transport yourself to a holiday location. Choosing the right sun lounger for you shouldn’t just be about your garden or patio’s measurements either. You’ll need to think about positioning to catch the best of those much-needed rays and take some time to consider lifestyle, too. Do you want an adjustable lounger you can prop up, allowing you to get stuck into a magazine before laying it flat for a nap? Or would you be content with a structured style that’s designed for ultimate comfort, but less for an all-over tan?
Most loungers are designed for solitude and come as single day beds, but of course, you can pair them up to suit your space. We love the Kuba Sun Lounger (above) for its sense of space when lounging solo, while the Teak Double Sun Lounger is the perfect size for two. Just add a side table, ice bucket, and chilled bottle of rosé.
We love a daybed or two scattered around a pool, giving a resort feel to any outdoor space. Purpose-built for lounging in laidback style, the Cabo Teak Daybed (left) offers simple, chic lines and plenty of space to just chill – either alone or with a friend. Like the other pieces in the Cabo teak deep seating collection, there is a lot of room to relax on the seating surface, whether your aim is to enjoy a warm day laying out in the sun or curl up on a chilly fall evening with a glass of wine in hand.
The Cabo collection’s low-profile frame structure also means that this daybed doesn’t detract from the view of the horizon, so you can rest easy and take in your surroundings as you snooze the day away. The substantial piece’s generous size and mellow feel mean it will work just fine for a smaller patio, or combine it with the rest of its collection to form a unique relaxation spot big enough for the whole team to stretch out and enjoy the outdoors.
If you’re looking for the pinnacle of all things stylish and luxurious when it comes to your outdoor daybed needs, the Coast Aluminum Daybed in white is a true statement piece. A core member of the sleek and sophisticated Coast Collection, the Coast Aluminum Daybed is a large open-ended sofa, a modern chaise, and most of all? Supremely cool, calm, and contemporary.
Coast Aluminum Daybed’s sophisticated style comes from its low, sleek framework and thick, boxy cushions that keep you comfy all year round. The design enables it to be used in both urban spaces as well as more traditional areas because the look is classic luxury at its best. A sectional piece that really is incredibly versatile, it works brilliantly as a standalone daybed or as part of a larger set.
Effortlessly cool and unabashedly modern, the Mykonos Outdoor Loveseat Sectional with Right Arm offers a daybed vibe, chaise style, and a lifetime of durability. Crafted from top of the line powder-coated aluminum in dramatic panels, its modern deep seating has the added bonus of free Sunbrella® cushions, keeping our customers in high-quality comfort. This is the perfect piece for a small area where you need more seating room, or join it together with the rest of the Mykonos family for an expansive, lavish set. The relaxed luxury of Mykonos modern outdoor sectional comes with an element of luxe comfort that’ll see you never wanting to leave your perch.
The deck chair
With an almost vintage style that we can’t help but love, the Classic Teak Steamer Chair (right) is the ultimate in classic teak deck chairs. Bringing a sense of time-honored tradition to your poolside perch, we recommend that you add a classic teak side table such as the Milano Side Table (and perhaps a martini) for a true Old Hollywood glamor vibe.
With a style that recalls a bygone era but built to withstand the wear and tear of modern life, our teak steamers are able to recline to three positions and have extra-wide seating for more comfort. They also conveniently fold for more compact storage spaces, and as they are made from A-Grade teak, you can rest assured that you are buying the best quality wood for outdoors. Filled with natural oil and rubber, A-Grade Teak stays stronger for longer while still maintaining a beautiful quality that you will love for a lifetime.
As extensions of your home, outdoor living areas make for warm-weather spots for gathering and relaxing with friends and family while also serving as a private oasis for you to quietly relax away the tensions of the everyday. Modern outdoor sectional furniture offers the options to fit individual pieces together like a puzzle, and the layout of your poolside furniture should be functional and reflective of your sense of style.
A long, straight seating arrangement is perfect for lining a pool deck, ensuring it is a welcoming and whimsical space that remains highly functional for lounging and entertaining. Pool decks tend to be spacious so go big. Don’t be afraid to bring in sizeable pieces from cozy chaises for lounging in the hot sun, to hefty tables for long alfresco gatherings. Layout poolside furniture pieces in conversation sets, L-shaped configurations, or straight down the pool deck.
We love the versatility of the Coast Teak Outdoor Deep Seating Collection (above), which allows you to make it as grand or small as your outdoor space will allow. The wide cushions and seat depth are sublimely comfortable and perfect for lounging on your pool deck. The Coast Teak Collection features the Coast Sectional Center, Coast Corner, Left and Right Daybeds, Coast Chaise Lounge Chair, Outdoor Ottoman and Coffee Table. To create a great lounging space, place a Kingston Cantilever Umbrella next to the arm of your Daybed and two Coast Chairs and voila! A dynamic, welcoming space for you to host friends, or just enjoy the serenity of your own private retreat.
