Amazing Variations in Our 5 Favorite Summer Loungers

Do you think that all outdoor furniture has to be beige and neutral? Think again.

Do you think that all outdoor furniture has to match? Think again.

Our approach to outdoor furniture is as eclectic as furnishing an indoor space, so you'll see that we're not loving matchy-matchy looks outside. There's no reason that you can't pick interesting pieces that go well together, e.g., an umbrella table and outdoor chairs to pull around the table from a different set. Loungers are especially divergent in their styling, and many designers have given them imaginative twists that will lend interest and eye appeal to your furniture groupings. Great for reading, sunning, snacking, and relaxing, a lounger or two - even more around a large pool, patio, or lanai - will give you many options. We also love how loungers can be moved around to escape the sun ... or put users directly in line with the sun's rays.

For summer decorating, consider these chic loungers, like Leo Kempf's creation made from birch and recycled tires (top photo). Click on each photo for more information.
