Comparing Chaise Lounges

Originally Published on January 10, 2019. Last Updated on May 13, 2024.

Our chaise lounges make it easy to take it easy, adjusting to sit upright, read reclined, or nap flat. All styles share a common denominator (highly durable and weather-resistant), but each collection is unique. Let’s take a deeper dive into what sets them apart and how they compare.

  PRO TIP:  
If you like to rest your drink or an elbow while you read, opt for a chaise with armrests. Ready to roll? Styles with built-in wheels let you chase the sun or seek some shade. For something that’s a breeze to get in and out of, look to armless designs.

  1. Looking for a foot stool Do ya’ll make anything like that? Sure would be nice to put my feet up while sitting in my adirondak chair

      1. Hi, I was wondering if I can get a catalog mail to me. I’m interested and buying some lounges and a bar table with four chairs. My address is 30825 Ortega Ln, Big Pine Key FL 33043.

  2. Good morning,

    Please inform if the Nautical Chaise and Captain Chaise are available with stainless steel or white hardware for the bar used to adjust the backrest? In some of your pictures it appears to be black. What is the material of the bar? I’m interested in white chaises and do not like the look of a black bar.

    Is the fabric on your umbrellas machine washable?

    Thank you,

    1. Hi Mary,

      That’s a wonderful question! The adjustable bar will be aluminum that is powder coated to be white, black or tan depending on the color option you select for the chaise lounge chair. A white chaise will be paired with a what support bar to allow for a cohesive look. Not all of our cushions will allow for the cover to be removed, so I have included out cleaning recommendations for our fabrics below.

      Thank you for reaching out!

  3. With respect to the chaises with armrests…do any of them have the option to fold down completely? Especially when in the flat position? That is ideal. Thanks

    1. Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for asking!

      We don’t have a chaise model that allows the armrests to fold or be moved as they’re in a fixed position. We appreciate the great idea though! We’ll share it with our design team.

      Have a fantastic day!

    1. Hi Sonya,

      Thanks for reaching out!

      All of our chaise lounges will lay flat (180 degrees) to keep you comfortable on your stomach.

      Have a fantastic day!

  4. Hello, I’m trying to find all the differences between the Nautical and Captain’s chaise. It appears that the size is an inch bigger on the Captain’s chaise, but it’s not clear why that would account for an almost 100% price difference.

    1. Hello Jim,

      The main difference in this price difference between the Nautical and Captain Chaise Loungers is the amount of material used in both collections and the labour used to manufacture each model. The Captain Chaise Lounge is made with a thicker lumber chassis than the Nautical, thus making it heavier and more suited to a high traffic commercial application.

      I hope this information is helpful.

      Thank you!

    1. Hello Rick,

      Our Chaise Loungers are weight tested and approved according to ASTM standards up to a weight capacity of 400lbs.

      Thank you for your question!

  5. I’m looking for a chaise lounges that won’t rust. Are there specific styles of your chaise lounges that don’t have metal parts that would rust in the rain?

    1. Hi Debbie,

      The majority of the chaise lounge is going to be made of POLYWOOD lumber. The brace in the back assembly that adjusts the position of the chaise lounge will be aluminum. However, is it powder coated to protect it from the elements.

      The hardware used to build the lounge is made of 18-8 stainless steel hardware with an Allochrome 3200+™ finish and cosmetic coating. This makes our hardware marine grade quality.

      We appreciate you asking!

  6. Hi Polywood,
    I am shopping for several chaise lounges. I like the design of the Polywood Nautical and Signature models. The Signature model is more expensive. Is there a difference in the thickness of the Polywood lumber used in these two models?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Joe,

      Great question! There will be style differences as well as the thickness of the lumber used for each of the two models. Because of this, the models with more lumber will cost just a little bit more.

      Thanks for asking!

    1. Hello Bel,

      Since POLYWOOD furniture is all-weather, it does not require a cover. However, covering your furniture will make seasonal cleaning easier while also prolonging the life of your furniture. We recommend

      Best wishes,

  7. Do the POLYWOOD chaises need cushions in order to be comfortable? I’d like to be able to leave them outside on our dock without carting cushions outside/inside every time we visit our lake house.

    1. Hi, Reese! Many of our customers choose to use our chaise lounges without a cushion. You might also enjoy our Coastal Chaise with Wheels. The sling provides ultimate comfort! Thanks for asking, Brooke
