10 Comfy, (Mostly) Colorful Outdoor Lounge Chairs for Under $100

Summer is almost here and that means one thing: it’s time to get outside. From heading out to your favorite hiking spot to picnicking with friends and family, there’s nothing better than enjoying some nice weather after a dreary winter. For those lucky enough to have an outdoor space of their own to bask in, it’s also time to break out (or update) your setup. The easiest way to start? With a good lounge chair, of course! A cute and comfy lounge chair can turn a sliver of yard space into an outdoor oasis in no time. If you have room for one (or more), my only question is, what are you waiting for? From colorful woven loungers to classic folding styles that are perfect for small spaces, we rounded up 10 of the comfiest outdoor lounge chairs that won’t break the bank — they’re all under $100! Even better, some of these are portable and can be taken on the road for a day at the beach, park, or wherever else you end up. So I say again, what are you waiting for?

Lemieux et Cie Has Launched an Eco-Minded, Stylish Outdoor Textile Collection

Lemieux et Cie Has Launched an Eco-Minded, Stylish Outdoor Textile Collection

We independently select these products—if you buy from one of our links, we may earn a commission.

It’s time to ready your patio, yard, or sliver of outside space for outdoor entertaining season, and the options these days for stylish, durable furniture and furnishings abound. If you’re a fan of Christiane Lemieux’s artful aesthetic that references iconic European ateliers mixed with modern design touches and heirloom materials, then you’re in for an outdoor treat. On the heels of her brand’s direct-to-customer website launch earlier this month, Lemieux’s Lemieux et Cie has debuted an outdoor textile collection this week, and it’ll bring a dose of sophisticated color and graphic pattern to your outdoor oasis — no matter how big or small.  

The collection, titled “Fragmented Materiality,” draws inspiration from painted artwork and historical fragments Lemieux has found in her travels. “We’ve heard from our designers and clients that they want to extend considered design and decor to their outside spaces,” says Lemieux. “Taking this into account, the pieces in the Fragmented Materiality collection combine design history, texture, and color to create beautifully curated entertaining or lounging spaces.”   

No stranger to sustainability practices in textile creation, Lemieux is following an on-demand, waterless digital printing manufacturing model for this collection and has considered environmental footprint at all aspects of the production cycle.  “We believe that outdoor products should also be good for the outdoors,” says Lemieux. That means pillows and rugs are printed only when they’re ordered, so inventory isn’t created to just sit on shelves, and there’s little waste involved. The designs are also available in custom colors, and fabric can be ordered by the yard for larger, bespoke projects.

Prices start at $55 for some styles of pillows, and range up to $998 for rugs. The collection is available at Lemieux et Cie right now, and a portion of the sales will be donated directly to The Surfrider Foundation to benefit the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches.

Bobby Berk Just Launched a Gorgeous Collection With One of Our Favorite Outdoor Furniture Brands

Outdoor entertaining season is upon us, and I for one have been dreaming about a dinner party under the stars for the better part of a year. I’m talking a glowing-bistro-lights, family-style-eats, Nancy Meyers type of dinner party. The only problem? I will have absolutely zero places to seat my guests.

You see, durable (and stylish) outdoor dining sets are kind of hard to come by. I live in New York, so I need something that’s easy to store for the winter season or a design that can hold its own against the elements (or both, honestly). I’ve long been a fan of Outer’s attention to detail and quality, and when they launched their aluminum seating collection earlier this year, I thought to myself, “Hmm, if only that came as a dining table.” Well, here we are — I’m pretty sure they read my mind.

For those not in the know, Outer is an AAPI-founded brand that focuses on creating durable, sustainable, and design-forward pieces that elevate even the most average backyard space into something that’s truly resort-worthy. Many of their collections launch to rabid fanfare, often selling out within 48 hours, and I’m positive their latest (and first!) dining collection will be no different. The best part? It’s designed in collaboration with one of our favorite pros, designer Bobby Berk from “Queer Eye.”

Bobby worked with Outer to design a versatile dining collection that is just as beautiful as anything made for indoors, but the pieces are able to hold their own against rain, sun, and more, all with Outer’s signature stylish flair, of course. The collab is centered on two of the most durable materials out there — teak and aluminum — and boasts super-smart features that add to its durability and flexibility. Let’s dive into the details, shall we?

The collection touts two nearly identical teak and aluminum dining tables: one sized for six people and the other with hidden leaves that allows it to fit up to twelve dinners. The black metal framing is made from 100 percent recyclable powder-coated aluminum that is temperature controlled to deflect sunlight and stay cool under even the hottest conditions. The teak is sourced from FSC certified fields in Central Java, where three the company plants three trees for each one harvested. Each table comes with the brand’s waterproof OuterShell cover that spreads easily overtop and saves you from one of the most annoying aspects of outdoor dining: dirty elbows and hands from grody tables (thank you, Outer!).

And because what good is a table without chairs, Outer’s new director-style dining chairs are the perfect complement. Each one is made from teak and metal and covered with durable all-weather fabric that repels water, resists mildew, and stands up to the sun, heat, and rain without fading. You can buy the chairs as a duo or as a set of six alongside a dining table for a $750 discount (nice!). One thing’s for sure: You’re going to want to move fast on this stylish collection, because if Outer’s previous launches are any indication, this outdoor dining set won’t be in stock for long.

Imagine this: It’s a midsummer Saturday afternoon, you’re ready for another blissful evening in the backyard, grilling, and dining outdoors. Only thing is, you’ve already had your fair share of burgers and hot dogs for the season and you want to change up the weekly dinner rotation. Well, Solo Stove is here to solve this outdoor dinner debacle for you. Enter: the newly launched Pi Pizza Oven.

We’re big fans of Solo Stove for their smokeless outdoor fire pits, grills, and camp stoves. Now we have another reason to rave over the fire-forward brand, making entertaining outdoors safer, easy, and filled with pizza! We couldn’t be more excited about their new Outdoor Pizza Oven launching today, Pi Day! Plus, it’s a whopping $200 dollars off, but not for long!

The Pi Pizza Oven has some serious noteworthy details that make investing in this specialized oven worth every penny. The design speaks volumes. The ceramic insulation and wall-to-wall pizza stone ensure an even cook, for a perfect pie in just two minutes. Similar to a gas-powered grill, the Pi Pizza Oven is fueled by propane, making it easy to use for those of us who have never made a pizza from scratch in our lives! And for those who have been making dough for years, the oven makes sharing your delicious creations faster, safer, and easier.

Solo Stove knows their outdoor cookware (all on sale right now!). If the Pi Pizza Oven is anything like their highly reviewed communal grill, it’s sure to be a must-have for any camping excursion or backyard cookout. The standalone pizza oven’s heat distribution incorporates the same smokeless cooking experience backpackers love about Solo Stove’s mini fire pits. It’s compact enough to bring to your neighbor’s BBQ, adding to the savory fun of gathering for a meal outside.

At this limited-time price point, it’s hard to turn down the crispy, cheesy pies you’ll be cranking out of this bad boy. There are no limits with the blank canvas of a pizza crust, and this approachable pizza oven is sure to let your pizza dreams become reality.
