Best Outdoor Chairs 2018
Used to accompany a table or simply to seat people comfortably and with elegance, outdoor chairs are a main part of any patio’s furniture. Besides being handsome, comfortable and sturdy, outdoor chairs also need to be highly resilient to the elements in order to endure the elements.

We’ll start by taking a look at how they compare to each other and further below you can read in-depth reviews of each unit.

Outdoor Chair Reviews
Here you can read in-depth reviews of all the outdoor patio chairs shown in the table above. This will ensure that you know exactly what they have to offer and how they standout from one another, allowing you to buy outdoor chairs that are perfectly suited for your space and personal preference.
While the sets adapt to any use you want to give them, if you want outdoor table chairs (to couple with a dining table) then I highly recommend the Bellevue units – they’re 100% made for “table” use and perform perfectly. Now without further ado, let’s take a look!
GDF’s “Clementine” outdoor wicker chair set takes the concept of the popular wicker models and adds an extra layer of comfort coupled with a more classic design, featuring deep seating, cushioning and a handsome appearance. The construction quality stays on par with the competition – powder coated steel frames, good looking resin wicker, non-skid feet and resilient to the elements – while the much loved deep seats, complementary seat cushioning (which is also weatherproof) and curved high backs take it a step further and turn them into really comfortable patio chairs. Their design doesn’t allow them to be stacked but they’re lightweight enough to be easily moved and stored. Even though they’re regular sized, the seat is quite low so keep that in mind if you want to use them as dining chairs. The visual highlight continues to be the great wicker work which is great not only color and texture wise but also when it comes to the details – it completely covers the chairs (except for the feet, of course) and has no imperfections. They are very affordable and although these require some assembly, it’s super quick and easy to do. This set also comes with the standard 30 days of return period. If you like wicker but want a classier, comfier experience at a very affordable price then this is it.
The “Del Mar” outdoor wicker chairs are a simple but effective blend of contemporary design and minimalist construction, resulting in a couple of sleek looking and affordable beauties. This stunning garden chair set consists of 2 armchairs, both of which have powder coated steel frames that are covered with handsome multi-brown resin wicker. They’re very nicely finished, especially for the price, featuring great craftsmanship on both the design and wicker plus their curved backs, seats and armrests ensure a comfortable experience. Both the powder coated steel frame and faux wicker are weatherproof and durable, making them resilient to use and the elements and they have a stacking design, allowing you to easily store them. A feature I really appreciate is the non-skid feet which makes them safer for both your floors and yourself. They come fully assembled, saving you time, and have a 30 day return period. Sleek and inexpensive, the Del Mar outdoor chair set is a solid choice, especially if you love wicker.
The final entry on the list by GDF, the “Covington” set gives you 2 metal outdoor chairs and it’s popular due to its fairly priced combination of great looks, robust durability and classy design. From the beautiful bronze finish to the elegant patterns and curves, these chairs are stunning to look at plus their contoured design makes them just as comfortable as they’re good looking. The cast aluminum body is completely rustproof and durable while also being lightweight enough to carry around with ease. Both chairs feature non-skid feet to ensure your safety and to make sure they don’t scratch the ground either. Assembling them is a breeze and they come with 30 days of warranty. Versatile, elegant and durable, this set of metal patio chairs offers fantastic bang for the buck and complements any type of decor nicely.
The first 4 pack on the list, BCP delivers a set of classic wicker patio chairs all of which feature sturdy steel frames completely covered with high quality multi-brown resin wicker. They’ve also got an arms-free side-chair design which allows you to easily stack them for easy storage. The wicker craftsmanship is outstanding – no edge is left uncovered and no imperfections are to be seen – plus the high back’s slight curve coupled with the full, thick cushioning ensures a comfortable experience. The cushions themselves perfectly complement the color of the chairs while also being fade-proof, resistant to mildew and easy to clean. Whenever you sit on these you’ll instantly feel their incredible sturdiness, they’re strong enough to endure up to 440 lbs of weight each which is extremely impressive and lets you sit with full confidence that you’ll be safe. This outdoor chair set also comes fully assembled, sparing you the effort, and they’ve got a 60 day warranty to boot. A set of 4 this good at such an inexpensive price is a rarity so I definitely recommend it.
Taking what made the similar BCP set seen previously great and taking it up a notch, Atlantic Liberty delivers a superb outdoor wicker patio chair set. It offers beautiful simplicity and expert craftsmanship at an attractive price. Not only are they practical due to their stacking design but they’re also comfortable and stylish, featuring a versatile and good looking appearance that will nicely complement your patio. The frames are made of sturdy, rustproof aluminum which coupled with the synthetic wicker makes the chairs completely weatherproof. The included cushions are plump and their covers are made of quick-drying fabric which makes them perfect for the outdoors. Everything from the design to the fit and finish is beyond excellent and makes these chairs radiate luxury plus, to save you time and effort, they come fully assembled and backed with 1 year of warranty. Delivering a perfectly well-rounded experience at a very competitive price, these will easily hit the mark if you’re looking for the best outdoor wicker chairs you can get.
These swivel rockers are not only among my favorites but also some of the most comfortable outdoor chairs ever. From their incredibly elegant shape and beautiful colors to their sturdy construction and unmatched comfort, these chairs are pure class. This set includes 2 units, both of which feature a strong, rustproof aluminum frame that has been powder coated with an espresso finish to further improve their already fantastic durability and looks. The tan textile sling matches the frame perfectly and its quality is obvious not only when you look at it but whenever you use it plus their robust bodies can endure up to 250 lbs of weight each with ease. The wonderfully curved back is traditionally comfortable while also giving your head a place to rest and much appreciated lumbar support. All of this coupled with the smooth swivel rocking motion amounts to a wonderfully relaxing experience that screams quality. The chairs wouldn’t be complete without built-to-last construction and that’s exactly what they have and more – sturdy bodies, weatherproof materials, expertly finished detailing and top notch design. Assembling these comfy garden chairs is extremely simple and they come backed with 1 year of warranty. They’re a first class product that will instantly give your outdoors a touch of luxury and last a lifetime as well, making them an excellent choice.
The companion of the fantastic Bellevue rocker seen above, this is simply the spring-chair version which plays incredibly well with its swivel rocker counterpart. The features (weatherproof, incredible comfort, beautiful design) and quality all stay at the same level but instead of a swivel rocker base, it has a simpler but beautifully daring spring one that makes it a great option to use as a side chair, with the bonus of having armrests for extra comfort (while most side chairs don’t). The set includes 4 of these outdoor garden chairs, allowing you to build a stunningly high quality outdoor chair combination by getting a set of these (4 side chairs) plus a set of the swivel ones seen above (2 armchairs). If don’t own one already, simply get a fitting table to go along with these and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous complete dining set. The chairs need some very simple assembly, like the others, and come with 1 year of warranty as well. Even without getting the rocker version to complement them, these outdoor chairs shine bright on their own with their outstanding quality and built-to-last construction. Highly recommended.
These patio furniture chairs will radiate an elegant ambiance while also offering you and your guests a superbly comfortable outdoors seating experience.
