What characterizes a luxury outdoor retreat? It’s usually up to the seating. Providing ultimate comfort in just the right form is one way to ensure that everyone has the perfect place to kick back and prop up their feet while enjoying the beautiful weather on an autumn day. Here are our top picks for the best outdoor seating whether it’s poolside, patio-wide, porch perfect or pavilion precise.
Best Patio Seating
The patio is usually the largest space in your luxury backyard. That means it should also get the roomiest seating pieces. This is the not the place for a little wrought iron bistro set. It is the place for a plush sectional with deep cushions and perhaps a matching chair, rocker, ottoman or lounger.

Opt for a bold upholstery color, such as the bright red shown here, to really make a statement with the best outdoor seating for your patio.
Best Pool Seating
When it comes to enjoying the outdoors poolside, most of us want to recline in a lounger that perfectly fits our frames. Something else to think about is the looks of a lounge chair that will be placed poolside. It is just as important that your seating have plenty of style in addition to comfort.

Best Porch Seating
Whether front porch or back, porches tend to be narrow, which limits the best outdoor seating options for this space. While most people tend to think first of a front porch swing, there are other choices that better say “welcome” to your visitors.

It features ultra-soft, easy to clean upholstery in your choice of hue and comes with a pair of pillows that can be ordered in a complementary color.
