6 Recommendations and 145 Ideas
Ridged Outdoor Glider Sofa
What we like: Clean-lined look
What we don’t like: Not the most comfortable back
Not so good for: Long lounging sessions
Perfect for: Hot climates
The powder coated steel frame of this sofa contrasts nicely with its thick cushioning. The cushions in question are made with Olefin, which is an eco-friendly alternative to solution-dyed acrylics. It will also last longer in the sun and has been tested with 1500 hours of sun exposure.
You can choose from a black or light brown frame and a red, navy, or beige cushion. Even better, the metal used is rust, water, and UV-resistant to prevent any damage over time. Overall, this sofa measures 47 inches wide and just over 33 inches tall. The weight capacity is 400lbs maximum.
Geometric Outdoor Sofa Glider
What we like: Unique design
What we don’t like: Metal dents easily
Not so good for: If you prefer cushioned seats
Perfect for: Adding a pop of color outdoors
We love the cool vintage vibe of this patio sofa. Crafted from metal, the powder-coated finish will help it to withstand harsh weather conditions like extreme sun. There are four different frame options to pick from – red gloss, turquoise gloss, white gloss, or matte navy blue. It is finished with a geometric design along the back which lends it a chic accent touch.
Embrace a Mediterranean vibe by opting for the white gloss finish and surrounding your bench with greenery. The weight capacity is 750lbs, meaning everyone can sit comfortably. Plus, the rounded arms will offer extra comfort.
Simple Sofa Glider Outdoor
What we like: Versatile design
What we don’t like: Expensively priced for no cushion
Not so good for: Cooler months
Perfect for: If you don’t like fussy designs
Crafted from steel, this glider is weather-resistant so you don’t have to worry about upkeep over the years. Its slatted design is understated yet stylish and won’t overwhelm a simpler patio. Moreover, the black frame will match most patios and homes, from whitewashed walls to red brick.
We recommend placing this bench in an allotment or grass-heavy area for a charming look.
However, due to its slatted back and non-cushioned seat, it may not be the most comfortable in cooler months. It is larger in width than others on this list at 50 inches wide, so you’ll have plenty of room to relax. The weight capacity is 615lbs.
Mesh Couch Glider
Red Barrel Studio®
What we like: Ergonomically designed
What we don’t like: Inside pipes rust easily
Not so good for: Traditional outdoor spaces
Perfect for: Modern patios
Affordably priced, this bench is made from powder-coated steel that’s designed to last for decades. The mesh fabric at the back will promote breathability and wick excess moisture on super hot days to provide a superior lounging experience. It is also quick-drying if your bench gets hit by a sudden bout of rain or sprinkler. Note, however, that this bench should not be used in heavy rain.
Even better, this bench is ergonomically designed to prevent any aches and pains when sitting. It measures 47 inches wide and a tad over 33 inches wide, meaning there’s plenty of room for two to stretch out. The weight capacity is 440lbs.
Retro Glider Couch Outdoor
What we like: Unique design
What we don’t like: Smaller seats
Not so good for: Stretching out
Perfect for: Adding retro flair
Available in lime, red coral, or yellow, this adorable bench will add tons of retro flair to your outdoor space. It is painted with a non toxic powder coated finish that adds a level of durability to the structure. Additionally, the back has a cut-out floral pattern that creates a charming accent touch.
Made from steel, the frame is also mildew resistant. Something to note is that this glider measures only 42 inches wide. While it will still seat two people, there will be less room to relax. We recommend surrounding your glider with retro plant pots and a pastel cushion or three to create your own vintage paradise.
Wicker Outdoor Glider Couch
What we like: Low maintenance
What we don’t like: Can blow over in wind
Not so good for: If you want something heavy duty
Perfect for: A light and affordable option
Weather-resistant, this glider couch is approved for year-round use. It is made from resin wicker for durability but has a tropical rattan look to it. Pair your glider with some palm leaf cushions in shades of green and cream to emphasize an island vibe.
Additionally, resin wicker is incredibly easy to keep clean and is therefore a great option if you hate high-maintenance items. Its lightweight frame also makes this bench easy to transport around if you need to carry it from your porch to near your pool. The frame is made of powder coated steel and can support 485lbs.
This comfortable and elegant sofa can be used both outside and inside. Solid, rust resistant, metal frame and thick soft cushions will provide your body perfect comfort and support. The material of the cushions is easy to clean.
