Contemporary Outdoor Chairs
Contemporary outdoor chairs present all of the core tenets of contemporary and Danish-inspired design on durable, weather-resistant silhouettes, made specifically for outdoor life. At HAY, discover colored metal outdoor chairs, outdoor dining chairs, bar stools, lounge chairs, and benches from contemporary outdoor furniture collections designed specifically for HAY.
Types of Contemporary Outdoor Chairs
Outdoor Dining Chairs: Contemporary outdoor dining chairs make the perfect companions to contemporary dining tables. At HAY, shop durable powder-coated steel outdoor dining chairs from the Palissade, Balcony, and Hee Outdoor Furniture Collections – and pair them with their matching dining tables. Or hand-pick independent metal outdoor chairs from different collections for an eclectic outdoor dining set. HAY’s assortment of outdoor dining chairs also includes UV-resistant polypropylene chairs made for both indoor and outdoor use.
Many of the contemporary outdoor dining chairs at HAY are available as armchairs with arms as well as outdoor side chairs without arms. If you’re tight on space, consider outdoor dining chairs without arms – armless dining chairs will take up less physical space and allow your household and guests more freedom of movement around the dining table. Plus, you can tuck them neatly beneath the table when you’re done eating. For easy storage, look for stackable outdoor chairs that will take up minimal space in a garage or shed once the outdoor dining season is over.
Outdoor Bar Stools & Counter Stools: For outdoor bars or bar- or counter-height outdoor tables, shop for outdoor bar stools or counter stools. Like indoor bar stools and counter stools, outdoor bar stools have higher seats, perfect for pairing with high bars or countertops. At HAY, shop outdoor bar stools from the Hee and Palissade Outdoor Furniture Collections.
Outdoor Lounge Chairs & Chaise Lounges: Ideal for lounging poolside or fireside, contemporary outdoor lounge chairs have slightly reclined backs and deep-set seats. Patio lounge chairs are the perfect outdoor chairs for pairing with a fire pit or placing on a porch for a relaxing outdoor setup. Though common Adirondack chairs are the most recognizable of these outdoor lounge chairs, contemporary outdoor lounge chairs can come in many forms, including the uniquely slatted iterations available from HAY.
Outdoor chaise lounges are even more reclined, designed to keep you almost completely supine. They’re ideal for poolside sunning or napping. At HAY, shop outdoor lounge chairs and chaise lounges from the Palissade Collection, as well as delicately wired lounge chairs from the Hee Collection.
Outdoor Benches & Sofas: For larger outdoor conversation sets or outdoor dining sets, consider outdoor benches and sofas in place of individual outdoor chairs. Without seat backs or arms, outdoor benches offer ample seating options, and can be perfect space-saving outdoor seating options. Plus, they can tuck entirely out of the way beneath an outdoor dining table when not in use. Outdoor sofas do have backs and arms, but still provide more seating options than individual outdoor lounge chairs. At HAY, shop outdoor benches from the Balcony and Palissade Outdoor Furniture Collections and outdoor sofas from the Palissade Collection.
No matter your outdoor seating needs, HAY has unique contemporary outdoor chairs to furnish your outdoor space.
