chaise lounges is a great idea as an outdoor furniture as well, either for the patio, backyard, pools and even boats. To have it as an outdoor furniture, you will need to be extra careful with choosing the right material to endure all weather conditions. They are normally available in wood, metal and plastic, however you might want to avoid metal because of its low endurance and huge fuss. You will need also to consider using water proof fabrics for the cushions, sunbrella fabric is considered the best option for that.
