12 Summer Loungers for In & Out of the Water
Some of these summer loungers are for in the water, some of these summer loungers are for out of the water. And some of these summer loungers are for in and out of the water! Ha! Beat that, winter!
Note: All summer loungers are priced as they were at printing on April 28, 2023. Pricing, and availability, are subject to change.
Fluzzle Interlocking Float Tubes
Fluzzle Tubes, now these are the kind of hookups everyone will enjoy. The interlocking float tubes have traditional tubular center butt holes, with mesh supports on the bottom, and backrests for comfort. But rather than continuing their strict roundness on the outside, Fluzzle has added knobs and slots reminiscent of jigsaw puzzle pieces, and indeed, these tubes are meant to link together to build a human puzzle o' floating fun.
Fluzzle Tubes eliminate the need for ropes or hand / foot holds to keep friends together in the water, whether on a float trip down the river, or just chilling in a lake. The interlocking elements of the tubes allow them to be linked in a chain, a communal circle, or whatever amoebic design you come up with.
Loopita Double Chaise Lounge
Grab your friend Cornelius and do a loop-de-Loopita on this slick double chaise lounge from Mexico City-based furniture designer LEFT. Actually, maybe grab your wife, She-Ra: Princess of Power, instead. LEFT says the Loopita is a "a semi-intimate lounge for two...a seductive concept that intrigues people with its simplicity and exquisiteness." Definitely sounds more wife- than bro-worthy.
The Loopita Double Chaise Lounge is made of up 14 curved and 4 straight modules, plus 2 bases. The luxe pool chair is made of teak wood held together by stainless steel hardware.
TerraSol Sonoma Chaise Lounge - Deck Chair & Pool Float
Well, ladies, the next time your a-hole boyfriend picks you up and throws you into the pool, you can tell him to throw the pool lounger you were sitting on in after you. The SwimWays TerraSol Pool Sonoma Chaise Lounge is a hybrid deck chair and pool float.
Made of all-weather material in a rattan style, the floating lounger looks fairly decent dotting the pool deck in your choice of blue, brown, light beige, or white. It has joints at the middle so you can fold it in half for portability and storage too. But the best part is, when it's time for a dip, you don't have to stress someone will steal your seat because the TerraSol Sonoma Chaise Lounge goes from patio to pool, from sweatin' in the sun to chillin' afloat in the water, right along with you.
Lotus Blossom Double Comfort Lounge
A spring afternoon at the beach, floating in the ocean - pssssh! Only in my Mind Media meditation app. No, the Lotus Blossom Double Comfort Lounge from Swimline gets my attention as a reminder of brighter, warmer days to come. Imminently, I hope.
Looking like a baseball mitt ready to give you and your s.o. a squeeze, the Lotus Blossom Double Comfort Lounge measures 56.5" pinky to thumb.
BOTE Hangout Suite Floating Chair
A floating chair that's part of a "Hangout Suite," now that's what I'm talking aBOTE. Made with BOTE's unique inflatable AeroULTRA technology, and styled in its trademark seafoam green, the Floating Chair is a standalone piece of the brand's Hangout Suite series, which also includes connectable Inflatable Dock Hangouts in rounded and angled styles, a circular drink bar, a full-body lounger, FLOATubes, and Gatorshell coolers.
Panama Banana Lounger
Industrial and furniture designer Agota Rimsaite created the Panama Banana for "active relaxation," a term I will now employ daily at work to explain my new modus operandi of typing 3 sentences, and then napping 30 minutes. I won't have room for a webbed rocker at my desk, but I think this napping hoodie could sub in nicely.
The Panama Banana mimics the shape of a surfboard or ship, further encouraging users to get themselves to the beach ASAP.
Big Joe Captain's Chair Float
Mesh your lounging time on land with your floating time in the water. The Big Joe Captain's Chair Float will keep you chillaxed in the pool and on the patio alike. Though with more emphasis on the chill during those dwindling hot summer days that the pool deck makes you feel like a pig in a roaster.
Captain's Chair Floats are sewn with a quick-draining mesh bottom and quick-drying outer shell to make them water-friendly, and stuffed with Big Joe's trademark beans, here of the lightweight, buoyant variety. A pocket on the side of the chair serves as your cup holder.
FUNBOY Super Clear Chaise Lounger
One thing is clear: this FUNBOY Chaise Lounger. Hahaha, you're welcome, son. Dad will be here all week.
The FUNBOY Super Clear Chaise Lounger brings transparency to your summer fun with FUNBOY's proprietary material that is so see-through people might mistake you for a reclining Jesus in the ocean or pool. Measuring 70" long, the Super Clear inflatable should blow up to full near-invisibility in under 2 minutes. Enjoy the chaise lounger on water or on land.
Inflatable Tanning Tub & Pool Float
This tub-like inflatable as a pool float - whatever. There are a million pool floats and loungers out there, and if you're already at a swimming pool, who cares if your float can hold 6" of water? But on the balcony of your condo, or in your mama's backyard on a scorching summer day? An inflatable also deemed a "tanning tub," and fitted with a backrest and enough space for your lady to chill out in its hose-filled glory with you?
Now that's the kind of ingenuity I'm talkin' about. A real level-up on the kiddie pool, and perfect for a grown-ass man. A perfect grown-ass man gift for his girlfriend or wife, She-Ra: Princess of Power, too. Now you both can settle in with a cold beer or Vinglace glass topped up with pink wine, catch some Vitamin D, and not worry you're going to sear and / or sweat your epidermises off.
Flying Saucer Hanging Hammock Chair
The Flying Saucer Hanging Hammock Chair's official name is Flower House FHFSSVR Flying Saucer Hanging Hammock Chair with Bird & Bug Net. FHFSSVR? Gesundheit. Or should I say, Covfefe.
I stumbled across the FHFSSVR (Fun Hammock: Flying Saucer-Shaped, Very Round?) when I was researching cures for the winter blues. It only made me bluer, and more covetous of summer days. But then I circled back to the hammock (and not just because it's Flying Saucer-Shaped, Very Round) thinking maybe I could make myself feel better during my cold, cooped-up winter months by buying a crapton of new stuff I can use in the summer.
So meet my new backyard tree swing!
BOTE Aero Inflatable Beach Chair
And not just a beach chair. A camp chair. A backyard BBQ chair. A condo balcony chair. A boat chair. A festival chair. A chair that can show up in as many places as the Travelling Gnome. And in as many photos, too, stealing the show with its throne-like presence, and dashing seafoam skin.
The Hammock Throne
Yellow Leaf Hammocks is an established brand of handwoven hanging sacks o' relaxation. For the Hammock Throne, they've created a 46" diameter steel and curved hardwood base with a 360-degree swivel as a mount for their hammocks. The beauty of the Throne is that you can set it up indoors or out, no trees or posts required, and use only a small footprint of space. Empty it looks like a chair, and you can either sit upright and use it as one, or kick back and extend the hammock out to 7+' for a full lie-down.
