The Want List: Aesthetic Beach Chairs

Have a most stylish seat in the sand.

Has your rusted steel-tube steady finally seen its last season? Maybe you just need to change up that cheugy old shoobie sitter. From wood-framed wonders to more lightweight, easily-toted designs with all the bells and whistles, here are four fantastic beach chairs that are sure to earn compliments all summer long.

Luxe Beach Chair by Sunnylife

This fully loaded design from Sunnylife checks all the boxes with form-following function. It’s accessorized with all the creature comforts: an adjustable headrest, zippered cooler pouch, and the quintessential beverage holder – along with a second pocket for your phone. It has six recline settings, the last of which will take you fully horizontal. It has backpack straps to haul it with ease. And despite having all the versatility and storage capacity of cargo shorts, it couldn’t possibly look better, with its classic nautical stripes and wooden armrests evoking the elegance of a grand seaside resort.

$140 at Sunnylife

Solid Wood Sling Chair by Casual Home

You might be thinking, what high-fashion beach chair could possibly come out of the Home Depot? First off, it’s an online exclusive. But also, you’d be challenged to find something that looks so good even at twice its price. These durable solid wood sling chairs fold completely flat, making for easy under-arm carrying or stacking in a beach wagon. Each comes with attached armrests — somewhat of a rarity for sling designs — and five recline notches to find your groove. When the durable canvas wears out, just replace it for a fraction of the cost.

$84.00 at Home Depot (and on sale, as of this writing, for $77.86 at Amazon)

The Pam Chair by Business & Pleasure

Pam is the cool boss of beach chairs, the kind that can close record deals in a New York minute from the sparkling beaches of Miami. Who knows: Maybe you’ll do the same sitting in one. This compact, portable recliner was designed with yacht deck elegance, making it just as ideal for posting up at an outdoor concert. With its detachable phone and drink holder, cushy seat and backrest cushions, and handsome teakwood arms, it works hard and plays harder. Choose from seven color combinations, slip its backpack straps over your shoulders, and find your spot.

$299 at Business & Pleasure Co.

The Beach Chair by Sunday Supply

When the water’s near and the sun is hot, sometimes the lowrider is the way to go. This clean-lined number from Sunday Supply Co. rides on short legs that keep it nice and close to the ground, whether you’re digging your feet into the sand or dangling them in the water. Both cushions are made from fast-drying, machine-washable fabrics that are fade-resistant and available in a myriad of fun designs — solids, stripes, and wilder patterns like ‘Animal Kingdom.’ Whichever you choose, there’s likely a matching umbrella to make it a set. Did we mention the included bag and carry strap?

$139-169 at Sunday Supply Co.
