Backyard Gliders Add Comfort, Style to Your Outdoor Furniture
Remember the days when you shut your eyes and bathed in the delight of a ride on your backyard swing? You can recreate those fond memories by adding a backyard glider to your other outdoor furniture.
Stylish outdoor gliders
Gliders are not only comfortable and fun, but also very relaxing for curling up with the latest best seller on a gorgeous day. When guests arrive, don’t be surprised if they compete for a chance to “glide.” There’s no shortage of sizes and styles to suit any space requirements or design preferences:
Classic wicker. All-weather wicker outdoor furniture is a classic style that continues to be updated for use on backyard gliders. Neutral-toned striped cushions make this style a perfect addition to any décor.
Retro steel. What’s old becomes new again when you add a contemporary retro clam-shaped glider set to your patio. This style is also budget-friendly, and a rust-resistant coating adds durability.
Simple chic. A black Polywood® glider is simplistic in style and practical for all types of weather.
Casual comfort. No furniture begs “sit on me” quite like the La-Z-Boy brand. Plush seat and back cushions equals comfortable luxury that blends nicely with classic and traditional styles.
Rustic style. Choose a white cedar backyard glider with traditional log styling, and add colorful cushions for comfort. Cedar is a naturally strong wood that promises years of low maintenance use because it’s resistant to weather damage and deterioration.
Traditional wrought iron. If you’re looking for a heavy-duty backyard glider to place in a garden setting that will stand up to all types of weather, go with a traditional, but forever stylish, black wrought iron glider.
How backyard gliders work
Glider movement is created using an internal swinging mechanism that’s similar to a swing, but without the “hanging” aspect. On a backyard glider, the bench isn’t suspended, which makes it a flexible choice for both small and large areas. Frames aren’t necessary for a glider to be freestanding. This feature makes them more reliable and stronger to hold heavier weights.
