With quarantine still in place and work-from-home setup likely to last at least ‘til year end for many, it’s important to take time to unwind. Believe it or not, lounging, which is a fancier term for relaxing while seated on a chair or couch, is just as necessary as your daily hustle at work. Productivity, after all, is only possible when you take time to recharge for the next day or the week ahead.

If you’re on the lookout for chairs for lounging in your living room or balcony, here are five chairs that offer maximum comfort for your best rest days ever. 

Amalia Lounge Chair, Artesania Furniture

If comfort and style in one chair is what you’re looking for, this lounge chair is your best bet. Place it in the living room, bedroom, or backyard, it looks and fits just right with its combo of metal tube and flat bar in brass finish, as well as a foam upholstered seat and back cushion. 

Perlita 1S Recliner, Mandaue Foam

This locally-made, single recliner chair is perfect for soothing your tense muscles from a day of beating deadlines. Its padded seat and back, as well as a fool-proof recliner mechanism, feels a lot like a bed in a chair format—soft, cushiony, and perfect for capping off the day with wine or beer while staring into the sky. As these are made-to-order, it can come in a variety of finishes and colors, depending on your preferences. 

Hay Palissade, Design Story

For lounging outdoors—at least within your property—this piece is sturdy to withstand any weather, especially rainy days. Its slatted seating and powder-coated, olive steel tubes let rainwater slide. It blends in with the grass and plants in your backyard and stands out in your concrete balcony. 

Cassina LC4 Le Corbusier, Casabella Home and Living

Combining classic style and comfort, this lounge chair is both a statement piece and a functional piece for relaxation. Its adjustable swing and body make it possible to mirror the natural curves of whoever is sitting or lying down. It happens to be an investment piece, too, as its value increases over time. 

Vibieffe Fast chair and ottoman, Casanuova

Afternoon coffee or daily reading by the window can be more relaxing with this chair and ottoman combo. Both come in a wooden body and a leather seat and back cushion. Both can work as separate chairs, too, especially when you can finally have visitors over.
