Adirondack chairs on the beach

If for Father’s Day your dad would prefer to chill out more than anything, these ideas will give him something to relax on for his special day and beyond. Dad will love unwinding in his outdoor space with this new seating.

Adirondack chair

SITTING in Style 

Perhaps Dad would like a pair of Adirondack chairs where he can enjoy sipping iced tea and reading a book all afternoon.

He’ll love the sleek design of this all-weather Acacia wood Mopani Chair by Safavieh, pictured above. The design was inspired by the original Adirondack chair designed in 1903, and works well on a balcony and anywhere else.

Check out other options here.


Pillows in a hammock


Perhaps Dad is more a hammock guy. If so, he’ll enjoy lazy days and naps whenever he needs to take a breather in the shade.

Better yet, add some outdoor pillows to the hammock and he’ll really get comfortable. If Dad doesn’t have two sturdy trees, invest in a hammock stand so he can keep on rocking. 


Fire pit


If Dad is more the type to sit by the fire pit and roast s’mores with family and friends, he’ll love a fire pit.

If you’ve got a bigger budget, the entire fire pit conversation set will make his space complete. These sets come with the chairs and a fire pit table; just add wood and s’mores.


Oak Cliff glider

Gliding in the Garden

If Dad’s favorite place is sitting in the garden, create the perfect perch with a glider. He’ll love listening to the birds chirp and watching butterflies flutter among the flowers and plants in the garden.


Outdoor swing with pillows

Swinging on the Porch

Maybe Dad is jealous of the kids and would like to have a swing of his own, whether on the porch or in his garden. Porch swings provide instant seating and rocking and he’ll feel a world away when he sits back to enjoy the ride.


Belleville patio set

Made in the Shade

Don’t forget that with any of these options, Dad could use some shade. Budget-friendly umbrellas provide durable protection and coverage while retaining their color in the elements.
