12 of the best outdoor lounge rooms

Outdoor lounge room

Outdoor lounge rooms are the greatest, in our opinion. What’s better than chilling out on a comfy couch, drink in hand, under an open sky? We’ll tell you: not much.

Plenty of hire places have furniture that’s suitable for the outdoors – just chuck on a nice throw rug and some cushions and suddenly it’s got a personal facelift. Or do what we did and hit up council clean-ups, Gumtree and op-shops to acquire your own. You can always give the stuff away or sell it afterwards.

Here’s a compilation of some of our favourite outdoor lounge rooms to get your wedspiration flowing.

We love the colour palette here – the browns and neutrals contrast so nicely with the greenery. Some good-looking textures in those lounges too – nothing wrong with a bit of velvet and leather.

The massive rug adds warmth to what would otherwise be a gravel space, while the Aztec prints create plenty of interest for the eye. Via Pinterest.

Unique outdoor lounge rooms

Don’t feel like you need to pigeon-hole your styling into one theme – as this pic shows, its totally possible to combine vintage-style furnishings with more boho bits and pieces.

While this isn’t quite open-air, it’s an open shed so we’re including. Love this temporary vintage lounge room at Broger’s End, Kangaroo Valley.

This would look rather classy in someone’s house. It also looks rather classy on this lawn.

Marquee styling

So, while again, this one isn’t technically outdoors, it’s still a makeshift lounge room but in a marquee. And it’s awesome.
