Many homeowners choose to turn their yards into a sanctuary for relaxation and fun. If that's your design goal, then your outdoor furniture sets should support it. The money you invest in your decor pieces should come back to you in the form of afternoons spent lounging and evenings full of friends. Today we want to focus on the idea of promoting calm and health in your life by looking at one particular product: orbital loungers. These outdoor lounge chairs are engineered to give you the most luxuriant experience possible. Plus, they come with tons of other benefits!
About the loungers
Orbital loungers are a unique product that look different than many other outdoor chairs. The lounger is supported by two rings that cross in an X formation. This structure gives the chair its curved, zero-gravity shape. The chair reclines in such a way that your legs are on the same plane as your head. By lying in this posture, your body will be able to equalize its blood pressure, taking tension off your lower extremities. Ideally, after lying in an orbital lounger, you'll be able to feel the difference, experiencing sensations of relaxation.
Chair weight and load
Orbital loungers are constructed to be lighter weight than other outdoor furniture pieces. Wider models that seat two weigh 25 pounds and single-person chairs are 30 pounds. Because orbital loungers aren't heavy, you can move them around your yard with ease. Furthermore, orbital loungers are built with strong aluminum and weatherproof fabric that can carry up to between 275 and 300 pounds.
Storing and caring for loungers
Depending on which orbital lounger you purchase, it will fold up to be a mere 8 to 12 inches wide. Such a narrow fold makes storing the chairs easy. We suggest putting them in a safe dry spot during extreme weather conditions and winter. Doing so will protect your investment for years to come.
While orbital loungers are made with weatherproof and durable material, you should still occasionally clean them – this will remove dirt and dust collected from being outside. All you'll need is a gentle broom or paint brush, water and a mild detergent (such as dish soap). Use the broom to sweep away debris, and then rinse. Use the detergent to carefully wash the chair. Rinse it off again and let it dry. You can also use a towel to dry the chair more quickly.
Coloring your yard
You want your outdoor furniture to match the existing color scheme of your yard, so don't forget to look at cushions when you shop for a lounger. Take a look at your other outdoor furniture and the decor dotting your yard to decide what colors will fit in best. Orbital loungers come in several fabric choices, so you'll be sure to get one that matches your current decor plans.
