The 10 Best Outdoor Furniture Pieces to Shop During the Wayfair Way Day Sale in 2023

Reader Favorite

1. Mercury Row Norton St Philip Chair

Mercury Row

  • Why We Love It: modern design, sturdy manufactured wooden frame
  • Customer Review: "[This is a] great chair! [It's] sturdy and comfy, [and I've gotten] so many compliments, too. [Its] beautiful pop of teal looks gorgeous in my living area."

This mid-century modern beauty has a frame and legs that are made from manufactured wood and a cushion with both foam and springs. The fabric looks and feels like linen though it’s actually polyester, and we love the pop of color you'll get from the gorgeous teal blue. You will have to assemble the chair upon arrival, but reviewers say it’s incredibly easy. They also mention how surprisingly lightweight the chair is, meaning you can move it from room to room whenever you want without requiring the help of your über-fit neighbors.

Most Color Options

2. AllModern Miller Armchair


  • Why We Love It: stain resistant, high arm rests
  • Customer Review: "It’s a great chair! Comfortable, deep and has the perfect height arms. It’s perfect for reading, snuggling or just relaxing."

Made with stain-resistant material and high arms, this accent chair is comfortable and well-made. Its sleek, modern design will mesh well with many decor setups and reviewers say the cushion is sturdy without feeling too hard (aka it won't take you five minutes to get out of it). Each upholstery color comes with the same walnut legs for a modern, upscale look. Our only issue with this chair is that it only has a weight capacity of 200 pounds.

Best Under $200

3. Sand & Stable Hertford Lyquinn Armchair

Sand & Stable

  • Why We Love It: manufactured wooden arms, deep-seated
  • Customer Review: "I love the color of the [manufactured] wood and fabric. They came nicely packaged, there were no damages and it was really easy to put together. They're really sturdy and pretty."

For those who don’t have quite so much space for a chair with large, tufted arms, this sleek design is just as comfortable and a bit narrower—perfect for smaller spaces. The upholstery is 100 percent linen and it has a slanted, deep seat for a comfy, relaxed feel. One reviewer commented, “[It's a] surprisingly comfortable chair that's simple to put together. The fabric is easy to wipe down and the seat cushion is nice and firm."

Best Recliner

4. Birch Lane Leather Westmere Recliner

Birch Lane

  • Why We Love It: studded edges, sturdy frame
  • Customer Review: "This chair is absolutely perfect in every way! The best part, at least for us, was the ease of assembly. Screw the legs on, slide the back down and you're done. [The] color is as shown; it works great. I’m thrilled with this chair!"

This genuine leather seat is available in tons of colors and will be delivered within two days of your order, according to Wayfair. It has a weight limit up to 300 pounds and a 20.5-inch depth, so you can sink comfortably into it when you're ready to wind down for the day. And if you don't have any tools at home to put this baby together, don't worry, it comes with everything you'll need. "The leather is so soft and it supports and contours into my back perfectly. It was super easy to put together. It took me longer to get the two pieces out of the well-protected packaging than it took to [build it]. You can’t go wrong with this chair," raved one customer.

Best Velvet Chair

5. Mistana Boevange-Sur-Attert Armchair


  • Why We Love It: wide seat, stain-resistant
  • Customer Review: "Stunning and sturdy! We bought two and they immediately transformed the space from drab and boring to cozy and stylish. I’m very tall and heavy and can sit cross-legged on these chairs with ease and never feel like they are in danger of buckling."

For something a bit more glam, this seamed chair certainly fits the bill. The velvet material looks incredibly expensive and is also stain-resistant, making it durable enough to withstand scratching claws from misbehaving pets. Like the style above, the frame and legs are FSC-certified for an eco-friendly touch. Writes one fan, “Stylish, bold color, comfortably firm cushion. Very deep, perfect for relaxing. Definitely worth buying.”

Best Barrel Chair

6. Wade Logan Annalee Barrel Chair

Wade Logan

  • Why We Love It: arrives fully assembled, swivel mechanism
  • Customer Review: "Comfortable, well-built and the green color was exactly what we wanted!"

The manufactured wooden frame of this chair will ensure its sturdiness over time, and the swivel bottom will be great for watching your television. The chair also arrives to your door fully assembled. "Love the chair and the fabric is very soft to the touch," writes one shopper.

Best Leather Chair

7. Steelside Aichele Vegan Leather Chair


  • Why We Love It: tufted vegan leather, anti-microbial
  • Customer Review: "[It's] very easy to put together and sturdy. I’ve had it for about a week now, but I’m hoping it holds up well! It’s also firm but still comfortable."

A sleek accent chair to add to your home office or living room, this has a tufted seat back and a wide base that won't make you feel like you're falling into a black hole. The frame is made of manufactured wood and steel for a very durable make.

Best for Dining

8. Mercer41 Brumett Accent Chair Set


  • Why We Love It: velvet upholstery, set of two
  • Customer Review: "I'm in love! The color is perfect. Some greens look more blue in person, but these were exactly what I was looking for [and] assembly took me minutes."

If wooden dining chairs or benches aren't really your style, opt for an upholstered velvet set to add some glam to your dining room. This duo has a shallow, sturdy seat that's still comfortable to sit in and are stain- and snag- resistant. The gold hardware on the back forms a handle, too, so they'll be easy to pull out and push in from the table.

Best Patterned

9. Etta Avenue Claudie Chair

Etta Avenue

  • Why We Love It: easy assembly, contemporary aesthetic
  • Customer Review: "I ordered two for my office and they exceeded my expectations. They are made well and the color is absolutely beautiful. Assembly was a breeze since it only required attaching the legs."

Gold-tone legs and a soft, patterned fabric give this accent chair majorly glamorous vibes. It also comes in several pattern choices, from gray to green to blue with colorful accents, so there’s bound to be one to fit your home’s aesthetic. It has a 4.8-star rating and nearly 1,400 5-star reviews, with many reviewers saying this pick looks so much more expensive than its price tag. It’s also purportedly incredibly comfortable, so it’s not just for looks.

Trendiest Chair

10. Joss & Main Marzi Barrel Chair

Joss & Main

  • Why We Love It: barrel shape, cozy fabric
  • Customer Review: "Love having my morning coffee in these chairs, they are super cozy and the easiest to put together!"

The faux shearling is giving us the trendy bouclé vibes that are so popular right now, and the barrel style makes it great for curling up to comfortably read a good book in. This one in particular has a nice, deep seat and comes fully assembled, so there will be no need to break out your cobweb-covered toolbox from the garage.
