Many plan their porch and patio furniture purchases with little or no thought of using wicker gliders. Furniture gliders were popular many years ago and are starting to make a comeback for a good reason. They provide all the same benefits as their stationary counterparts but offer the additional benefit of gliding back and forth with the rhythm of your own body. As a result, gliders are extremely relaxing and satisfying and should be seriously considered when furnishing your outdoor lounge.
Types of Wicker Gliders
Gliders are typically available in single and double occupancy sizes. There are some three-seaters around, but they are hard to come by. Similarly, they are available in standard and deep seating models as well. They require a little more room from front to back compared to stationary furniture such as a chair, loveseat, or sofa, but it’s not much. The chances are that you can utilize them in the space you have for other furniture.
Outdoor gliders are designed using all-weather materials such as aluminum frames, loom and resin wicker cane, and outdoor cushions. They can be used both indoors and outdoors. Many people today use resin wicker inside their homes, such as in a four-season or family room.
A new type of glider has become very popular within the last few years. It’s a single-seat glider that’s called a swivel glider. It not only is a glider, but it also swivels 360 degrees as well. This swivel glider is a deep-seating glider that provides the utmost comfort while still being a glider. This piece of furniture should be considered when shopping for a deep-seating single chair or glider.
Wicker gliders are making a comeback and should be considered when purchasing casual furniture for your home. Choices include single, double, and three-seat gliders, standard and deep seating gliders, and swivel gliders. They are designed to be used outdoors as well as inside the home.
