1. Classic Rockers
We're not talking about guys with long hair and electric guitars. But what we are talking about are these beautiful classic rocking chairs. Wooden rockers are practically synonymous with front porch sitting. And what's great about them is they can be painted to go with any color you could want.
These classic porch rockers come pre-painted. Six different color varieties are available to make it easy to find just what you need for your porch. Click here for this on Amazon.
2. Antique Wicker With Upholstered Cushions
When we think of front porches on homes with wide plank flooring and gorgeous floral plantings in the beds, we think of vintage. And vintage makes us think of wicker. What is more beautiful than a couple of antique wicker chairs outfitted with fabulous upholstered cushions? It's eclectic and fun and gives your front porch a touch of vintage appeal.
3. Recycled Adirondack Chairs
Adirondack chairs have a long history of outdoor comfortable seating. Traditionally built out of wood, in current times, versions are being made out of recycled materials. The advantage to this Trex-like material is its weather resistance. Furniture that doesn't rot or mold or splinter over time is great for outdoor seating.
These composite Adirondack chairs come in a wide variety of colors. These have the added bonus of being foldable, which makes them easier to move around. Click here for this chair on Amazon.
4. Swivel Chairs With Cushions And A Cafe Table
If you love dining al fresco, then you'll definitely want to pair a table with your porch chairs. These metal swivel chairs have comfortable bounce and swing, and the cushions are easy to replace with off-the-rack alternatives. The glass table is easy to clean, and the metal legs on both the chairs and the table are easy to touch up with spray paint if they get weathered.
5. Sleek Metal Chairs For A Small Balcony
If your porch is actually a small balcony, don't worry. It's easy to find sleek, stream-lined metal chairs that don't take up a bunch of square footage. Add some comfy cushions, bright throw pillows, an outdoor throw rug, and a small side table, and you've got the perfect spot for an evening beverage.
6. Slatted Wooden Chairs In Sunny Yellow
One sure way to bring attention to your porch is with cheery chairs and flowers. Here a pair of slatted wooden chairs are painted a bright sunshine yellow. A large planter with a collection of flowering annuals adds additional color and texture to the seating arrangement. Of course, any bright color of your choosing could work for these types of porch chairs.
7. Hanging Chairs Are Awesome
If you want something fun and a little different, why not consider a hanging chair on a stand? These chairs are great if you want something swingy but don't have overhead rafters. Think about these for a porch that is more of a deck in style. They are contemporary and ultra-cool, along with being very comfortable.
This hanging porch chair is made out of weatherproof resin. Comfortable, contemporary, and just plain awesome, this piece will make you happy. Click here for this design on Amazon.
8. Contemporary Weatherproof Rattan Chairs With A Fire Pit
Here's another super porch chair arrangement for a roofless porch or deck. These contemporary chairs look like natural rattan, but they are actually made out of a weather-resistant vinyl thatch. This allows them to be left outside during the summer season. Paired with a small portable fire pit, this is a lovely spring and fall porch arrangement
9. Woven Papasan Style Porch Chairs
Here's another super fun porch chair look. These woven chairs are styled after the more cushioned interior papasan chair. Threads are woven in a fun yellow color to create a secure and comfortable seat. These would be so fun on a city bungalow porch or in an overgrown bayou garden.
This cute set is pretty close to the yellow set in the photo. And it goes one better by giving you a matching small table. Shown here in aqua blue, it's also available in black, grey, or white (all with matching table). Click here for the set of three on Amazon.
10. Why Not Lounge Around
If you'vegot an amazing ocean view, then you might want to stretch out, not just sit. If that's the case, then consider a pair of teak loungers. Teak is great as outdoor furniture as it's long-lasting and rot-resistant. Add some cushions if you choose, but don't forget the sunscreen.

11. Comfortable Armchairs For The Porch
If total comfort is your jam, then don't overlook great outdoor armchairs. These club chairs in a weather-resistant vinyl rattan give you all the cushy comfort your tush could want. A circular rug, a cozy pouf, and great throws make this an awesome cool night hangout.
