Terry Lounge Chair Towel Cover: Seasonal Style for Your Chaise

With warm weather upon us, it’s time to indulge in the seasonal delights of outdoor living. And that means spending time lounging on backyard decks or patios and possibly even poolside. But after a long and punishing winter, you deserve to level up the look, feel, and luxury of your favorite lounge chair. At Fine Linen and Bath, we’ve the perfect solution: a hotel-style terry lounge chair cover.

More than a beach towel, a luxury chaise lounge chair cover is made to a generous size with a fitted hood to fit easily over most lounge chairs. The hooded elastic top holds the towel securely in place for long, leisurely days in the sun. The thirsty terry adds a spa-like look while protecting expensive patio furniture (especially cushions) from damage caused by sunscreen, sweat, and spills! It’s one of the most essential elements for your summer outdoor style.

Fine Linen and Bath proudly carries two styles of terry lounge chair cover: The Luxury Terry Lounge Chair Cover from ARLU Home and The Santino Cotton Terry Lounge Chair Cover from SFERRA. Let’s take a closer look at these luxury chaise covers.

The Resort Lounge Cover is woven of 100% Turkish Cotton terry cloth for a wonderfully soft, plush, and absorbent feel destined to delight you and your fussiest guests. Four-inch deep pocket corners fit most lounger chairs; thick, premium elastic sewn into the pocket hem fits snugly and helps prevent slipping. Extra-large size is made to hang comfortably over the sides of the chair or be tucked neatly under a cushion.

Comparing ARLU Home Luxury Lounge Chair Cover with SFERRA Santino

When it comes to choosing between these two beautiful lounge chair covers, you really cannot go wrong. However, we did notice that the size of the SFERRA Santino may be more of an estimate than a precise measurement; when we measured ourselves, the widest point of the Santino came in at a bit under 40” which is two inches less than noted in the official description. The discrepancy is cleared up, however, when noting that the Santino can only accommodate a four-inch-deep cushion. This is quite evident when you compare the curved notches of the two products; the ARLU chaise cover is clearly capable of accommodating a deeper cushion. The ARLU cover is also four full inches longer. At a heavier weight and with OEKO-TEX® certified fabric at a slightly lower cost, there is much to recommend the Resort Lounge Chair Cover from ARLU Home. However, any product bearing the SFERRA label comes with a known degree of quality and luxury that will always appeal to discerning clients and garner rave customer reviews. The bottom line: there is no bad choice between these products. So settle back in comfort and bring on the umbrella drinks!

Caring for Your Lounge Chair Cover

Both ARLU Home and SFERRA mention that their terry lounge chair covers can be machine washed. Because these products are oversized, they may fill up your entire machine. Wash them in cool water. We recommend washing them by themselves in cool water on a regular cycle; do not use bleach or fabric softener. Always follow fabric care guidelines; you can learn more about common laundry care symbols here. Because of the quality of the fabric and craftsmanship, we recommend using a detergent made for luxury home linen such as Heritage Park All-Purpose Laundry Detergent. This pH-neutral formula is made with a powerful blend of enzymes to effectively clean while preserving the beauty and integrity of fine fabrics.
