Porch Gliders

Sway the Stress Away

Porch gliders are ideal for any porch. Whether your prefer an Adirondack glider, metal gliders, vintage gliders, or an outdoor furniture glider; the soothing sway is relaxing and a great way to enjoy a good book, glass of wine, or just take in the view.



Because they don't need overhead support, gliders are easily moved to avoid wind or rain on your porch and offer additional seating on large porches. See our glider options below.

We've had several porch gliders over the years and find them to be both relaxing and ideal for porches, decks, and patios. For porches with limited space, gliders may be just the answer.

Wooden Porch Glider With Heart



Want time alone or have very minimal space? A chair glider my be your solution.

Chair gliders have the benefit of regular gliders but with half the space.



For those with mobility issues, a glider is somewhat safer than a porch swing.

Whereas a porch swing has the tendency to float backwards when first seating, an outdoor furniture glider can only move a set distance.

My mother and grandmother loved to sit on their porch glider every evening; it was one of their favorite places to watch the world go by.



Gliders come in a variety of materials, finishes, and styles. You can find gliders in wood, resin, metal, wicker, recycled materials, and more. Glider styles range from Adirondack to mission, wicker, aspen, and more.

Metal Porch Gliders

Add cushions and you'll have a beautiful piece of outdoor furniture you can enjoy for years to come.

When selecting a glider for your porch ensure you find a quality product that will hold up to not only the weather but constant use as well. Ensure the glider mechanism is well built - it's the essence of a glider.



If you are considering a wood glider (the most popular) you'll need to maintain it over the years as you would any other wooden outdoor furniture.
