The similarities between the CB2 Sun Chair and the AllModern Louise Patio Chair are crazy. Both are made of wood, have polyester cushions with removable covers and have the same design, right down to the slatted back. The only differences are the look of the polyester cushions (the CB2 chair has a linen-like polyester) and the type of wood (the CB2 chair is teak, while the AllModern chair is acacia).

Teak is widely considered the best wood to use for outdoor furniture. Acacia wood is also weather resistant, but not to the extent that teak is. Acacia wood can be damaged by standing water and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Therefore, it is best to invest in furniture covers for both types of wood, but especially acacia wood.

The AllModern Louise Patio Chair (24.5″H x 32.5″W x 34.5″D) is rated 4.9 stars on Wayfair. One reviewer wrote, “Just wow! This chair looks great and was very easy to assemble. High quality parts and wood. The pillows are comfortable and also of high quality. I should have bought two…and the ottoman.”
