A tanning ledge, also known as sun shelf or Baja shelf, is a popular pool feature for many reasons. This wide, shallow area of the pool allow you to sit, converse, relax, and cool off—without venturing all the way into the water.
But to really sit back and relax, you need something in between a pool float and a patio lounge chair…
The new Ledge Lounger is a luxury chaise lounge designed to be placed right on your pool’s tanning ledge or wet deck so you can sunbathe in style.
Designed for 6 – 8 inches of water, this stylish lounge chair comes in 11 different colors: white, gray, dark blue, light blue, green, red, orange, tan, and purple, as well as sandstone and granite, which have a subtle textured effect.

Made of a high-end resin resistant to pool chemicals and UV rays, Ledge Loungers are said to last 10-plus years. Weighting only 35 lbs, they are easily stackable for storage. Ledge Loungers cost $649 each.
To use the Ledge Lounger, submerge it beyond the depth of the sun shelf, then pull onto the ledge. Remember to drain water from the lounger often and clean it using household soap and water.

Classic white is an ideal color choice for the Ledge Loungers shown in these two contemporary pools.
Ledge Loungers in the sandstone color are a perfect fit in this pool whose tanning ledge already provides contrast again the deck and pool interior.
