Natural Acacia

A traditional acacia wood glider bench like this one has room enough for two and classic appeal won’t ever get old. 


The Pleasant Bay bench takes cues from the classic glider bench design, but updates the form with a deep black paint job. 


This cast aluminum glider in an antique bronze finish has a modern feel with the comfort to match. 


Complete with a UV-protected polyethylene seat and a sturdy steel frame, this bench has a quirky design with an understated feel.  


With a cleverly designed retro aesthetic combined with the ability to glide, what’s not to love! It also comes in five fun colors. 


This elegant steel glider’s high contoured back gives it a luxurious feel that’s worth the money!

On the Lake

This woven material closely resembles the warmth and richness of real leather. It’s hard to look past Tropitone’s soft hand sling fabrics, which are available in 11 different options. 

Coral Coast

So you want a resin wicker glider bench? You’re in luck! With ample space for 2 people, this glider is both cozy and extremely durable.  

Log Ride

Large wooden logs and flat pieces of unfinished or amber spar varnished wood were used to build this bulky Flintstones-esque glider.

Iron Horse

Looking like it came right out of a history book, this Iron Horse Glider is one to covet and hold onto for dear life!


Jackson & Perkins is known for their green thumb, so why not grab this simple glider from a company who understands exactly what you want!

Bench Warmers

A bench bookended by planters creates a lovely vignette framed by a Pamela Crawford living wall planter above and outdoor rug beneath. 

British Bench

A beautiful metal circular bench gets some British flair.

On the Bench

This Adirondack bench has room for two! It’s made from a durable lumber that gives it the look of painted wood, without the extra maintenance. It comes in 7 complimentary colors, and is made in the USA. Polywood Classic Adirondack Bench; polywoodinc.com
