Patio Furniture
your guide to the best.


The right Patio Furniture will allow you to make the most of outdoor living. At first glance the choice is bewildering. From teak and cedar to aluminum and steel with wicker and resin also available. Let us consider the merits of each.

Teak is one of the hardest woods and its natural oils make it resistant to wood rot. Teak furniture will last anywhere from 40 to 75 years. An added benefit is that the wood is cool to the touch even in the hottest weather.

Cedar is not so durable as teak and so is less expensive, but is reckoned to last for up to fifteen years. Cedar is also cool to the touch and its natural oils give off a pleasant scent which helps to repel insects.

Wicker furniture, though mostly considered for use in a conservatory, is also produced in an outdoor version which is claimed to be able to withstand the sun and rain.

Metal furniture is made from iron, steel or aluminium. Follow this link for further details.

Resin patio furniture is also lightweight and tends to be cheaper than other materials. Wrought iron and steel are also used and are treated to make them rustproof.

When it comes to the design of patio furniture, you are spoilt for choice. From chairs of all shapes and sizes to benches, loveseats, gliders, adironbacks, swings, chaise lounges... the range goes on and on. For a large selection have a look at Online Discount Mart
