What Are the Best Materials for Outdoor Furniture Frames in 2019?

Best Wood Choices for Outdoor Furniture

When choosing wood patio furniture, the two best wood options are generally Teak wood and Ipe wood (pronounced ‘E-pay’). Teak has historically been used for boat building. Ipe is four times stronger than Teak, and has recently emerged as a sturdy favorite due to its strength and longevity.

Cast Aluminum vs. Cast Iron?

Cast Aluminum is another option when looking to create a comfortable and inviting patio setting. Cast aluminum patio furniture is both lightweight and sturdy.

Cast iron is lighter than wrought iron, but slightly heavier than tubular frame aluminum, which makes it the perfect middle-weight option when it comes to choosing patio furniture materials.

Natural Wicker vs. Synthetic Resin Wicker (HDPE)?

Natural wicker is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Since it is porous and can retain water, natural wicker will deteriorate when left outdoors. For use in patio furniture, synthetic wicker is the preferred option.

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is the best quality synthetic wicker. HDPE resin wicker is nonporous, the synthetic fiber is dyed all the way through, which means the color is not likely to fade easily.

What’s the Best Fabric for Outdoor Use?

Outdoor fabric is specially-made for durability and resilience to the elements. But it’s not just a well-made woven fabric, it’s also treated with special chemicals during the process of manufacturing, so that it resists mildew and stains. Over the years, Sunbrella Fabric has proven to be the best fabric for outdoor furniture, and its enormous popularity confirms that.

Sunbrella is the leading brand of outdoor fabrics, widely known and sought out for its tremendous color resiliency and fresh vibrant patterns that can be mixed and matched to achieve just about any look you want.

You will enjoy Sunbrella Fabric outside for many, many months – especially on outdoor sectionals, sofas, chaise lounges, outdoor deep seating, ottomans, stools and patio umbrellas!

Quality Materials for Outdoor Living – Well Worth it!

With new furniture made from these fine materials, you can bring the indoors outside, and make this season the most fun ever!

An often-forgotten space of any home is the outdoor living space. When you buy furniture, the last thing you may think about is your backyard, patio, balcony, or deck. More of an afterthought, it seems rather simple; “just go to the Big Box store and pick up some cheap outdoor seating.”

BUT when you go out to relax, it feels very different with the deep-cushioned comfort of high quality furniture, surrounded by the fresh air or the chirping birds – or maybe the joy of seeing family and friends play together on cozy furniture under the beautiful blue sky.

You’ve made a great choice when you invest in resilient materials that will serve you for many years – and possibly your lifetime!
