Outdoor Furniture

Outdoor furniture allows you to fully enjoy your landscape and to express your individual decorating tastes.

There are plenty of styles to choose from, like Mediterranean or English garden, making it easy to find furniture that matches your gardening style.

Wrought iron, aluminum, teak, and some types of wicker are good materials because they withstand rain and humidity better than others.

Choose outdoor fabrics like polyester or acrylic that won’t rot or fade, and cushions that are stuffed with polyester so they will drain and dry quickly.

Unique lighting can also make the outdoors look like the indoors. Look for products that have an all-weather light bulb and shades that are waterproof and washable.
