The seating of outdoor furniture. This kind of furniture is sold mostly as a patio set that consists of four to six chairs, a table and a parasol. This picnic table is used for the main purpose of eating your meals outdoors. The long chairs are referred to as the chaise longue and these are also very common items. Recently the seating furniture has also been used for the conversation areas that uses items like the couches.
These outdoor furniture are generally available in three forms. All of them consist of tables and chairs in different numbers and designs. Patio dining sets are apt for the large outdoor area like a huge porch area or a large patio. There are dining sets also available for these large areas. The Bistro sets are apt for small areas like the balcony of an apartment or a small 6 by 6 garden. The third kind is known as the conversation set. They mostly include a sofa and few chairs with a coffee table. These are also apt for larger areas as they include many pieces and are good for large group gatherings.
One can also use chairs instead of full sets. Lounge chairs are just perfect for the outdoors. These are made up of metal, wrought iron and synthetic material. These are in vogue nowadays as they are available at lower prices and offer the same sophisticated look like metal or iron furniture. These are also available in teak or hardwood but those are a bit on the expensive side.
Materials used in outdoor furniture. The most common materials that are used in the making of furniture are wood, aluminum, plastic and also wrought iron. As the wooden outdoor furniture can easily suffer because of the exposure to various elements, it essentially has to be treated. Teak is also a very commonly used material for garden or outdoor furniture. It contains natural silica and this makes it highly resistant to any type of fungal decay. Most of the effects of water and also chemicals are put away because of silica.
When a Teak is weathered, it also loses its original look but in turn it gains a very majestic and almost a silver glow. Most of the owners prefer this aged look of the teak because it has the resistance to infestation and rotting. It can also be appreciated without much upkeep. The aluminum outdoor furniture is long lasting and robust. However if the coating that is protecting it gets rusted, it can easily corrode. The plastic furniture is water proof naturally, thus it can be left outside throughout the year.
