Patio furniture is often the 'afterthought' in a patio design. Ideally,
however, your design plans should incorporate basic ideas about patio
furniture. A well-coordinated look is possible only if the patio itself,
the patio awning or canopy, and the patio furniture complement one
another.

You have a diverse range of choices available. One of the most popular is
cast aluminum patio furniture. As long as you steer clear of tubular
framing, these furniture pieces are extremely functional on a patio. In
spite of being fairly lightweight and easy to move about, solid cast
aluminum chairs are sturdy enough to withstand the wind and weather to a
large extent.

In contrast to wrought iron sets, cast aluminum patio furniture won't
rust. It is preferable to buy furniture with welded joints. If bolts are
used, they should be stainless steel or aluminum. A solidly crafted
aluminum chair, that is powder coated, will withstand years of weather
extremes, and family fun.

Just make sure that you follow the maintenance instructions to the
letter, or you may find that you have voided your warranty! Usually all
your aluminum patio furniture asks for, is to be spruced up with a bit of
water, to which a gentle detergent has been added. This if often followed
by a light coating of car wax as a sealant.

The Telescope Sling Collection is an example of aluminum patio furniture,
with styles to suit any patio design.

Wood patio furniture is a popular choice, because of the warm atmosphere
it creates. Western Red Cedar is frequently used, because of its well-
known weatherproof properties. As the wood isn't prone to warping or
cracking, it is highly usable outdoors.

Cedar is oil-rich, an important factor as far as wood preservation is
concerned. It also has an inbuilt insect repellant! A Cedar set has a
richness, which can be further enhanced with your choice of fabric for
the patio furniture cushions.

Another category you may consider, is plastic and resin patio furniture,
such as the Kettler Outdoor Furniture range. A wide variety of chairs,
chaise lounge designs, and tables are available. Resin patio furniture is
superbly suitable for outdoor use, because of its weather-resistant
characteristics.

Resin has the ability to go with the flow, so to speak. It expands and
contracts with changing weather conditions, and doesn't fade. The Kettler
range of patio furniture use a double-injection molding process, which
adds to its quality and explains why these pieces have such a long life.

If your patio design guides you to   choose a Sunbrella Awning, you have
the perfect partner for your patio   furniture. Sunbrella fabrics are well-
tested for outdoor use. Creating a   perfectly coordinated look is
painless, with such a classy range   to choose from.

Your patio furniture cushions, decked in Sunbrella's fashionable fabrics,
will be unlikely to fade or stain. Your patio is there to add to your
quality of life, and to facilitate effortless entertaining. Every aspect
of it should therefore be easy to maintain. By choosing Sunbrella
fabrics, you choose carefree patio living.

Your extra living 'room', has to be comfortable and relaxing. Your choice
of patio furniture is important enough to justify careful deliberation!
