Outdoor Furniture 101
Material is the most important thing to consider when shopping for patio furniture. It’s also crucial to consider the climate you live in. If not treated, wood will crack or even rot over time. Teak and eucalyptus are the most resistant, durable woods, but they’re expensive. On the other hand, inexpensive plastic furniture isn’t sensitive to rain, but if left in direct sunlight, it will drastically fade in color. Like hybrid wood flooring, manufacturers have introduced several materials to offer the best of both worlds. These blends are much more budget-friendly. POLYWOOD combines wood and recycled plastic for a sustainable, durable furniture base that’s all-around weather-resistant. You can find it in both wood grain and colorful lacquer finishes.
Weather-resistant fabric is another important feature to understand before adding items to your cart. Most outdoor textiles, from patio umbrellas to seat cushions, are treated with a waterproof coating, but not all fabrics are built to withstand the sun and can fade in as little time as one summer season. Brands such as Sunbrella, which you’ll find in outdoor furniture at several major retailers, have award-winning fabric that can withstand color fading and even block harmful UV rays from the sun. Of course, the best way to extend the life of outdoor furniture is to store cushions and cover frames when not in use.
From durability and weather-resistance to cleaning and maintenance, there's a lot to consider when purchasing outdoor furniture. That's why we've created this go-to guide on the most popular materials on the market.
