Outdoor garden furniture is constructed of many different materials. Some materials consist of wicker, rattan, aluminum cast iron, plastic, resin, wood or steel similar to the old fashioned "spring" chair of the 1940‘s. If your sitting area, patio, or backyard is in direct sunlight you may want to purchase aluminum cast iron frames that have muted colored cushions. Teak wood furniture is an excellent choice to be out in the open since it ages with a patina that is a silvery gray. Both the teak and aluminum cast iron furniture holds up very nicely when used by children because they are both sturdy plus the teak furniture will not splinter.

In general, there are three types of outdoor sets. All three are made up of tables and chairs, although the types of chairs and size of the tables vary greatly. Patio dining sets are ideal for larger outdoor spaces, such as large patios or back porches. Bistro sets are designed for smaller spaces, such as an apartment balcony. The third type of set you will find is called a conversation set. Conversation sets often include a sofa and a few chairs accompanying a coffee table. Conversation sets tend to be larger pieces of furniture and fit most comfortably in big spaces.
