The level of quality and sophistication of these outdoor lounge pieces is clear in the cleanly fabricated, corrosion-resistant aluminum frames and innovative textilene seats. The coolest yet is the the chunky yet lightweight forms of Philippe Starck’s Bubble Club Sofa and Armchair that recall classic Chesterfield styling in colorful, weatherproof, UV resistant, roto-molded polypropylene. ........In addition to these cutting edge collections, DWR offers many versions of European inexpensive cafe seating that looks just as good indoors as out. In the Emeco Naval Side Chair, there is beauty in strength. Like many of the designs from the 1940s, the Emeco Naval Barstool has its origins in the military's demand for lightweight, corrosion-resistant equipment. To satisfy the U.S. Navy's rigorous specifications, chairs and stools were produced that could stand up to the toughest use-both indoors and out. Still going strong, its appeal has proved as durable as its weather-resistant anodized surface. The gently curved seat provides unexpected comfort. Featured on HBO's "Sex and the City". www.DWR.com

Brookbend's outdoor furniture embodies sophistication and good sense-the form factor of teak patio sets in warm, flawless cedar.

At Victoria and Cie every piece is bench made by hand, using solid wood, in stock sizes starting at 4 to 6 inches thick. They do not laminate or use glue-ups to get the thickness they require. This alone sets them apart from most furniture makers. All of their finishes are hand rubbed. They have devised our own style of finish that marries the look of antiques with the durability of a modern finish. Victoria & Cie will only make a certain number of pieces of one design and then retire that design. They consider their furniture to be a work of art made in the tradition of old masters: each design may be customized to the specifications of the client's needs. Victoria & Cie furniture is hand crafted using the materials and techniques of yacht building. The finish is a marine finish using West System Epoxy® and AWLGrip® clear varnish for durability and weather resistance. These are the finest marine ( boat) products on the market. Little to no maintenance is required to keep the furniture looking beautiful, and the finish will last for years when properly cared for. They do not stain or alter the natural wood which is the finest Honduran mahogany. All of their products are made in the USA.

Robb & Stucky If maintenance is an issue, cast aluminum and sling products are some of the best choices. Aluminum is durable, lightweight, and will not rust. High quality aluminum frames have an electrostatically applied powder-coated paint finish, a process similar to that used in the automotive industry.  Cast aluminum is as practical as it is beautiful, lightweight and rust-proof, cast aluminum is suitable for both interior and exterior decor. It’s sand cast and hand finished, so minor differences in pieces within a set can be expected. In addition to aluminum furniture, Robb & Stucky offers teak furniture. As durable as it is lovely, teak is an extremely dense, fine-grained hard wood that’s been used in the marine industry for centuries. There’s been a tremendous resurgence in teak furniture. Teak is a very beautiful wood. Oiled every six months, it retains its brown color. If you choose not to oil it, it takes on a soft gray patina, which is also very beautiful. Either way, our teak furniture has mortise and tenon joinery, which gives it a precise fit. It lasts and lasts. Manufacturers are also ‘mixing media’ these days. Teak top tables are being paired with cast aluminum bases, teak enhances the look of strap, and so on. There are some truly interesting combinations coming out of the industry today. Robb & Stucky addressed environmental issues surrounding teakwood by researching suppliers who harvested from carefully controlled plantations in Indonesia. These teak suppliers guarantee reforestation, thus preserving the teakwood forests.  www.robbstucky.com/patio.htm

Outdoor Furniture Maintenance

Outdoor furniture is a large investment and not something you will want to replace annually. With proper care and cleaning, you should get years of enjoyment from your outdoor tables, chairs and benches. When new furniture is purchased, often a care leaflet is included. This info is easily lost over the years. Since outdoor furniture comes in a wide variety of materials, there are many different approaches to maintenance. Most outdoor furniture can be cleaned with mild soap and water. A pressure washer with between 1200 to 1300 psi is useful for cleaning many types of outdoor furnishings, but be sure to use a low setting. 
Wicker furniture can usually be cleaned with a garden hose and bristle brush to dislodge the debris that gets in the weave. Do it in full sun if possible on a dry day so that it dries quickly. When dry, you can apply a paste wax to the frame to help keep it clean and water resistant. Be aware tho that the effect of water on paste wax can leave whitish spots, like the rings that cold beverage glasses leave on polished furniture. If the wicker is unpainted, a product like Thompsons Water Seal might be a good choice for exposed frames and worn areas. 

Wooden outdoor furniture that has been finished with a exterior grade varnish can be cleaned first and re-treated if weathered or worn after it is completely dry. Wood garden furniture is best stored indoors over winter except for teak and cedar which have natural preservatives in the wood. 

Fabric from outdoor chairs and hammocks can often be washed in the machine on a gentle cycle. You can add bleach for white items. To avoid shrinkage, stretch the fabric that goes on frames back in place while damp. Be sure to clean or treat the frames before the fabric is put back on. Store fabric indoor furniture indoors off season. 

Fabric cushions can be scrubbed with a soft bristle brush and rinsed with water. Allow to dry completely before putting into use or storage. Some types of cushions are mildew resistant and can be scrubbed with a solution of 1 cup bleach, 1 cups detergent, gallon of water. Mix and spray on the cushion and allow it to soak for 30 minutes, then scrub and rinse with water and allow to dry completely. When storing fabric cushions, never wrap them in plastic. Plastic does not breath and you are much more likely to get mildew. 

Resin or Poly outdoor furniture is the easiest in the care dept. A product designed to clean boats, like Greezed Lightning, melts old body oils and grime. Just rinse well. Most general purpose cleaning sprays like 409, or Fantastic do a good job too, just don't let them sit on the finish for long. On a tough stain, you can sand past the stained finish with fine grit wet-dry sandpaper or abrasive powdered cleaner and polish the surface with paste wax to help re-finish where you have sanded. Mildew can be removed with a spray like Tilex, but just wash clean immediately. 

Outdoor umbrellas require some lubrication after being in storage usually. Check the joints and moving parts. Use a spray or drop lubricant on metal frames and bar soap or paste wax on wooden umbrella frames. Be sure to avoid getting it on the umbrella's fabric cover. Wash the covers using a soft bristle brush and a mild soap or detergent.
