Types of Patio Furniture
Whether you have a large patio or a small outdoor area, there is patio furniture available that is perfect for you and your home. Those who are looking to entertain guests may prefer sectional sets and sofa seating, while those looking to relax alone may prefer a comfortable daybed. With a wide variety of different options, styles, and arrangements to choose from, there is something for everyone. When creating your perfect patio, these are a few of the common pieces to consider.
Outdoor Sectional Sets
Outdoor sectional sets are the perfect starting piece to design the rest of your patio around. They provide plenty of seating with a modern and stylish look. For those who have large families or plan to entertain guests, sectional sets are highly recommended. The modular design allows you to move and rearrange the pieces to fit your space. With additional armless seats, the sectionals can also be extended. While the sets can all be customized, several arrangements are available including L-shaped, U-shaped, and round outdoor daybed sets.
Outdoor daybeds are stylish and comfortable. They make a great addition to any patio, deck, or outside space. Madbury Road’s daybeds are modular and made to fit any patio layout. If rest and relaxation are important to you, an outdoor daybed is the perfect choice. For each style of daybed, matching chairs, ottomans, coffee tables, and more are also available.
Outdoor Dining Sets
Is there anything more enjoyable than eating a delicious meal outdoors? Outdoor dining sets bring the experience of fine outdoor dining straight to your own patio or deck. Patio dining sets are available with seating for 6 or 8 people. For 4 person seating, smaller outdoor bistro sets are also a great option.
Outdoor lounge Chairs
Chaise outdoor lounge chairs are a popular choice for lounging by the side of the pool or on the deck. They take up far less space than daybeds, while still providing a comfortable way to kick back and relax. Lounge chairs are great for getting some afternoon sun or taking a nap in the evening. Several styles are available including teak and wicker models.
An outdoor sofa is one of the best ways to provide seating while giving your patio a modern look and feel. Sofas are also available in sets and can be expanded and customized with matching love seats, chairs, side tables, ottomans, and more.
Best Materials for Outdoor Patio Furniture
When choosing the right outdoor patio furniture, there are a lot of factors to consider. Because outdoor furniture has to be a lot more durable than indoor furniture, the type of material used is one of the most important things to consider. Wicker and teak wood are widely considered to be the two best materials for outdoor furniture.
Wicker Patio Furniture
Wicker furniture is one of the most popular choices for modern patio furniture. At Madbury Road, we use hand selected synthetic wicker that is hand-woven over a powder-coated aluminum frame. Our wicker is durable and weather resistant. It is also UV resistant, which prevents fading and discoloration from occurring over time.
Teak Patio Furniture
Teak outdoor furniture is a great choice for any deck or patio furniture. Teak is widely considered to be the best wood for outdoor use. Due to its natural oil content, teak is resistant to water and does not need to be treated. It is durable and resistant to warping, bending, or cracking. Additionally, teak is also naturally pest resistant, repelling termites and marine borers.
At Madbury Road, we use only the highest quality Grade A Indonesian Teak. We also ensure that all of our teak wood is FSC certified and responsibly sourced.
Patio Furniture FAQ
How long does patio furniture last?
Not all patio furniture is built the same. How long your patio furniture will last depends largely on the quality of the materials used. However, with high quality materials and proper care, both wicker and teak patio furniture can last for decades, maybe even a lifetime! That’s why at Madbury Road, we use weather resistant synthetic wicker and Grade A teak, to ensure that your patio furniture will last for years to come.
How do you care for outdoor patio furniture?
To properly care for and maintain outdoor patio furniture, there are two important steps you should take. When the furniture is not in use, we recommend covering it with water resistant outdoor covers. Additionally, during the winter, we recommend storing any cushions indoors in a dry location.
