Different materials for modern outdoor furniture



Synthetic resin wicker furniture can withstand the harsh conditions of the outdoors. High
Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a higher grade thermoplastic with higher strength, durability
and heat endurance than PVC.


Made from tightly woven polyester, Textilene is an extremely durable material, ideal for
garden furniture. The individual strands of the polyester are coated with poly-vinyl chloride
and then heat-set. This unique process is what makes Textilene resistant to abrasions, fading
and sun damage, and thereby well suited to outdoor use.

Polypropylene Plastic

Molded plastics–high grade polyethylene, polypropylene and so forth–offer unequaled
sculptural and color options. Plus, they combine great durability with a low weight that makes
outdoor seating and tables much easier to move around.



Aluminum can be extruded or cast into any shape or design. Its light weight and durability make
it an attractive option for outdoor furniture. Incredibly low maintenance, aluminum does not
rust like iron or steel when exposed to moist or salty outdoor air, nor does it dry out or crack
like most wooden furniture when exposed to the sun.


Upholstered outdoor furniture is unarguably the most comfortable of your options. It offers the
ultimate lounging experience, and a look that could just as easily be envisioned indoors.
Outdoor fabrics are usually made out of water resistant synthetic fibers like vinyl, polyester,
acrylic, etc. Such weaves tend to be breathable and resistant to sun fade, moisture and other
kinds of outdoor damage.
