Next you should consider the various materials available for patio furniture. Traditional wicker or bamboo patio furniture now comes in a variety of weights, colors and pricing tiers. For a more substantial feel, you might try redwood or cedar furniture, which will be naturally resistant to warping, decay and insects. If you're worried about weather wear, you might want to consider wrought iron or stone for tables and chairs. Even cushions for couches and chairs are now made of acrylic fabrics that can withstand all types of weather and sun exposure.

If your patio is poolside, consider teak furniture, which is highly water resistant. Speaking of which, for great durability and water resistance you might consider powder coated metal furniture, which can last for years without scratching or fading.
