Your deck furniture decision-making will likely be inspired by the style of the deck itself. Is it a sleek, modern design, with lots of hard angles and geometric patterns? You may want to look into modern deck furniture to complement your contemporary deck, but contrast the hard lines of the deck itself with furniture that boasts some curves. A good option here could be cast-aluminum furniture, which is lightweight and can be shaped into curvy, modern styles. If you're looking for something more substantial, consider wrought iron, which is heavier, highly durable, and comes in every style, from whimsical 'English garden' to midcentury modern.

If your deck is more traditional or rustic, you may want to look into more staid wooden deck furniture. Your options here are wide and varied, but they include cedar, redwood and teak, all of which are weather and insect resistant, rich in color, and quite durable. In terms of design, wooden deck furniture runs the gamut—from sharp-angled, low-slung modern designs to back-to-nature furniture made from recovered wood and intertwining branches.

Finally, don't turn your nose up at wicker. Contemporary wicker styles have a great, updated look, are almost always treated to make them highly resistant to weather, and provide great comfort and portability, since they're so light.
