Types of Patio Furniture - Outdoor Dining Chairs

Outdoor living is something that touches us all in one way or another, regardless of the amount of outdoor space we have at home. When you decide to furnish your outdoors there are a lot of great options to consider.

Spending time in the fresh air under a clear blue sky is a pleasure. In order to truly enjoy your time outdoors long-term it's essential to have some sort of seating. Summer Casual sees patio furniture in 3 distinct categories - outdoor dining, bistro sets and conversation seating. Each of these categories work in a variety of spaces and it is not uncommon to have more than one in a backyard. It all depends on how much space you have and how you like to use that space.

Today we'll talk about outdoor dining sets, specifically dining chairs.

Outdoor dining sets traditionally will include a table and chair set for four or more people. Chair materials will typically be sling, wicker or solid. Wicker and solid chairs may or may not come with a cushion, depending on the design and your personal preference.

What is a sling chair? Sling is a heavy synthetic weave that is durable but has a lot of give when sat upon. It is very comfortable for seating around a dining table. Many sling chairs have rocking features that can also be very soothing. Sling is available in a wide array of colors to add some spice your deck or patio. It is also easy to care for and can be cleaned with soap and water.

Wicker can be natural or resin. Resin wicker will last much longer outdoors and comes in a variety of colors. Wicker chairs are usually built around a powder coated aluminum armature that makes them both durable and lightweight. They are a very attractive choice for an outdoor dining set and come in a variety of styles and price points.

Solid chairs can be made out of wood, metal or plastic. Summer Casual's solid chairs are primarily made of painted aluminum or steel. The advantage of these materials are their durability to the outside elements. The design possibilities are just about endless and these chairs can be easily accessorized with a comfortable outdoor seating cushion and colorful lumbar pillow.
