What are the best materials to use for outdoor furniture?

The materials we use in COUTURE have been carefully designed to withstand the elements. The best materials for outdoor furniture include.


  • Aluminium: a strong, stable material that is lightweight and rust-resistant.

  • Compact laminate: not only is it a stylish, low-maintenance material, but it is also a very durable surface that can withstand exposure to the outdoor environment and daily use.

  • Galvanised and stainless steel: renowned for its durability in harsh weather conditions for over 20 years. The galvanised coating prevents the steel from rusting, which is a key factor in maintaining outdoor furniture.

  • Teak: ideal for outdoor furniture due to its natural weather resistance and longevity. Thanks to its relative ease of use, you will find outdoor tables, benches, storage units and dining chairs made from teak.

  • Synthetic fabrics: UV and fade resistant, able to withstand extreme temperatures and harsh weather conditions.

  • Quick-drying foam: this foam has large, open pores for drainage and air circulation, so it can be used when wet or even when saturated.

A very common question "When should I buy outdoor furniture?" September and the start of October are always popular times to buy outdoor furniture. With new furniture releases starting in the spring, you can buy furniture in time for the festive summer season.The summer sales at the end of January are also a popular time to buy outdoor furniture, which you can get at discounted prices.


What is the best quality outdoor furniture?

When it comes to quality outdoor furniture, comfort is really key because we live differently outdoors. Even those of us with busy lives like to take our time; we wander around, we spend more time sitting in a chair relaxing with a good book or hanging out on the sofa chatting to friends. When it comes to outdoor furniture design, comfort and durability will always be insignificant competitive forces. The best mesh quick-drying foams drain more effectively than traditional Dacron foams. Both are suitable for outdoor use, but if you want to be out in the rain all year round, we recommend that you opt for the stronger reticulated foam.


Which woods are best for outdoor furniture?

Teak and cedar are two of the most popular choices for wooden outdoor furniture. Teak is a hardwood that is naturally denser and heavier than cedar. In terms of durability, teak is a superior wood to cedar. Of the two woods, teak outdoor furniture is usually more expensive than cedar for several reasons. Firstly, it is the harder of the two and is more durable than cedar in an outdoor environment. Secondly, it is more expensive to harvest and is not as readily available as cedar. Thirdly, its maintenance-free nature and robustness make it a more valuable wood.
