Teak wood is not just for high-end patio furniture. It can also be for shipbuilding, door and window frames, wharves, bridges, flooring, paneling, and Venetian blinds. Teak refers specifically to the wood and its characteristic color, which ranges from olive to yellowish gray or light brown. Teak furniture dates back prior to the 19th century. The Chinese exported Teak to Europe.
Wicker, rattan and bamboo furniture come a long way from the East, as far as Egypt and China. Furniture made of these organic materials are noted for their comfort, lightness, and intricate woven designs. Recently, Hollywood star Brad Pitt has even bought a woven rattan bed shaped like a boat, designed by Filipino designer Kenneth Cobonpue.
If you have a large patio with plenty of room, you may want to consider getting a entire patio furniture set with multiple pieces. Sets may include chairs, coffee tables, sofas, lounges and/or sun beds. With so many components to choose from in the patio furniture realm, mixing and matching sets is easy. You and your guest will always feel comfortable moving from a chair to a lounge for example after a meal. Having a conversation around the table while drinking beverages, then getting cozy with your spouse on a sofa is another ideal situation. Remember, as long as you have the space you can maintain several different types of furniture. For smaller sized patios such as those included with condos and apartment complexes, you will have to compromise on what you get. Unless you have more space indoors to store extra patio furniture, you may want to get a table and chair set rather than sun beds and a sofa. Couples with no children will find a few chairs and a coffee table suits them just fine in most cases.
