Aluminum is ideal for outdoor use
If you're looking for modern outdoor furniture, then you should consider collections with aluminum frames. This lightweight metal, whether extruded or cast aluminum, is strong enough to withstand both residential and commercial use. Furniture designers love aluminum, because it can be worked into sophisticated contemporary shapes, allowing them to create memorable chaise lounges, streamlined patio dining tables and more. You'll love its low maintenance and high resistance to rust. It does heat up, so you'll want to consider all-weather seat cushions for added comfort.
Powder-coated, colorfast protection
Despite being naturally weather-resistant, aluminum is at its best when protected by a polyester powder-coating. This process toughens it against damaging rain, cold and scratching. It also enables you to add color to the finishing process. Sleek metallic silver is a chic look for stainless steel, but it's nice to have matte and gloss options like black, white, grey and taupe to coordinate with current neutral color palettes or vibrant colors to make a bold statement. The powder-coating retains the color under extended exposure to the sun and salt air, which typically play havoc with painted metal or less resilient finishes. So, your aluminum outdoor furniture will last and look great for years.
