Garden furniture, also called patio furniture, is a type of furniture specifically designed for outdoor use. It is typically made of weather resistant materials.


The oldest surviving examples of patio furniture were found in the gardens of Pompeii. They included marble tables and chairs. A wide range of patio furniture is now manufactured and distributed worldwide. Chairs, tables, and long chairs referred to as chaise lounges are common items. The materials used to manufacture modern patio furniture include stones, metals, vinyl, plastics, glass, treated and untreated woods.


Teak; an untreated wood that weather very well, is an excellent material from which to manufacture patio furniture, teak outdoor furniture, teak garden furniture and teak benches.
