Contemporary Outdoor Furniture Materials

by The Quotely The Quotely

The use and design of outdoor furniture has changed a lot over time. Outdoor furniture should never be boring and simply functional. Now, people consider their garden, patio, or backyard as an important element of their living space that they can design to be enjoyed in the best way possible. This means there is an increased interest in contemporary furniture Brisbane, Melbourne & Perth and beyond.

People are looking for more and more options in outdoor furniture. Broadening their taste in materials, colours, and more. They also look for the type of furniture that is capable of entertaining as well as enjoying on one's own. So as our modern lives make way for contemporary outdoor furniture, here are the materials we’re loving:


Aluminium is the most popular choice of a lot of people when it comes to outdoor furniture. The reason is the flexibility it provides in the design and shape of furniture. Another great advantage of aluminium is that it is lightweight without compromising any of its strength. This quality enables the furniture made from aluminium to be mobile and last for a longer time. It can also be combined with other materials like resin, wicker, or canvas to create comfortable furniture that is also able to survive severe weather conditions as well.


Wood is another great option when it comes to choosing a contemporary outdoor furniture setting. However, it should be noticed that there are specific types of woods that are used for the manufacture of lasting outdoor furniture. These different types of timbers can also be combined with different types of finishes to ensure they stay looking fresher for longer. Wood can be constructed into a variety of shapes and sizes. It also fits in with natural surrounds. It is also a renewable, sustainable material choice.


It is worth noting that wicker involves a technique of making furniture using multiple natural and artificial materials from cane to PVC. Rattan is one of the natural materials used for this purpose. The durability of this type of furniture depends on the durability of the material used for the manufacture. In the case of rattan, if the furniture is looked after carefully it could be used for several years. If you live somewhere that experiences heavy rain or high levels of humidity perhaps consider an artificial wicker that won't deteriorate from excess moisture.


Steel is another popular material used to manufacture contemporary outdoor furniture. Steel gives an incredibly modern visual appeal that lends perfectly to contemporary stylings. Like aluminium, it is also strong and durable. However, it is not as lightweight as aluminium. Therefore, it should be considered for more permanent settings and less mobile furniture pieces. Another important thing worth noting is that it should be placed in a location where it gets less sunlight as it tends to heat up with sun and should be used in comparatively cooler regions where the temperature is rather moderate.
