The chairs are usually made to be used as both sitting and reclining chairs and they normally come with together with high quality cushions. The chairs can be used to enjoy a meal at the table or they can double as a bed to have a nap in the shade or do some tanning the sun.

Plastic is generally known to be less durable than other materials. Although some people claim that this is not the case, it is pretty clear that hardwood garden furniture and modern metal garden furniture will last longer than plastic furniture. Naturally, this durability comes with a bigger price tag.
If you have the money to spend on it, then a great set of wooden garden furniture will become one of your most prized possessions in the garden. Teak is a type of wood that requires very little maintenance, although if you do not like the weathered look, you will need to treat the wood from time to time.
