What to Look for When Selecting Patio Furniture

15 June, 2016

Tis the season for birthday party BBQs and backyard entertaining, which may have you rethinking your 1970s lawn chair hanging by a few threads and the cooler you’ve been using as outdoor seating.

Perks of adding a new set of patio furniture include enjoying your morning coffee while soaking up some rays, making memories with your family around an outdoor board game, and long conversations with friends under the stars. Embrace the summer spirit and make room on your patio for a new, durable, and stylish set of outdoor furniture from RST Brands.


The most important feature of your patio furniture set needs to be ample seating with a mixture of solo and group seating. Make your guests feel relaxed with versatile seating like single chairs or more cozy couch-style seating for 2-3 people at a time. Ottomans are a great addition to your furniture set which allow guests to put up their feet and they can also double as extra seating when the party gets crowded.


Patio furniture has to be durable and able to withstand Mother Nature’s wear and tear. You want a sturdy material that can handle the elements and won’t need replacing by the next summer. RST Brands offers heavy-duty powder-coated aluminum frame sets that are corrosion-free and maintain their style and comfort for years. The thick, breathable foam cushions not only contour to each sitter, but also are sturdy enough to avoid breakdown of support over time.

Low-Maintenance Outdoor Tablecloths & Seat Cushions

BBQs means food and food means spills. To be able to keep your furniture in top shape, you want a fabric that is easy to clean and repels all types of liquid. All-weather, fade-resistant fabric ensures that your guests are not sitting on soggy cushions. If spills do occur, cleaning is as easy as a simple cleanser and a hose. Just cover it for the winter and it will be like new every summer.


Guests won’t stay long enough to get to the s’mores if they are standing all night or stuck in an uncomfortable, flimsy chair. A perk of great patio furniture is allowing guests to feel at home and comfortable to lounge while enjoying your company. Foam cushions, proper back support, and deep chairs provide “the chair away from home” that will keep your guests relaxing and chatting well into the night.


When you’re hosting family, friends, or even people you’re meeting for the first time, you want to make a good impression. You want your patio furniture to have a little style, and with RST Brands, style doesn’t have to come at a high price. Accent pillows in bright and classy patterns are included in the purchase of your set. Try pairing your solid neutral cushions with bright patterned accent pillows for a look that will really wow your guests.

Choosing a great set of patio furniture from RST Brands comes with all the perks of being stylish and comfortable while requiring low maintenance and remaining durable. Create a backyard oasis to entertain and relax with your friends and family.
