Elegant, Wind-Proof Patio Furniture

Garden furniture that stays put in the wind is made from iron or metal with a wide-open mesh. Outdoor furniture that has a solid surface, even if it is lightweight and diaphanous, can turn your chairs and tables into dangerous kites during windstorms of 30 mph or higher. So, instead of the wind blowing your chairs about the patio, it passes right through them. Keep your cushions from flying and fading by simply stacking them indoors when not in use on the terrace.

Elegant Outdoor Furniture

Plastic furniture is sometimes all right indoors, especially if it is in the high-styled modern idiom, and was created by or emulates that of 1950s and 1960s designers such as Eero Saarinen. But outdoors, one ideally will have garden or patio furniture made from wrought iron or of teak-wood, which will not deteriorate from exposure to the elements. Wooden and iron furniture exists in perfect harmony with landscaping and nature, especially when made in greens, browns, and other earth-tones.
Here is my Princeton, New Jersey garden courtyard, where I had outdoor dining furniture by the now-defunct, elegant wrought-iron furniture company Lyon-Shaw, and a smaller chat-table in iron, wicker and tile, by Alfresco Home.

My Elegant Garden

This section of my old gardens had a design that was both structured and naturally flowing. In this photograph, tasteful Lyon-Shaw wrought iron patio furniture and a few oil-torches were set up for a party. ©M-J de Mesterton
