What bench and stool options are available?


Benches are very versatile, so get creative with what you buy and how you use them. Garden stools and smaller pieces work well as side chairs, but they also can function as an end table or art pedestal on your patio, porch or deck. Picnic benches work around an outdoor dining table, or they can be placed in a garden or along a pathway. No front porch would be complete without a glider and rocking bench, while outdoor ottomans can work as foot stools.

What bench material works best outdoors?


Since the furniture will be spending most of its time outside, you want to invest in waterproof and weatherproof materials. While that should be your first consideration, you should also keep in mind what works with your modern style preference. Teak, metal and ceramic are popular contemporary choices, while wood and cast iron are often traditional, especially when paired with ornate details and designs. Plastic and aluminum pieces are often more affordable, though not as heavy duty as other materials.
