About Powder Coated Aluminium Furniture

Powder coated aluminium is our material of choice for our lightest weight outdoor furniture. It is gorgeous! The base aluminium is coated with polyester micro particles in colours that perfectly complement the furniture’s other attributes; the resulting finish keeps the furniture looking like new for many years. Even though Aluminium doesn’t rust like steel can (picture black and orange exposed steel), powder-coating offers the same oxidation protection as on our steel furniture.

How to Care for your Powder-Coated Aluminium Furniture

Powder-Coated Aluminium is an excellent choice for outdoor furniture, because of its good looks and durability. Powder coating is durable for outdoor furniture, but it isn’t a hard coating, relatively speaking. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS. Specifically, with powder-coating you won’t need abrasives anyway. The finish is smooth and resistant to dirt and debris. For specific care instructions for powder-coated aluminium, click through the following link.

About Concrete Outdoor Furniture

Concrete outdoor furniture at Design Warehouse is a stunning statement for any outdoor space. Concrete is a natural product and as such will have fine lines and cracking. This is similar to concrete used internally in building and restaurant floors, outdoor driveways and wall finishes. This is the nature of natural concrete, and in no way does this affect the durability or integrity of the product. If you do not like the raw, natural appearance of concrete, and how it behaves as a material, then you may consider trying a different outdoor material. We’ve taken the best aesthetic qualities of concrete and combined it with innovative engineering and materials to create a perfect blend of livable, versatile and stunningly good-looking outdoor furniture. We use a composite blend of resin and concrete to create lighter weight, easier to use concrete furniture. This gives our concrete product offerings unique and beneficial characteristics for your outdoor space.

Do not use abrasive materials, excessive scrubbing or a high-pressure hose. And keep sharp objects away from the rope to avoid any cutting or fraying.

About Reclaimed Teak Furniture

Reclaimed teak is teakwood that has been used previously, but is re-purposed into gorgeous timber with a rustic feel and a lot of character. Often teak is reclaimed from flooring, large structural timbers and commercial buildings, which means that the reclaimed wood is taken from larger format pieces that allow for very nice finished product. Because teak wood that we use in our reclaimed furniture is originally from old growth trees in Central Java, we can be sure that the wood is top quality. Teak wood in general is capable of lasting more than a century. The natural qualities of the wood make it impervious to all of the normal culprits of wood degradation.
