Material guide outdoor furniture

Not every piece of furniture is suitable for outdoor use: Materials for outdoor furniture must have certain properties to meet the requirements for outdoor use.

Solid wood

  • Stable, robust and durable
  • Wide choice of wood species and natural or colored finishes
  • Sturdy & durable

Since solid wood is a natural material, different grains and knots may be visible. Each piece of solid wood furniture is therefore a unique and unmistakable piece.

Care instructions

Wipe with a damp, soft cloth. Dry quickly. Please note: Some types of wood may change color over time under the influence of UV rays

Did you know that…?

Some types of wood can change their color over time under the influence of UV radiation. This is not a sign of inferior quality, but due to the natural material and underlines the individuality of your piece of furniture.

Teak wood

  • Weather resistant
  • Robust & Durable

Teak is a durable, high-quality plantation wood that is well-suited for outdoor restaurant furniture because of its unique stability and resilience.

Care instructions

Teak has a naturally high oil content, which allows it to withstand extreme weather conditions without much maintenance. Teak furniture should be stored under cover during the winter. Avoid storing this furniture in heated rooms. Here the wood dries out quickly. We recommend regular tightening of the screws.


Stühle aus Batyline


  • Extremely tear & abrasion resistant
  • Especially water & dirt repellent
  • Dimensionally stable

BATYLINE® is a high quality PVC coated micro mesh fabric. The material is characterized by an air-permeable, resistant and easy-care fiber fabric structure that is particularly tear-resistant. It is resistant to UV radiation, does not deform and is easy to clean. Because of its structure, the fabric dries very quickly.

Care instructions

BATYLINE® can be cleaned with soapy water. A sponge with water is sufficient in most cases. Scouring and bleaching agents must be avoided!


Outdoor Stühle aus Polypropylen


  • Durable & robust
  • Resistant to weather & environmental influences
  • Antistatic
  • Recyclable

Polypropylene is a very durable and reliable plastic and is characterized by high strength.

Care instructions

Plastic furniture should be cleaned occasionally with water and a mild detergent. Strong agents can attack the plastic surface. Dirt can easily accumulate in these areas and sun or light exposure can permanently change the color of the product.


Terrasse mit Aluminium Outdoor Möbeln


  • Weather resistant
  • Light and strong
  • Absolutely corrosion resistant

Aluminum furniture is lightweight and therefore super handy to transport. At the same time, they are very sturdy and can be left outside even in the rain without any problems, optimal also for regions by the sea.

Care instructions

Furniture made of aluminum does not require any special care. Clear water or a gentle lye together with a soft cloth are perfectly sufficient for cleaning the surfaces.

Artificial wicker

  • Weather & UV resistant
  • Color fast
  • Particularly durable

Artificial wicker is made of a man-made fiber that is characterized by high flexibility and tear resistance. The fibers are dyed throughout, eliminating color changes over time. They do not absorb moisture and the furniture is quickly dry after a rain shower. Artificial wicker is stain resistant and insensitive to high temperature fluctuations.

Care instructions

Dirt can be easily removed with a damp cloth or a soft brush and possibly some normal dishwashing liquid. Under no circumstances should hard brushes be used. This can damage the surface and there is a risk that the material will become brittle after a while

Our tip

Store your wicker furniture in winter in a protected indoor space or use protective covers. This will prolong the life and keep your furniture beautiful for a long time.

Tische und Bänke mit Stahlgestell auf einer Holzterrasse


  • Very stable and durable
  • Very easy to clean and maintain

Very sturdy metal that can be coated with different surface methods. For outdoor use, the surface must be galvanized before powder coating. This provides adequate protection against corrosion. With stainless steel, there are different quality levels, which are suitable for and which are not suitable for outdoor use.

Care instructions

Clean occasionally with water and mild soap and dry quickly.

Our tip

Of course, outdoor furniture can also be used indoors, but it is nicer to equip the guest room with furniture adapted to the interior.
