Patio furniture are supposed to be comfortable and good looking, they are the first type of furniture that your guests see before entering your house. It says a lot about your taste, and they can also be welcoming to a good sitting. Iron patio furniture are not that commonly used compared to plastic one, but it has its own unique uses and advantages that plastic can never offer. For example, iron furniture can be forged in any shape you like. You can custom make it as you want easily, but plastic is what you see is what you get. Although iron furniture is heavier, but it is most likely to stay where you put it. No strong wind will take it off its place, unless it is a hurricane.
The best places to use the iron patio furniture are the dry one, especially if they have low humidity levels. That is because iron may rust if it gets wet, or at least in humid weather. The iron furniture may also be used for amusement outdoors, if you have a large enough patio; you can put an iron swing sofa for more fun while relaxing in the sun. One of the things that people might think of as a bad thing is the need of paddings, as the iron is hard to sit on directly. But others look at it as a good thing, because you can use any color as paddings; or even use many colors and choose from them.
As we mentioned before, it is hard to sit directly on iron patio furniture. The set itself would be very hard and it would cause pain if sat on for a long period of time. That is why it needs paddings or cushions in order to be enjoyed right, and that is a great designing advantage. You can use different colors for the paddings, and also use as many of them as you like. One great idea is having different paddings and cushions for every season like white for winter, green for spring, yellow for summer and brown for autumn.
