Default Patio Furniture

Does anyone know of an alternativein patio furniture to the stuff they sell at Home Depot, Lowes, Sam's, Wal-mart, etc. I'm looking for something this was perhaps handcrafted here in the United States of aluminum, iron or wood.

Any ideas or leads?

Might take a look at Sears, I was in the store here in town tonight and they had a pretty good selection.

Smith and Hawken - its not cheap. We have the teak and my wife likes it brown not gray - we were supposed to alternate but somehow it didn't get done this winter when its cooler out so I get to do it again in the summer months. I wish we had gotten metal.

An American grown teak tree might be kind of hard to find.

Whatever you get, I would go with something maintenance free. For whatever reason, the chairs with cushions seem to be popular right now. What a PITA gathering up all the cushions every time it rains. All our stuff has aluminum frames with a quick drying fabric stretched between. Maintenance free looks great after 3 years, easy to clean, and dry 20 minutes after it rains.

I bought the wicker stuff from Target for my parents. Made in China (as is everything), and the hardware was bent, and holes and bolts did not line up. It is not worth any savings in my view. Been there.

You guys don't miss a thing! A good sense of humor is way better than any porch furniture, even if it hurts your arse sometimes.

I have a set of Telescopic that's going on it's 19th year. It was a wedding present. Stuff is rock solid still. I know it's still made and it's also not any cheaper.

Of course I'd love a teak set but like the teak on a boat, it's needs love to often. I have limited teak on the boat, I want to sit, drink and eat on my bluestone patio, not work on it. That's why it's rock.
