Modern homes 'need an aluminium garden furniture set'

25/10/2010 Contemporary aluminium garden furniture is a "much more attractive" option than the traditional patio offerings of the past, according to one expert.

Writing for the ArchVisionModels blog, Gills Tiens claimed that the "flimsy" lawn chairs and loungers of yesteryear were no longer suitable to those seeking outdoor furniture to complement their modern home.

The blogger went on to say that the 21st century aluminium garden furniture set is both hardy and practical, making it the ideal choice for British gardens, which often need to adapt to changing weather conditions.

"It's still lightweight but it is now more durable and sturdy. This means that it is easily moved around. So you have some flexibility when it comes to changing the look of your garden," the writer explained.

Those considering an aluminium garden furniture set were also advised to buy a few brightly-coloured cushions to add a further touch of style to their backyard.
