In today’s update we rounded out the list a bit more by adding in the Darlee Elisabeth Chaise Lounge, which come in a set of two that are each outfitted with sesame-colored polyester cushions and two wheels for portability. Like some of the others on the list, these chaise lounges feature an elegant antique bronze finish and a whimsical lattice seat design. Their durable stainless steel hardware holds up well to the elements, and the nylon covers on the feet will help protect the surface of your patio or deck. The TheWorldOfPatio Grand Tuscany 7 Piece also comes on board, and is a convenient solution for anyone looking for a table and chairs along with a built-in, easy-to-use propane fire pit. Included are six chairs with Sunbrella linen cushions, and the 52-inch tabletop has a removable cover that can convert it into a standard table when you don't have a fire going. This sturdy set features a rust-resistant construction and conveniently requires very little assembly. To make room for today’s two new additions, we removed the Darlee Ocean View, which is currently unavailable, as well as the Christopher Knight Home Hallandale, which is highly similar to the Christopher Knight Home Odena, other than the shape of the table.
We also moved the Darlee St. Cruz into a more prominent spot on the list, as it has a lot to offer in terms of comfort and durability. It boasts a spacious tabletop with a 30-inch removable lazy Susan, and eight chairs with orange cushions that add a splash of color to your deck or patio environment. For a similar enough set, but smaller, check out the Christopher Knight Home Odena, which comes with four chairs and a sturdy square table. It's coated to stand up to the elements well, which makes it suitable for poolside placement. It won’t likely scratch the ground or floor it’s placed upon, thanks to the protective covering on the feet.

Cast aluminum is one of the most popular materials for outdoor furniture. It’s known for being lightweight, yet strong, and easy to clean. It is pricey compared to wood and steel alternatives, but a quality set can last for decades. As our list reflects, sets come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Add in a fire pit table, and you’ve got yourself a comfortable backyard setup that’s ideal for entertaining or just kicking back after a long day of work.
Coming on board is the Christopher Knight Home Odena, which you’ll enjoy for years, thanks to its weatherproof build, which also makes it great for poolside placement. Its handsome hammered bronze finish is neutral enough to match any decor to which you add it, and its anti-scratch bottom material will help to protect your flooring if you decide to move it around. It’s easy to assemble and is backed by a 30-day warranty.
The Coastlink Furniture Nevada makes it way off of the list, as it is unavailable at this time.
