Ackley Wooden Garden Furniture is a beautiful, hand-crafted acacia wood furniture set with sturdy construction that complements any outdoor space.

The set features six foldable chairs, an LED premium parasol, and one elegantly finished table.

The table has a rich brown colour and appealing natural grain that'll look great against any backdrop, be it on grassy lawns in springtime or under an aluminium patio gazebo during winters.

You can mount your parasol to this table and seamlessly blend it into the set's design, all while protecting you from the sun.

The chairs are foldable, making it easier to stash them in your shed when not in use and saving you more storage space.

The fact that the furniture is made of acacia wood means that you'll enjoy durable patio furniture.

Acacia wood has long been considered one of the best materials for making outdoor furniture. This is because it’s dense, weather-resistant, durable and sustainably grown.

The table below shows how acacia wood furniture compares with other materials used to make patio furniture.

Feature Acacia Synthetic Resin Wrought Iron
Durability Highly durable Durable Durable
Weather perseverance Resistant to moisture and wind Waterproof, resistant to sun and wind Rusts when exposed to moisture
Comfort Comfortable with or without cushions Comfortable Comfortable but gets hot on sunny days and cold at winters
Aesthetics Beautiful and matches any backdrop Attractive Attractive
Maintenance Needs less maintenance Does not need any maintenance Needs constant painting to prevent it from rusting
Eco-friendliness Environmentally-friendly and can be sustainably sourced Synthetic resins like fibreglass resin are not biodegradable, making them unfriendly to the environment Can be recycled

Did we mention how beautiful this set is? Its sleek dark wood appearance makes it perfect for any modern patio decorating style, whether you prefer a minimalist chic or a super-stylish outdoor setting.


2 - Eight-Seater Rattan Cube Outdoor Dining Set

The Rattan Cube Outdoor Dining Set is the best furniture during summers. It's lightweight, easy to maintain, resistant to UV rays and, best of all, it's aesthetically pleasing.

When compared to other materials, synthetic rattan is durable, which makes it the best for outdoor furniture.

Here’s why:

  • Rattan is waterproof unlike materials like metal and wood which are both affected by moisture. Metal furniture rusts when exposed to moisture while wood expands and changes shape.
  • Rattan does not crack or fade away when exposed to sunlight, unlike plastic.
  • Rattan is very light, which makes it easy to move around. Iron and wood, on the other hand, are dense and heavy.

Our Rattan Cube Outdoor Dining Set is made of a high-quality rattan woven into a sturdy and attractive frame.

The set includes a 111 x 111 x 74 cm tempered glass table top. Tempered glass is strong and resistant to breakage, and in case of a spill, glass is easy to clean. When paired with a parasol, it creates a sophisticated look to your patio furniture while also protecting you from the hot sun.

The furniture also features four chairs and four rattan footstools, with seat cushions of 5 cm thick foam and polyester covers. This provides comfort, and the added footstools provide a perfect spot for stretching your legs and putting your feet up.

The chairs and footstools can easily be stacked under the table when not in use, making them perfect for smaller yards. To give your yard a strikingly gorgeous appearance, have a look at this piece that offers decor ideas for rattan outdoor furniture.

So if you're looking for patio furniture that’ll stand up against wear and tear over time, this furniture set is just what you need.

When picking outdoor furniture, you need to consider the space of your yard, durability, comfort and aesthetics. Luckily, the Maia Garden Corner Sofa checks all the factors on your list.

The furniture has an elegant design that will add beauty to any patio setting, while also providing comfortable seating for entertaining guests or relaxing with friends on warm summer evenings.

The sofa is made from a durable, brawny steel frame that can withstand a harsh environment, so you won't have to worry about rust or other weather-related deterioration.

The sofa has an L-shaped design, which means it can fit in the corners of your patio without taking up too much space. This provides an attractive way to maximise seating outdoors while still allowing plenty of room for people walking on the patio.

One end of the sofa features a steel armrest that provides a supportive position for your arms and eases muscle tension.

The other end has a table that’s ideal for placing drinks, snacks or your favourite book.

The garden sofa also comes with the following:

  • A wooden coffee table that provides more space for your snacks and drinks
  • Canvas cushions that complement the entire set
  • A parasol that protects you from intense sunlight

Expert Tip: It’s best to put the Maia Garden Corner Sofa at the corner of your yard where there will be less foot traffic. This ensures that you don’t trip on other people’s feet as you walk past the patio.
