Commercial Patio Furniture
Commercial Patio Furniture helps you merchandize your food and beverage offerings in an attractive way that draws customers to your restaurant, hotel, resort pool, or other business.
Choose from a wide variety of chairs, tables, lounge seating, and other outdoor furniture for your restaurant patio or other outdoor entertainment area.
Foldable and Stackable Options
Whether you operate a restaurant with outdoor dining, bar, or resort pool area, beautiful and comfortable commercial patio furniture is key to serving up a plush experience that boosts customer satisfaction.
The furniture your establishment features in its outdoor spaces needs to be able to stand up to heavy traffic and the elements, so look for durable designs that meet your aesthetic.
Foldable tables and stackable chairs are great for restaurants with limited space, as they’re easy to store away when not in use. They also come in handy for a crowded night when you need extra seating to cut down on wait times.
A cult-favorite interior hanging chair from Serena & Lily now comes in weatherproof outdoor materials, so you can bring its easy silhouette to your restaurant’s patio.
It’s sturdy enough for all-day lounging and features a double-width design to fit standard umbrella sizes. You can even add a throw and pillow for an added pop of color.
Weather Resistant Materials
No matter where your location is, there are certain environmental factors that all commercial patio furniture must be resistant to. These include water, sun, and wind.
Wind can damage lightweight outdoor furniture and cause it to shift uncomfortably in its place if not properly secured or moved.
Many of the materials used for commercial patio furniture are waterproof and resistant to weathering. Some are even eco-friendly, such as recycled plastic or high-quality synthetic resin wicker. When choosing synthetic wicker, be sure to choose High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) rather than cheaper PVC synthetics, as these will likely unravel or become brittle over time.
Wrought iron furniture is also highly resistant to element exposure, as is aluminum.
However, wrought iron can develop rust spots if it’s not treated or protected with a weather-resistant finish.
Commercial patio furniture offers a variety of customization options for every business. Whether the aim is to create a retro-hip mood, sophisticated elegance, or barefoot luxury resort style, there are furnishings that meet those design goals.
For an eco-friendly look, consider recycled plastic — also known as composite wood furniture — which has excellent weather resistance and provides the appearance of natural teak wood.
It can get hot in the sun though, so some cushion add-ons are recommended.
Aluminum is another highly durable material that holds up to rain and wind.
Other options include wrought iron for a vintage vibe, resin polycarbonate that resembles real wood, and HDPE wicker for a more modern appearance. Premium Sunbrella fabric is a stylish choice that resists moisture, mold, and mildew. It comes in a variety of colors to match any branding or aesthetic.
When storing the furniture for winter, be sure to protect it with a cover that can repel moisture and pests such as rodents.
Alternatively, store the furniture in a climate-controlled indoor storage area for the winter to keep it looking good for years. This is particularly important for wooden, wicker, and plastic furniture that can crack in freezing temperatures or rust when exposed to water for long periods of time.
Add a storage bench to your patio seating areas for dual-purpose seating and storage that will make the most of limited space.
These units have space for linens, small patio cushions and toys, pet supplies, or bathing items, and can even be used to hold baskets containing extra chairs for guests if you need more information.
