The outdoors, like the indoor one, now knows no borders. Open spaces, both public and private, are increasingly enriched by furniture and furnishing accessories, including tables and chairs. The latter, which have always been ideal accessories for the home and garden, in recent years have evolved into increasingly safe and sophisticated shapes and materials able to satisfy any need. The garden tables and chairs are made of many materials: wood, iron, concrete, wicker, plastic. Some materials are cheaper than others, but the choice will always be made on the basis of the style of the garden or your aesthetic tastes.

Anodized iron tables and chairs are often foldable and transportable furniture, suitable for out-of-town picnics. The iron furniture must be kept away from external agents and perhaps protected with sheets when not in use. Periodically it is also necessary to resort to specific paints that hide traces of oxidation. The concrete tables and chairs are made with the key building material. It is therefore a question of real masonry works. The concrete can then be painted or tiled. Concrete tables are ideal in country houses always made with masonry kitchens.
