Low Maintenance, High Style

Get the looks you love without the maintenance.

Summertime living is meant to be easy. Outdoor furniture is essential to making that happen. A lounge chair by the pool. Deep seating on a patio. We find that outdoor living is at its finest when it’s simple and low-maintenance. Less to maintain means more time for cookouts, pool parties and everything in-between. Here are our best picks for easy, high end outdoor furniture.


Woodard Outdoor Sofa

Woodard has deep seating perfect for entertaining guests. Offer everyone a soft seat without worrying about cushions that need to be stored away when not in use. Woodard outdoor seating features built-in self-draining technology with reticulated foam that allows you to enjoy the comfort of cushioned furniture without the maintenance. Bring on the summer showers, wet towels and big family get-togethers.


Tropitone pieces are found in resorts the world over, and there’s a reason why. They’re built to last and created to require as little upkeep as possible. Casual dining sets are perfect for poolside life.

Tropitone offers a padded sling option in its chaises, lounges and gliders, with quick drying material. Tropitone pairs perfectly with everyday relaxation.


What are summer nights for if not bringing everyone together to celebrate? If you’re needing extra outdoor or indoor surface space, Superstone from Summer Classics is the solution. Superstone is a highly versatile composite material. With the weight and beauty of stone and the durability of concrete, Superstone can be utilized on consoles, dining tables, coffee tables, and end tables. There are even three different finishes to choose from. A Superstone surface can be fitted with umbrella holes for outdoor living or even added to bar carts.
