At one time swimming pool furniture consisted of a plastic green or white table and umbrella sets. Today, pool furniture is widely available in materials such as teak, cedar, wrought iron, pine, aluminum, wicker and rattan, bamboo and in various metal and wood combinations to suit any pool deck design. When choosing furniture to grace your pool deck remember that durable, water resistant and sun resistant pool furniture will last longer. And remember to figure sun protection into your pool furnishings such as a table umbrella or sunshades. Popular pool furnishings include pool lounge chairs, settees and Adirondeck chairs for reading and sunbathing; hammocks for napping; and rolling tables or tea carts for dining and cocktails.
