Wrought Iron: Hammering Out the Details
Here's the lap of luxury
Wrought iron dining sets are a classic for good reason: those breezy curving legs and indomitable strength are ideal for outdoor dining. When choosing your outdoor patio furniture, wrought iron is the first place you ought to look.
Wrought iron is magically strong. When heated and hammered into graceful curves and scrolls, the metal develops a grain much like wood. This grain lets the metal have a comfortable amount of flex without bending. This quality gives wrought iron furniture an easy comfort that many people find surprising for metal furniture. Sit on a stone bench and you'll feel the difference that tiny bit of flex makes.
Once that wrought iron has cooled, it becomes the strongest, most durable material for outdoor dining without looking bulky. Your patio table and chairs look light and graceful as birds, but can hold an elephant.
Wrought iron doesn't sag. It can't chip, splinter or crack. It never fades and doesn't rot. It's crazy strong. No wonder it's the go-to for outdoor dining sets.
If you know where to look, you'll be able to see which wrought iron dining sets are the best. For starters, check the welds where pieces join. Quality craftsmen create graceful, even welds, then file them smooth so they blend with the graceful lines of the table or chair. If the weld looks like someone stuck a wad of gum in it, the builder skipped that step.
Iron is iron, but coatings vary. This is especially important since iron can rust over time if not protected. Better wrought iron patio sets are coated with a sealer, then electrostatically sprayed with a powdercoating. The electrostatic process magnetizes the paint, guaranteeing that every part of the metal gets a smooth, even coat with no drips or bare spots. Then it's all baked on, creating a hard-as-nails finish. (Actually, that's how some nails are finished.) The result is a scratch-resistant, weather-loving finish with a pleasing, flat-black satin look that's exactly what you hope for in wrought iron furniture.
While the comfort of wrought iron chairs is legendary, nothing beats a padded cushion on top. Look for cushions that tie on, made from outdoor fabric like Sunbrella or GeoBella that won't rot, mildew or fade in the sun.
To top it all off
You'll find more options than ever to top off your wrought iron dining table. Clear plastic tops are light and look nice, but they can scratch over time and may look cloudy after too much sun. Glass table tops are weather-loving and impervious to spills and stains. A textured glass top will hide smudges and fingerprints so you don't feel the need to polish it as often.
Mosaic table tops add refreshing color to your dining set. Your wrought iron table is going to last a long time, so skip the plastic imitations and go for real slate, glass or marble mosaics, set in grout. You'll thank yourself in ten years, when your patio furniture looks better than ever.
With all that colorful tabletop temptation, don't overlook the classic metal mesh top. If you live where it's hot and humid, where every bit of breeze is precious, open-weave table tops feel cooler because they don't trap air around your legs. Go barefoot and show off that pretty pedicure.
Spend a few extra minutes inspecting your future wrought iron dining set and you'll earn years of extra enjoyment. Sit back, put your feet up and enjoy shopping!"
