Outdoor living spaces are becoming increasingly popular, and homeowners are looking for ways to make their outdoor areas more comfortable and inviting. One of the essential factors in creating a welcoming outdoor living space is choosing the right furniture. Wood patio furniture is an excellent choice for outdoor areas due to its durability, aesthetics, sustainability, comfort, and value. 

Creating a comfortable and inviting outdoor space is easy with RST Brands' wood patio furniture. Our high-quality wood furniture is designed to withstand the elements and provide lasting comfort and style. In this article, we'll discuss the top five reasons why RST Brands' wood patio furniture is the perfect choice for your outdoor living area.


Wood patio furniture is incredibly durable and can withstand the elements. Wood is a natural material with inherent strength and resilience, making it ideal for outdoor furniture exposed to rain, wind, and sunlight. Unlike other materials, such as plastic or metal, wood patio furniture does not become brittle or crack when exposed to extreme temperatures.

One of the significant benefits of wood patio furniture is its ability to last for many years with proper care and maintenance. Regular cleaning, oiling, and applying a protective coating, such as varnish or sealant, can help to prevent rotting, warping, and cracking. Additionally, storing your furniture in a dry and covered area during winter can protect it from the elements.


Wood patio furniture has a natural and timeless look that can enhance the beauty of your outdoor space. The warm and inviting tones of wood can complement the natural surroundings, creating a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. Additionally, wood furniture comes in a wide range of colors and styles, making it easy to find pieces that complement your existing décor.

One of the significant advantages of wood furniture is its versatility. Wood furniture can be painted or stained to match any color scheme, making it an excellent choice for those who want to create a unique look in their outdoor space. Whether you prefer a classic, rustic, or modern style, wood furniture can be customized to fit your taste.


Many types of wood used for patio furniture, such as teak and cedar, are sustainably harvested and renewable resources. Choosing wood furniture is an eco-friendly choice that helps reduce the impact on the environment. Additionally, wood furniture can be recycled or repurposed, making it a more sustainable option than other materials.

At RST Brands, we are committed to sustainability and responsible sourcing. That's why we use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified products in our wood patio furniture. This certification ensures that the wood used in the furniture has been sourced from responsibly managed forests that meet strict environmental, social, and economic standards.

Choosing FSC-certified products helps to promote sustainable forest management and protect the biodiversity of forests. Additionally, it helps to support the rights and well-being of the people and communities that depend on those forests.


Wood patio furniture is comfortable to sit on and provides a relaxing outdoor experience. The natural flexibility of wood can create a comfortable seat that contours to the shape of your body. Additionally, wood furniture is easy to add cushions and pillows for extra comfort, making it an ideal choice for lounging and entertaining outdoors.

One type of wood that is particularly known for its comfort is acacia wood. Acacia wood is a hardwood that has a smooth and even texture, making it comfortable to sit on without the need for cushions. The natural oils in the wood also help to resist water and prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

When selecting cushions for your wood furniture, it is essential to choose materials that are specifically designed for outdoor use. These materials are designed to withstand the elements and prevent mold and mildew growth. RST Brands offers a variety of outdoor cushions and pillows that are designed to match our wood furniture, providing an extra level of comfort and style to your outdoor living area.


While wood patio furniture may initially cost more than some other materials, its durability and longevity make it a good long-term investment. Additionally, its timeless style means you won't have to replace it as often as other types of furniture, saving you money in the long run.

One type of wood that is particularly known for its durability and value is eucalyptus wood. Eucalyptus wood is a hardwood that is naturally resistant to insects, rot, and decay. This makes it an ideal choice for outdoor furniture that will be exposed to the elements.

Eucalyptus wood patio furniture is also a sustainable and eco-friendly choice. Eucalyptus trees are fast-growing and have a low environmental impact compared to other types of wood. Also, eucalyptus wood can be easily recycled or repurposed, making it more sustainable than other materials.

Wood patio furniture, including eucalyptus wood furniture, also holds its value well and can be resold for a reasonable price. As long as the furniture is well-maintained, it can be a worthwhile investment that adds value to your home.
