Wrought Iron chairs make for a great up scale garden design addition.
Creating a “Vintage Look” is the advantage that wrought iron presents … a heavier historical feel, chairs, tables and benches that one would find in a Victorian garden in the 1800-1900’s.
Antique steel wrought chairs are harder to come by …many rust away when left outdoors in the rain. Wrought iron furniture is heavy and readily resists blowing over in heavy winds, unlike the basic plastic patio chairs.
Good part is that wrought iron chairs are available cast in aluminium, although not as heavy as the old wrought iron furniture, they are stable in the windy locations and do not rust on the legs bottoms which can stain stone and interlocking patios.
Adding, as in the photos above, a small matching table allows you have a sweet little spot for a morning cup of coffee .. or evening drink with a friend.
