Outdoor furniture is an essential component of Life Built Outdoors. It’s where you relax after a long day, catch up with loved ones, and create cherished memories in your outdoor spaces. As patio furniture is such an integral part of outdoor living, we recommend investing in high-quality pieces that are made to last.

With nearly 20 years of experience in the outdoor furniture industry, we are confident in the brands we choose to sell to our customers—brands known for their style and durability. Below, we’ve highlighted three of our most trusted companies for outdoor furniture.

O.W. Lee

In 1947, Oddist W. Lee began manufacturing wrought iron gates for private estates in Pasadena, California. After seeing his gate designs, many local furniture store owners requested that he use his skills to produce patio furniture. By 1954, The O.W. Lee Company transitioned to designing fine, hand-crafted furnishings.

Today, O.W. Lee produces casual seating and dining, portable fire pits, and accessories. For superior strength and durability, O.W. Lee’s products are expertly crafted with the highest quality carbon steel, galvanized steel, and 6061 alloy aluminum. As their meticulous welding techniques and water-resistant finishes guard against corrosion, these pieces can hold up for generations. 

In addition to being highly durable, O.W. Lee’s products are customizable. They offer a variety of fabrics and finishes to choose from, ensuring that each piece can complement your established style.

In 1906, Marshall B. Lloyd opened the Lloyd Manufacturing Company in Menominee, Michigan. Using kraft paper and metal wire, Marshall developed the Lloyd Loom, a unique process for creating fine woven furniture.

Today, the company operates under the name Lloyd Flanders, producing a wide range of seating and dining products made from natural-fiber wicker, woven vinyl, and premium teak. Their Lloyd Loom process has been modified over the years to maximize product performance and longevity while maintaining a timeless appearance. Beautiful and durable, their products are woven for life.

Homecrest Outdoor Living

Homecrest originated in Wadena, Minnesota in 1953 when its founders, Mert Bottemiller and Al Englemann, partnered to design ottomans. By 1956, they had developed and patented the first swivel rocker mechanism, which brought their brand national popularity. Since then, Homecrest has created sophisticated outdoor furniture products—combining classic design with contemporary trends.

Today, they offer 30 collections of affordable, long-lasting furnishings, including tables, chairs, sofas, ottomans, and stools. Homecrest’s pieces are made from aluminum and steel, making them durable and low-maintenance.
