The Summer Classics Difference
Summer Classics Outdoor Furniture stands out. It is exciting and unexpected, timeless yet fashionable. Our designers are inspired to create sophisitcated products by combining traditional craftsmanship with innovative usage of diverse materials. In a disposable culture, this makes Summer Classics a purchase for generations.
Each of our metal frames are pre-finished with a nano ceramic pre-wash to increase paint adhesion. This important step pits the metal surface creating ten times the surface area for the powder coat of paint to bond to. All finishes are a high-solids polyester, architectural grade powder coat, 10 times thicker than wet coat paint. The result is a paint finish that will last far longer than traditional powder coat processes.
Superior grade molten aluminum alloy is hand-poured into a mold made from exceptionally detailed woodcarvings. Each casting is hand polished to provide a smooth, finished surface for painting. After a multi-step cleaning process, the furniture receives a baked-on powder paint coat, much thicker and harder than conventional wet paint, followed by a hand-applied antique accent.
Features heavy, .65mm wall thickness tubing, strengthened at stress points with interior wall supports and galvanized steel inserts, triple hand polished 360° welds, and a high-solids polyester, powder-coated finish, ten times thicker than wet-coat paint. Available in 6 different finishes our wrought aluminum products are as versatile as they are functional.
At Summer Classics, we use a 304 grade stainless steel that has a high chromium and nickel content. This austenitic steel has both strength and corrosion resistance, making it ideal for a long life in outdoor applications. Our stainless steel receives 360 degree welds that are hand polished for maximum durability and a finished look.
N-dura™ Ultra High UV Resistant Resin Wicker
The most realistic and extensive UV resistant protocol in the industry, resin wicker is guaranteed to not experience any significant color change for 5 years.

The finest teak in the world was sought out to design our wooden furniture pieces. Teak Collections feature plantation grown high quality teak frames with mortise and tenon construction. All of our Teak Collections are available in Natural Teak and our Oyster Teak finish, which was designed to mimic the silvery grey patina teak develops as it ages.
