MJN & Associates Interiors may be an interior design firm, but that doesn’t mean we’re confined to the indoors. We have also helped many North Atlanta homeowners create beautiful outdoor spaces, and we carry a range of high-end outdoor furniture lines to help you achieve the look you want.

When it comes to choosing outdoor furniture, it’s important to consider the style of your home (Colonial, Tudor, mid-century modern, cottage, etc.), as well as your personal style and maintenance preferences. Take a look at the most prevalent types of outdoor furniture  and what sets each of them apart.


Teak outdoor furniture is warm, natural, and versatile depending on the style. More formal versions can work perfectly in an English garden setting, while more contemporary silhouettes are great for earthy, casual settings.

Aluminum and stainless steel

This type of outdoor furniture is often very contemporary in style, so if you want a sleek, minimalistic look, aluminum or stainless steel could be the way to go. Aluminum furnishings are lightweight, making them perfect for those who like to rearrange the space for entertaining, and they  work well in outdoor rooms because they resist corrosion.

Wicker is another material that offers a more natural feel. It is often associated with old-fashioned front porches and little old ladies, but there are some great brands creating updated, contemporary versions.

Wrought Iron

Definitely one of the most traditional choices, wrought iron furniture is perfect for traditional home styles. It’s quite heavy, so it’s a good choice for windy areas.
