If you live in Santa Fe, Taos, or any other northern New Mexico community where the climate can be hot and dry during the day but cold and rainy at night, it's important to choose outdoor patio furniture that is durable and can withstand the elements.
In this article we look into materials best suited for our unique New Mexico climate and conditions, but you can also stop by The Firebird for a personal outdoor living consultation with one of our trained experts who will guide you to the best options for your outdoor space.
Here are some materials that may be well-suited for our region:
Synthetic wicker is made from polyethylene resin and is designed to look and feel like natural wicker. It's resistant to moisture, mold, and mildew.
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) lumber is an all-weather material that does not require sealing, painting, or staining. It will not rot or splinter, and contains superior UV inhibitors that resist fading. Additionally, HDPE is not affected by most corrosive substances and will not absorb moisture.
Aluminum is a lightweight and durable material that is resistant to rust and corrosion, making it a good choice for outdoor furniture in areas like northern New Mexico with extreme temperature fluctuations. It's also easy to clean and maintain.
What fabric is best for outdoor cushions?
Outdoor patio furniture cushions made of fabrics whose fibers are saturated with color and UV-stabilized pigments are best to use in the wildly diverse weather conditions of northern New Mexico, including extreme sunlight. That is why The FIrebird’s outdoor furniture cushions are manufactured in the USA and are made from durable, 100% solution dyed acrylic fabrics from Sunbrella© and Outdura©, designed to be beautiful and for a long life span.
