Best Manufacturers

The reason we have selected the manufacturers we carry is because they are the best at what they do whether the set is $500 or $5000.  They are honest, reliable, very quality conscious and they take care of any problems.

The best way to see all of your options is to come into our store. What we have in stock you can get right away.  We do lots of special orders and our very experienced and professional sales people can help you find the perfect set.  The best manufacturer for $2500 patio sets may not be the best value if you want to spend $600.  We can advise you as to who is the best in your price range for the style you want.

We have set up links to several manufactures for you to see a full array of styles.  It’s hard to really judge the fabrics without seeing them in person.

  • Telescope Casual – over 100 years of experience
  • Tropitone – the leader in aluminum style
  • Lloyd® Flanders – all-weather wicker
  • Homecrest – steel and aluminum furniture
  • Meadowcraft – wrought iron and replacement cushions
  • Gloster – the highest quality teak
  • Hatteras Hammock – the best name in hammocks
  • Custom Cushions – huge variety of fabrics and sizes

Telescope Casual
Our largest supplier of aluminum frame casual furniture.  They also make our beach chair and wood folding director chair.

  • Telescope Casual is still family owned and operated after over 100 years in business. (Their first product was a folding wood cot for World War I)
  • They are quality makers of sling and cushion styles on aluminum frames.  They offer a huge selection of frame colors, fabrics, and price points.
  • We have a huge in-stock selection of table sizes, up to 90″ oval. We have 42″ & 48″ round non-glass Werzalit too.
  • Average “life-span” for slings is 7 years. We sell lots of replacement slings for the thousands of Telescope Casual chairs we’ve sold over the years. The frame usually lasts at least twice as long as the sling.  A great furniture investment.
  • Many of their styles are stackable–this is very important to customers with limited storage space. Tables are “ready-to-assemble” and will flatten.
  • Telescope Casual has the shortest special order time for their in-stock styles.

Very high quality welded aluminum furniture.  A leader in frame styling and some more contemporary fabrics.

  • Fully welded frames, super high quality, many oversized cushion sets.
  • Tropitone is the first choice of hotels and resorts where poolside furniture gets heavy use.
  • Designs are elegant and stylish, always on the front lines of styles and comfort.

Lloyd® Flanders
The finest quality all-weather wicker.

  • Wicker is machine made and woven making it far stronger than imported wicker made of all natural materials.
  • Much roomier, sturdier and more comfortable than imported wicker.
  • Frames are welded aluminum.
  • Best and most popular placement is on screened porches and sunrooms.
  • Most fabrics are acrylic–washable and fade resistant.  Great swatch book for special orders.
  • Wicker frames can be washed with mild soap and water.
  • Outstanding selection of frame colors and fabric choices with new, modern styles as well as traditional.
  • Many options on dining and seating pieces.

Manufacturer of the highest quality steel patio furniture for over 50 years, (Homecrest also makes aluminum, but most of the Homecrest products we sell are steel)

  • Excellent choice for people who live in windy places or people with tall and/or heavy family & friends.
  • Steel requires some maintenance, but is stronger and more durable than aluminum. We’ve had people buy cushions for 25 year old chairs!
  • Steel coil springs make a great swivel rocker chair–strong & sturdy.
  • Homecrest slings don’t slide into a track like aluminum style slings. They are sewn into a “glove” and slide over the frame. This prevents the paint from being scratched when chairs bump into table rims.
  • Great customer service–Homecrest can get parts and cushions for 20-year-old chairs!


  • Mid-priced wrought iron made in the USA.
  • Very good quality for the money.
  • Great pricing on cushioned seating sets.
  • Dining sets are heavy, durable and great for windy areas.


  • Just the best quality you can get.  Perfection in teak.
  • A variety of tables: 51″ round, 59″x36″ rectangular with the option to add end pieces to extend the length and change the shape.
  • Chairs that are large and solid.  We also carry the stacking chairs, benches, and folding chairs.
  • Beautiful accessory pieces: end tables, cushion storage boxes, Adirondack chair and ottoman, and chaise lounges.

Hatteras Hammock
One of the best-known names in American made hammocks, Hatteras Hammock is also the largest maker of rope hammocks.

  • Hand woven in North Carolina using 3-ply cotton rope.
  • Stretchers are solid oak with a marine varnish for durability.
  • Stands are enamel covered steel and sold separately.  Stands require simple assembly.
  • Huge selection of acrylic fabric, padded style.

Custom Cushions

  • Made with high quality materials.
  • Fiber fill does not flatten out after one season like cheap replacement cushions will.
  • Delivery usually takes 4 to 6 weeks–can be shipped directly to your house.
  • Matching umbrellas are also available for most fabrics.
