The Strathwood St. Thomas cast aluminum garden furniture collection offers luxurious comfort and classic design sophistication. Each piece of the St. Thomas cast aluminum patio furniture series has scrolled ornamentation in a vine-like motif with deep seat cushions in a variety of loveseats, chairs and lounges. This series of tables, chairs, and matching deep seat chaise lounges and loveseats is above most casual metal garden furniture on the market, and yet remains surprisingly affordable. With small tables starting at around $100 and dinning tables (for 4 or 5 people) priced at around $250, creating outdoor patio sets is affordable.

Each piece of furniture, be it a table, chair or lounge, is finished with attention to detail including hand painted flecks of silver and bronze highlights on a rich brown cast aluminum base that’s rustproof due to the latest high-tech powder coating finish. This is all-season, weather-resistant furniture that’s lightweight and yet heavy-duty in terms of quality construction.

Aside from the cast metal frames, with scrolled backs, arms and legs, each piece comes with a thick neutral colored (beige) cushion that’s upholstered in a treated outdoor fabric that’s UV and stain resistant. Easy care, comfortable luxury and affordable pricing – that’s what the Strathwood St Thomas collection offers in their exclusive cast aluminum garden furniture collection.

Here are the top Strathwood cast aluminum items with high ratings based on design, elegance, functionality, ease of care, comfort, manufacturing quality, affordable prices and customer satisfaction:

  • St. Thomas cast aluminum patio furniture sets – tables and matching chairs:

The most popular table is the 47.5 inch Strathwood St. Thomas Cast Aluminum Round Dining Table, which has a central hole where a 2 inch umbrella may be attached. It’s made from a durable all weather non-rusting cast aluminum metal with detailed scroll-work that covers the entire surface.

Every piece of the St Thomas collection is finished with a rich brown powder coating and accented with silver / bronze flecks that gives the aluminum a distinctive classic sophistication with a hint of antique elegance. Although this is a round dining table, and it’s possible to seat more people, it’s not recommended to count on arranging more than 4 – 5 people comfortably at a table that measures 4 feet in diameter. Ideally, this is a four person table. The St Thomas series doesn’t offer a larger design – perhaps one of the reasons the prices are extremely low – priced at just $249, which may include free shipping if ordered within the United States.

Note: Although the phrase “aluminum garden furniture” may conjure an idea of ultra lightweight aluminum pieces that easily blow over in the wind, “cast aluminum” is quite different. It’s closer to cast iron in overall feel and weight – although it weighs less than iron.

For example, the outdoor dining table presented above, from the St. Thomas Strathwood outdoor furniture collection, weighs almost 50 lbs. So, while it’s possible to move, it’s not going to be blown-over with wind gusts.

Cast aluminum makes for solid, durable, heavy-duty furniture that’s ideal for seaside or beachfront decks, pool areas or windy garden spaces where lightweight metal garden furniture might require anchoring to the ground.

cast aluminum patio chairs

For about $240, choose two matching chairs (sold in sets), called the Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Deep-Seating Arm Chair, which is the most affordable of the seating choices in this collection. Considering that you’re paying just $120 for each cast aluminum chair, and each comes with a 5 inch thick cushion, upholstered in treated outdoor fabric, and the chair itself is an armchair, not just a flimsy piece of metal garden furniture.

Create a complete set with a large round dinning table and 2 matching chairs for just $489, or get a five-piece set for $729!

The other chair option is just a little more expensive, about $260 for a set of two Strathwood St. Thomas Cast Aluminum Swivel Dining Arm Chairs. This is the ultimate in luxury outdoor seating. This set of cast aluminum patio furniture pieces is designed not only to swivel but to rock back and forth while still having an adjustable screw-on glide system to balance chair height even on deck or garden surfaces that may be slightly uneven. Each chair provides ample seating with a 25 inch width, and weighs about 25 lbs, so their not going to get blown over, though still being light enough to move around.

  • St Thomas rustproof cast aluminum garden furniture for around the pool:

Elegant poolside furniture in cast aluminum with padding that’s affordably priced can be hard to find. That’s why the Strathwood St. Thomas Cast Aluminum Chaise Lounge Chair is one of out favorite suggestions. For about $320, this sophisticated piece of metal garden furniture makes an ideal pool lounger because it’s crafted from all-weather cast aluminum that’s rust resistant, can be adjusted to accommodate six different sitting / laying positions (extending 84.5 inches in length), supports up to 300 lbs and comes complete with bronze finished frame and 3 inch cushions.

Create poolside areas with a couple pieces of cast aluminum patio furniture, such as the lounge chair, and add one or two small tables and swivel chairs, along with an umbrella.

Coordinate your deck, patio, pool area and garden with matching pieces, all rust resistant and coated to resist inclement weather, from the St Thomas series.

  • St Thomas single pieces of metal garden furniture for any outdoor area:

It doesn’t matter if you’re furnishing a small garden area, a large patio deck, poolside space, a garden gazebo or even a summerhouse, there’s a piece in the Strathwood St Thomas collection that fits absolutely anywhere. It’s the classic 2-seater loveseat; an upscale bench designs with scrolled back, decorative arms and legs, which comes complete with a deep seat cushion upholstered in neutral colored outdoor fabric. It’s priced at just under $250, and can be accented with toss pillows for a cozy area on a porch, or used as extra seating with a patio dinning set. A single bench or loveseat in a garden, under a tree or under the porch of a wooden summerhouse, can convert the area into welcome usable space.

This single piece of cast aluminum garden furniture has the capacity to hold up 500 lbs of weight and measures 46 inches in length. The back is 36 inches high, and the cushions that come with the loveseat are 3 inches thick.

As with all the Strathwood metal garden furniture, the craftsmanship is excellent for the price, and the pieces are rust resistant and coated with the best long-lasting finishes. Each loveseat weighs a little over 28 lbs so it’s sturdy enough to be in a garden even without anchoring. That’s the beauty of cast aluminum – it’s lighter than iron, but not so light as to be flimsy. Customers who’ve bought this particular piece of aluminum garden furniture from Strathwood rave abut the quality and elegance.

Start your St Thomas outdoor patio furniture collection by shopping online, and if you live in the United States, you’ll probably qualify for free shipping. It’s easy and affordable to have quality outdoor furniture when choosing cast aluminum.

  • Strathwood Falkner outdoor bar stools, high chairs and 32 inch bar table designs:

While cast aluminum garden furniture such as dinning tables, chairs, lounges and loveseats are practical and functional on decks, around a pool side or on a patio, there’s one other type of outdoor furnishings that can make your backyard or garden a social place – bar stools. The cast aluminum outdoor bar stools, tables and high chairs, also crafted by Strathwood (but part of the Falkner collection), are affordable, practical, elegant and functional for outdoor gatherings.

The first item we suggest is the Strathwood Falkner 32-Inch Bar Table, which retails for about $270, and is chic rust-resistant black cast aluminum with a powder coating for durability. This table stands 40 inches high, ideal for arranging a set of outdoor bar stools alongside it. The table is 32 inches in diameter, which means there’s enough space for drinks as well as snacks.

While the Falkner collection isn’t as decorative as the St Thomas series of aluminum garden furniture pieces, the two styles can be mixed and matched the same deck or patio area because they’re both elegant, have a classic air of stylish luxury and are cast aluminum.

Strathwood high bar chair

The bar table (mentioned above) is ideally paired with a set of two Strathwood Falkner Highbar outdoor bar stools that come with cushions. They’re sold in sets of two and cost $240 for a pair. Create a set for just a little over $500. Add a bench, loveseat, or a couple of the Falkner deep seat chairs, and spend under $900 for up to five-pieces.
