Acacia Wood Furniture

Acacia is a sustainable hardwood that's dense and durable, and made to withstand the elements. It's a beautiful lightweight option that's easy to transport and store away when not in use.

  • Durable: Acacia wood is the hardest hardwood on the market making it highly resistant to scratches and cracks.
  • Water Resistant: Spilled drinks and rain aren't going to be a problem. Acacia furniture is very resistant to water keeping it safe from rotting or degrading.
  • Temperature Resistant: Unlikely to warp or change shape over time making it ideal for keeping out all summer long. 
  • Compact & Lightweight: Easy to transport and store away when not in use.

Resin Wicker Furniture

One of our most popular collections!

  • Hand woven: High-end wicker outdoor furniture is hand made by weaving the outdoor wicker onto a powder-coated aluminum frame. This kind of manufacturing technique allows for a softer feel and warmer look, making high-end wicker outdoor furniture the preferable choice.
  • Sturdy Look & Construction: Choosing outdoor furniture with thicker and wider wicker gives it a feeling of being stronger and more substantial while providing a high-class look that is gradually replacing the thinner wickers.
  • Suitable For Outdoors: One concern people have is about using the furniture beside a pool or ocean. Some other materials can have problems with surface oxidation and peeling, but with wicker, there is nothing to worry about as long as you use high-end wicker outdoor furniture.

Aluminum outdoor furniture is quickly becoming the popular choice especially in areas where there is a pool, as there is no need to worry about the glass on the dining table or coffee and side tables shattering or breaking.
  • High End Formal Look: Aluminum furniture is strong, but also looks strong which will only add to its high-end look. The smooth surface of aluminum also lends to a more formal look.
  • Beautifully Detailed: The unique technique used to manufacture aluminum outdoor furniture allows the manufacturer to be creative in its designs. Aluminum tables can be full of beautiful details and intricate designs to create many types of looks from traditional to modern.
  • Lightweight Design With Tubular Aluminum: Aluminum does have the downfall of being quite heavy and expensive. And while heavy is good, too much is not, especially on a dining chair, people need to move to get in and out from the table. This is why many aluminum chairs also use tubular aluminum which is much lighter. By using the beautiful designs of the cast in the back and seat areas and using the tubular aluminum on the legs and arms this allows for a great looking chair that is less heavy and also less expensive.

Sol Rope® Furniture

Sol Rope™ is specifically designed and engineered for outdoor use.

  • Sturdy Construction: Sol Rope™ is constructed from a durable, braided polypropylene tube with a fibre core and brings traditional craft into the high-tech age to offer an inspiring and authentic way of living.

Sol Teak® Furniture

Sol Teak® faux teak outdoor furniture has the look, feel, and weight of real teak furniture with minimal maintenance requirements.

  • Low Maintenance: Unlike real teak, the grain will not raise and no sanding or oiling is required.
  • Two Finishes Available: Both Natural (a warm, golden brown color) and Weathered (a soft, silvery grey) finish options are available.
  • Heavy & Wind Resistant: Sol Teak® is suitable for coastal environments or locations where heavier weight furniture is desirable due to windy conditions.
  • Natural Teak Look: Its wood look provides natural appeal which captures the beauty of teak without the work.

Batyline Sling® Furniture
