I'm leaning towards metal furniture because it's durable, can quickly and easily be rehabbed, plus it's just the right era for my 1950's house. I also love wicker furniture. It such a nostalgic thing for me, I love the way the furniture creaks underneath you, and the look of the paint that's chipping off after years and years of use. I know it's not quite as sturdy, but it's just so comfortable to curl up on.
Of course my newest obsession might be bamboo furniture. I let a set pass me by at the Salvation Army last month and I haven't forgiven myself for it. I think I'm going to have to see what comes my way, I'll let destiny make the decision for me!

|I love the look of these Chippendale chairs from Good Bones Great Pieces.|
|Love the paint job on these wicker chairs too.|
|This wicker rocker from Jubilee Furniture reminds me of the one my Mom had in my nursery, of course she still has it!|
|With the right cushions this rattan sofa from Casa Cara would be perfect.|
|I could sit in the glider all day|
|These two vintage chairs are featured in an article all about metal chairs on About Pool and Patio.|
|I love this metal set from Home Portfolio. It's listed for $ 1,200, but I'm sure I can find one for less!|
