Aluminum bistro, dining, coffee and end tables for the patio, deck and garden.
Before the advent of aluminum patio tables, tables that were used outdoors were taken from the kitchen and dining room. According to Ellen S. Wilson's article "Aluminum by Design: Jewelry to Jets" in Carnegie Magazine, the use of aluminum products first became popular in the kitchen.
It wasn't long before the demand for aluminum patio tables would prompt designers to begin showing outdoor tables made of aluminum. Tables made by Alcoa, the first aluminum maker in America, resembled old furniture styles made of wood.
Aluminum legs were made to look like turned wood legs and were even painted to look like wood grain. As buyers began to enjoy the modern look of aluminum furniture it took on its own look.
In the 70's and 80's plastic patio furniture became the rage replacing aluminum. Recently, consumers have once again began to enjoy the durability and light weight of aluminum patio furniture and designers are responded with tables that are stylish and modern.
