For those of us in California fire zones, flammability should be a prime factor. Wood and especially man-made plastic "fake rattan" materials can be extremely flammable and many of our outdoor pieces on decks and patios directly abut our homes, making them conduit fuels for falling embers.

California the outdoors is the indoors and vice versa. I found that a lite
sweep in the morning or eve keeps my patio clean and furniture looking new. I
do have a problem with lizards that enjoy pooping on my patio floor but since
they take care of the bugs, I tolerate them. It gets hot here so metal
furniture will burn your arms and legs, plastic is hard and sticky. Rattan or woven is a great hiding space for
spiders. The best I have found for my area is teak. We use our outdoor space a
lot, not just eye-candy. The shade from
my trees is lovely however the leaf drop causes me a little extra effort.
