All-weather wicker combines a classic beach style with easy-to-care-for sensibility.Wicker and Rattan A close second to wood in terms of popularity, wicker and rattan outdoor furniture give your outdoor space a classic country or beach-style look – as long as you keep it under a cover. These natural materials, along with similar options like bamboo and natural grasses, can’t handle prolonged exposure to sun and rain. If you want to move your furniture to a more exposed outdoor location in summer, seal the wicker with wood furniture sealer or marine varnish (test first in an inconspicuous spot to be sure you like the results) or with tung oil to help preserve it. Painting is another option; finish with marine varnish to help seal the surface. The good news is that new synthetic options, often called “all-weather wicker,” look like the real thing but will easily handle outdoor conditions.Pros Inexpensive, lightweight and easy to care for. Style options range from traditional to contemporary. Natural materials can also be painted. Wicker look-alikes made from resin are a good choice for seaside locations.ConsThe natural materials will deteriorate with exposure to weather. Strong winds may topple or move lighter pieces.

I like the idea of big ottomans in a grouping under the roof. Extra seating plus footstools for kicking back watching TV

Don't like the style of this furniture or home but I think it's nice to have both a dining and seated option in the same area.
