Most people equate Old Hickory furniture with living and dining furnishings but the history of this rustic furniture began in the great outdoors. No matter how much we enjoy our daily work environment it is refreshing to 'take our shoes off' and take a respite in a comfortable chair outside. The rusticity and relaxation offered by Old Hickory outdoor furniture makes this an inviting possibility. You can still purchase many of the same items that grace the porches of historic lodges across the United States. They now apply a dura coat finish which makes it longer lasting and offer a variety of weaves of outdoor friendly materials which all adds up to comfort and sturdiness.
