So many patio furnitures to choose from....

I AM NOT bragging....but, we have a fabulous backyard.  It's a split level yard with a rock wall separating the upper and lower levels.  The rock wall has four flowering trees evenly dispersed surrounded by roses bushes, poppies, geraniums, desert flowers, you name it!  Did I mention that I spend hours mowing, raking, weeding, sweating...well, you get the idea. Problem Uno: we lack sufficient patio furniture.  I've been looking for quite some time (We even expanded our concrete pad and I still don't have any chairs!) and can't quite narrow it down!  There are so many beautiful options.
Aluminum
Teak

Wrought Iron

Padded

Strap

Sling

Wicker

High Table

Low Table
A lot of choices isn't it?  I'm thinking I'd love the padded furniture the most, but knowing myself and my children, it would be destroyed the fastest.  So, I think my pick would be an Aluminum or Wrought Iron set. Like this:
Obviously a big enough table for guests is important.  Also, a canopy would be amazing to shade us from the hot sun, here in the desert.

And for the S'mores lovers in my family and friends, a firepit would definitely be a bonus!
So, what do you think of my choices?  Practical?  Stylish?  Both?  Neither?

Lila, funny you made this post because my first thought was, wow she really loves the outdoors...You always have great outdoor inspiration photos. But I get it know, when you have a great outdoor living space it can be so breath-taking to get it done...

Hi Lila,
First of all I want to thank you for stopping by and for your nice comment!
Your post of today is very beautiful! I am always looking for beautiful outdoor furniture! Sometimes hard to find the beautiful pieces! You showed many beautiful pieces here!
I love to have a space in the garden with some contemporary furniture and another space with the more classic pieces as you all showed here!
Have a nice rest of the week Lila!

Hahaha, if I had your backyard I would proudly announce it to the world too! I love gardening and it makes the home even more special. Keep up the great work!
