Albion Bistro Furniture

Previously we discussed how Woodard patio furniture is building on their 140-year history. Now we would like to highlight their line of commercial grade outdoor furniture. In fact, Woodard offers so many different types of collections of commercial grade patio furniture that they have created a whole division to encompass them all. Their “In-Stock” furniture is where you’ll find their aluminum, wrought iron and wicker commercial collections. All of these collections are built to be able to withstand the demanding life of catering to thousands of guest every season. These pieces are lightweight yet durable which makes moving them around easy and most of the pieces are stackable. As well, these collections are massed produced to be able to fill a high volume order at any given time and will ship in two to four weeks.
