When Robert Brown and Hubert Jordan founded this outdoor furniture company in 1945 in Pasadena, California, they were aiming to give Americans more elegant alfresco options than the lowly folding aluminum chair -- in fact, Brown Jordan was the first company to create furniture for full-time outdoor use. Their success is evident in this inventive collection of patio furniture, which includes tables, chairs, chaises, ottomans, and seating. Materials range from teak wood to stainless steel, while the styles suit all tastes, from traditional to modern.
