As the weather warms up, we’re heading outdoors to entertain. And when we think of outdoor furniture and accessories, we find ourselves drawn to a classic material: zinc. Here’s a roundup of zinc-related products from Terrain; for prices and availability, contact Terrain in both Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

Above: Inspired by classic Shaker designer, the Zinc Shaker Chair is made from metal and a zinc finish for indoor or outdoor use; $248.

Above: For the Tile Top Garden Table, hand-cut ceramic tiles were laid on the top of a zinc-finished, metal bistro table and laid with a long-lasting grout for durability; $398.

Above: Made from heavy gauge steel and a rust-resistant zinc finish, the Zinc Hackrack is a durable alternative to standard window boxes. Handmade in California, the planters range from $88 for the small size to $128 for the large.

Above: Based on the popular design of mid-century French cafe chairs, the Zinc Cafe Chair is $248.

Above: The Zinc Top Trestle Table is made of solid teak trestle legs that are pre-treated with Terrain’s Weather Guard finish, giving the wood a silvery, aged patina and preventing wear from the elements; $2,498.

Above: A wrought iron garden chair, the Honeycomb Wire Chair, has a honeycomb weave, curved legs and is finished in zinc for $198 each.

Above: Once used in England during early 20th century, the Vintage Zinc Barrel, was originally used as a laundry alternative to the washboard. These antique, galvanized barrels can be used as planters, vessels for firewood, or indoor/outdoor storage; $298 each.

Above: The Galvanized Trough Planter was made exclusively for Terrain and constructed from durable galvanized steel and finished in a weathered patina. Their long, rectangular shape is ideal for a centerpiece of forced bulbs or small starter plants; $128.

Above: The Zinc Crossed Leg Table is made from steel with a zinc finish and a composite top that can be cleaned with mild soap and water; $1,698.

Above: Handmade especially for Terrain by a Philadelphia metal artist, the one-of-a-kind Meridian Spheres add a sculptural element to the garden, functioning as either a trellis or left bare to show their shape. The zinc finish on the spheres repels rust throughout years in the garden and will develop a unique patina over time. Prices range from $158 for the small 18-inch diameter size to $518 for the large, 32-inch size.
