Last week, I wrote a post with some favorite picks for outdoor furniture under $100, and in the comments, one of you suggested something truly brilliant, a great source for inexpensive, modern outdoor furniture that I never would have thought of before.

Helpful reader ARCHIcritique had the idea to buy outdoor furniture from restaurant supply stores. It's pretty genius — restaurants with outdoor seating have a need for reasonably priced furniture that will stand up to the elements, and so do you. So why not buy where they buy?

The Webstaurant Store has an extensive selection of outdoor furniture at prices that are hard to beat, like this aluminum chair for $42.99. (You can save even more money if you buy more than 11 at a time, but I'm guessing your patio isn't quite that big.)

Central Restaurant Products has quite a few choices for outdoor furniture, including these chairs that will give your outdoor space a certain Parisian flair, for $92.49 each.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg — a quick Google search for 'restaurant supply store' yields plenty more sources. Happy shopping!
