Never-ending winter be damned! I want to think about outdoor furniture, but I'm basically clueless. What holds up well? Dining set-up or lounge? Specific recommendations appreciated!

Because winter has been kicking my butt, I've turned my thoughts to preparing for warmer days and nights to come. We have an empty deck and patio that are begging to be enjoyed once the snow and ice recede. AskMe gave me plenty of wisdom on the subject of indoor couches
, so maybe you can all help me figure out outdoor furniture too. What should we be looking for or avoiding? Tips or tricks to keep in mind?
Potentially relevant details: CT weather sucks, the backyard is small, but the deck is reasonably-sized, and I'm a tremendous mosquito magnet, so please recalibrate my expectations of hanging out in my backyard, if you must.
