The trouble with leaving the wood “natural”, even tho it might be rot resistant, is that it takes the furniture so long to dry after a rain. I have used extreior latex based paint with good results, and after the rain stops, I can dry off the furniture with a towel and it can be used in minutes.

If you like clear wood finishes try some of the newer water based exterior varnishes. They might not hold up well in South Florida, but would be satisfactory in your mid-America location.
