Furniture for a Great Garden Setting in 2022
Furniture for a Great Garden Setting
After winter must come spring, and as the days continue to grow in length, many of us will soon start thinking about spending more time outdoors in our own private garden oases. Functional and fabulous, the best garden furniture will transform your outdoor space into a stylish and Instagram-ready haven in time for summer, and stay that way as the weather cools. From beautiful garden benches and teak relaxing chairs to wicker sofas, tables and more, at Design Warehouse we have beautiful options for creating a glamorous and welcoming greenspace that you just won’t want to leave. And size doesn’t matter – from grand gardens to petite patio spaces, we’ve got you covered.
Play with your seating options
A garden setting is where you can get creative and really mix things up. With plenty of options to choose from like benches, club chairs, love seats and occasional stools, the more seating options you provide in your outdoor space the more family and friends of all ages will enjoy it.
We offer a plethora of beautiful, functional styles from traditional and classic, to organic and modern, and our deep seating teak and wicker furniture is available in both modular sectional styles and fixed styles. Each piece is available separately, with the whole collection providing a cohesive and appropriate grouping of high-end outdoor furniture that can easily be tailored to suit your particular space.
Create a place to relax
Essential to a glamorous garden setting is a stylish and oh-so-comfortable relaxing chair, where you can curl up with a book and spend the day dreaming. Pure Grade-A Teak quality and incredibly comfortable, the Soho Grande Outdoor Club Chair invites you to unwind in true al fresco style. Designed to cater to modern living; the Soho Grande Collection’s features include wide slats of our signature Grade-A Teak, held together with tubular bolts for a sleek, crate like effect. If that wasn’t chic enough; the style is amplified by the addition of uniquely padded Sunbrella® cushions that further lift the comfort factor way up, and are guaranteed to withstand the elements for a lifetime. The Soho Grande Outdoor Club Chair is bold but versatile, whether positioned by itself in a little leafy retreat from your busy world, or as part of a bigger seating set on your patio.
Add a classic bench
Looking for a crucial piece of seating on which to take in your leafy surroundings? That will be the garden bench, with several stellar options available at Design Warehouse depending on your signature style. One example is the Monet Teak Bench, which will work beautifully alone or as your centrepiece for a larger setting. Perfect if you favour softer lines, the Monet Teak Bench is part of the romantic, whimsical and heavy-duty Monet Collection, each piece integrating geometric lines with ergonomically rounded pieces for comfort. The Monet Teak Bench features a wonderful, gentle curve in the back and seat of the framework, easing beautifully into any garden surroundings. Perhaps have it framed by your favourite potted plant or tree in one of our raw concrete planters, or place a Monet Chair on either side and a table for an open, welcoming setting that is superbly suited for casual drinks and platters with friends.
The Lutyens Bench another popular option, and is a beautiful and classic addition to any outdoor space. The two-seater traditional garden bench, designed by British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, is made of solid A-grade Teak using mortise and tenon construction. We also offer a three-seater Lutyens bench if you have a larger space to fill, and recommend a set of teak nesting tables to keep on hand for your ice bucket or coffee.
The wonders of wicker
Have a larger group popping around to enjoy your leafy haven? Dignified and impressive; we love the raw texture of woven wicker in the Logan Outdoor Wicker Sectional Collection in the shade Natural. Offering an unabashedly modern silhouette, the Logan features wide and deep seating for an easy mix of luxury and liveability in your garden space. The Logan Outdoor Collection is also completely customisable, offering four pieces that can be organised to specifically fit your space. The synthetic wicker is engineered for outdoor use to prevent wear and tear from environmental factors, while the light hue of the wicker weave is in beautiful contrast to the charcoal tone of the Sunbrella® cushions outfitted for each piece. Wicker and gardens have a long history with good reason, complementing each other beautifully.
Planters With Style
We carry a fantastic collection of raw concrete products, from dining to decor, with outdoor pots and planters a particular favourite with our clients. Made out of our unique blend of reinforced concrete, our Jimbo Planter is tall and strong as well as exuding a real feeling of industrial chic, and looks great alone or paired with a contrasting shape like the Blok Square Concrete Tapered Planter. Consistently evolving as they weather in the same way as regular concrete when placed outdoors, you can create a tiered effect with a grouping of several sizes, or add them to a deep seating configuration when you need some plant life to add an organic feel to a more structured space.
Long summer days and clear nights deserve to be spent in your personal garden oasis in complete comfort. If you’re thinking about making plans for a season in the sun, we can help.
