Furnishing the Outdoor Room

Choose furniture to suit the style of your garden

Choose furniture to suit the style of your garden

As the evenings lengthen towards the summer solstice I hope you have been able to enjoy some time outside in the garden. This is the time of year when your garden furniture comes into its own so if yours is tired or past its best it might be time to think about investing in some new pieces. As a firm believer in the benefits of sitting down and enjoying the garden as much as possible, I look upon outdoor furniture as one of the most valuable investments in your garden, and it’s often overlooked in favour of hard landscaping and plants when planning your space. This is why I always include advice on the best furniture as an integral part of a garden design.

If you’re thinking of updating your furniture, consider first what you’re more likely to use it for. There are endless choices so decide whether you’ll use it most for dining and entertaining or lounging and relaxing. It needs to be comfortable and well constructed if you’re going to be spending any length of time outside, whereas if you’ll just be popping out for a quick morning coffee you’ll get away with lighter, less durable pieces.

I like to leave my furniture outdoors throughout the seasons as you never know when a spell of good weather will tempt you outside – it’s often very early spring or late autumn and I like to be able to seize the day and snatch a few minutes in the garden whenever possible. Let’s hope this summer brings us plenty of them!
