• A Guide to Choosing Garden Furniture

    The garden. It can be viewed as an extension of your indoor space and just as valuable. Hopefully as the warmer months approach us, choosing and styling your garden will make your summer more long-lasting and where you retreat for relaxation, nature, fine dining or entertainment. Extending your interior style into your outdoor space will make your home feel bigger and brighter and we offer a variety for all garden sizes and styles.

    Before browsing, think about the intended use you would like for your garden. Is it social or an escape? For example, an intimate reading spot for the peace, loungers to soak up the late afternoon sun, a dining/BBQ area to host gatherings with friends and family. Take note of the patterns of the sun during the day and you will notice what areas emerge within your garden. An area that basks in the early evening warmth would be perfect for your dining area. Saviour the morning sun with your coffee by positioning your furniture to catch the sunlight.

    Planters. Flowers. Lights. Mirrors. All the soft elements to liven up your garden. Our Outdoor Tall Arched Garden Mirror will keep the space open and reflect the natural light so you can immerse yourself into nature and warmth. Planting your vibrant flowers and shrubs into tall planters creates privacy screens to break up the space and adds that touch of greenery. We recommend using the Antiqued Grey Cement Vases or the Rustic Metal Ribbed Window Box Planters. As evening sets but the drinks continue around the firepit, lights will be needed – fairy lights will create that subtle glow around the garden alongside wall lights such as the Westley Wall Light range for the perfect cosy illuminance.

    Let’s offer some style inspiration:

    Hanging Chairs – Very ideal for smaller gardens to optimise the space whilst still creating a focal point. Position the hanging chair in a quieter spot for that peaceful abundance surrounded by the swaying trees and unwind with a book.

    Bistro Chairs – The more subtle style for your morning coffee in the sunshine or intimate al fresco dines, this is ideal for smaller spaces to maximise aesthetics and practicality or to create a secluded area in your garden away from the noise. Why not pair this with a Perttu Iron Firepit for when that evening chill hits to enjoy the open starry sky.

    Loungers – A must if you love to soak up the sun with your sunglasses on and an ice-cold drink in your hand, our favourite is the Kanoa Garden Daybed.

    Dining Sets – Provides the option to dine outside mid-week with the family to catch the last of the rays or host gatherings on the weekends. Bench seating or dining chairs – which would you choose? Benches such as the Rustic Small Garden Set are timeless and versatile with a relaxed set up whereas dining chairs offer more comfort without overwhelming the space. Or combined the two for the ultimate stylish look. Our outdoor dining sets come in materials to suit any style.

    Selecting outdoor furniture that are built to withstand natures elements is very important for longevity and durability. It means you can make the most of your outdoor living space and withhold the seasons. As well as materials, you can design your sanctuary so it flows with your home’s interior. Add those textures through soft furnishings just as you would in your living room with cushions, blankets and decorative accessories to create a cosy and inviting space. Indulge into your style and add a touch of La Maison to your outdoor living.
