Seven unusual types of garden furniture

If you hear mention of garden furniture, you may well think of plastic patio dining sets, wooden benches or metal bistro sets, but there’s a lot more to contemporary garden furniture than those. Read on to discover some of the more unusual types of garden furniture Britons can now relax, recline and stretch out on.

1. Relaxed recliner seating

Many people will have reclining sofas or chairs within their homes, but what about out in the garden? Leading suppliers such as Norfolk Leisure Life garden furniture produce some luxurious garden recliner sets that are every bit as comfortable as your favourite indoor armchair. They are jus as practical as they are cosy, featuring all weather, soft touch outdoor cushions made from robust fabric that resists fading, staining and mildew. The seats recline simply to a relaxed position, complete with a padded footrest so you can really put your feet up al fresco.

2. The bar table and stools

If you’re short on space, a set comprising bar table and four matching stools could be the ideal solution, especially if you opt for a folding set that is easy to erect, fold away and store. Some are even connected so you can fold table and four sets in one simple motion. What better to complement a garden bar, or to use with your balcony, caravan or motorhome?

3. A permanent pergola

If your enjoyment of the garden is limited by having to seek shade on a sunny day – or shelter on a wet or windy one – why not opt for a more permanent gazebo or pergola to create a shaded area that is instantly accessible? Most have removable canopies, so you can easily soak up the sun’s rays on the most clement days of summer.

4. Egg chairs

Egg chairs have been a huge hit on Instagram of late, and it’s easy to see why. With room for two to cosy up under the sun or the stars, a double hanging chair comes with its own frame from which it swings most invitingly.

5. Cube dining sets

Like the bar set, these space-saving cubes are ideal for smaller outdoor spaces or hidden corners. The cosy little stools tuck neatly beneath the table top for storage, so eating lunch, dinner or a barbecue outdoors can be achieved in a matter of moments.

6. Firepit included

Corner outdoor seating sets have been around for a while now, but a select few have recently upped their game by adding a gas powered fire pit in the middle of the table. Perfect for staying out late in the comfort of your own garden!

7. Bean bags

Bean bags for outside? Yes, they are indeed a thing, thanks to innovative new designs that are weatherproof. Ideal for those who wish to kick back and relax, from a group of teens to a granny and grandad, the material these outdoor bean bags are made from is tough, waterproof and available in a choice of bright or neutral tones that will complement any garden. It’s easy to take them indoors too, thanks to the integral carry handle and storage bag.
