At the end of the month, we turn the clocks forward, and we know what that means – what we lose in terms of an hour less in bed, we gain in the shape of more daylight hours. With days stretching ever longer, as the temperatures rise, we’ll spend more time in the garden but only if we have the weatherproof rattan garden furniture to enjoy it!
This year, we welcome several key pieces to our rattan outdoor furniture ranges. Made from this beautiful, robust, natural and sustainable material, let us introduce you to five of our latest outdoor garden furniture items, perfect for sitting back and relaxing in your garden.
Beyond al fresco dining – relaxing in the garden
There is more to garden furniture than outdoor table and chairs although we agree these should remain part of your garden furniture set up. But if you enjoy the garden more by relaxing and reclining, it makes sense to invest in the beautiful Heyshott rattan sofa set. The spacious sofa and matching armchair, along with a coffee table would look elegant on any patio.
Weatherproof outdoor living ‘room'
Continuing the theme of relaxing and reclining, we bring you the beautiful Colwell rattan sofa set. Ideal for when you regularly entertain or if you have a larger family to accommodate, the beautiful off-white outdoor cushions of this set are weatherproof meaning that the occasional shower we have come to expect of the great British summer weather is not a problem.
Corner sofa for the patio
The outdoor corner sofa is an item of outdoor furniture that has become a firm favourite in recent years. And no wonder with all the seating it offers as well as the vast expanse of a sofa, perfect for a cheeky snooze on a summer's afternoon…
We like to think that the outdoor corner sofa has come of age this year with our Hampstead garden sofa set. With a sturdy aluminium frame, it is not only robust and more than capable of withstanding the great British weather, but it is also ideal for the conservatory, sunroom or in the shade of the pergola too. A stunning piece of how the combination of rattan and other materials can come together into a sublime fusion.
Something smaller – the two-seater rattan sofa
A garden bench in a shady nook of the garden is the ideal spot to get away from it all, kick back, read a novel or just enjoy the gentle buzz of nature all around you but swap the hard-outdoor bench for a pretty and robust bamboo bench. Opt for a low-level outdoor table too, and you have instantly created an outdoor reading nook.
If you've spent any time in a spa, you'll know the importance of reclining and allowing your mind, body and soul to unfurl and relax. We want you to emulate this in your own outdoor space which is why we have decided to include these amazing garden lounger sets. No wobbly sun loungers threatening to collapse at any moment, just deep seating that is so comfortable you won't want to move. And with a handy matching table with a tempered glass top to match, the garden has never looked so relaxing and enticing.
