5 Must-Have Pieces of Garden Furniture for 2017


November 29, 2016

No outdoor space is complete without quality seating. From entertaining a family party to enjoying a quiet dinner with the people you love the most, garden furniture transforms empty outdoor space into a usable oasis, perfect for relaxing and making special memories. This year, get your hands on these must-have pieces of garden furniture to get the most possible enjoyment from your outdoor living area:

1. Comfortable seating

At the end of a long day of hiking, biking, or playing on the beach, comfortable seating is critical. To encourage your guests, family, and friends to gather around and pull up a chair, get some comfortable seating for your outdoor space.

Depending on how large your area is, it’s likely you’ll want a few different types of seating – a few dining chairs to enjoy an outdoor dinner, a comfortable, weather-proof sectional to lounge around the fire, and a few chaise lounges to enjoy a good book and catch some rays. If your space is somewhat more limited, look for versatile and multi-functional seating that can serve several purposes at once.

2. Weather-resistant ottomans

Second only to seating is a comfortable place to rest your feet. To make your outdoor space as comfortable as possible, pick up a few weather-proof outdoor ottomans. Ideal for propping up next to your outdoor sectional, or using as additional seating when the party gets a little larger than you had thought.

If you need additional storage as well, look for ottomans with lift-up tops, perfect for stashing pool toys, outdoor pillows, or a favorite summer book.

3. Side tables

Imagine what your indoor seating area would be like without side tables! The same goes for your outdoor seating area. Make the space relaxing and functional by including several useful side tables, where your guests can rest drinks, books, and phones during dinner or an outdoor garden party. Aside from being functional, side tables are also an excellent accessory that can be perfect for holding a vase of fresh blooms.

4. Rattan coffee tables

Rattan coffee tables are perfect for soaking up the Kiwi sun and enjoying life outside this summer. For best results, find one that fits nicely with your outdoor sectional and is durable enough to stand up to the elements of the season – including the wind, the sun, and rain.

Remember that rattan comes in a variety of shades and colors, so it’s easy to find one that blends beautifully with the rest of your luxury outdoor furnishings and compliments the look of your entire outdoor space.

5. An outdoor swing

Can you think of anything more relaxing than swinging the summer afternoon away in a piece of swinging furniture? If you answered “no,” you’re in line with most people. This season, give yourself a relaxing perch from which to enjoy a beautiful summer afternoon or a great book with a piece of swinging furniture. Ideal for installation from a large backyard tree, or as a standalone piece, these gentle and soothing seating options are the ultimate in outdoor luxury.

For best results, look for a durable swing that seats at least two people. This will make it a comfortable reprieve for you and that special someone, or for visiting guests. What’s more, additional room makes it easy to stretch out in the swing, making it a perfect place for relaxation on a warm summer’s day.
