Wooden garden furniture to complement any outdoor space

20-April-2017

No matter the size of your garden, from balconies to wrap around lawns, there is wooden garden furniture to suit any space. With the right piece or set of rustic garden furniture, you can create a stylish space to dine or lounge, come rain or shine.

Stylish and functional spaces

For small garden spaces, like a balcony, patio or converted shed, think about investing in multifunctional pieces. For example, our Low Sleeper Tables can be used as a floor-level dining area. All you need are some large, colourful cushions for seats and you have a Moroccan-themed garden party.

When you’re not using it for a cosy picnic, you can scoot it up against a wall and use the cushions for back support. This not only gives you a versatile piece of garden furniture, but also gives you multiple options for entertaining in a small space.

Getting closer to nature

If you think there is no place for seating in your outdoor space because of an obtrusive tree or plants, think again! Try to incorporate the natural features of your garden into your seating area.

This wrap-around bench, for example, makes the most of the tree’s shade and tranquillity while offering a place to lounge. You could nail Sleeper Benches together around the tree or use them as a base and nail down a custom shaped wrap-around seat.

Undercover relaxation

If your garden is a decent size, but lacks privacy, save yourself being overlooked by adding a pergola. Our Ultimate Pergola Kits are made from pressure treated timber and can be used to support climbing plants that will offer shade and privacy.

Pergolas are also great for hanging hammocks or garden fairy lights, to make your outdoor space really special.
