Garden Furniture Trends

If you haven’t updated your garden furniture for several years there’s no better time than now. And at Bents we know you want only the very best which is why we seek out the most exclusive outdoor living designs and garden furniture trends so you can buy with confidence.

The popularity of eating al fresco and treating your garden as an extra outdoor room has inspired a new generation of garden furniture trends that takes casual dining to the next level. This year it’s about much more than simply dining al fresco. It’s about creating a space that’s not just for eating and entertainment but also a place for relaxation and loungability; furniture which combines both with a sense of style, flexibility and outstanding design.

The flexibility and comfort of the new seating arrangements now make it possible for you to chill out and eat supper in the same place. Roomy sofas and chairs are perfect for relaxing with your guests after dinner, to while away the evening and watch the setting sun.

Resin Weave continues to be a big trend

Modern garden furniture materials such as resin weave continue to be a big trend thanks to their hassle-free, low maintenance finish. The weave retains the classic style and look of natural wicker but is resistant to the elements, while lightweight aluminium frames make the furniture strong and robust, yet deceptively lightweight and easy to move around.

A corner suite such as the durable Kettler Palma set, with large benched seating and additional stools that fit neatly under the table, is perfect for relaxed outdoor entertaining or a summer garden party. And the Kettler Palma Mini Cube offers a more intimate setting but with the same classic style which will never go out of fashion.

All-weather cast aluminium

It’s not all about resin weave though. Rust resistant, cast aluminium continues to be a strong garden furniture trend and can be left out all year long with no need to cover. The Beaumont set from Hartman is available in 2, 4 or 6 seater designs with chairs featuring neat seat cushions and gently curving arms.
