Garden Furniture That’s Not Going Out of Fashion
Like any other industry, the garden furniture world has trends that come and go, however they tend to change less quickly than the fashion industry, for example. Here, we’ve revealed the top garden furniture trends that are here to stay – for a while at least!
As people tend to spend a lot of money on garden furniture, it can be most upsetting if something suddenly goes out of fashion. It can mean that you can no longer find matching items, or that you simply just want the new “in thing” but can’t justify replacing your other furniture yet. So, before you go spending big money on furniture this year, pay attention to the trends we think are going to be sticking around a while.
Grey Rattan Garden Furniture
Rattan garden furniture has been a popular trend for many years, and we believe it will remain at the forefront of the UK market for at least the next five years. In particular, grey rattan is taking over as the most popular colour and we believe it is set to stay this way. Grey looks more modern than the traditional brown and natural colours of rattan and therefore looks great in all garden types.
Aluminium Garden Furniture
Aluminium is currently the number one choice for garden owners in Europe, and the UK market is typically a few years behind the European market. As aluminium furniture starts to creep in to stores and garden furniture centres, we expect there to be a huge demand from customers. With this furniture being so durable, and with many designs to be created from it, it is a trend that is certain to stick around.
Fire Pit Furniture
With the UK’s climate being like it is, unbearably hot one minute and raining the next, with large spells of cold in between, fire pit furniture allows us to use our gardens for longer and over more periods of the year. For that reason, the popular fire pit dining sets and coffee tables are definitely here to stay.
Reclining Garden Furniture
As our search for comfort in all aspects of our lives continues, we are certain that the market will experience an increase in garden furniture that reclines – much like our indoor sofas. These reclining sets make our gardens feel more like an outdoor lounge and an extension of our homes rather than a separate entity.
Wooden Picnic Benches
Whilst wood garden furniture as a whole has declined in popularity over the years, wooden picnic benches are still the most popular choice for parks, and other public spaces as well as some gardens. Nothing looks set to replace this furniture in these areas and we predict there will always be a place for wooden garden furniture on the market.
