Popular Garden Furniture Styles
With so many garden furniture styles to choose from it can be hard to know what style will suit your garden and what you should be looking at. Here is a handy guide to give you a rundown on the most popular styles of garden furniture and what falls into each category.
The definition of ontemporary is very subjective as some people desire simple clean lines whilst others consider a wide range of designs as contemporary. Generally, truly contemporary furniture is not that easy to find and often leads you towards more niche retailers who offer high end and slightly more expensive designer products. In recent years we’ve seen a move towards more people wanting contemporary designs and you will see this category of the garden furniture market increasing with new materials and styles such as Fabric garden furniture and Aluminium garden furniture.
The easiest material to use for designing contemporary garden furnitureis Aluminium due to the clean, simple lines and designs that you can create. As most retailers expand into this category we envisage white and grey Aluminium colours being most popular. If you are considering contemporary garden furniture then brands to consider are Alexander Rose, Barlow Tyrie, Gloster, Manutti, Jati & Kebon & Nova Outdoor Living. Not everything these brands offer falls into the contemporary category, but each brand will have a contemporary offering within their ranges.
We have also seen the introduction of a new material to the garden furniture industry, this is being referred to as Rope and is the same material used in the boating and yachting world. Rope Garden furniture is stylish and modern and will look beautiful in a contemporary setting.
Made from high quality marine rope and strong aluminium framework, this style of furniture will withstand all weather conditions and can be left outside uncovered all year round. If you’re looking for Rope garden furniture, then we recommend Alexander Rose.
With many people refurbishing their homes we believe this look should continue into the garden. Modern garden furniture can also be highly subjective, with so many new concepts that can be referred to as modern.
We interpret modern to be the most up-to-date technology and for garden furniture that is fabric garden furniture. Fabric furniture is fabric that is weatherproof and stain repellent and can be left outside all year, even when it rains. Developed in partnership with Sunbrella, who are experts in designing outdoor fabrics for yachts and boats. We recommend Nova Outdoor Living’s fabric range which is available in 3 different colours, a stylish grey, a stunning white and a unique taupe and offer an extremely modern feel to your garden.
If you’re looking for stylish garden furniture, then you will have to pay close attention to garden furniture trends and the newest collections. Trends within the garden furniture industry are always changing, different colours become popular and new styles are always being developed.
Stylish garden furniture is defined as the most on-trend furniture. For 2018, we believe the most on-trend furniture will be fabric garden furniture and grey weatherproof rattan furniture. We also believe casual dining sets will continue to increase in popularity.
High end garden furnitur is ideal for those with a larger budget, looking for something that will last for years to come. High end furniture will come in all shapes and sizes, so you will be able to find a luxury version of any garden furniture style, especially luxury rattan garden furniture.
If you’re looking for funky garden furniture then you will want something slightly unusual, a real statement piece. Whether this is something brightly coloured or an unusual shape, funky garden furniture is very fun to shop for.
However, it is important to be careful you are not compromising on durable and long-lasting furniture when opting for a funky piece. We recommend still looking for popular materials such as rattan and fabric to ensure your funky furniture is still of good quality.
As always, weatherproof rattan garden furniture is the most popular category of garden furniture. Rattan garden furniture comes in all shapes and sizes, so you are sure to find rattan furniture that fits whatever look you desire, whether that be modern, funky, stylish, high end or contemporary.
Weatherproof rattan garden furniture is so popular because it is long-lasting and durable. Designed using powder-coated aluminium frames, rattan furniture is completely protected against rust. Plus, if you choose a set from White Stores, we only use high quality PE rattan weave which means your set will also be protected from UV rays, frost, snow, and rain.
