Where to Find Quality Garden Furniture
When purchasing garden furniture, it is important to ensure that what you are purchasing is of good quality, will withstand all weather conditions and will be long-lasting. Many consumers look for a good price and sometimes sacrifice quality for a cheap find. We believe it is possible to get a bargain as well as ensuring your garden furniture is top quality if you know what to look for.
In this buying guide we have outlined some of our highest quality garden furniture collections and how to know they are top quality.
The Oyster Collection
This stunning rattan furniture collection from Nova is designed to be of very high quality and comes with a 7-year warranty to ensure peace of mind and guarantee the quality of the furniture. The Oyster collection combines a unique wide rattan weave with powder coated aluminium frames for a long-lasting and durable finish.
When purchasing rattan furniture, to ensure that you are getting top quality rattan you must ensure that you look for aluminium frames as opposed to steel frames as steel frames will rust but aluminium frames will not. Additionally, you want to look for PE synthetic rattan as opposed to PE or PVC materials. PE is the strongest and most weather resistant form of synthetic rattan whereas other forms tend to experience signs of weathering such as cracks or rusting after only 1 year of outdoor use.
The Oyster collection also comes with padded seat and base cushions and tempered safety glass. These extra features ensure that the furniture is of a high quality and suitable for outdoor use all year round.
The Jamie Oliver Collection
This great collection of cast aluminium furniture has been designed by Jamie Oliver in partnership with Hartman. Jamie Oliver is a well-known name and only puts his name to the best quality items. These cast aluminium sets from Hartman are extremely durable, weatherproof and long lasting. Cast aluminium is weatherproof and can be left outside all year round without rusting or weather damage.
This collection has great features such as grilling sections built into the tables as well as handy ice bucket sections. Plus, the furniture comes with thick padded cushions that are weather ready and can also be left outside all year round along with the furniture.

This rattan collection uses PE half round rattan weave which is extremely durable and requires little maintenance. Plus, the furniture has powder coated aluminium frames to ensure it does not rust.

4 Seasons Garden Furniture
All of the rattan furniture we sell from 4 Seasons Outdoor comes with a 10-year warranty to guarantee its quality and assure you that your furniture will last for years to come. Although this furniture is more expensive it will last you upwards of 10 years and is furniture that can be left outside all year round without weather damage.
4 Seasons uses Hularo rattan weave and powder coated aluminium frames to ensure that their furniture is fully weatherproof. Plus, all of the chairs come with padded cushions made from acrylic fabric which is resistant to sunlight and rain. 4 Seasons uses Reflex Foam Fillings for their cushions, reflex foam allows the cushion to contract and expand, unlike fibre which loses its thickness after time. In addition, all of 4 Seasons furniture can be left outside all year round and requires very little maintenance.
When looking for quality garden furniture we recommend looking at the warranties offered as well as the materials used. Although there is cheaper furniture available on the market, this furniture will need to be replaced often and will therefore require more expense in the long run.
