Garden furniture to dine outside in comfort

The best garden furniture should be comfortable as well as chic. Choose models with innovative design features too, such as a lazy Susan incorporated into the table or a companion seat with essential space in the middle to rest your Pimms.

This week we’ve found hardwearing and weather-resistant furniture to suit both traditional and modern tastes. They include designs with smooth teak finishes or in lightweight but hardwearing Acacia wood. There’s also traditional-looking synthetic weaves and cast-aluminum frames with stainless-steel fittings too.

As a (very general) rule, we think a furniture set should stand you and your friends in good stead to get through at least a bottle of rosé and a large key lime pie before you get restless!  Check out some of our favourites…

We love the Firman Leisure’s Portland garden furniture, which comes with an integral lazy Susan and folding armchairs.

Firman Leisure’s Yellow Balau Kingston garden furniture comes with a stunning integral black granite Lazy Susan.

Valencia Companion set from Firman Leisure is made from polyethylene synthetic wicker suitable for year-round use. It’s UV resistant and able to sustain extreme temperatures – so that’s once in the summer when we get a heatwave and throughout the long winter when it’s freezing!
