The garden furniture par excellence: garden sofas and armchairs

There is no denying that garden armchairs and sofas are the garden furniture that each of us wants to have. It will be that they express comfort and hospitality, it will be that the outdoor lounge always has a particular charm, the fact is that garden furniture has had a surge in sales in recent decades. Also due to the attention given to outdoor spaces from many points of view: furniture, lighting, development of resistant and practical materials, the garden is now considered to be the same as indoor spaces. This is because the well-furnished garden can be used during the day and in the evening: during the day to enjoy the summer breeze, in the evening to chat with friends. Indeed, we can enjoy them even in winter with plaids and outdoor stoves, always if in the area where we live the winters are not harsh.

Garden furniture materials

The materials with which garden furniture such as sofas and armchairs are made is very diverse. Among the materials of natural origin we find wood, generally Taek, an exotic wood immune to water and humidity. Then there is the rattan, extremely light, durable and it does not require any extraordinary maintenance. Usually a rattan furniture is supported by an aluminum structure, which accentuates its lightness. The same applies to wicker, another material much loved for outdoor furniture and made from the young branches of a particular variety of willow.

In addition to materials of natural origin, those made of plastic such as polyethylene and polypropylene deserve attention. Cheap and absolutely practical, plastic garden furniture is much more resistant than wood, rattan or wicker furniture. In the end there are the metal furnishings which in terms of elegance are unbeatable, extremely durable but heavy to move, especially if made of wrought iron or steel.
