Attractive garden chairs for sunny days outdoors
As soon as spring brings forth its rising temperatures, garden chairs are in demand in every outdoor area. Comfortable and attractive garden furniture are a key element to enjoying life on the balcony or in the garden, be that dining chairs for evenings socialising in the open air, sun loungers for sunbathing or chairs for your very own personal outdoor lounge. And whether you prefer simple Scandinavian design, the romantic style of French gardens or the calculated coolness of Bauhaus, garden chairs are available in a variety of designs and made of a wide variety of materials such as wood, metal or plastic. But how can one find that which best suits your needs? Let our quick tips guide you to the ideal garden chair.
Which garden chairs complement my garden table?
If you already have elements of a garden suite, special considerations must be given to the choice of chairs, including considerations that garden chairs and garden tables should not only be coordinated aesthetically, but physically. Always ensure that the seat height matches the table height and consider how many seats you need at your table. Garden chairs with armrests are particularly comfortable, but they also take up more space. In addition consideration must be given to whether your garden chairs should express a formal extravagance or a simple combination of form and functionality; considerations the varied garden chairs from manufacturers such as Kartell, Vitra or Gloster can help you define. In addition outdoor collections from manufacturers such as Hay or Fermob impress with their stylish uniformity and offer perfectly coordinated garden chairs and garden tables, which can be supplemented with additional furniture at any time.
Space-saving garden chairs and garden chairs with a folding function
Garden chairs with a folding function or lightweight stackable garden chairs are particularly suitable for small balconies, outdoor seating and space-saving storage. The stackable Belleville Chairs by Vitra or the particularly narrow Fermob Bistro Folding Chair made of painted steel offer ideal solutions.
Garden chairs for relaxing in the perfect lounge area
Relaxing, reading, dozing in the sun: the garden or terrace is normally a place to unwind and recharge. And thus a location where garden chairs which, and as with lounge chairs, offer a low base frame and reclined backrest are a particular delight. Especially in a group and in combination with a matching side table where they enable an ideal ensemble for relaxed get-togethers. Ultimate comfort is guaranteed by padded garden chairs such as outdoor armchairs from Gloster or sun loungers that can be switched between lying and sitting positions.
What is the best material for a garden chair?
When it comes to choosing the right material, aesthetic, functional and also economic aspects must be taken into account. Garden chairs made of teak or other woods suitable for outdoor use are of particularly high quality, have a very elegant, natural character and are preserved for generations with little maintenance. And as an extra advantage the wooden surfaces develop an individual patina and become more and more beautiful over time. Garden chairs made of plastics such as polypropylene or polyrattan and models made of aluminium, steel or cast iron are particularly weather-resistant, easy to care for and inexpensive. If you prefer glossy surfaces and want to add colour accents, garden chairs from Fermob, which are available with UV-resistant powder coating in various bright colours are an easy choice.
