As soon as temperatures begin to rise in spring, we all feel a need to spend more time in the open air. Consequently, seating solutions must be found for the balcony, terrace or garden for sunbathing, reading or getting together with friends, family and neighbours.

3 important aspects of the optimal garden chair

Decisive when choosing a garden chair are functionality, weight and of course the design, the last of which varies, just as the design of the garden varies, across a range of designer garden chairs anywhere between romantic and Scandinavian-simple.

The selected garden chairs should highlight the beautiful outdoor location? Quality comes before price, and the chosen chairs shouldn't weather even after a long outdoor season? Easy to store is an important aspect when choosing garden chairs? Foldable garden chairs in particular can save space over the winter, but outdoor chairs such as the stackable and robust Air-Armchair from Magis can also be effortlessly moved inside, stored and then transported outside again for the freshly calling sppring.

Tips on garden chair surfaces

Not to be neglected is also the question of the material: garden chairs made of wood such as the Skagerak Vendia Chair are resistant and develop over time an individual patina, which gives them a special and distinctive charm. The natural, living, teak of Skagerak garden furniture harmonises with the coming and going of seasons and plants, is easy to clean and easy to maintain with the appropriate teak oil. While for fans of colourful gardens, models like the Hay Palissade Chair by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec can be stacked and also have a robust powder coating in lightfast colours.


When choosing the optimal outdoor chair, it must be appropriate for and correspond with the ground (stone floor or grass? Wooden or tubular steel chair legs?). Although materials and colours must harmonize aesthetically, the practical aspect must not be neglected either. We therefore recommend four-legged chairs for hard floors and cantilever or rocking chairs for soft floors such as grass. This prevents the chairs from sinking into the ground. And because a picture paints a thousand words: some inspirational images of the perfect combination of designer outdoor chairs depending on the ground type.
