Creative & Unusual Garden Furniture Ideas
We love discovering out of the ordinary items for the home. And it's no different when it comes to the garden. Often hard to find, we have curated our top unusual garden furniture ideas to help inspire you. So keep reading to get your creative juices flowing for your next garden design or makeover.
Quirky Garden Furniture Ideas
We often find that the quirkier the better when it comes to choosing furniture for your home or garden. These quirky pieces will certainly create a talking point with your friends and family. A long time favourite of ours at Rockett St George is Cumberland the Sausage Dog Garden Bench. His happy little face will bring you so much joy every day! Our top tip is to look out for everyday items with something a little different. Much like the Black Three Hoof Side Table which at first glance appears to be just a simple side table. It's these little surprises that add magic to your design.
Colourful & Unusual Garden Furniture Ideas
Adding colour to your garden furniture is something we rarely see. This is often left to the plants but can really add a lovely, playful and unusual touch to your garden. Having been obsessed with the Pink trend in recent years, when we saw the Pretty Pink Metal Garden Bench we fell in love! This would look so fabulous piled up with soft cushions on a warm day. No wonder it rose to the top of our bestsellers list within 2 days of going on sale! Another of our most loved unusual garden furniture ideas is the Garden Swing with Planted Seat. A great idea if you are a little more green-fingered or happy to 'go-faux'. The seat of this swing can be planted with climbing plants for a super pretty and unusual feature. We love the idea of adding plants with colourful blooms for the ultimate insta-worthy garden. Equally as beautiful would be to add faux ivy as we have in our shoot. Super low-maintenance, this option means you'll have luscious greens all year round.
Garden Furniture for an Instant Outdoor Bar Area
We couldn't really write a blog about garden furniture without tempting you with one of our favourite ideas...! The garden bar is becoming a hot trend in the UK. If you're tight on space or budget then creating an instant bar area with clever furniture could be the solution for you. If you want to incorporate a full bar with seating, then an all-in-one solution is the brilliant Black & Gold Bar Set. Made from Aluminium and Iron, this heavy-duty set will look great on your patio or deck area. Or perhaps an Ibiza-lounge style bar area is more your thing? Stock up your bar with all your favourite drinks by making use of a bar cart or drinks trolley. Remember, every hour is happy hour when you have your own bar!
Take The Indoors Out
Don't be afraid to take indoor furniture outside. The trick here is to make sure you safely store them away to avoid damage from the English weather. By taking furniture outside and into the garden you create an extension of your home. An outdoor 'room' if you like that will immediately feel more relaxed and homely. We love the idea of using a classic coffee table for your garden which will look super chic. If you choose materials such as marble, glass or metal they will also be able to withstand some weather conditions. Great if you forget to bring them in overnight!
Concrete Garden Furniture
Concrete is a great material to use in the garden but is so often overlooked. Great for surviving most weather (not frost); concrete garden furniture will last a long time and looks super modern. Great for a contemporary garden space, the Lyon Beton Concrete Dice Stool/Side Table offers multi-functional use. Use as additional seating or as display plinths for beautiful trailing plants.
Or why not try your hand at a little DIY?! We have lots of ideas for you to make your own garden furniture using old wooden pallets. Check out our Pinterest board Wooden Pallet Garden Furniture Ideas.
