Take a Load Off With Garden Furniture

Whether permanent or temporary, garden furniture affects the look, feel and use of outdoor space. Of course, beauty isn't everything. Make sure that chairs, tables, benches and chaises are comfortable and practical before you purchase them.

Integrated Design

The architecture of the home should influence your garden furniture style. For example, cottage garden seating is best when it has a softer, homespun feel. A number of options blend well with a rustic design: original pieces, quality reproductions and repurposed furniture.

This quirky, natural growth site is enhanced by a custom wooden bench constructed from reclaimed materials.
