Five garden furniture trends you should know about

Are you on the hunt for garden furniture at the moment but not sure what to invest in? It’s a problem many of us are having at the moment as the sun goes out and we all start looking forward to getting out in the sunshine.


Every year we see different gardening trends coming in, often utilising the timeless, whether it be natural stone tiles for patio flooring, creating a charming and rustic exterior, or the many flowers and plants that come in and out of style each summer. The same applies to garden furniture, often reflecting the styles of flooring and other permanent features we see in gardens, and this year is no different.


So, if you’re spending your weekends parading the shops on the lookout for new chairs, tables and loungers, here are five garden furniture trends that will be prominent this summer…

Sustainable Materials

It’s perhaps no surprise to see that sustainability is high on the agenda with garden furniture at the moment. More and more people these days are opting for furniture that’s made from recycled plastic, reclaimed wood or is using responsibly sourced rattan. However, what’s important to note is that the materials used here are not only better for the environment, they are also durable too. 


Eco-friendly designs are definitely here for 2024 and they’re here to stay too.

Multi-Functional Pieces

Versatility is key when it comes to garden furniture in 2024. Multi-functional pieces are highly sought after as they allow for flexibility in outdoor spaces. Look out for dining tables that double as fire pits, benches with hidden storage, or modular seating that can be rearranged to suit different occasions. These clever designs maximise space and cater to the evolving needs of outdoor living.

Bold Colours and Patterns

Gone are the days when you’d look for something a little more subtle. This summer is all about embracing bold colours and vibrant hues. Colours such as mustard, terracotta and teal are all going to be prominent, as well as tropical motifs and geometric prints to add a real playful nature and focal point to your garden.

Indoor-Outdoor Fusion

Something that has become more common in recent times is the trend of blending the indoor with the out. There are many ways people are doing this, with bifolding doors one way of connecting the two, as well as tiled flooring, which can see the kitchen flow into the outdoor spaces.


However, garden furniture is also becoming more blended with the indoor too, often resembling living room sets. It’s all about finding that extra comfort that brings the living space outdoors. 

Minimalist Designs

Finally, while we can expect plenty of patterning, there’s also a minimalist trend going on right now too. Sleek, understated furniture design which focuses on functionality is providing a more contemporary feel in our garden spaces, with materials like metal, wood and concrete being prominent. 


It’s a simplicity and elegance to look out for, and can really elevate any garden space into a modern day, calm and tranquil garden oasis.
