Quality Materials Matter

Acacia Wood

Renowned for its durability and resistance to weathering, acacia wood offers longevity and strength, ensuring your outdoor dining set withstands the elements while retaining its natural beauty. Gear up for garden gatherings with the Dawlish Sofa Set, exquisitely designed to comfortably accommodate a garden of any size. Crafted from acacia wood and adorned with olive green polyrope and comfortable seat pads, this charming wooden sofa set radiates warmth, making it ideal for embracing sunny days.

Garden Trading Outdoor Sofa Set

Crafted from the highest-quality polyethene, PE rattan captures the look and feel of natural rattan while surpassing its limitations. When it comes to longevity, PE rattan garden furniture stands out as an excellent choice for outdoor settings. Unlike traditional rattan, which requires more protection, this attractive recycled plastic alternative is celebrated for its durability, UV resistance, and waterproof properties. Crafted from the finest PE Rattan, our Mediterranean-inspired Skala Sofa Set’s ample, curved shape offers the added benefit of a chaise lounge for ultimate relaxation. If you happen to miss out on that prime spot, don't worry; use the matching ottoman as a clever footstool to create a makeshift lounger. Alternatively, you can remove the ottoman cushion and use this section as a table for drinks and nibbles.

The timeless material beloved by outdoor furniture enthusiasts is known for its exceptional durability and innate resistance to moisture and decay. Teak’s warm, golden hue and smooth texture add a touch of luxury to any outdoor space, while its minimal maintenance needs make it perfect for those who value both style and practicality in their outdoor sofa sets. The Amberley Sofa Set boasts a sleek and contemporary design, making it an ideal choice for modern patios and decking areas. Featuring the same material combination (New Teak and Aluminium) as our Camley Collection, we've incorporated neutral grey cushions to add comfort and soften the overall look. Complete with three tables, including a central coffee table and two built-in at each end, there's ample space for refreshments to enjoy throughout the afternoon.

Accessorise Thoughtfully

From luxurious seat cushions and throws to opulent tableware and ethereal lanterns, adorn your outdoor sofa and coffee table with finishing touches that captivate the senses and elevate every moment spent outdoors. Adding warm, golden festoon lighting above your alfresco living space casts a gentle radiance, infusing your space with a soft, ambient glow. Styling your space thoughtfully encourages guests to linger longer in the garden after dark, keeping conversations flowing well into the night.

Maintain an Inviting Alfresco Living Space

Looking to extend the lifespan of your outdoor furniture? Regular cleaning of uncovered patio sofas and outdoor chairs is crucial, but it can be time-consuming and challenging to keep on top of. Outdoor furniture covers simplify maintenance by reducing the frequency and effort needed for cleaning. By protecting your furniture from weather-related damage, covers help maintain its original appearance, ensuring your outdoor space looks consistently inviting and well-maintained. Simply popping on covers overnight or using them for extended periods off-season allows you to store furniture outdoors, safeguarding pieces from potential damage or deterioration. If you’re looking for more detailed advice on protecting your new outdoor sofa with furniture covers, revisit our practical tips and tricks.

Gravitating towards the classic elegance of acacia wood or the modern minimalism of PE rattan? Either way, there's a perfect match to be found within our curated collection. Your outdoor living space should be an extension of your home, a sanctuary where you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Whether you’re enjoying a quiet moment of solitude with a good book or hosting a summer barbecue with friends, the right garden sofa sets the stage for memorable moments and endless relaxation.
