Our Outdoor Furniture Top Picks for Your Garden this Year


With great gardens comes great garden furniture. From an individual hanging egg chair or double cocoon seat, to outdoor corner sofa suites with tables and firepits, garden seating elevates your outdoor space and turns it into a usable entertaining area around the clock.

Traditional timber and rattan garden furniture is on-trend for the coming spring-summer season, and while colour schemes are mostly minimalist and elegant, we’re seeing little pops of colour added using garden accessories like brightly coloured parasols.

As we move past Easter and into the long, warmer evenings of British summertime, here’s our top picks of outdoor furniture for your garden in 2022.

Rattan-Style Garden Furniture

Rattan garden furniture is a long-time favourite and this year is no exception, with rattan furniture making an appearance in our exclusive 2022 garden furniture ranges from Bramblecrest and Supremo.

There are so many reasons to love rattan-style outdoor furniture. It looks great, it’s easy to clean or cover when not in use, and the slight spring in the weave gives a cushioning effect too.

If you want hanging egg chairs that work well alongside your main outdoor seating area, then our exclusive Bramblecrest garden furniture range is also the place to look, as we have single and double cocoon seats in woven wicker effect.

Minimalist Metal Patio Furniture

Metal patio furniture is hard-wearing and again easy to clean, with just an occasional wipe down to remove any dust and other surface dirt.

Our exclusive Hartman Somerton patio furniture range is crafted from stunning cast aluminium for a unique aesthetic that will not rust.

With covers available for products throughout the Hartman garden furniture range, you can protect against dirt and rainfall while leaving your patio furniture in place – perfect for larger metal outdoor furniture that you don’t want to have to move when rain is forecast.

Timber Tables

One feature of our exclusive Norfolk Leisure LIFE garden furniture range is the addition of timber tabletops and side tables, which we absolutely love.

Painted timber complements the colour scheme of your patio furniture suite, but for a statement, choose one of the Norfolk Leisure LIFE patio tables with ethically certified teak timber tabletop to add a splash of natural colour.

Red teak arm rests and side tables are also a feature on Norfolk Leisure LIFE outdoor corner sofas and patio suites, so there are plenty of ways to bring the vibrancy of natural timber to your patio seating area.

Patio Accessories Top Picks

Finally, don’t forget to pick up a few of our top patio accessories to go with your new outdoor furniture, so you can continue to enjoy your garden late into the evening.

Brightly coloured parasols are our biggest tip for this season. You’ll find them among our exclusive Hartman garden accessories in colours like red, jade and ocre – eye-catching and practical both at once.

La Hacienda’s Warm Vibes Heater is a great piece of kit for entertaining. It’s an efficient 1,500-watt halogen tower heater with a built-in wireless speaker and even a disco light, making it so much more than just another patio heater!

And last but not least, browse outdoor lighting from Bents for over 100 ways to brighten up your outdoor space after dark, and you can get even more hours of happy use from your patio furniture once the sun goes down.
