Furnish outdoor areas optimally: Our garden furniture guide
"The garden is the last luxury of our day, because it requires what is most precious in our society, time, attention and space", as the Swiss landscape architect Dieter Kienast already knew.
In order to be able to fully enjoy the richly planted garden, the sun terrace or the city balcony, suitable seating areas, garden tables and relaxation oases must be created of course! These should fit perfectly into the respective outdoor ambience. How handy that we at einrichten-design offer a wide range of exclusive garden furniture!
Outdoor furniture design
Whether garden furniture for spacious terrace areas and gardens or balcony furniture for urban plants - with einrichten design, fresh air fanatics of all kinds will find what they are looking for. The current trend is towards "a living room in the open air" - an extension of the cozy living area during the summer months outside. Here you will find numerous outdoor lounge furniture which have the coziness of a living room sofa, but due to the latest outdoor materials are wind and weatherproof.
Naturally the right illumination should not be missing! On the rise are wireless LED lights, which can be used variably and repeatedly in new places. With umbrellas, outdoor rugs, planters and combined barbecue / fire pits, the pleasure of being outdoors is getting perfect.
What to look for when buying and using the high-quality garden furniture, we will tell you below.
How much space do you have available?
Nothing would be more annoying than to discover after purchasing that the new garden furniture set does not fit on the balcony. This is easily avoided by carefully measuring the garden area which should be furnished. In our online shop, you can see all dimensions of your future garden furniture under dimensions / information for each product. Nothing can go wrong!
Depending on the size, you can either choose to have a real outdoor lounge with relaxation loungers and outdoor sofas - or order practical stackable or foldable chairs and tables for smaller patio areas and balconies online.
If you have plenty of space, you should take a look at the designer outdoor furniture by Dedon or Cane-Line, which offer not only design highlights, but also practical garden furniture modules that can be put together individually. For small open-air oases, for example, the petite Fermob folding chairs with matching balcony table are perfect.
Generally you will find rather narrow design garden furniture in our category balcony furniture, their larger siblings under lounge furniture and garden furniture.
Material Selection & Care
How to care for garden furniture?
There are various materials that defy wind and weather and are therefore well suited for outdoor furniture. Thankfully, einrichten-design gives you the freedom of choice: There are several design manufacturers who specialize in the production of garden furniture made of metal, teak, water-repellent upholstery, plastic or polystyrene braid. Although all these materials are suitable for outdoor use, they require different care and protection. Below we offer you a small overview.
Plastic garden furniture - example Vitra
The most famous representatives of exclusive plastic garden furniture can be found with Vitra. Whether Panton Chair, All Plastic Chair or Tip Ton Chair - all these Vitra seating furniture are also suitable for outdoor use. Plastic is known to be very easy to handle and can easily be cleaned from impurities with soapy water. However, it is recommended to make sure that the manufacturer - like Vitra - applies a UV coating that protects the colours from fading.
However, your coloured designer garden furniture should not be exposed to sun and rain for an extended period of time to keep it in a visually optimal condition for a long time. In terms of outdoor suitability, plastic furniture is almost unbeatable.
Polyrattan garden furniture - example Moroso
They are also easy to care for, but they seem a bit more comfortable: we are talking about garden furniture with polyrattan wickerwork. For production plastic fiber is woven so that a continuous seat arises. Outdoor chairs made of polyrattan wickerwork are particularly comfortable because the mesh gives a little while sitting. Because it is plastic fiber, polyrattan furniture is also weather resistant and can be cleaned relatively easy. With Moroso, a whole outdoor collection is based on this production principle: M'Afrique captures the magic of Africa and is definitely worth a look!
Metal garden furniture - example Fermob
The French manufacturer Fermob specializes in the production of designer garden furniture made of metal and does not give rust a chance - every garden chair or table at Fermob is provided with a powder coating that perfectly seals the surface and additionally provides colour stability. And colours are in abundance at Fermob! Everyone who wants to give balcony, terrace & Co. some colour make the perfect choice with Fermob metal garden furniture.
By the way: even for children, Fermob offers garden chairs and tables with the right dimensions. Just as with plastic furniture, cleaning is done quickly with soapy water and a cloth.
Teak garden furniture - example Skagerak
Wooden garden furniture has a long tradition and is just the thing for nature-friendly garden lovers and nostalgics. In the course of environmental protection tropical wood - which is particularly suitable for garden furniture, since it is very resistant - rightly came into disrepute. Fortunately, there is an environmentally friendly alternative: FSC-certified teak from sustainable plantation cultivation. For example it is used by the manufacturer Skagerak, who impresses us with robust and lovingly designed garden tables, armchairs and sun loungers. Teak has a particularly natural high oil content, which acts like a natural impregnation. Nevertheless, you should protect your teak garden furniture from heavy downpours in order to enjoy it for a long time.
In order to optimally care for teak, it is advisable to treat the wooden furniture with a special oil at the end of the outdoor season and to provide it with a shelter.
Outdoor Upholstered Furniture - Example Cane-Line
To move the area of life outside as much as possible in the summer months - this trend is on the rise. Of course, you need the right garden furniture for this purpose, which offer a similar level of comfort as in your living room at best. Our manufacturer Cane-Line is an expert in outdoor upholstered furniture and offers modular lounge solutions that can be used to create true outdoor sofa landscapes. Specially designed materials have been developed for this purpose - from Quick-Dry-Foam filling to water-repellent Soft-Touch covers. Even if it does not seem like it at first - even these comfortable garden furniture are easy to clean and are wind and weather proof. Of course, the protection should be greater than with pure plastic or metal furniture.
How to save your garden furniture from snow and rain?
Often you can order suitable tarpaulins or covers for your upholstered garden furniture online, with the help of which the designer furniture can be easily covered in the evening.
In general, when the days get shorter, it is necessary to bring garden furniture of all kinds into suitable winter quarters - be it in the garden shed or in the basement. This is the best way to protect your designer garden furniture.
Securing and insurance of designer garden furniture
Nothing would be more annoying than your exclusive garden furniture damaged or even stolen. Anyone purchasing high-quality outdoor furniture should therefore check whether their household insurance also includes external insurance. But be aware: while storm damage is often accepted at least to a percentage, many insurance companies rule out theft. It is therefore advisable to take further precautions yourself, for example to attach chain locks and generally to secure the outside area well.
So you can safely enjoy the summer outdoors - preferably on your exclusive garden furniture by Einrichten-design!
