Garden sofas are perfect for unwinding outside in comfort. With the weather warming up and more of us spending time in our back gardens, it's the perfect time to consider getting your hands on an outdoor sofa to soak up the sun rays in style.
From garden corner sofas to garden sofa sets with matching tables, a garden sofa is brilliant for the whole family to enjoy together. While other garden furniture, such as sun loungers or day beds, are just as comfortable, an outdoor sofa provides ample space. So if you love to entertain, a garden sofa is the perfect choice.
There are, of course, many outdoor sofa styles and designs to choose from: A garden corner sofa is great for maximising space and putting against a wall or fence, a smaller bench-style sofa is ideal for compact spaces, while a rattan garden sofa can work for any size garden but is ideal for contemporary spaces.
The main thing to remember is that a garden sofa should be just as comfortable as an indoor one, but made with water-resistant materials instead. And while you'll want to make sure it's comfortable, you also want the sofa to stand the test of time.
