I recently decided to treat myself to a new pair of garden chairs for our patio. Not just dining style chairs for around the table, but more like ‘lounge’ style chairs for sitting in to enjoy an alfresco cup of coffee and a good book.
Now, which of these dream patio scenarios would be where you’d choose to have that coffee and book time? The trick is to work out your outdoor decor style to help narrow down your garden chair search…
I found these great ones in Homebase (link further below), but they are low in stock now (blame the good weather and their exceptional good value). I thought they looked a lot more expensive than they actually are and they’re the perfect size and style for this corner.
What I love about them is how they look great both completely unadorned or cosied up with a good old sheepskin – bonus!
There are lots of lovely bistro sets, garden benches and outdoor sofas on the market, but the garden lounge chair is an affordable option that we can relax into. They’re also really handy to move around the garden or from the front of the house to the back, and so forth. Much easier than shoving a two seater outdoor sofa about or lifting a heavy garden bench!
Anyway, it was on my quest for a stylish, comfortable and affordable garden lounge chair, that I came across so many other lovely designs that I really wanted to share with you. Now that garden centres and larger outdoor retailers are reopening, you can have a sit down and try out before you buy, which is pretty important considering the small investment you’re making.
