Best Outdoor Garden Furniture Guide 2022
Great garden furniture can take your garden to the next level. But choosing the right furniture for you isn’t always straight forward. With so many options available, it’s easy to lose track of what is important for you, your family, your space and your lifestyle.
With Ransoms Outdoor Furniture guide, the hard work has been done for you and will make it easier to choose pieces that are both beautiful and functional.
The first thing to work out is how you use your outside space. Do you enjoy hosting parties? If so, lots of seating is needed, or do you prefer to relax in privacy? If you are a sun worshipper a lounge chair is essential, our new sun loungers for 2022 are the Elba Sun Lounger and the Surf Active Sun Lounger.
If you enjoy cooking, BBQing and eating outside as much as possible, a sturdy dining table with appropriate seating is something to consider. We have some great dining set options, depending on the amount of people you want to seat, we’ve compiled a list of seats and option:

Measure up your space
Taking measurements might not sound like a lot of fun, but it is important to do this before buying to avoid disappointment. When measuring, allow for chairs to be pulled out and being able to walk around the set comfortably. Very important is to consider space for a parasol as well. A parasol should cover people and not just the table. Do a thorough job and don’t forget to take notes that are easily accessible when shopping for your new garden furniture set.
When shopping for the perfect garden furniture sets, what material you’ll pick is one of the most important decisions. Not only does this decide the look, but there are a lot of other factors to consider when going for a certain material, like maintenance and storage requirements. We select all our garden furniture sets to be durable, long-lasting and above all easy to maintain.
Resin weave is immensely popular at the moment and for good reason. It is stylish, there is no maintenance, it can stay outside year round and won’t get UV damage. We have nothing but good to say about resin weave and we hear good things from our customers. Some example of resin weave ranges are the: Amalfi, Aruba, Catalan and Lazia.
Of course you still need to look after the cushions on your garden set, al though they resistant to a rain shower, it is best to store them in a waterproof storage box so you can pull out perfectly dry cushions when the sun is out!
Our cushion box options are: Aruba Storage Box, the Denali Storage Box, the aluminium storage box in Medium and Large. The size you go for depends on how much and what you would like to store, but our shop floor team is happy to help you pick the right storage solution for your garden furniture.
Aluminium / metals
Metal integrates easily into every kind of garden, from country cottage to rooftop terrace, and can be powder-coated for a colour finish. Cast aluminium is strong, durable, and depending on finish, it doesn’t rust or flake if left out in wet weather and is generally very low-maintenance. Despite being hardy, it is a very light material, making it portable, perfect if you like rearranging your garden furniture, or simply want to move into the shade when it gets too hot.
Our beautiful aluminium options for this summer are: the Panama Bistro set, 4 seater and 6 seater or the Surf Active 6 seater and 8 seater.
Recycled Ocean Plastic
This year we have something special; we are proud to stock a innovative set of DuraOcean garden furniture. With nature and the environment at the forefront of its design and production, the chairs and table are constructed from 100% recycled marine plastic and the legs are made out of eucalyptus wood from responsibly managed forests. What is more, these chairs are fully recyclable and free from any harmful chemicals.
The perfect Bistro set for anyone who cares about the planet: The Nassau Bistro Set comes in 3 stunning colours.
