Garden furniture trends are evolving in 2022. Customers are more and more opting for furniture which is bringing the aesthetics of their indoors to the outdoors, with a big feature on coastal themes as well as stripped-back nature and plant themes. As well as this, there has been a significant increase in the interest in sustainability, with demand for eco-friendly materials and designs increasing greatly over the last several years. If you’re planning a garden refresh before the summer really kicks off this year, take a look at this list of garden furniture trends for 2022.
One of the main garden furniture trends of 2022 is bringing the indoors outside. From comfortable cushioned outdoor sofas that mirror the style of your indoor ones to continuing the aesthetics of your home in the garden, outdoor furniture is more than ever blurring the lines between interior and exterior. Try replacing your classic lounge chairs or picnic table sets with a big, comfy, outdoor sofa that you can sit at with a group of friends going into those long, warm summer evenings while staying comfortable throughout the night.
Botanicals and Nature
A trend that we are seeing continue into 2022 is the nature and botanicals trend. Garden spaces increasingly feature lots of wooden and wicker furniture as well as botanical prints on furniture and decoration. People are appearing to want to make their furniture a part of the surroundings, with more plants and trees being integrated into the decor, rather than carving out a space in the garden further away from nature.
As always, the repeating trend of stripped-back coastal gardens has come around again. Furniture stores near me are using lots of whites and neutral colors, and increasingly using rope and wicker as materials for garden furniture, aiming for that seaside ambience that stripped-back designs can provide. Picture yourself lounging in a private garden designed like a greek island sipping on a cool glass of lemonade soaking in the sun and you’ll get the idea.
Heading into 2022, people are becoming more and more conscious of the environment than ever before. It seems people are leaning away from “fast furniture” trends of the past, and are instead looking towards investing in furniture that will last for several years and through a lot of use. Additionally, there is an increasing trend of using recycled materials in gardens and garden furniture, which is bringing a chic, rustic air to the garden furnishings. The demand for the use of sustainable materials in garden furniture as well as eco-friendly designs has increased dramatically over the last couple of years, making this one of the key trends in 2022 garden furniture.
When it comes to garden furniture, it appears that people are looking toward versatility in their products now more than ever. A seating area that can move easily from being a corner sofa for your romantic garden date night to a small sofa and some stand-alone chairs for hosting friends is something that people are looking for more than ever to make their garden spaces more flexible and usable than ever before.
