Garden trends for 2020: Our top outdoor furniture picks

It’s March; the weather is still mostly on the gloomy side, yet we’ve had the privilege to witness bright and beautiful daffodils poking their sleeping heads out from underneath the soil. Before we know it our gardens and outdoor spaces will be drenched in warming sunshine and many a flower in full bloom. 

With temperatures soon to be heading towards permanent double figures (we hope) and the evenings getting ever lighter, we thought it the perfect time to start looking at garden design trends for 2020. We’ve been doing a little digging, and there are some truly stunning garden trends for 2020.

In this post we’re going to walk you through some of our favourite garden trends of the season, also dropping in some of our most adored furniture pieces along the way which we hope will fill you with inspiration in time for summer 2020. So, without further ado, we’ll begin with a trend which we’re incredibly excited about… natural materials.

Garden furniture trend #1: It’s all about natural materials

Whether you’re blessed with a stunning landscaped garden or you have a slightly humbler outdoor space, rest assured you’re still able to create a welcoming, naturally styled space which you’ll be proud to call your own. We may be biased, but a great place to start if you’re intrigued by this particular 2020 garden trend is through your outdoor furniture. If high-quality, durable and stylish pieces are your calling, you’ll like these…

The Torsa round dining table and accompanying solid armchairs

If you’re partial to dining alfresco when we’re blessed with sun-filled skies (and perhaps even when we’re not), then we’re confident you’ll take to the sleek modern lines and overall natural feel of the Torsa round table and its accompanying solid armchairs.

The oval dining table boasts a stylish ceramic top, the rest made from the highest quality teak wood which is sourced from ecologically friendly plantations. The armchairs share a similar story, exuding simple and natural elegance in their design. Together, these pieces will make you want to invite all your friends and family over to dine alfresco every summer evening!

The Prato bench

Benches are a wonderful option to complete natural outdoor furnishings, whether as seating at a dining table or simply as a piece to sit and enjoy your garden. We’ve picked none other than the
Prato bench, designed by Stephane de Winter, the founder of Manutti himself. Its wrought iron frame comes in black or white, and the teak top gives the piece a sturdy-but-stylish vibe, perfect for any garden or outdoor space.

Low tables

Low tables are fabulous for entertaining, being the perfect place to pop the early evening cocktails and tapas dishes. The Manutti range has some exquisite natural pieces in their range, which will help you effortlessly achieve 2020’s garden trends. Our favourite pieces include the
Siena coffee table, the Trento coffee table and the Mood coffee table.

Garden furniture trend #2: Make your garden a living room

Acting as a great way to extend your home and encourage you to spend more time outside, have you considered giving your decking or patio a stylish furniture makeover? Garden furniture isn’t just about having a comfortable outdoor sofa anymore, there’s so much more to it, and you can craft your perfect space based on your personal hobbies.

Do you enjoy meditating or yoga? Perhaps an elegant outdoor rug would work wonders to help you relax in the garden? If reading is one of your favourite pastimes, don’t let the brightness of the sun force you back inside; our range of umbrellas is sure to have something that suits you and your garden perfectly.

If it’s simply a large dose of comfort you crave, we have a stunning range of outdoor sofas which come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your outdoor space. From the rather grand, top of the range Elements Concept 5 to the charming Flex seat, you can rest assured that you’ll doze off in the sunshine in no time. 

Garden trend #3 – get more greenery in your home 

This last one is less related to garden furniture and more about the positive wellbeing aspects attributed to plants – especially when they’re in our homes. Although your traditional house plants may not seem like anything overly unique, it would seem the trend is that we’re now on the search for much larger varieties. As air purifiers that give your immune system and mental health a boost (to mention a few of the advantages), there’s a long list of benefits to having plants in the home. You could even invest in a beautiful sidetable to keep inside as the perfect spot to place your new house plant.
