Seat­ing plan

> When se­lect­ing out­door chairs, tables and so­fas, con­sider the scale of the fur­ni­ture in re­la­tion to your other out­door fur­nish­ings, just as you would in­side.

> If space is tight, go for non-solid ob­jects made from open ma­te­ri­als such as wire, slat­ted tim­ber or rat­tan. They’ll cre­ate a more spa­cious, less clut­tered feel­ing.

> If you go for a chair that has padded seats or cush­ions, think about where you might store them dur­ing win­ter.

> Re­mem­ber that stack­able chairs are a lot eas­ier to keep tidy, both in your gar­den or stor­age.

> To keep your chairs and out­door fur­ni­ture pro­tected in cold or wet weather, in­vest in some cov­ers that are easy to throw over the top. Pro­tect­ing your fur­ni­ture will make it last a lot longer. 1 Low out­door chair, $349, from Green With Envy. 2 Bai­ley out­door din­ing chair, $85, from Tar­get.
