TAKE A SEAT

Homes and Antiques Magazine - - 10 WAYS -

Base your choice of gar­den room fur­ni­ture on how you’ll use the area, as well as how you want it to look. If it’s to be a fam­ily room, make sure there’s plenty of seat­ing but choose shapes that won’t crowd the space. So­fas and chairs with legs have a light and airy look and up­hol­stery in pale, neu­tral colours will be slow to show fad­ing. For a con­ser­va­tory feel, rat­tan fur­ni­ture is a ver­sa­tile op­tion. Avail­able in clas­sic and mid-cen­tury de­signs, it’s re­sis­tant to sun­light and can be used in­side and out, though nat­u­ral rat­tan – new and an­tique – must be brought indoors in wet weather.

Con­crete-topped Hud­son ta­ble, 150cm di­am­e­ter, £1,390; Har­ring­ton all-weather wicker din­ing chairs, £265 each; Corinium tall jug, £11, all Nep­tune.
