Rattan Garden Furniture: A Comparison of Different Styles

With so many different styles to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which garden furniture set is right for you and your garden space. We’ve put together this useful article that looks at all the different rattan furniture styles that are available, comparing the benefits of each to help you make a more informed decision. 

Garden furniture is an investment that you and your family will benefit from many years down the line, so it’s important you make the right choice! Read our guide below… 

Corner sets 

First up, rattan corner sets. These are an extremely popular option due to the fact they can be used for both relaxing and for dining. The comfortable corner sofa featured within these sets can be used as a lounger if you put your feet up, but you can also have plenty of people around the table if you are entertaining.

Rattan corner sets come in a range of sizes so there really is an option to suit all garden sizes. This style of furniture set is also ideal for anyone looking to maximise the space available in their garden, as the corner sofa can fit nicely into a corner of the garden, leaving plenty of room for entertaining.

Our corner sets all feature a glass topped table and some feature additional seats if you have a large family or would like to use your set for entertaining friends.

Bistro sets

Bistro sets are ideal for those looking for a furniture set where they can sit and enjoy a drink. Our bistro sets all feature two comfortable seats making them an ideal option for couples wanting somewhere to relax together in the summer sun.

Bistro sets are also a perfect option for those who are limited on space, whether that’s a small back garden, balcony or compact patio area. On the flipside, those with a bigger garden may opt for a bistro set in addition to a larger furniture set to give a greater variety of places to relax in their garden. Our range of bistro sets all feature a glass topped table, perfect for popping nibbles and drinks on.

Dining sets

Next up, we have rattan dining sets. As the name suggests, dining sets are perfect for those wanting somewhere to dine outside with their friends and family. While you can use other styles of rattan furniture for enjoying meals, dining sets just offer something slightly more formal, ideal for entertaining extended family and friends. Dining sets are also available in a range of sizes, so you can tailor the option to suit your seating requirements and the size of your space.

All of our quality dining sets feature a glass topped table with most also having the option of a parasol for shade in the summer. 

Firepit sets

Rattan firepit sets are another very popular choice, and for good reason. Firepit sets come in a range of styles, including corner and dining sets, so there really is an option to suit you and your garden space.

Firepit sets are perfect for allowing you to enjoy your garden space once the sun goes down or when the UK weather isn’t at its warmest. Featuring a stunning firepit in the centre of the table, these sets are a gorgeous feature of any outdoor space as well as offering heat when the weather gets a bit chilly.

Sofa sets

Rattan sofa sets are perfect for combining a comfortable space to relax in with casual dining. As with the sets we’ve talked about above, sofa sets come in a range of sizes so you can find an option to suit your space.

Most sofa sets feature a sofa and a couple of chairs alongside a glass topped table, but some options also feature additional stools and benches. If you’re considering a sofa set, make sure you think carefully about how many people you’d want to be able to entertain.

Cube sets

Rattan cube sets are ideal for those with a smaller garden that are looking to maximise the space they have. With cube sets, the chairs fit neatly underneath the table so that when they’re not in use, you have a nice compact set that doesn’t take up much room.

As with the other styles, cube sets are available in a range of sizes so you’ll be able to find an option that suits you and your garden.

Loungers and daybeds

Rattan sun loungers and daybeds are perfect for those looking for a comfortable spot to lie down and enjoy the UK summer. Our range comes in a variety of styles and colours so you’ll be able to find an option to suit you and your garden space perfectly. Some of our loungers and daybeds also feature a table for placing your drinks and nibbles on, making them perfect for lazy afternoons spent in the sunshine.

Egg chairs

Hanging rattan egg chairs are ideal for those looking for a unique feature to their outdoor space. This style of outdoor furniture has surged in popularity recently and it's not hard to see why. This option is perfect for those looking for a comfortable space to relax outdoors.
