Garden furniture

 

Are there fashion trends in garden furniture? Yes, absolutely. Material, colour and size of garden furniture have changed at the same speed as in normal fashion.

In the 1940s to 50s much garden furniture was made of bamboo or wood. Many of these pieces were incredibly attractive, and with the most beautiful of carvings. In winter the garden furniture was put away for the season and in this way garden furniture was well looked after.

In the 1960s and 70s bamboo and the beautiful carvings retreated to be replaced by more minimalist furniture. Designers also began to experiment with e.g. woven plastic seats, and colours used in garden furniture became brighter and more adventurous.

In the 1980s and 90s the majority of garden furniture was made of plastic. The over-consumption and use-and-throw-away mentality of the period shone through in our garden furniture. Most people let their garden furniture stand outside in winter, only to be thrown out the next summer for new garden furniture to be bought.

Now in the 00s and 10s sustainability has become popular and plastic Havemøbler - Polyrattan has fallen from grace in favour once again of more natural materials. Garden furniture in teak and other wood types is among the most popular. If you look after this type of garden furniture well and store it inside in winter, it can last almost a lifetime. But also the material polyrattan has become extremely popular, especially due to its durability, which is unbeatable. Garden furniture can last for many years, and in this way help to protect the environment.

In the last couple of years we have also begun to see garden furniture in the form of lounge furniture – sofas, outside bars and large outdoor beds – finding its way into our gardens.

At Lauritz.com you can always see a wide and impressive range of garden furniture. But also plant containers, gas barbecues and parasols are to be found among our large selection.
