8 Ways to Style Your Garden Using Outdoor Fabrics and Furniture

As we emerge from winter’s gloom, it’s finally time to start getting outside. Whether you have a large open garden, or small enclosed patio, you’d be surprised at how you can transform your space with outdoor fabrics, furniture and accessories.

How do you create a great outdoor space to entertain or relax in? Here are 8 ideas to help you fall in love with your garden: 

Create impact with colourful outdoor fabric

Who said outdoor furniture should be beige? Using outdoor fabrics in bold colours or interesting patterns creates a statement in your garden. From geometric fabric like our Acapulco design and jungle prints like our Lima Jungle fabric, to deep reds and lime greens, we have an extensive range of gorgeous fabrics that will make your outdoor space pop. 

Fashion an indoor / outdoor living space

Fashion an indoor / outdoor living space

Nowadays, the choice of materials available for your outdoor seating is vast. Gone are the days of scratchy, acrylic cushions, instead your outdoor furniture can resemble and feel like a comfy living room with high-quality and beautifully-designed outdoor fabrics.  

Our outdoor tapestry fabrics have been specifically designed with our partner Spanish Mill, using specific yarns and technology, to create a truly brilliant fabric that is durable for outdoor use but has an indoor fabric feel. Making it easy to replicate your indoor interior design style. Introduce other items of furniture to the great outdoors like pouffes, rugs and mirrors to create an extension to your living room.  

With festoon lighting, you can create a beautiful, cosy, tranquil atmosphere to relax in while still breathing in the fresh, summer air.

Go vintage with deckchairs

Deckchairs conjure up images of coastal English towns - of ice cream and padding in rockpools. Recreate a sense of the British seaside with our deckchair fabric, specifically made for the great outdoors. If you already have a deckchair - or a frame - our video teaches you how to recover it yourself.

 

Create blissful snoozing areas

There’s nothing better than stretching out in the sun and reading, snoozing or listening to your favourite podcast. If your garden’s full of trees, attach a hammock to swing in, bohemian-style. You can make your own with our wide range of fabrics made specifically for the great outdoors. Our Malaga Rainbow Fabric, for example, is thick and durable and has a water repellent finish making it the perfect choice for a garden hammock.

For a little more luxury, how about introducing a daybed? Daybeds allow you to relax in style and are infinitely more chic than the humble sun lounger. For ultimate elegance consider our Barley Outdoor Fabric. This timeless fabric with a gorgeous, woven herringbone pattern, comes in a range of soft pastel shades and despite being water repellent, stain resistant and strong it has a particularly soft feel.

Consider zoned off areas

Designating specific seating areas for seating or entertaining - particularly when set away from the house - can add a touch of mystery and excitement to a garden.

 

Of course, logistics have to be considered, but a secret seating area across a pond or within a walled section of garden creates an alluring sanctuary.

Build in a bench

Build in a bench

In smaller gardens or cosy patio areas, a built-in bench is a great space saver. A seating section built into a raised, wooden or concrete wall is multifunctional and easily maintained. It can be lined with cushions or throws, just like one of our customers has done here with the Botanical Outdoor Fabric in Indigo. During the winter months, pot plants can replace any outdoor fabric.

Keep cosy with a fire pit

Keep cosy with a fire pit

English summers aren’t known for their balmy nights. Fire pits are an excellent way to keep warm and carry on the party once the sun goes down. What’s more, they’re also great at keeping kids entertained - they’ll love toasting marshmallows over the flames. Need more ways to entertain kids in the garden? See next!

Create a kids area

Create a kids area

For children, the beanbag tends to be a beloved addition to any bedroom or playroom. So why not bring them outdoors? Huge bean bags made specifically for the garden are perfect for kids because not only are they durable and weather-resistant but the fabric is stain-resistant too - meaning that, it’s not the end of the world if they’re sloshed with copious amounts of cola. 

And if you’re looking to create a little bit of shade in your garden for the kids, a teepee works wonders too!
