Reclining Garden Chairs & Rattan Furniture UK

Reclining Garden Chairs 2019 Updated

If you haven’t seen the recent video, Garden Centre Shopping now offer some amazing reclining rattan garden chairs for your outdoor space, including a lovely new reclining and rocking bistro set with cushions included. They are made from weatherproof rattan which is far superior to the cheaper alternative found at supermarkets, a premium product that’s well worth the money.

I love relaxing out the back of my house, and there’s nothing better to accompany that than some fantastic all weather rattan garden furniture. Whether you like the traditional dark aluminium variety, or the new age synthetic rattan, it can be the perfect spot to get away from it all, and truly have a peaceful few minutes alone. And of course when you’re having a bbq with family and friends, you will need some robust dining table and chair sets, that seat you well into the evening, and while eating at the table.

Choosing the Right Garden Furniture in the UK

Often the toughest part of the process is choosing the right style of furniture, as there as so many to choose from, but you may also want to consider the quality of garden furniture you are purchasing, especially when it is wicker, as there are many fake imitation sets, which can last a lot less than the real deal. Rattan garden furniture is my personal favourite, and I will go into the various sets that I have in my garden later on.

Quality of Rattan Furniture

This is an important part of the process, and you want to make sure that your rattan is all weather. There are many scams around, so choosing robust garden furniture is important, and making sure it has an all weather guarantee is essential.

Buying Garden Furniture Online

This can often be tricky, as sitting on your garden furniture before purchasing is one of the main rules. If you do opt to buy it online, make sure the company is respectable, hopefully backed by a real business, and comes with money back guarantees just in case you aren’t happy with it.


It is also important to be fully contacted throughout the buying process, so asking a question about your furniture before hand can often bring peace of mind that the company is hot on customer service. From my own experience in purchasing garden furniture online here in the United Kingdom, I can recommend Garden Centre Shopping, as they are based in a real garden centre in Leicestershire, and offer money back, and all weather guarantees on all of their furniture, including rattan dining sets, sofa sets, and bistro sets.

The Best Products

The majority of English consumers now prefer to purchase things that save them time, and this relates to garden furniture, because they are choosing time and again, to go with a no maintenance option. This all-weather garden furniture, is designed for “set and forget”, where you leave it outside all year, without covering it. This is better than the alternative of oiling and sanding a wooden bench, or buying pricey covers that don’t last more than a season.

The best all weather garden furniture we’ve found is:

  1. Winawood – robust, natural finish, 2 year guarantee, long lasting, good selection of colours.
  2. Rattan – UV stabilised, hand woven, synthetic, aluminium frame, guarantee.

If you can find a retailer offering those, then you should be on your way to finding a good product that’s value for money.

There have been some recent studies on Winawood in October 2017, which have found it to be far superior than the Polywood furniture alternative, being more durable and comfortable. Winawood garden furniture comes in a range of dining sets, benches, love seats, and coffee sets, in colours such as teak, duck egg green, brown, white, blue and grey. You can purchase Winawood online, or browse the range of Winawood reviews, including those on the 3 seater Winawood Sandwick styled bench.
