Type Of Furniture – What people want from the modern formal garden is no different from the requirements of all garden, past and present – namely, comfort practicability and beauty. The style of furniture should be in keeping with the spirit of the garden, so for spaces planned on geometric principles, simple shapes and lines and are essential; elaborate ornamental design have no role here.
There are new materials to choice from as well as different ways of using traditional materials that suit the elegance of contemporary modernity. Bespoke furniture, crafted by a designer, can often double as sculpture but if you intend to sit in it, make sure that comfort is not sacrificed to style. While creativity and inventiveness take us forward, sheer opportunism has taught us to make use or sections of stone pillar.
If furniture for backyard is sited as an important focus of the design, it must be solidly visible when viewed from distance, both structurally and in terms of its colour. Such seats may have a massive grandeur or a strikingly dominant from and pale tones will stand out best from afar.
In more intimate or enclosed spaces, seats may be tucked out of sight and “happened upon”, in which case they can be designed with a lighter touch. Seating that is planned to be more low-key might be made from lightweight aluminium, slatted metal or wirework so that it is semitransparent. If built in, a simple bench could be supported by two low walls of glass brick.
