To furnish an entire garden, you need various pieces of furniture and to choose them you first need to establish how much space we have available so as not to buy too many pieces of furniture and load the aesthetics of the garden.
We divide the garden into zones and for each one we choose the right furniture trying to match the materials and styles of the different areas between them.
For the dining area we buy a table and chairs, choose a size that can accommodate all the people we usually host and, if we have little space, we can buy an extendable model or a folding table to be used only when we need it and, in addition to the chairs to be placed around the table, let us also get some folding chairs to use in case of unexpected guests. The best wood for this type of furniture is, without a doubt, teak.
For the relaxation area we can buy a living room already complete or a sofa and armchairs to combine with each other, often also adding a small table where you can put the magazines or where to have coffee. Also for this kind of furniture the best wood is teak but the most characteristic and scenographic is rattan.
To complete the decor you can add a gazebo to create a shaded area under which you can place the living room.
Don't forget a wooden garden cupboard where you can store all your gardening tools.
