Eye-catchers and favourite spots rolled into one: stylish garden benches
Do you have a nice garden in front of your house and don’t really know how best to use it? If you don’t have green fingers and wouldn’t know where to start when it comes to vegetable or flower beds, you could consider placing one or two attractive garden benches in front of your house. These are not only effective on the patio or in a conservatory. A cute bench next to the front door radiates unconventional charm and immediately conjures up an inviting atmosphere. The selected branded models at AmbienteDirect are simply perfect for this. Take a look at our range and see the quality, comfort and design of our benches for yourself!
Different materials – many design possibilities
The question of a robust and long-lasting material should not be underestimated, especially when it comes to outdoor furniture. After all, your garden bench is exposed to the elements from spring to autumn, so it absolutely makes a difference whether it is made of plastic or aluminium. And the effect of the bench in your garden also varies from material to material.
Wrought-iron variants captivate with their timeless beauty and always have a playful look, especially if you position them under a flowering rose arch. The French designer label Fermob has the ideal products. Whether it’s a narrow palisade bench or a park bench-like seat – bright colours are a typical characteristic of this brand and set colourful accents in your outdoor area. Metal benches also score highly thanks to many other advantages:
To prevent those pesky rust stains, benches made of iron and steel should be painted with a high-quality powder coating. Modern garden benches made of aluminium, for example from Skagerak, also have the advantage that they are very light and can be moved around easily.
If you prefer a weatherproof material for your new garden bench, a high-quality plastic version, like the extravagant models from ames, are the right choice for you. Dirt can be removed easily with a damp cloth. A soft brush can also be used for benches with polyrattan wickerwork.
Nobody can deny the natural charm of benches made of wood such as teak, eucalyptus or acacia. In combination with a green environment made up of trees, bushes and shrubs, you can create an enchanting oasis of well-being in your own garden. Ideally, you should choose real tropical woods, as these are better able to cope with moisture and temperature fluctuations. However, wooden garden benches are not designed to stay outside all year round and should be stored in winter. To make sure the wonderful appearance and the high quality of the material is maintained for a long time, regular varnishing with special maintenance oils is recommended.
We have a range of classy wooden benches for the garden from the renowned manufacturer Jan Kurtz, among others. Its designer furniture inspires with its timelessly beautiful and minimalist look. If you particularly like this brand’s style, you can also purchase the garden benches in handy sets together with a matching garden table.
Seating comfort in a class of its own, not to be missed. Particularly if you want to refurnish your lounge area, benches with super-soft upholstery are a must. The products made by Conmoto include comfortable garden benches like this, which immediately invite you to sit down and relax. Simple and yet elegant, they are sure to impress at first glance. Textile fabrics can be easily cleaned with soap and water. It is better to avoid aggressive cleaning agents in order not to damage the material’s protective layer.
If you opt for a garden bench made of a different material, you can add extra outdoor seat cushions and pads for even more comfort.
Design meets functionality
If you only have a small balcony, there’s no reason why you can’t have a chic bench. On the contrary: sunbeds combined with an extendable garden bench are especially ideal for small outdoor areas. AmbienteDirect stocks clever pieces of furniture just like this from the Danish manufacturer Skagerak. The models from emu, on the other hand, can be easily stacked on top of each other and thus offer more space on the patio or balcony.
