The gardens of our homes can be a haven for peaceful sitting, social events and enjoying the nature of British spring and summer. Where we like to enjoy a moment of self-care and relaxation, garden love seats can become a perfect place to sit back and chill out.
Traditionally made out of rattan, metal or wood, love seats generally come fully attached as two-person chairs with a table in the middle. Nowadays, you can find love seats in all sorts of modern and contemporary designs - including the infamous egg chairs.
When it comes to our gardens, quality and style are key. That's why Grazia's been on the hunt for the best garden love seats that you can get your hands on. Including choices from MADE, John Lewis and Wayfair, you'll want these garden chairs to relax on ASAP, especially with spring jumping into full action.
What is the best garden love seat?
Well, that really depends on what you're looking for and how you want to decorate your exterior. Love seats are generally made to sit two people (hence the name), so you'll want to make sure you have enough space to fit this in a place in your garden. Where you may already have a social seating area, love seats are a great option for more mellow, solitary spaces that allow you to have some peace.
There are a variety of types of love seats to choose from. We've found options best for your style and aesthetic - whether you want a sleek, modern choice or something that focuses on comfort and cushion.
