With so many options available, it’s a daunting task knowing where to start so here’s a quick guide to choosing quality modern garden dining sets.
If you have a bijou balcony you might be looking for a high-end outdoor bistro set such as Grythtyttan Urban garden furniture – a stylish range of modern Swedish galvanised steel stackable garden chairs and folding garden tables, or perhaps Royal Botania Taboela small folding garden table and Royal Botania QT 55 stackable garden dining armchair which are both available in a range of chic finishes.
If you are lucky to have unlimited space in your terrace or garden and are looking to host lots of family and friends, you could consider the FueraDentro Nimio 12 seater modern garden dining table which is available in a range of chic colour finishes, or the contemporary Royal Botania Ninix 360 extendable rectangular dining table that seats 10-12 and Ninix 55 luxury garden dining chairs.
Modern oval and circular garden dining tables are a great option for small spaces and also create a more convivial dining experience. Royal Botania OZON quality round & oval garden dining tables are available in a range of sizes and colour finishes, and also include a central lazy susan so no one misses out at lunch.
The high-end materials used for modern garden dining furniture available from Encompass are of the highest quality. As they are the best of the best, many of these materials come at a price. However, these high quality materials give you the peace of mind that your furniture is conceived and made for a lifetime of use, and not to be disposed of within a season or two. Moreover, most of these high-end garden furniture materials are recyclable when they finally come to the end of their life.
Modern stainless steel garden dining furniture is a perennial favourite – it’s strong, corrosion-resistant, and these days is available in a range of chic powder coat finishes, as well as regular brushed stainless steel finish. Contemporary aluminium garden dining furniture is also strong and weather-proof and also has the advantage of being a little lighter than stainless steel, and is available in a stylish pallet of powder coat colour finishes.
Many of our quality contemporary garden dining chairs have seat and back upholstered in Batyline fabric. Batyline is a synthetic mesh that is UV/stain/water resistant and has a comfortable bounce to it, and is specifically designed to be left outdoors indefinitely.
Teak hard wood is also a high performance outdoor material. Modern teak garden dining furniture is naturally oil rich, which protects the wood against ageing and corrosion, and the timber naturally turns to a silver/grey patina over a period of time.
There are also some unique high quality materials available for the real design aficionado. Viteo Slim is a range of architectural Corian garden dining furniture. Corian is a material more usually associated with high end interior furniture and surfaces, but is also highly practical for use outdoors, being durable and UV resistant.
HPL (High Pressure Laminate) is a material much favoured by our German colleagues from Conmoto. The company supply the Zen design Conmoto Tension garden dining furniture range or tables & benches, which is available in Anthracite, White or Taupe colour finishes. Usually more associated as an architectural cladding surface, HPL also makes perfect modern garden furniture – the material is UV/ shock / scratch-proof.
In general most luxury outdoor dining furniture for the garden is chosen in timeless finishes such as brushed stainless steel, teak, or a Black, White or Taupe colour finish. You can add further design flourish and accents of colour by adding a vibrant colour cushion to your designer garden chair, or specify a stylish marble effect garden dining table such as Royal Botania Zidiz.
Modern teak and stainless steel garden dining furniture and galvanised steel and teak garden dining sets are contenders for ultimate timeless design – these high quality materials are simplicity itself and will last indefinitely.
On the rare occasions when the UK gets some sun, we want to get outdoors and enjoy the warmth. It can be a tad distracting having the sun burning down when you’re having lunch around your designer garden table, so Encompass Furniture offer a range of quality garden dining table parasols to keep you cool.
On the flip side, nighttime entertaining around your designer garden dining tables and chairs can be a chilly affair! Encompass Furniture offer an exclusive collection of garden dining table heaters from Heatsail which are not only highly functional but have timeless modern design.
What do with garden seat cushions when you’re not using them, and what about a garden trolley for bringing that epicurean feast to the table? Encompass offer a wide range of high-end outdoor cushion boxes, modern garden trolley carts and luxury outdoor accessories.
