Modern Designer Garden Furniture

When sunny days finally arrive, our thoughts turn to the great outdoors, and many of us look for ways to improve our gardens and outdoor spaces. Designer garden furniture and lighting can make all the difference when you’re looking to create an inviting, contemporary yet natural ambiance. Whether you’re holding a barbecue, tea party or simply relaxing with a cool drink, Ferrious contemporary furniture will add a touch of luxury to your home.

Modern contemporary design focuses as much on functionality as aesthetic appeal, and you may be pleasantly surprised by how hard-wearing and easy to maintain our designer garden furniture is. Many pieces are wipe-clean and shun fussy decoration and trim in favour of neat, minimalist lines.

A  Benchmark for Garden Benches and Chairs

Ferrious have carefully selected a range of high-end designer outdoor benches and chairs to suit a variety of tastes and situations. Alvar and Aino Aalto’s Artek company combined modern materials and techniques with time-honoured craftsmanship, and Ferrious can supply Artek pieces designed by both Alvar himself and his protégé, Ilmari Tapiovaara of domus chair fame.

A company which epitomises contemporary furniture design are New York’s Knoll Studio, which provides more than forty designs for the permanent design collection if the Museum of Modern Art, also in New York. Ferrious offer several pieces of Knoll designer garden furniture. Co-founder Florence is renowned for her signature benches, perfect if you’re looking to create an impression in your conservatory or summer house.

Guaranteed to provide a real talking point, Knoll also feature Maya Lin’s sitting stones in a variety of bold primary colours, available with or without the sand ballast. Or you might like the look of Harry Bertoia’s elegant side chair, constructed of wire rods. Bertoia is associated with producing designs full of light and space, lending an airy feel to your garden. He later went on to experiment with sculpture and sound, even releasing a set of musical albums in which his sculptures are ‘played’ by nature. American Don Chadwick is also represented by Knoll. His colourful, lightweight, UV-protected side chairs are designed to spark lively conversation.

For rustic charm with a contemporary edge, consider Tom Dixon’s offcut benches. Constructed from birch waney edges and available in his iconic orange ‘fluoro’ or natural wood, Dixon’s bench comes flat-packed and is assembled using wooden pegs rather than screws.

Another of Ferrious’s featured British designers is John Pawson. His unique minimalist bench can be orientated for either sitting, leaning or lying and can be ordered in terrazzo concrete or fumed oak.

Fine Lighting Solutions
Once your designer garden furniture is in place, the subtle or striking play of light can create different effects, depending on the mood and atmosphere you want to create. Among our top brands, we supply a fascinating selection of lights from Venetian firm Foscarini, featuring pieces from several contemporary designers, including Jozeph Forakis, Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, Karim Rashid and Marc Sadler. Each of these designers offers something unique, from Forakis’s tall, elliptical Havana lamps and the enchanting glowing spheres of Ludovica and Roberto Palomba to Rashid’s futuristic blobs of light. For a more classically contemporary look, Spanish lighting specialists Marset offer minimalist designs by Catalan duo Joan Verdugo and Joan Gaspar.
