6 garden furniture trends that'll be huge this summer

Etsy sees a major boom in garden furniture...

Carla Challis

We’ve never shopped for garden furniture like we are in 2021 – that’s what restaurant closures and a pandemic will do to you. Despite the uncertain weather situation and bars, pubs and restaurants reopening, we’re utilising every room in our home, gardens included, so it’s no surprise that the demand for garden furniture and decor in the UK is higher than ever – Etsy UK reported a 2644% increase in searches for patio furniture in the last three months alone.

Functional and classic garden furniture aside, there’s a few key garden décor trends that are already proving to be in demand, according to Etsy’s experts. Take note: these are the top garden furniture trends 2021 to shop:
