Conservatory Furniture – Choose with Care

Top tips

  • Cane furniture is most practical
  • Sunlight will bleach wooden furniture
  • Choose heavyweight furnishing fabrics to delay rotting from sunlight

Conservatory Furniture

Whatever your conservatory is used for – sitting room, dining room, playroom or office – there is a very good reason why cane remains the number one material when it comes to furniture.

While it makes sense to choose furniture and furnishings for your conservatory that complement those in the main house it is also important to remember that this is a room that is bathed in light throughout the year, subject to strong sunshine during the summer and, if there are children in the family, probably gets a good pounding.

Quite simply, cane ticks all the boxes. It’s a natural material that is sturdy enough to stand up to the rough and tumble of family life and the regular ‘through traffic’ in a conservatory, but light enough to carry out into the garden if required.

It maintains its good looks with very little upkeep and will even thrive on neglect.

It’s suitable for everything from chairs and sofas to tables and storage units. From thick cane to the more elegant rattan, there is a wide range of furniture and accessories to suit all tastes.

Clearly heavy furniture is out of place in a room that is predominantly glass. And although there is plenty of wooden furniture that will look good in a conservatory, remember that sunlight will eventually bleach the wood.

Of course, glass shouldn’t be overlooked – except perhaps in families with small and/or boisterous children. A glass-topped table, especially, looks stunning in a conservatory, maximising the feeling of space and light.

Cushions and soft furnishings in a conservatory will get plenty of wear and tear so the materials should always be washable. Choose heavyweight fabrics that won’t rot in strong sunlight – be aware, though, that there is little that can be done to prevent colours fading.
Furnishing your conservatory needs as much consideration as any other room in your house – it’s hard to go wrong, though, if you stick to cane and glass.

Cane FurnitureUse Cane Furniture throughout your home, not just in the conservatory or garden room:
