Our best-selling 2-seater outdoor furniture sets for Summer 2024

Buying a compact 2-seater outdoor furniture set can be a tricky decision for several reasons, depending on your specific needs and preferences…

If your outside space is limited or you need a more compact garden table and chairs, then a 2-seater outdoor furniture set is the perfect solution. If you have a small balcony or patio or you want to zone a larger space into different functions such as dining, lounging and cooking, then they are ideal for maximising the use of any available free space without overwhelming the area.

Even in a larger garden, if you want to create a quiet corner or you simply prefer the intimacy and cosiness of a bistro-style set, then our 2-seaters are perfect for couples or grabbing a morning coffee with a friend. They provide a more personal and relaxed environment for conversation and connection.

If you’re on a budget, then a 2-seater is a great way to get value for money too. More affordable than our larger 4 to 10-seater sets, they offer a cost-effective solution for furnishing your outdoor area without compromising quality, style, comfort, and most importantly, functionality.

With fewer pieces to care for, maintenance also becomes a much easier task. Cleaning, storing, and covering a 2-seater set is more manageable, saving you time and effort. If you like to rearrange your outdoor space or store your furniture inside during bad weather, then a 2-seater set offers greater flexibility

A 2-seater garden table set is also a versatile solution. They are adaptable to various settings, whether you’re using them for morning coffee, evening drinks, or simply relaxing with a book, they will suit multiple purposes. Plus, with fewer pieces to purchase, it will give you more budget, and allow you to invest in a higher-quality set that is durable and comfortable.

2-seater garden furniture sets are available to purchase in a variety of designs, materials, styles and colours, allowing you to find one that fits with your style, outside space, and how you like to use it.

In this article, we want to explore the different types available, share some of our insight on how to find the right one and take a closer look at the best-selling 2-seater patio sets in our collection.

What are the different types of 2-seater patio sets?

A 2-seater set is a practical, stylish, and economical garden furniture choice for enhancing your outdoor living space. There are a host of different types of 2-seater tables and sets available, each designed to cater to different tastes, functional needs, and style/design preferences.

Some of the common types on sale (both in stores and online) in the UK include:

  1. 2-Seater Bistro Sets
    A 2-seater bistro set such as those in the Lazy Susan collection will typically consist of a small round table and two dining-style chairs. Often made of metal (like our cast aluminium), you will also find them in wood, plastic, and rattan. They are ideal for small outside spaces like balconies or compact patios and decks.

  2. 2-Seater Conversation Sets
    A conversation set is similar to the above in that it will include two chairs but with a smaller side table. They are commonly made from rattan, wicker, wood, or metal, paired with plush cushions for added comfort. While two small to eat, they are ideal for creating a cosy spot for drinks, relaxation and conversation.

  3. 2-Seater Bar Sets
    Featuring a taller table and bar-style seating, a 2-seat bar set will provide an elevated seating position for enjoying al-fresco drinks. Typically made from metal or wood, they often feature padded or woven seats. Ideal for enjoying drinks and snacks, they are a great option if you have a garden bar or an urban balcony.

  4. 2-Seater Folding Sets
    Similar in style and function to a bistro set but with the additional feature of both the table and chairs being able to fold flat for easy storage. Often made from lightweight materials like steel, aluminium or plastic, they are ideal for outside spaces where furniture needs to be stored away, such as on small balconies, or if you like to frequently move furniture to make the most of evening/afternoon sun.

  5. 2-Seater Adirondack Sets
    Popular in the USA, they have recently made their way over to UK shores and the set will include two Adirondack-style chairs with a small table. Adirondacks are known for their wide armrests and slanted backs. Commonly made from wood or a durable plastic resin, they are ideal for creating a laidback, rustic American porch feel on patios, decks, or gardens with a great view.

  6. 2-Seater Rocking Chair Sets
    Featuring two rocking or glider chairs paired with a small coffee table, 2-seater Rocking Sets are typically made from wood or metal, with cushions for comfort. Ideal for providing a laidback gentle rocking motion for all-day comfort and relaxation.

  7. 2-Seater Dining Sets
    Again, similar in structure to a bistro set, they include two chairs with a slightly larger tabletop to provide more room for plates and cutlery and the option to pull up an extra chair or two. Suitable for eating full outdoor meals, in the UK they are readily available in various materials such as wood, metal, or plastic. Ideal for small outdoor dining areas where meals are enjoyed.

  8. 2-Seater Coffee Table Sets
    A 2-seater coffee table set will feature 2 seats (upright dining-style or low lounge chairs) with a low coffee-style table. Typically designed for comfortable conversation, they are often made from materials like wicker, metal, wood, or durable plastic resins. They often come with cushions for added comfort and are ideal for placing drinks, snacks, books, or decorative items.

  9. 2-Seater Garden Bench Sets
    A 2-seater garden bench set typically refers to an outdoor furniture ensemble designed to provide seating for two people. The 2-person bench is the main seating component and popular materials include wood, metal, wicker, or durable plastic resins. Garden benches often feature a backrest and armrests for added comfort paired with a a small table to provide a convenient surface for placing drinks, books, or garden decor.

  10. 2-Seater Sofa Sets
    A 2-seater outdoor sofa set is designed for comfort. The sofa is often made with weather-resistant materials such as wicker, metal, teak, or durable plastics. It usually comes with upholstery made from outdoor-safe fabrics that resist moisture and fading. The set will include a low coffee-style table to place in front of or beside the sofa. Ideal for kicking back and sharing drinks while you soak up the sun.

What all of the above have in common, regardless of function or materials, is they’re perfect for small patios, balconies, gardens, or any outdoor space where a cosy seating arrangement for two is desired.

Each type of 2-seater patio set will offer unique benefits and is suited to different outdoor environments and uses.

When selecting a type of 2-seat set, consider factors such as the available space, how you like to use the space, and the overall look you wish to achieve in your outside space.

How to purchase the right 2-seater set for your outside space

Purchasing the right 2-seater set for your outdoor space involves considering several factors to ensure it fits your needs and preferences.

Here's our simple 10-step guide to help you choose the perfect set for summer 2024:

  1. Asses
    Start by considering the layout of your outside space. Think about how a set will fit and ensure there's enough room for movement and additional decor.

  2. Needs
    Purchase a 2-seat set that fits best with how you like or plan to use the space, whether it is for relaxing, dining, entertaining, or just reading a good book.

  3. Measure
    Determine the exact dimensions of the space where you plan to put it and the dimensions of the 2-seater set to see if the space will still function comfortably and safely when in situ.

  4. Type
    Choose the type of seating and table style you think will look and function best. For example, would a bench against a wall with a low coffee table fit best or would a bistro table with dining-style chairs give you the best functionality?

  5. Material
    Select materials that are best suited to the UK climate and the level of care and maintenance they require. Consider how much upkeep each material requires.

  6. Style
    Opt for a set style (classic, modern, rustic, etc) that matches the pervading style in your home and garden.

  7. Quality
    Look for quality materials and construction. Ensure the materials are treated for UV protection, moisture resistance, etc. You can order our fee metal and fabric sample packs here.

  8. Budget
    Set yourself a budget to prevent overspending. Just remember that higher quality materials will cost more but it will mean less maintenance, better durability and they will last longer.

  9. Reviews
    Look for reviews and ratings from past customers to get an idea of the set's comfort, durability, and overall satisfaction with the seller.

  10. Guarantee
    Shop around to find the best deals, but be wary of sets that seem too cheap. For peace of mind, always check the returns policy and warranty/guarantee.

By carefully considering these 10 simple factors, you can find a 2-seater outdoor furniture set that will fit your space, meet your patio needs, and enhance your outdoor living experience for summer 2024.
