So how do you define modern furniture? What makes a piece of Modern Garden Furniture? Well a quick Google search defines modern furniture as follows:
Modern furniture refers to furniture produced from the late 19th century through to the present that is influenced by modernism. Post-World War II ideals of cutting excess, commodification, and practicality of materials in design heavily influenced the aesthetic of the furniture.
At Lazy Susan, we’ve always seen our furniture as more, I guess ‘classically’ styled. Not traditional in the old fashioned sense, but pieces of furniture that won’t age. Garden furniture that will sit on your patio for the next decade, and not date, not age in terms of the overall styling. And whilst the styling has always had more of a classical look, the construction and materials used, are very much of the times, and totally modern.
However, we felt there was a gap in our offer. Our classically styled pieces could never be accused of being fussy or too ornate. They have a simple timeless elegance that is incredibly popular in the UK and abroad. But we wanted to mix things up, broaden our offer. Bring out a collection of pieces that encompass what, at least to me personally, represents the best of modern design. Functional, simple, stylish clean lines, all constructed from the latest technology and materials.
What we’re launching for summer 2017 is modern to me in the truest sense of the definition, and just like our classically styled furniture, it will not date. Simple, practically styled garden chairs, tables and sun loungers that will stand the test of time. Constructed from materials that will stand up to the elements, so there’s no reason they too can’t sit on your patio for many years to come.
The Lazy Susan Modern Garden Furniture Collection
Our new Modern Garden furniture collection offers an extensive wide range of stylish outdoor dining tables, all constructed from strong, resilient, aluminium, combined with toughened, outdoor glass table tops. The co-ordinating chairs pair aluminium with a hard-wearing PVC coated outdoor fabric, which is both weather resistant and incredibly comfortable to sit on.
And we’re not all style over substance too… Our furniture has to not only look good, but function is just as important to us. Materials that are designed to stand up to the elements Construction that is built to last. Our new Modern Garden Furniture collection is highly practical. There are tables that extend to deliver you increased flexibility for when friends unexpectedly pop over, removing the need to have a large table filling your patio at all times. Chairs stack to also save space, and all the pieces are light enough to easily pick up and move, but sturdy enough to not blow over in a breeze.
The Lazy Susan Modern Garden Furniture Collection
My favourites from the new Modern collection would have to be the 6 seater Violet in the stunning slate grey finish, or maybe the 8 seater Virginia with its pared-back aluminium table top. Both sets are family-friendly, but for me they get extra points in the contemporary style stakes.
