Seven of the best garden sofas

Relax and unwind with our pick of the best garden sofas.

A good garden sofa offers comfortable seating away from the formal functionality of a garden table and chairs. Whether you’re reading, having a few drinks after work, or simply taking the weight off your feet, a garden sofa makes it easy to enjoy your garden in comfort.

With a garden sofa, you can bring all the luxury of your living room out into nature and after a long day’s gardening, you can relax into your garden sofa while you enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Garden sofas are great for entertaining and can be the most important part of the social area of your garden. Some of the biggest sets can seat seven and with large corner units, you can add further seating to seat even more of your friends and family.

We’ve put together a selection of garden sofas to help you find one that’s just right for you. We’ve included different styles and sizes to suit a range of tastes and gardens big and small.

Upgrading your patio? Take a look at our collection of garden furniture sets, loungers, and deck chairs.

And, if you’re entertaining your friends, check out our test of the best charcoal BBQs, in collaboration with BBC Good Food.
