We’re all about the outdoor living trend this season. Forget boring plastic garden furniture that’s functional but not especially stylish: this is all about creating a natural flow between your home and your garden, layering up luxury pieces on your patio that wouldn’t look out of place in your lounge or living room.

A garden sofa will create that homely feel and provide a cosy spot to sit outside and enjoy your morning coffee solo, or as a space to catch up with family and friends. Finish with colourful scatter cushions, an outdoor rug and leafy plants to zone your seating area and add texture to the space.

From on-trend rattan and egg-shaped designs to stylish corner sofas and lounge sets that provide space for the whole party, we’ve found something for all tastes and budgets in our edit of the best garden sofas.

See Red’s edit on the best outdoor sofas for a space you can enjoy for years to come…
