Garden Seating

In the past, as now, it was considered fashionable to have stylish outdoor furniture.

The Victorian garden and veranda were often as extravagantly furnished as the accompanying house or mansion. Designing marvelous gardens was a passion during the 19th century; as much thought was put into choosing outdoor furniture as was in the furnishing of the home. Seating arrangements would be attractive and ornate, bringing an “indoor living-room” atmosphere to the outdoor garden. Cast iron or wrought iron seating was a popular choice for the Victorian garden or veranda. See examples of extravagantly designed wrought iron patio furniture.
